When my age reached 17 or 18, don’t remember the exact time, I heard this song via TV music video channel; then i just love it. It’ a old song. Also, I know her, via this song too……
This year, I knew something just happen on her, and …..she had her own reasons…..what is left, is kust this song, keep playing inside my confusing mind.
Ricky is 18 his life forever, however we all get older……
It seems that my mind is still struggling, still confusing, I never get rid og my 18.
Perhaps, one day, I will move on the next stage………….
when all those problems is faded……..
Ricky was a young boy, he had a heart of stone.
lived 9 to 5 and worked his fingers to the bone.
just barely out of school, came from the edge of town.
fought like a switchblade so no one could take him down.
he had no money, oooh no good at home.
he walked the streets a soldier and he fought the world alone
and now it’s
18 and life you got it
18 and life you know
your crime is time and
it’s 18 and life to go…………..
Tequila in his heartbeat, his veins burned gasoline.
it kept his motor running but it never kept him clean.
they say he loved adventure, "Ricky’s the wild one."
he married trouble and had a courtship with a gun.
bang bang shoot ’em up, the party never ends.
you can’t think of dying when the bottle’s your best friend
and now it’s
"accidents will happen" we all heard ricky say
he fired his six-shot to the wind that child blew a child away………..
[chorus] -by Skid Row <18 and life>
