A Wild Heart Looking For Home

Original and similar lyrics
(Denver/Henry) Life in the city gets all closed in when you stand in a crowd all alone. Wishing that someone would call out your number, hoping that someone might phone. Nights in the city can drive you crazy, there so very much going on. Try to get quiet, you'll miss out on something like someone who's looking for, someone who's looking... There, I almost got caught again, lost in the night all alone. With nowhere to hide, crying inside, a wild heart looking for home. Sleeping without you is always cold, the nights are so dark and so long. Dreaming of touching your face in the moonlight, filling the silence with song. Living without you, the days are endless, the clock winding steadily down. Imagining footsteps, your hand at the gatepost, the wind shuts the open door, the wind shuts the open... There, I almost got caught again, lost in the night all alone. With nowhere to hide, crying inside, a wild heart looking for home. The songbird, she trembles all day long. She sings as if her poor heart must break. Watching the freedom that flies past her window, dreaming won't fit in a cage. Fly away songbird, the wind still loves you, your prison is forsaken at last. Follow your dreaming, you're bound up to heaven, you're reaching for something more, reaching for something... There, I almost got caught again, lost in the night all alone. With nowhere to hide, crying inside, a wild heart looking for there, I thought of your face again, a vision to have and to hold. My spirit still sings, I'm flying again, a wild heart looking for home. A wild heart looking for home.

Don't Chain My Heart

TOTO
Tired and frozen I'm under your spell I thought I knew you But now I know you well I wake up beside you Move across your killing floor I need my freedom and I see an open door The room is getting smaller and the walls are closin' in No one's leavin' and nobody's gettin' in I try to run I try to hide I try to tell you what I'm feelin' inside Should I stay Should I go You know I wanna touch you But there's nothing left to hold Don't chain my heart Don't chain my soul Don't chain my heart 'Cause you got to let it go Looks like trouble The signs are everywhere I bend a little but you take more than your share Crimes of passion Crimes of mortal men It's a deadly attraction and I won't be fooled again, baby The storm is coming The winds begin to rise Please release me from this house of compromise All day All night Your love is like an outlaw waiting till the time is right Nobody's wrong No one's to blame Maybe it's just too hot because we're standin' in the flame Don't chain my heart Don't chain my soul Don't chain my heart 'Cause you got to let it go I'm a victim of your pain and jealousy I feel like a prisoner and you hold the lock and key We lost our vision We lost our paradise But there's still a part of me I refuse to sacrifice [Instrumental break] I try to run I try to hide I need to tell you what I'm feelin' inside, baby Should I stay Should I go You know I wanna touch you But there's nothing left to hold Don't chain my heart Don't chain my soul Don't chain my heart 'Cause you got to let it go [repeats 2x]

Chaka Demus

JAMIE T "Kings & Queens"
A lot of people around here lost the white in their eyes. I see the lust inside your heart, so why don't you go and touch the sky? Think with their head, argue with a gut, Draft if you leave the door open it might encourage customers in, Then I wish the barmaid shut, look like shit, down on my luck, Two world wars and one world cup, Screamed by the desperate divided crutch. Used to have an empire then we grew up. Lost everything — who gives a fuck? Money in a jukebox, rocks all night Same shit bands, too much hype, Everyone knows, everyone sees fights, everyone drinks in the corner, right. Everyone knows it's the 'C' blood type, sayin' we match, too much delight. I love her, she loves me too, that's why we get together. A lot of people around here lost the white in their eyes I see the lust inside your heart, I don't wanna touch the sky. He's dizzy for Lizzy, I'm dizzy generally, Scapegoated by a girl befriending me, Not that I care, it's the only use of me, She bounced off walls through doors Pretend to be everything I wanna be and everything less. I stress this guess, the part that we stressed It's heavy, kinda heavy, on your lungs all down your spine, Show up, pleurisy. You're leaving alone but you came together, Who made the sun turn stormy weather? You're leaving alone but you came together, Who made the sun turn to stormy weather? A lot of people around here lost the white in their eyes I see the lust inside your heart, I don't wanna touch the sky. She said tonight Jay, I'm gonna' teach them a ballad, an English man in every coward, I was kinda impressed by the way she dressed, I scoured this land to find a girl empowered, Asked her again why her heart turned sour, One of the ones that the boys devoured, If you're gonna learn a song, you gotta sing along, There's an English man in every coward. I got money in the jukebox, rocks all night Same shit bands, too much hype, Everyone knows, everyone sees fights, everyone drinks in the corner, right. Everyone knows their 'C' blood type, sayin' we match, too much delight. I love her, she loves me too, that's why we get together. A lot of people around here lost the white in their eyes I see the lust inside your heart, I don't wanna touch the sky. A lot of people around here lost the white in their eyes I see the lust inside your heart, I don't wanna touch the sky.

BRIGHT EYES
I spent a week drinking the sunlight of Winnetka, California Where they understand the weight of human hearts You see, sorrow gets too heavy and joy it tends to hold you With the fear that it eventually departs And the truth is I've been dreaming of some tired tranquil place Where the weather won't get trapped inside my bones And if all the years of searching find one sympathetic face Then it's there I'll plant these seeds and make my home I spent a day dreaming of dying in Mesa, Arizona Where all the green of life had turned to ash And I felt I was on fire, with the things I could have told you I just assumed that you eventually would ask And I wouldn't have to bring up my so badly broken heart And all those months I just wanted to sleep And though spring, it did come slowly, I guess it did its part My heart has thawed and continues to beat And I visited my brother on the outskirts of Olympia Where the forest and the water become one And we talked about our childhood like a dream we were convinced of That perfect, peaceful street that we came from And I know he heard me strumming all those sad and simple chords As I sat inside my room so long ago And it hurts that he's still shaking from those secrets that were told By a car closed up too tight and a heart turned cold And I went to San Diego, and the birthplace of the summer And watched the ocean dance under the moon There was a girl I knew there, one more potential lover I guess that something's gotta happen soon Cause I know I can't keep living in this dead or dying dream As I walked along the beach and drank with her I thought about my true love, the one I really need With eyes that burn so bright, they make me pure They make me pure, they make me pure I long to be with you They make me pure, they make me pure I long to be with you

Spanish Is A Loving Tongue

Harris Emmylou "Cimarron"
Spanish is a loving tongue Soft as music, light as spray Was a girl he learned it from Living down Sonora way He don't look much like a lover But he says her love words over Mostly when he's all alone Mi amor mi corazon On the nights that he would ride She would listen for his spurs Throw those big doors open wide Raise them laughing eyes of hers How those hours would get to flying All too soon he'd hear her sighing In her little sorry tone Mi amor mi corazon He ain't seen her since that night He can't cross the line you know They want him for a gamblin' fight Like as not it's better so Yet he's always sort of missed her Since that last sad night he kissed her Lost his heart, left her own Adios mi corazon Lost his heart, left her own Adios mi corazon
