  1. Wild and Free

Lyrics

WILD & FREE music & lyrics by Brian Campbell ©registration SOCAN

We met on a city street
We dated in cafes
Where we showed our stories and our poems
We didn’t have much of anything
In title or in name
Most would have said our lives were pretty tame

We were wild & free
We were wild & free
Though it just didn’t always seem so at the time
We were wild & free
We were wild & free
Moments when just breathing was sublime

We drank wine, make love
When we were feeling tense
Which was pretty well all the time
We went to movies, restaurants
Shared our books and songs
Our ordinary, extraordinary lives

We were wild & free
We were wild & free
Just didn’t always seem so at the time
We were wild & free
We were wild & free

This world can open such a wondrous frontier
City of brick and mortar,
Horizons so clear —

We’re so much older now
Settled in our home
We even take vacations to the south
You could say now we’re slowing down, but we’re
Faster in our minds
And daily we give thanks for this time

We’re wild & free
We’re wild & free
Just doesn’t always seem so at the time
We’re wild and free
We’re wild and free

We’re wild & free
We’re wild & free
Just doesn’t always seem so at the time
We’re wild and free
We’re wild and free
