Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Sometimes I don't even move a muscle
Baby when you lie awake at night
I think I've got nine lives in these corpuscles
Girl, you know sometimes I don't think right
Verse 2
I hear voices in the hall
I wake up and its nothing at all
A hungry wolf, or an angry child
Verse 3
Or something wild
Something wild
Something wild - tell me love is
Something wild - tell me love is
Verse 4
It's not as if we could think that things were one way
And they would all just be that way right now
When I was a kid I thought that someday
I could tame this lion heart, some way, somehow
Verse 5
Now I'm hungry for the love
That doesn't know what it's dreamin' of
Raging for the meek and mild
Verse 6
Like something wild
Something wild
Something wild - tell me love is
Something wild - tell me love is
Verse 7
There's a hole where the wind blows through
And some curtains hung
But I can't hid a thing from you
You know where I come from
Verse 8
Well I tried getting there under my own steam
'Til my very last chance was shot
Now you're under my skin like a submarine
I can feel you in my veins running hot
Verse 9
Now if it's more than a new pair of jeans, a new car, some pocket money
And a place to go
Then we better get up and scream at the top of our lungs like it
Was gonna die if we didn't make it so
Verse 10
I hear voices in the hall
I wake up and it's nothing at all
An angry wolf, or a hungry child
Verse 11
Or something wild
Something wild
Something wild - tell me love is
Something wild - tell me love is
Something wild
Something wild
Something wild
