Etheridge, Melissa - Wild And Lonely Lyrics

Dangerous, I must confess
I hold my tongue, I hold my breath
Another night, a long dark road
With miles and miles and miles to go
A raging hollow emptiness I feel
The night is cold and I'm alone
Come and take the wheel

Because you, you've seen me in my cage
Cursed, I've been betrayed
All the night I've lost my way

And I feel so wild and lonely
Don't you want to save me?
Don't you want to stone me?
Hey yeah, oh

If I could, and I know I should
I'd be over this, I'd be understood
A howling moon and an ancient song
I've got miles and miles to go till dawn
An angry craving seeps into my skin
It's all too much, I need to touch you once again

Because you, you've seen me in my cage
Cursed, I've been betrayed
All the night I've lost my way

And I feel so wild and lonely
Don't you want to save me?
Don't you want to stone me?
Don't you want to save me?

I feel so wild and lonely
Don't you want to steal me?
Don't you want to own me?
(Come on)
Don't you want to drive me?
Drive me on a highway?
Don't you want to save me?
Don't you want to stone me?

Wild and lonely, oh
Wild and lonely, come on, come on
Save me
Don't you want to stone me?
Wild and lonely, oh

    I so enjoyed seeing you in Arlington, TX last month.
    I was expecting a "Good" concert. Let me add, I've loved your music but had never seen you LIVE!
    Well, like I said, I expected a "Good" concert...
    What you delivered was Part of Yourself! It was Dynamic, Powerful and totally Heart Felt.
    I was Blown Away.
    Thank you Soooo Much.
    It was wonderful getting to know more about you and your music.
    It was an Honor!
    I would have enjoyed meeting you.
    After listening to you talk and sing, you seem like the kind of person I'd love to have as a Friend.
    Blessings and Love to you and again, Thank You!

  50. Cory Tate

    Wow Miss Etheridge you shine with talent!!! Talent in the way you sing but also talent in the way you sing to our soul. To me this song speaks words that are at this point of my life Impossible for me to speak. This is the first time I have had the pleasure of hearing this song. I personally could Not have picked a more perfect time in my Life to hear this song. It has made me feel a little bit less lonely at a breaking point of my life. My Life needs a serious change and self understanding. Cause Honestly that is exactly how i feel. Completely alone Hated by most and Misunderstood by All. I am Wild and completely alone in this world and i have never felt so lonely. Thank you for making me smile and not feel so lonely.

    Musikus 70

    Best song of the album. Reminds me of the earlier albums

    Pim Patinkin

    Okay so, you wrote Bring Me Some Water about my Mother turning you down for a date. You made some money off that song even though it's NOT so good of a song, still you turned around and told someone that my Mother couldn't come to your party at your house when you rented on Melrose, right in front of everyone! You were showing off and used her again to gain popularity. You're a BAD person and SELFISH MEAN SELF CENTERED BYCH. You owe her as far as I'm concerned and I know this is you. Mary Ellen told us how you asked my Mother out and how she turned you down because she didn't wanna cheat with you when you b/c you had a gf named Cathy. We don't care how long ago it was.You''re gonna need some FN WATER! PAY UP CHEATER!

  89. Crimson Fire

    Awesome!!!!! Just like the older albums.


    Great song! You're beautiful, Melissa! I love you!
