Musgraves, Kacey - Love Is A Wild Thing Lyrics




You can't find it sitting on a shelf in a store
If you try to hide it, it's gonna shine even more

Even if you lose it, it will find you
There's no way to stop it, but they'll try to

Running like a river trying to find the ocean
Flowers in the concrete
Climbing over fences, blooming in the shadows
Places that you can't see
Coming through the melody when the night bird sings
Love is a wild thing

Oh, I can feel it, magic in your fingertips
And I can hear it in the words coming off your lips

Even if you lose me, I will find you
There's no way to stop it, so don't try to

Running like a river trying to find the ocean
Flowers in the concrete
Climbing over fences, blooming in the shadows
Places that you can't see
Coming through the melody when the night bird sings
Love is a wild thing

I used to be scared of the wilderness, of the dark
But not anymore, anymore, no

Running like a river trying to find the ocean
Flowers in the concrete
Climbing over fences blooming in the shadows
Places that you can't see
Coming through the melody when the night bird sings
Love is a wild thing
Love is a wild thing
Love is a wild thing, yeah

  41. Elijah Baird

    If this album is COUNTRY music, then I'm a damn astronaut.

    Darin LaGarry

    She is a songwriter. The actual style does not matter.

    Elijah Baird

    @Darin LaGarry So if that's the case, Metallica writes their own songs too. If I played that and labeled it as country it would be acceptable by your theory.

    Darin LaGarry

    @Elijah Baird Labels are constructs. A good song is a good song regardless of the window dressing.

    Elijah Baird

    @Darin LaGarry so we should not lable anything????? So my dog is now my car. My house is now called my shower. And music is now called windows. Because even the word music puts a label on this. We classify everything in our lives to maintain an order and construct. Classification is labeling. And we classify music by genre. Now I know in today's messed up society that people are wanting to remove labels from everything in life. Music, gender, sexuality, however there are still those of us that know that construct, order, and labels, allow us to live an orderly existence. And without labels we truly just live in a land on confusion where anything can be called whatever the person feels like calling it, and if the rest of the world cannot understand what they're referring to or talking about than we are just being insensitive to them. Which by the way, that's another label.

    Darin LaGarry

    @Elijah Baird I think the point is, before you ran off the rails, is that Kacey is a songwriter. Yes, she is influenced by country because that is what she knows. But, she is not constrained by it creatively. If it makes you feel better to judge her music by labeling it, then feel free to do so. I just happen to disagree.

  42. Samantha Jeffrey

    Every song on this album makes me so emotional. It’s been years since I’ve connected wholly to music like this. It sings to my soul.

    Lissybird

    Samantha Jeffrey same!!!

    Love Is A Wild Thing"

    You can't find it sitting on a shelf in a store
    If you try to hide it, it's gonna shine even more

    Even if you lose it, it will find you
    There's no way to stop it, but they'll try to

    Running like a river trying to find the ocean
    Flowers in the concrete
    Climbing over fences, blooming in the shadows
    Places that you can't see
    Coming through the melody when the night bird sings
    Love is a wild thing

    Oh, I can feel it, magic in your fingertips
    And I can hear it in the words coming off your lips

    Even if you lose me, I will find you
    There's no way to stop it, so don't try to

    Running like a river trying to find the ocean
    Flowers in the concrete
    Climbing over fences, blooming in the shadows
    Places that you can't see
    Coming through the melody when the night bird sings
    Love is a wild thing

    I used to be scared of the wilderness, of the dark

    Love is a wild thing
    Love is a wild thing
    Love is a wild thing, yeah

  84. Primrose Haran

  85. Jay Amos

    You need to move back to TEXAS...YOU! have LOST! your WAY!!!

    F E

    Jay Amos nah she hasnt. She knows exactly where she is.

    Brooke Tymowicz

    Her music is progressing because she’s not the same person. I feel like this album shows how happy she is now.

    Shawna Casey

    Ahh, I love that she’s not a one-trick pony. Don’t you? (Keep drawing outside the lines Kasey. 😘-you are beautifully and multi-dimensionally talented).

  87. Cristina Arias

    The whole song is just plain gorgeous but the chorus honestly feels like a stab to the heart.

    Day 0

    Cristina Arias you can thank Richard Edwards for that. Look up rollin’ rollin’ rollin’. The chorus was taken from there.

    Onix Junes

    @Day 0 IT"S NOT THE SAME CHORUS!

  88. __evm __

    Mad love for you kacey💙

  89. BearTruth

    Getting Fleetwood Mac vibes.

    F E

    michael henderson, I'm not a Fleetwood Mac fan but I get that. In a good way like.

    Elijah Baird

    If you get Fleetwood Mac vibes from this than you've obviously never listened to Fleetwood Mac.

    Fabulous Killjoy

    I was actually just thinking the same thing, tbh

    Tim Cook

    @Elijah Baird go to bed, wig.

    Andy Kintopf

    She reminds me of Stevie <3

  90. Andrew Chang

    How could every single track in the album so perfect??

    Drew Baby drew

    Andrew ,because

    Ralph Wesner

    Because the most beautiful things come from the heart and soul of a person, and when they are true and unflinching of fact and feeling they are the closed we could ever get to perfection. This song is one of those things.

    Dave Shephard

    because it is Kacey lol

    Rohan Bardeskar

    IKR?!! 🙈🙈

    D E A T H O F T H E B R I D E
