John hiatt

Sometims I don't even move a muscle
Baby while you lie awake all night
I think I've got 9 lives in these corpuscles
Girl, you know sometimes I don't think right

I hear voices in the hall
I wake up and it's nothing at all
A hungry wolf-an angry child
Or something wild
Something wild
Something wild
Something wild

It's not as if we could think that things
Was one way
Or they would all just be that way right now
When I was a kid I thought that some day
I could tame this lion heart some
Way, some how

Now I'm hungry for the love
That doesn't know what it's thinking of
Searching for the meek and mild
Like something wild
Something wild
Something wild
Something wild

There's a hole where the wind blows through
And some curtains too
But I can't hide a thing from you-
You know where I'm comin' from
Well I tried gettin' there under my own steam
But my very last chance was shot
Now you're ridin' me down like a submarine
I can feel you in my veins, runnin' hot
I went out and stole a new pair of shoes
Some pocket money and a place to go
Now we gotta get up and scream at the
Top of our lungs like it was gonna die
If we didn't make it so
I hear voices in the hall
I wake up and it's nothing at all
A hungry wolf-an angry child
Something wild
