Dwight Yoakam - Fast As You Lyrics

 

[Verse1]

Maybe someday I'll be strong

Maybe it won't be long

I'll be the one who's tough

You'll be the one who's got it rough

It won't be long and

Maybe I'll be real strong

 

[Verse 2]

Maybe I'll do things right

Maybe I'll start tonight

You'll learn to cry like me

Baby let's just wait and see

Maybe I'll start tonight

And do things right

 

[Pre-Chorus]

You'll control me

And oh so boldly

Rule me 'til I'm free

'Til the pain that shakes me

Finally makes me

Get up off of my knees

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

 

[Chorus]

Maybe I'll be as fast as you

Maybe I'll break hearts too

But I think that you'll slow down

When your turn to hurt comes around

Maybe I'll break hearts

And be as fast as you

 

Uhhh

 

[Pre-Chorus]

You'll control me

And oh so boldly

Rule me 'til I'm free

'Til the pain that shakes me

Finally makes me

Get up off of my knees

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

 

[Chorus]

Maybe I'll be as fast as you

Maybe I'll break hearts too

But I think that you'll slow down

When your turn to hurt comes around

Maybe I'll break hearts

And be as fast as you

Maybe I'll break hearts

And be as fast as you

 

Ah, sookie

 

[Spoken under Guitar Outro]

Maybe someday I'll be strong

Maybe it won't be long

I'll be the one who's strong

You'll be the one gonna cry

 

You're gonna cry like me

We'll just, uh, wait and see

Maybe I'll be as fast as you

Maybe I'll break hearts too
