Song Description

How easily a relationship can be ripped apart by one night of passion in a motel room......

Story Behind the Song

The term Reckless Lives came to me a few weeks ago and I thought it was a sad phrase that could be the basis for a heartache song. I don't write many songs of in this genre and I'm pleased with the way it turned out.

this songbwill find a home for sure

    - SKY HIGH MUSIC LABS

Very smooth story-song with a nice blend on the instruments, and easy-to-follow lyrics. Definitely a Classic Country style. I could hear an artist like Kenny Rogers doing this. While not perfect it has excellent potential.

    - Bob Birthisel
Lyrics

Verse 1
I thought that everything between us was OK, I had no doubt
But all the time you knew the things I've done, you caught me out
and I was wrong

Chorus 1
Now I would give you all the stars in exchange for all the bars where I've been drinking
I'd round up all the hills, swap them for the pills that I've been taking
I'd switch off the northern lights in place of all those lonely nights stretched out before me
How I regret my reckless life and wish that you were still my wife the way you used to be.

Verse 2
I played loose and free from the one so dear to me now I am lonely
It doesn't help me out to try and think about all the "if only's"
Cos I was wrong

Bridge
What reckless things our bodies do, when we know it in our heart
One night of passion in a motel room, can tear our lives apart apart

Chorus 2
Now I would give you all the stars in exchange for all the bars where I've been drinking
I wanna round up all the hills, swap them for the pills that I've been taking
I'd switch off the northern lights for all those lonely nights stretched out before me
How I regret my reckless life and wish that you were still my wife the way you used to be.

Outro
How I regret my reckless life and wish that you were still my wife the way you used to be.

Ooh Ooh, these reckless lives
