    Backstory:
    Jan had a cool melody he brought to the co-write. It instantly sounded like it had a bit of attitude. The first line came to me pretty much right away, "We were hell bent on raising hell". I can't remember who came up with the hook but that song took about 5 rewrites and 3 years to come out the way we thought it should.

    Lyrics:
                                                      
    Don’t Last Long John Cirillo (ASCAP)/Jan Essenburg (ASCAP) We were hell bent on raising hell That summer we came alive With fake IDs and time to kill Ride, rebels, ride We’re mustang crazy in a one-horse town Swore we’d live forever, never slow down Always racing, racing against the sun Chorus: Can’t steal from time But we damn sure try Full tilt boogie Till the day we die Gonna live, gonna love, Gonna grab it all before it’s gone Cuz, brother it don’t last long I know there will come a day Somewhere down the line When these wild oats get blown away So ride, cowboys, ride Gonna leave this life with no regrets Double down on all my bets Keep racing, racing against the sun Repeat Chorus Bridge: We can bitch and moan, we can scream and cry But that river’s gonna run, till it all runs dry Might as well jump in, have a crazy wild ride Life ain’t nothing if it ain’t fun © 2018 john.cirillo@gmail.com/831.359.0161
