Tame A Wild One
Lyrics
Music & Lyrics by JJ Grey

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 look so strong

He tried to tame - tame a wild one
He tried to make a woman do right till she wants to do wrong

She, she was content
She loved to live each day as if another may never come

Ah but he
He did is best to hold her down
He built a cage 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 wants to 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, 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 wants to do wrong
He tried to tame - tame a wild one
Ah love is as free as it gets but it ain't ever cheap
