Where The Wild Girl Runs

from by Men With Day Jobs

lyrics

I am a man of comfort, within my comfort zone
- so safe and so contented, my castle is my home

With my book and tea and slippers, and my old mates
on the phone
And everything in place where it should be,
and everything in place where it should be
But when the wild girl runs with the north wind in her hair,
to the wires and drums, she’ll be off to god knows where 

And when the moment comes, she knows I will be there –
I must go where the wild girl runs
I am a man of leisure, there’s so much not to do -
I love my simple pleasures, some prog-rock and a brew

My idea of adventure is a brand new Doctor Who (whee-oo!)
I love to feel the grass grow under me,
I love to feel the grass grow under me
But when the wild girl runs with the fire in her eyes,
from the blazing suns of a thousand distant skies

When she turns her head, she will see with no surprise,
I have come where the wild girl runs
From a hundred misty mountains to a thousand stormy seas,
I will hug my crossword to my chest and go - say the word, I’ll go!
I will follow her wherever the dice of fate are thrown -
wherever she may wander, she will never be alone

And if the wild girl needs to have adventures on her own,
she knows I will be here when she comes home,
I will wait with bated slippers till she’s home
And when the wild girl runs with tomorrow in her hands,
to the spires and slums of those far-flung foreign lands

In the flesh or spirit, I know she understands -
I am there where the wild girl runs… where she runs!
