My Heart Is Wild

Some say love is a burning thing
That makes a fiery ring
All that I know love as a caging thing
Just a killer come to call from some awful dream
And all you folks, you come to see
You just stand there in the glass looking at me
But my heart is wild, and my bones are steel
And I could kill you with my bare hands if I was free

(From the song, “Song For Zula,” by Phosphorescent. This song can be found on their sixth studio release, “Muchacho,” on the Dead Oceans label. The entire record is amazing, a huge shift in sound and mood that totally works.
