On the streets of this town
There is no surrender
They've got a number for every name
Buildings and shopping malls
Seem like a stage for pretenders
They criticize the clothes you wear
They try to make you feel like a stranger
Cause you do things they wouldn't dare
Who cares who's right and who's wrong
Because we know where we belong

The wild heart is calling us
Out in the night
A primitive love in your eyes
And out on the wasteland of broken dreams

Go you and I
We're the restless ones

(Oh)
Oh yeah
The restless ones
Step outside of yourself
And you'll see through the changes

Leave your mark
Let them know you came
But don't lead the rest of your lives

In plastic cages
Cause you do things they wouldn't dare
Who cares who's right and who's wrong
Because we know where we belong
The wild heart is calling us
Out in the night

A primitive love in your eyes
And out on the wasteland of broken dreams
Go you and I
We're the restless ones
(Oh)
Oh yeah
That's all we'll ever be
Yeah (oh)
You're the restless one
You're just like me
And sometimes I just walk the streets at night

Wonder where I'm going
Can't relate to nothing no more
But listen you hear it call
The wild heart is taking us
Out in the night
A primitive love in your eyes
And sometimes I feel like a loaded gun

Cause just like you
I'm the restless one
(Oh)
Oh yeah

That's all I'll ever be
Oh you're the restless one
(Oh)
And baby you're just like me
Oh
(Oh)
Oh yeah

You're the restless one
You're the restless one
(Oh)
And that's all we'll ever be
