Wild Young Women

Wild young women, out in the city.
Full of love and dreams and power.
Wild young women, out on the town.
Walking on the stars in the witching hour.

All those boys are yours, and hearts
are open to the whispers of desire.
All those lovers are yours, and
a shared high is all the sun’s fire.

Those touches go to your very soul.
And you can make Chicago by dawn.
Those kisses make the world bright,
and at sun up the confessions are drawn.

Wild young women, out in the city.
Full of love and dreams and power.
Wild young women, out on the town.
Walking on the stars in the witching hour.

I try to remember it all, as I see you,
as all that I once dreamed burned out.
I try to remember it all, jealous of you,
as the demons take love in a one sided rout.

Wild young women, out in the city.
Full of love and dreams and power.
Wild young women, out on the town.
Walking on the stars in the witching hour.
