Sometimes I don't even move a muscle
Baby when you lie awake all night
I think I've got nine lives in these corpuscles
Think girl, you know sometimes I don't think right

I hear voices in the hall
I wake up and its nothin' at all
A hungry wolf or an angry child

Or somethin' wild, somethin' wild
Somethin' wild
(Tell me love is)
Somethin' wild
(Tell me love is)

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

Now I'm hungry for the love
That doesn't know what it's dreamin' of
Ragin' for the meek and mild

Like somethin' wild, somethin' wild
Somethin' wild
(Tell me love is)
Somethin' wild
(Tell me love is)

There's a hole where the wind blows through
And some curtains hung
But I can't hide a thing from you
You know where I come from

Well I tried gettin' 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 runnin' hot

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

I hear voices in the hall
I wake up and it's nothin' at all
An angry wolf or a hungry child

Or somethin' wild, somethin' wild
Somethin' wild
(Tell me love is)
Somethin' wild
(Tell me love is)

Somethin' wild
Somethin' wild
Somethin' wild
