  • You used to be the girl that set the world on fire
    And they drenched your soul in water but the flames reached higher
    Used to act so tough like you could walk on a wire
    And they called you devil's daughter, such a pretty liar
    Yeah
    Yeah

    You were burning like the summer, crazy like a fox
    You hit harder than a drummer, like a wave on the rocks
    You could play me like the lotto, you were playing a part
    There ain't nobody could tame you and your wild heart
    Yeah
    Yeah

    Take me back
    To those barefoot summer nights
    Take me back
    Running down those highway lights
    Remember when
    We said don't let go to it
    Darling take me back
    To that fire in your eyes
    'Cause I know it ain't gone too far
    Take me back to you and to your wild heart
    Yeah
    To your wild heart
    Yeah

    You used to be the girl that could light up a room
    And with the flip of a switch I bet you still do
    You will leave a trail of danger yeah wherever you go
    And no matter where it lead me I would follow
    Yeah
    Mmm yeah

    You look beautiful in blue jeans, holes on the knees
    You were smoking like a cigarette, I couldn't breathe
    Used to rock around the ballroom, dance on the bar
    Baby nobody could tame you and your wild heart

    Take me back
    To those barefoot summer nights
    Take me back
    Running down those highway lights
    Remember when
    We said don't let go to it
    Darling take me back
    To that fire in your eyes
    'Cause I know it ain't gone too far
    Take me back to you and to your wild heart
    Yeah
    To your wild heart
    Yeah

    You used to be the girl that set the world on fire
    And they drenched your soul in water but the flames reached higher
    You'll always be the one that keep me crazy inside
    And if you got a wild heart don't you let it die

    Take me back (take me back)
    To those barefoot summer nights
    Take me back (take me back)
    Running down those highway lights
    Remember when (remember when)
    We said don't let go to it
    Darling take me back (take me back)
    To that fire in your eyes
    'Cause I know it ain't gone too far
    Take me back to you and to your wild heart
    Yeah
    To your wild heart
    Yeah
    To your wild heart
    To your wild heart
