"Wild Is The Wind" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Desmond Child, Diane Eve Warren and Richard Sambora....
Love me, love me, love me, say you do
Let me fly away with you
For my love is like the wind
And wild is the wind

Give me more than one caress
Satisfy this hungriness
Let the wind blow through your heart
For wild is the wind

You touch me
I hear the sound of mandolins
You kiss me
With your kiss my life begins
You're spring to me
All things to me

Don't you know you're life itself
Like a leaf clings to a tree
Oh my darling, cling to me
For we're creatures of the wind
And wild is the wind
So wild is the wind

You touch me
I hear the sound of mandolins
You kiss me
With your kiss my life begins
Daddy, you're spring to me
All things to me

Don't you know you're life itself
Like a leaf clings to a tree
Oh my darling, cling to me
For we're creatures of the wind
And wild is the wind
So wild is the wind

Wild is the wind
Wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

    General CommentThe piano, her voice...everything about this song sends shivers down my spine, the piano at times just floats away on its own...so dramatic and so delicate! her voice is so warm and passionate. Man I'm just in love with this song!

    General CommentBeautiful song, which is pretty self-explanatory really.

    Don't you know you're
    life itself
    Like a leaf clings
    to a tree
    Oh my darling,
    cling to me

    That is just wonderful.

    General CommentThe song was originally recorded by Johnny Mathis in 1956, for a film also called "Wild Is The Wind", but of course it was made *most* famous by Nina Simone, whose interpretation is so passionate it gives you chills.

    General CommentI've been a fan of Nina Simone for a while but I've only just heard this song. It's quickly becoming one of my favourites.

    As Songmeaningsuser says, it seems fairly self-explanatory. It's about a new, wild, passionate love affair. I just feel like there are darker undertones to it, like if this one goes wrong then it all goes wrong, or maybe the other person isn't quite as committed yet and that's why the speaker encourages them to let go and give them more, to let themselves go with it because in the end the wind is too wild to resist anyway.

    General CommentOnly Bowie can sing they lyrics "You touch me and I hear mandolins" and can make it sound sexy. This is definitely in my top 5 most romantic songs list, an ideal love song for two people deeply and newly in love.

    General CommentThis song was used on the 10/24/13 episode of the tv show Scandal. Not sure it fit the scene, but it definitely made me want to hear it. I see it as the desperate plea of one half of a couple in a long term relationship, that is possibly coming to an end. The person singing wants to continue and is desperately expressing their feelings. I would guess that it probably does not end well.

    My Interpretationalthough from the words it seems straightforward, if we are talking about the Nina Simone version, like everything she does - i think it goes deeper. The sombre, melancholic piano music, slow drum snare, the depth of the sadness in her voice. This is about how love can leave you helpless and hopeless. - Love me, love me, love me, say you do
    The person she addresses has no idea how much power they have over her - she even laughs it off at one point - hmm.. Don't you know you're life itself?

    best line is - like a leaf clings to a tree, oh my darling cling to me.. at this point you think she is the leaf, but its actually her object of love - almost daring him/her to love with the same intensity that she does
