"Untamed" as written by and Gavin Degraw....
The letters you wrote me have hollow point headers
If you think you've got it like that find somebody better
You said I need fixing, you numbered the stages
But I won't be living in one of your cages
Open your mind and understand

When you're hard on me, it's not what I need
We were meant to be untamed
I'm on my feet, wanna run free
Because nobody's taming me.

I'm out from the narrow protective container
Designed to be opened with your childish behavior
Cause you're not the critic of personal purpose
And I'm just not willin' to community service
I don't know why you lay it on

When you're hard on me, it's not what I need
We were meant to be untamed
I'm on my feet, wanna run free
Because nobody's taming me.

You say that I should lend a shoulder
Right now, cause your whole world is blowing up
Go ahead, but I won't be your soldier
Cause you're the one who started up,
You're the one who started up

When you're hard on me, it's not what I need
We were meant to be untamed
I'm on my feet, wanna run free
Because nobody's taming me.

When you're hard on me, it's not what I need
We were meant to be untamed
I'm on my feet, wanna run free
Because nobody's taming me.

Because nobody's taming me

We were meant, we were meant to be untamed.

We were meant, we were meant to be
We were meant to be untamed

Oh, oh

    General CommentOh, am I first to comment?? :) Well, I love this song. When I first listened to it, I thought it was about having certain freedom in a relationship but Gavin said in an interview that it's also about being yourself and not letting others tell you what to be or what to do.

    My favourite line is "I won't be living in one of your cages". Probably my fave song on the new album!
