[Em]Sometimes I donā??[D]t even move [Em]a muscle[D]
[Em]Baby when you [D]lie awake at [Em]night[D]
[Em]I think Iā??ve got nin[D]e lives in these c[Em]orpuscle[D]s
[Em]Cause girl, you know some[D]times I donā??t think[Em] right[D]
[A]I hear voices in the h[G]all
I wake up and itā??s nothing at[A] all
A hungry wolf, or an agry c[G]hild
Or something [Em]wild[D]
Something [Em]wild[D]
Something [Em]wild - tell me [D]love is
Something [Em]wild - tell me [D]love is
Itā??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 Iā??m hungry for the love
That doesnā??t know what itā??s dreaminā?? of
Raging for the meek and mild
Like something wild
Something wild
Something wild - tell me love is
Something [Em]wild - tell me [D]love is[A]
[A]Thereā??s a hole where the wind blow[G]s through
And some curtains [A]hung
But I canā??t hid a thing fro[G]m you
You [B]know where I come from
(Solo 4 bars)
Final Verse: (Lead only, no Rhythm)
Well I tried getting there under my own steam
ā??til my very last chance was shot
Now youā??re under my skin like a submarine
I can feel you in my veins running hot
Now if itā??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 didnā??t make it so
I hear voices in the hall
I wake up and itā??s nothing at all
An angry wolf, or a hungry child
Or something wild
Something wild
Something wild - tell me love is
Something wild - tell me love is
Something [Em]wild[D]
Something [Em]wild[D]
Something [Em]wild[D]
