Track Name: Something Wild
Once bitten she's not twice as shy
Got to close the windows to keep in her sighs
Her fingers running through tigers' fur
She loves to mix danger with her pleasure

She doesn't want to be tied down
She just loves to be chained and bound
A fondness for handcuffs
When we make love
But when she asks me to put her on her leash
I still know she'll always be out of reach

And she's oh so guilty free
(Something Wild)
Unfaithful with impunity
(Something Wild)
I can't believe she's such a good liar
So I just keep walking blindfold on this high wire

Tempting me into doing wrong
Will I be sorry when she's gone?
My head's in turmoil
My blood's on the boil
The touch of her skin, throw caution to the wind
Ooooh let the sin begin

Such good times will be hard to forget
Or will I just be left with regret?
I turn a blind eye to all her debts
Will she just drain me 'till I've nothing left?

If only I could trust her for a while
(Something Wild)
But give her an inch and she'll just take a mile
(Something Wild)
My common sense lost in exile
My mixed emotions hard to reconcile

No need to tell me
I'm playing with fire
She's so hot
Full of desire
She knows no shame
And thinks it's all a game
It should have been a clue
When she said her name was Lulu

There's a darkness in her smile
(Something Wild)
"Handle with care", she's so volatile
(Something Wild)
Sex just wrecked the thermopile
She's something wild

She's not the kind of girl you'll walk up the aisle
(Something Wild)
I'm just another heart in her stockpile
(Something Wild)
I try to resist but it's so futile
She's something wild

And now she's getting me oh so riled
(Something Wild)
With her tears of expensive crocodile
(Something Wild)
All good in me is just being defiled
She's something wild
Track Name: Get Up!
It's no wonder you're alone
When all you do is sit at home
Nursing all these dreams
And wondering what they mean

You're a master of disguise
And you tell little white lies
You're a moderate success
But really your life is a mess
If you ain't going to show who you are
You ain't ever going to get very far

Get Up! Get Up!
And sing your song
Get Up! Get Up!
You've been in the audience for far too long

Fallen between two lives
In the gulf between inside and outside
You've got to make the two coincide
Or you're only ever going to get by
If you ain't going to show who you are
You ain't ever going to get very far

Get Up! Get Up!
And sing your song
Get Up! Get Up!
You've been in the audience for far too long

Are you just going to waste you're time?
What you going to say when you meet the deadline?
You know a lack of confidence isn't a defence
You know a lack of confidence isn't any, any defence

If you're scared of ridicule
Then you'll always going to think you're a fool
But if you don't have a go
Then you'll never ever going to know
If you ain't going to show who you are
You ain't ever going to get very far

Get Up! Get Up!
And sing your song
Get Up! Get Up!
You've been hiding too long
Get Up! Get Up!
And sing your song
Get Up! Get Up!
You've been in the audience too long

Get Up!
Get Up!
Get Up!
Get Up!

Get Up! Get Up!
And sing your song
Get Up! Get Up!
You've been hiding too long
Get Up! Get Up! Get Up!
Get Up! Get Up! Get Up!
Get Up! Get Up! Get Up!
Get Up! Get Up! Get Up!

Track Name: Can't Let Go
Well I've been treading water for so long
(Just drifting, drifting along)
I never wanted to play it safe
(But maybe I just didn't have enough faith)
It was never a means to escape
(I know I've made lots of mistakes)
But where have all the opportunities gone?
(I don't know where it all went wrong)
Wondering what it's all for
I never got a foot in that door
I'm clutching at straws
Can't let go

I'm going home alone again tonight
(How long is it going to take for me to see the light?)
Whatever happened to a wife?
(I never really had any family life)
I know I've had my romances
(I guess I've had my chances)
But it was never commitment from which I was afraid
(It just never felt right to go all the way)
Maybe it's all in my head
But how many people really care if I'm alive or dead?
I'm hanging on by a thread
Can't let go

I don't ever want to be a pretender
(I don't ever want to return my life to sender)
I don't ever want to give up on my dreams
(Though I no longer know what they mean)
I know I'm running out of time
(But still I ignore all the signs)
Inspite of the evidence
(Inspite of all good sense)
If I look through that telescope
I know I've still got a little hope
I've got just enough rope
Can't let go
