Stevie Nicks The Wild Heart 1983

Wild Heart

Something in my heart died last night
Just one more chip off an already broken heart
I think the heart broke long ago
That’s when I needed you
When I needed you most
That’s when I needed you
When I needed you most

Well, I run around like a spirit in flight
Fearlessness is fearlessness
I will not forget this night
Dare my wild heart
Dare my wild heart

Where is the reason
Don’t blame it on me
Blame it on my wild heart
As to the seasons
You fought from the beginning
Long before I knew it
There was a danger
And the danger was
To fall in love

In dark sorrow
They gaze down into the darkest heart
If I leave you
You say not even you can tear us apart, whoa
Say you’re leaving
You say, you don’t even know
How to start
How to start
How to start
Well, believe it then
And don’t blame it on my soul
Blame it on my wild heart
Ooh, on my wild heart
Ooh…

Fire on fire
Rain on my face
Fever goes higher
What can you do
Wild in the darkest places of your mind
That’s where I needed you
Where I needed you most
That’s where I needed you
Where I needed you most
Where is the reason
Well, don’t blame it on me
Blame it on my wild heart
There is a reason
Why even the angels
Don’t give it up at all
(Blame it on me
Blame it on me)
Where are the children
Well, are they hopelessly enchanted
Blame it on the angels
(Blame it on me)
(Blame it on me)
Where are the reasons
Don’t blame it on us
Blame it on our
Wild heart
Wild heart
Wild heart
Wild heart

On my wild heart
On my wild heart

Well, even in the darkest places of your mind
(Even in the darkest places of your mind)
Whoa, are the children are they hopelessly enchanted
(Are the children like hopelessly enchanted)
Wild in the darkest places of your mind
(Darkest places of your mind)
No, don’t blame it on me, baby

Blame it on my wild heart
(Blame it on my, blame it on my, blame it on my)
(Blame it on my, blame it on my, blame it on my)
Ooh… Ooh… ooh…

Blame it on my wild heart
Blame it on my wild heart
(Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby)
Blame it on my wild heart
Blame it on my wild, wild, wild
(Don’t blame it on my, don’t blame it on my)

Wild heart
Blame it on my wild heart
Baby, even in the darkest places of your mind
(Don’t blame it my)

About the Song

“Wild Heart” is the first track on The Wild Heart, preceding “If Anyone Falls.”

“It was born in New York, and it’s just intense. There are some wild words in it that just sort of popped up. I think that people are gonna love ‘Wild Heart.’ It’s the one song that I go back to time to time again and listen to. There’s something about the vocal that just gives me shivers because it’s just so real. People will understand that, probably more than a lot of other things, because it definitely takes you through your nervous breakdown and through your recovery, and it takes you through your survival. And everybody’s heart is wild, so it’s not like I’ve got any kind of hold on it, ’cause this entire album was written for everybody and their wild heart. This was very much meant to be shared and given to people to have them just love the idea that they have wild hearts ’cause I love that—I love that.”
