Wild Love lyrics

1. IN STEREO

He said I’ll see you when you come alive again.
He says all I need is talking to a friend.
You can see me if you come on over here.
You think staying home is the first sign of fear.

I can’t give you all that you need.
Because all your needs are eating up the feed
I can hear you all the way across our town
You say all I need is to get on down, get down

I don’t live in stereo

I’ll see you when the photos are at the store
You say my horizons never right the shore
I can give you only just your piece
But that peace is not the high one that you seek

I don’t live in stereo
I’m warm enough in mono

He said “I’ll see you when you come alive again.”
He says all I need is talking to a friend.

2. RESERVOIR TOWN

this is how it’s gotta be
for me
to forget you

this is what i’ve gotta give
myself
just time

there is where i’ve gotta go
to be
where i need to

this is all that i can give
to you:
no more

here it goes, somewhere down
down below the water line
cuz i live in a reservoir town
flooded over

you can fight if you want
not me
i won’t lie to you

this is where i’m gonna be
by myself
just in time

3. WAVES

In breaks in time
I find a place
Where I can be outside inside

A car in the woods
A window by a tree
Just in there, seeing time

And from my eyes
The speeches go
The “I could be you, or me”

I equalize
and the highest goes
Just all low, all low

the waves
the lines across the water
they come and go
and I see them go

You hear what you hear
is it a kind of place
Where you could be forever?

No, no one has
that kind of quiet
But I am going to try

4. SIKH MAN RUNNING

there’s a sikh man running in the middle of the road
here he comes now, yeah
i had seen you running from all you’d known
there you go now, yeah

This has happened before
And he’s running again

There’s a deep man digging through the little that he knows
It has to be here, yeah
I have heard you telling the truth on the phone
(but) that was then now, yeah

This has happened before
And he’s running again

There’s a slick man digging through the goodwill for clothes
What you got man, yeah
I had seen him filling up all of the holes
In the beat now, yeah

This has happened before
And he’s running again

5. THE STREETS AT NIGHT

you’ve got a kind of wild
and i’ve had some of it before

this is the way
just keep together
we’re taking that street
all the way down

you’ve got places you know
until now, i knew you

this is the night
all of us together
we may be gone
til the light comes

and i can see the truth
the streets at night catch up with you
and you find more of it, seeking every night

there was a time, a time of wild
when i had, a beat on you

that was the way
all of us together
now it’s gone
i’m better off now

and i can see the truth
the streets at night catch up with you
and you find more of it, seeking every night

i used to follow you
and do things i never thought i’d do
and hold out a bloody fist full of the night

6. NIGHT MARKETS IN TAIWAN

is it not right to feel lonely?
I had a dream that I was there

for all of the ways that i could feel alive,
in Taiwan, a holy place

you can describe to people always
you can get high as jaeger minds

and then the light and music all raise
into your eyes, a holy sound

come with me to the markets at night
you are brighter than the neon

Could it be alright to take it slowly, babe
I had a dream that I was there

for all the ways I keep my head straight
in Taiwan, no need to do so now

come with me to the markets at night
you are brighter than the neon

I’d go with you to the back of the night
to get brighter than the daylight
when it comes

7. DEEP AND HEAVY

The sleep is coming down on my head tonight
but I’m not there just now
I don’t wanna take that bow

The hours are bleeding out on my bed tonight
and I can’t heal that wound
and I can’t stay in tune

you’re lookin’ at me
with eyes so deep and heavy

The darkness in our skies, is too light tonight
and I can’t reach that sun
and reaching ain’t that fun

you’re lookin’ at me
with eyes so deep
you’re lookin’ at me
with eyes so deep and heavy

The sweetness piling on, from your face tonight
and this could be your song
and I don’t think I’m wrong

you’re lookin’ at me
with eyes so deep and heavy
you’re lookin’ at me
with eyes so deep
you’re lookin’ at me
with eyes so deep and heavy

8. STRANGERS

Who’s got you? I’ve got me
In lonely waves, dive or die

The way we sang was all for you
and I can’t say go back, come back

How do we get the love of strangers?

They’ve all got you, no longer me
And either way, you ride and ride

How do we get the love of strangers?

How do we get the love of strangers?
Can we know the hearts of friends?

9. WILD GEESE

all my wild geese fluttering down
feet on the wall that’s behind me now
wings white large unfolded
inside the wall they repeat what i said

nobody asked you floated
from the rotten half of what you wanted to be
somebody’s doors were bolted
nobody’s god had you wanted to be

i think this calls for Everything
i think i’ll call you The Wildest Bird

all that starlight battering down
one foot in the darkness behind me now
wings beat loud unamplified
inside the fort where the cold ones died

nobody asked, you folded
to the rotten half of the crowed that you see
somebody’s eyes were bolted
there’s not one good heart in that crowd that you see

i think this calls for Everything
i’d like to call you The Wildest Bird

I think that you should call up everyone you know
And you tell’em to call me The Wildest Bird

10. COME WITH ME

you can come here all your own
with the things there in your bones
when it’s quiet now that’s the way
no need wait for anyone

will you come with me now?
i’ll be with you now
i can see inside

i can see you out of doors
all the things you need are yours
when it’s quiet now i can say
no need way there anymore

will you come with me now?
i’ll be with you now
i can see inside
i can see our field from here
you see colors and atmosphere
when it’s quiet now i can say
we have found our everyone

will you come with me now?
i’ll be with you now
i can see inside

11. THE EMPTY HAND

I was deep in the art of the empty hand
The wind turbines would bow
a dark place with a heart like a hurricane
will blow

I’d leave home in the dark, and regret the nights
The yellow lines a haze
Then you came like the sun in the morning hour
will glow

And late at night, I’d seek the sound
of coming home to seed the ground

We get deep in the heart of it sometimes
and the wind turbines get slow
But I come home to a heart like a waterway
will flow

And late at night, I’d seek the sound
of coming home to seed the ground

I was deep in the art of the empty hand
and the wind turbines did bow
This is home and the sun in the morning hour
Will glow

And late at night, I’d seek the sound
of coming home to seed the ground

12. WILD LOVE

It was all about a way back
to where I begin
The tree waves and I wave to get moving again

There was the day when they cut it down
bleeding out from the in
These are my people, I said, to no one again

Wild Love, Wild Love

It opened up my mind that day
when I called her to quit
It has a way of getting me back to it

and I arrived on a cold day
seventy-nine for the win
I don’t say go back, but I do say begin

Wild Love, Wild Love

There’s a shadow coming on like waves
(so) I keep all my time
The tree waves and I wave to keep on keeping time

Wild Love, Wild Love
