JJ Grey & Mofro – Tame A Wild One Lyrics

SHARE

There’s never been a man to keep her underhand
Or to hold her down
‘Cause she’s as wild as a raging sea
And just as beautiful, too

Oh, what was it in her eyes that scared him so?
How come he felt so weak but tried to look so strong?

He tried to tame, tame a wild one
He tried to make a woman do right
Till she wanna do wrong

Oh, she, she was content
She loved to live each day as if another may never come
Ah, but he, he did his best to hold her down
He built a cage, he built a prison for the thing he loved most

He tried to tame, tame a wild one
He tried to make a woman do right
Till she wanna do wrong
He tried to tame, tame a wild one
Ah, love is as free as it gets but it ain’t ever cheap

All the beauty we see but you can’t make it stay
Every spirit has wings, won’t you fly away?
Fly away, fly away, fly away

He woke to an empty house
Only the shell, only the echo inside
He may never understand just why she left
But words can’t build what’s real
Or pull the life from a breath

He tried to tame, tame a wild one
He tried to make a woman do right
Till she wanna do wrong
He tried to tame, tame a wild one
Ah, love is as free as it gets but it ain’t ever cheap

He tried to tame, tame, tame a wild one
He tried to make a woman do right
Till she wanna do wrong
Tame, tame, tame, tame a wild one
Ah, love is as free as it gets but it ain’t ever cheap
