Def Leppard - Animal Lyrics

A wild ride, over stony ground
Such a lust for life, the circus comes to town
We are the hungry ones, on a lightning raid
Just like a river runs, like a fire needs a flame
I burn for you

[Chorus]
I gotta feel it in my blood, whoa oh
I need you touch don't need your love, whoa oh
And I want, and I need,
And I lust, animal
And I want, and I need,
And I lust, animal

Cry wolf, given mouth to mouth
Like a movin' heartbeat in the witching hour
I'm runnin' with the wind, a shadow in the dust
And like the drivin' rain, yeah, like the restless rust
I never sleep

[Chorus]

Huh!
Ah!

Cry wolf, baby cry tough
Gonna hunt you like an, an, an, an, an animal
Gonna take you love 'n' run

Cry wolf, given mouth to mouth
Like a movin' heartbeat in the witching hour
I'm runnin' with the wind, a shadow in the dust
And like the drivin' rain, yeah, like the restless rust
I never sleep

[Chorus]

And I want, and I need,
And I lust, animal
Take me, tame me
Make me your animal
Show me, stroke me
Let me be your animal
I want, ooh yeah, animal
