Lyrics:
I'm reckless and feelin' no
       pain
       You know I've got no need to control
       Livin' with the danger I'm always on the edge now
       With million dollars visions that I hold
       Livin' like this never ever tore my life apart
       I know how to maintain and
       You know I know my part
     
       On a holiday
       A permanent vacation
       I'm livin' on a cigarette with wine
       I'm never alone 'cause I got myself
       Yes, I imitate myself all of the time
       Livin' like this never ever tore my life apart
       I know how to maintain 'cause it's comin' form my heart
       I lead a reckless life
       And I don't need your advice
       I lead a reckless life
       And you know it's my only vice
     
       Reckless life
       I lead a reckless life
       I lead a reckless life
       And you know it's my only -
       Reckless life
       I lead a reckless life
       I lead a reckless life
       And you know it's my only vice


Information:
This song was an old Hollywood Rose song, it was actually on a Hollywood Rose demo tape together with 'Nice Boys' and 'Shadow of Your Love' that was handed to Steven by Izzy before GN'R was founded ["My Appetite for Destruction", 2010].

Quotes:
This song is for anybody getting drunk. This song is "Reckless" [Madame Wong's West, July 20, 1984].

On thing always bugged me about the very beginning of the record. The count-in to 'Reckless Life' is my very first hit on the drums. It's the high hat and cowbell. When I hit the cowbell the stick slid off. So my first recorded note is muted, it's not all there ["My Appetite for Destruction", 2010].

'Reckless Life' performed live at The Roxy, January 18, 1986:
