"Wild Places" as written by and Dan / Fogelberg....
La prima donna slipped into her leather
But she was restless, she knew it in her heart of hearts
She said 'tonight you'd better pull yourself together
Because tonight I'm going to pull myself apart'
Out on the streets everyone is searching for a thrill
But she's the only one that's out there really dressed to kill
And she said 'listen to me, it's not a tragedy
This time I'm getting through and now there's something
You can do for me and ohhhh...
Take me to the wild places
And let me show you what the night is for
'Cause I don't want to dream
I want to set the wheels in motion
I don't want to see your eyes across a dancing floor...

TV angel with her eyes full of smoke
Gazing at the hero, he's do mucho macho
He shrugs, he says 'this must be some kind of joke'
As she pulls on his cigarette and loves him to distraction
But she cries 'I don't want to feel like a machine
I'm not the only one who wants to feel the in-between
That's why I'm deep into this fatal fascination
That's why I've lost the art of conversation
And ohhh..
Take me to the wild places
If you want to see what's really in my soul
But you better keep your eye on where my pretty face is
'Cause in the heat of the moment
I just lose control (2x)
Eyes out of focus, the sharpening of blades
The sad tension, reek of Patchouli
Even the jokers are dealing in spades
It's one dimension, it's all so passé
Just then a voice said 'honey
It's too late to change your mind'
Her face tightened, I could see she'd found a new design
And she said 'listen to me, it's just a fantasy
This time I'm coming through and now
There's something you can do for me
Ohh.. Take me to the wild places
And let me show you what the night is for
And I don't want to dream
I want to set the wheels in motion
I want to see your eyes across the dancing floor
Ooh, lover set the wheels in motion (3x)
In the heat of the moment I just lose control..
