these arms could hold you tight if I'd just climb the stairs goodnight even though I'm here at home I still seem to roam I've always been wild at heart the kids, the house, the car give shape to where you are but there's a look there on your face saying, "gotta get out of this place" you've always been wild at heart gone are the days wondering what life is for, you know, we got much more than we came here for a father and mother a sister and brother the gang's all here and when we're old and greyed and sunlight fades away if there's a look there in your eye I'll meet it with mine we've always been wild we'll always be wild we'll always be wild at heart

I was waltzing with my darling to the Tennessee Waltz, when an old friend, I happened to see Introduced him to my loved one and while they were dancing my friend stole my loved one from me I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz now I know just how much I have lost how I lost my little darling while they were playing the beautiful Tennessee Waltz

you, you, you, you were my life, life ,life life, and I thought, thought, thought, thought you were mine mine, but the truth, truth, truth was you were hers, hers, hers, hers all the time when you hit, hit me right in the face, face, face I said, "you can't, can't hurt me" but I lied I was just try, try, tryin' trying to make you love me more instead Holy cow, kid hold me again Holy cow, kid hold me again when I saw, saw, saw just how much worse, worse, worse she treated you, I just, had to laugh I thought that I, I, I was the one who had it bad! I love you, Mina and I'm sorry we're only human beings with feelings after all

rusted brandy in a diamond glass and everything is made from dreams time is made from honey slow and sweet only the fools know what it means temptation temptation temptaion , I can't resist I know that she is made of smoke and I have lost my way she knows that I am broke so that I must play temptation temptation temptation I cant resist Dutch pink and italian blue she is there waiting for you my will has disappeared now my confusion's oh, so clear temptation temptation temptation I can't resist

Ice Floes 05:04
the icefloes are breaking out on to the living room rug is there anybody under there, who's smothered there? I'm wading knee deep to the kitchen with the gushes of flood coming over me the glacier's a tower that's melting, and the runoff is powering the dim blue light casting a glow so gloomingly slow I'm floating out into the front yard with balloons strung on nooses as bodyguards hang 'em high bye bye hang 'em high you're all gonna die hang 'em high bye bye hang 'em high you're all gonna die the levers for setting the level of drainage are gone the gears have sprung it's clear we're soaked to the ears our words bubbling out now to no one a blinding white tidal wave eclipse of the sun the angels are peeing a giddy warm greeting on everyone that stings in my eyes and my nose as conciousness slows I'm getting my halo the hard way 'cause Poseidon's persuading me to stay in the sea Hang 'em high bye bye hang 'em high we're all gonna die hang 'em high bye bye hang 'em high we're all gonna die by'n' by I'm gonna bite somebody for sure by'n' by I'm gonna infect your skin with a cool, clear cure na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na

have you sver seen a strip-mine by moonlight? it's a beautiful sight like a giant's escalator to the heavens and that's where pennies come from, my love that's where pennies come from, my sweet one so I'm filling up a jar with that mountain to the stars gonna trade in my car for a rainbow and those diamonds on your ring, they're so pretty when they glimmer you know, they didn't come from Ohio a ten year old boy first held them alone dug out from the silt in Sierra Leone he was shot for stealing an older boy's boots this town wasn't nothin until they found somethin they could pull out from under the soil there's some beautiful oil fields between here and New Braunfels on the way to Grandma's house and you might be mistaken if you thought you were takin' a little piece of land all to yourself 'cause there's someone up above us watching over, 'cause he loves us just making sure nothing gets wasted for the good of you people, and the sake of us nations make sure you only take what you are rationed there's no limit to what can be extruded from the earth the only question is: "How much is it worth?" and that's where pennies come from, my love that's where pennies come from, my sweet one
