It was early summer I was around 13 and shy.
The day she came up to me and said "Hi".
I spent all that summer holding her hand
It sure felt good for the while being her man
She had diamonds in hers eyes that were alluring
My dusty broken heart I felt she was curing
Her name was Jasmine sweet like the flower
It was the first encounter of my heart going sour
Her gentle smile could warm the coldest of cold
I was gonna ask her out to the disco if truth be told
Love had no boundaries until I heard her say
That her moms found a new job she's moving away
My heart died a little that day after hearing that
It's been blue before but this time it was black
She was first of many girls to say goodbye to me
Was the beginning of how this crazy heart came to be
In a quiet little cafe on the outskirts of town
Three words she's waited to hear but I let her down
The lump in my throat grew bigger by the minute!
As I stumbled with the words of how to say it!
Like a poker hand she put it out all on the line
With an innocent voice she'd like to marry me sometime
Raise a little family and build a home from the ground
I was young and naive I never planned to stick around
Tears rolled down her face with the words I couldn't say!
I'll never forget that day she walked away!
Her heart left to roam prairies of a lonely sort
Mine refusing to be tamed, cared for or caught
It's who I've become now, who I'll always be
There's no heart in the near future I can see
That could ever pen me down except I guess one
It was the only time I never thought to run
There was this one fair maiden many moons ago
Even now as I recall my love for her still grows
Her sweet delicate smile and hazel eyes
This outlaw, this crazy heart she mesmerised
It was forbidden love of the highest degree
I was lost in the atoms of time you see
My heart holds treasures that won't be sold
Her memory I couldn't sell not for all me gold
Somehow she made me feel like the king of kings
She somehow gave the horse I ride a pair of wings
It was almost like she knew me from another time
I was drunk on her beauty as if she were wine
The day she left me on that big steel horse
She was making a fresh start set for a new course
My crazy heart broke that day believe it or not
In seeped the darkness left here alone to rot
I was thrown to the wild and left to wander alone
In the misery of it all I somehow found a home
Time stole her from me and moved her far away
If she was left alone she'd be here with me today
That's why I will never run with the herd
Afraid of what I'll feel from that four letter word
She will be the one I love and wanted for all time
But the gods just wouldn't let her be mine
My crazy heart won't stop galloping away
My gypsies blood just won't let me stay
Just one time I wish for it to find a home
Pen it , tame it, love it , so it never roams
I wait for someone to brand their mark
On this wild and reckless crazy old heart
Lasso this wandering heart that no one has before
Bring it into the stables and calm its war
I guess that's the romantic side of me that remains
But deep inside I've lost the grip of me reins
It's loco and reckless it's untamed even from time
let it rest, let it be for it's truly the last of it's kind
Like a untamed coyote it will always hear the call
Breaking free of its restraints to escape its stall
It loves the dirt under its hooves and wind in its mane
It's hypocrisy knows no bounds it's a victim of its own fame.
I dream for just one day.
Someone would make it stay.
Running from love like a bullet leaves a gun.
Like a fugitive it's always on the run.
It wears no mans chains
Like a prairie unchanged
Caged only by freedom
Letting no one mislead him
