Music and Words by Duncan Browne

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A prima donna, slipped into her leather
But she was restless
She knew it in her heart of hearts
She said "Tonight youd better pull yourself together,
Because tonight Im gonna pull myself apart!"
Out on the streets
Everyone is searchin for a thrill
But shes the only one thats out there
really dressed to kill
And she said "Listen to me, its not a tragedy,
This time Im gettin thorough and now theres
something you can do for me!
And oh, oh, take me to the Wild Places
And let me show you what the night is for
Cos I dont wanna dream
I wanna set the wheels in motion
I dont wanna see your eyes across a dancin floor"
TV angel with her eyes full of smoke
Gazin at the hero, hes so mucho macho
He shrugs, he says "This must be some kind on joke."
As she pulls on his cigarette and loves him to distraction.
But she cries, "I dont wanna feel like a machine
Im not the only one who wants to feel the in-between
Thats why Im deep into this state of fascination
Thats why Ive lost the art of conversation.
And oh, oh, take me to the Wild Places
If you wanna see whats really in my soul
But youd better keep your eye on where my pretty face is
Cos in the heat of the moment I just lose control
In the heat of the moment, I just lose control!"
Eyes out of focus, the sharpening of blades
The sad tension, reek of patchouli
Even the jokers are dealin in spades
Its one dimension, its all so pass
Just then a voice said,
"Honey, its too late to change your mind"
Her face tightened
I could see shed found a new design
and she said, "Listen to me, its just a fantasy
This time Im comin through
and now theres something you can do for me...
Theres something you can do for me!
And oh, oh, take me to the Wild Places
And let me show you what the night is for
I dont wanna dream, I wanna set the wheels in motion
Cos in the heat of the moment I just lose control
In the heat of the moment I just lose control."
