An ode to the wandering heart, “Wild Seed” is a requiem for a relationship that can never be, as the main character recognizes that she is unable to settle down, even as she acknowledges her love for the one she is leaving. “On the wind I am blown / Oh, the wild seed is never sown..”

Lyrics

WILD SEED / Susan B. Shann / copyright 2005 / Mystics Mantra Music, ASCAP

There’s no way to make this easy, to wish away the pain
And tho’ I know I must be leavin’, part of me remains
Where the feeling runs so deeply
There’s nothing I can say to make this right
So just hold me once before I go
’Cause I won’t be comin’ home tonight

On the wind I am blown
Oh, the wild seed is never sown

I could say I never planned it, never meant to leave
And anyone could understand it - it’s easy to believe
But I know that’s not the truth
It’s myself I can’t deceive - not this time
So just touch me once before I go, ‘cause I won’t be comin’ home tonight

On the wind I am blown
Oh, the wild seed is never sown

I suppose I should just settle down
And plant my feet upon the ground
I just don’t know how to do that
And I could tell you how I love you still
And how I guess I always will
Ah, but you already knew that

So I’ll set a course for anywhere, before I change my mind
And maybe someday I’ll discover there what I hope to find
I can’t put my finger on it, but like gravity it pulls me to it’s light
So just hold me once before I go, ‘cause I won’t be comin’ home tonight

On the wind I am blown
Oh, the wild seed is never sown
On the wind I am blown
Oh, the wild seed is never sown
Never sown, never sown
