Can't Live it Down

As has become a tradition for me on Sunday morning, after church and a good workout, I put in Dierks Bentley's "Live from the Filmore" concert and rock out while making an omelet and sipping my second Venti Drip, Black.
Each time I listen through the entire concert, a different song and its lyrics will jump out at me. I have made the claim before that Dierks entire album may have been written after reading my journal as it just may capture my perspective on life better than most. This morning's song is called "Can't Live it Down." Enjoy.


I've been called a rambler
'Cause I keep my eyes on that horizon line
And I've been called a gambler
'Cause I always wanna let my winnings ride
I've been broke more times than I can count
I've been stuck for days in a lonely town
When my luck ran south

Hey I might be makin' me a reputation
Of goin' my own way and
I can't live it down
Got the throttle wide open gonna live it up knowin'
In this life you only
Get one go around
And I can't live it down

There's times I've wasted money
'Cause I know that I can always make more cash
But wasted time is something man
When it's gone you can't get it back
So I'll go on burnin' up both ends
'Cause I don't want a whole lot of might've-beens
Now that would be a sin

Gonna live for place I ain't been
Make a lot of good remember-whens
Right up to the end

I can't live it down
