There is wildness. And there is crazy. This song is about the difference.


Through your harlequin's face and your plastic glasses
there shines a peculiar style
So you're the Cadillac of sidewalk desire
but it's the bees that are making me smile
Making love to a flower
runnin' rin tin tin
you got no final hour
for your primal sin
Wild Woman I know

You're far too independent
to be out there on your own
You know I'd like to see you
but you make me feel like a clone
Your love is my horse that is running me over
Unbridled and far far from home
Wild Woman I know

If we go out somewhere
you might stand there staring like the Sphinx
You tell them without talking
that you're thinking that their world stinks
Well the lights go down low
you get me in the car
Ask me how far
It's just a bit too far
Wild Woman I know

You know I'd like to see you
if you invited me over some time
But the rules are always yours
and it's your house never mine
Wild Woman I know
that you're going for control
And I know for sure
that you're not going to "get" me "get" me "get" me
Wild woman I know

The strength of the land and the water that connects us all depends on how well we are able to "sing in this land"- and how well we can respect the whole. ... more
