Song: Something Wild

Artist: Lindsey Stirling (violinist) ft. Andrew McMahon (vocals)

Album: Brave Enough

Genre: Pop

Release Date: 2016


 

I found this gem in Disney’s 2016 movie: Pete’s Dragon.

*As always, a YouTube video of the song is provided below the lyrics*

Why this song is on my hit-list:

1. The lyrics (of course): 

My interpretation of the words: Never be afraid to follow your own goals in life.

  • Sometimes the directions we follow in life are not part of the map that we intentionally drew up ourselves. This song is a nice reminder to stick to your own “road less traveled.”
“You had your maps drawn
You had other plans
To hang your hopes on
Every road they let you down felt so wrong
So you found another way”

 

2. The interplay between the rhythmic tempo and the violin:

The beginning starts with a simple, rhythmic piano beat that later mingles with the high pitch harmonies of a violin. The song eventually evolves into this harmonic tug-of-war between the vocals, violin, and piano.

 


Lyrics:

You had your maps drawn
You had other plans
To hang your hopes on
Every road they let you down felt so wrong
So you found another way

You’ve got a big heart
The way you see the world
It got you this far
You might have some bruises
And a few scars
But you know you’re gonna be okay

Even though you’re scared
You’re stronger than you know

If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding
Caught in all, the stars are hiding
That’s when something wild calls you home, home
If you face the fear that keeps you frozen
Chase the sky into the ocean
That’s when something wild calls you home, home

Sometimes the past can
Make the ground beneath you feel like quicksand
You don’t have to worry
You reach for my hand
And I know you’re gonna be okay
You’re gonna be okay

Even though you’re scared
You’re stronger than you know

If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding
Caught in all, the stars are hiding
That’s when something wild calls you home, home
If you face the fear that keeps you frozen
Chase the sky into the ocean
That’s when something wild calls you home, home

Calls you home
Calls you home
Calls you home
Calls you home

If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding
Caught in all, the stars are hiding
That’s when something wild calls you home…

If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding
Caught in all, the stars are hiding
That’s when something wild calls you home, home
If you face the fear that keeps you frozen
Chase the sky into the ocean
That’s when something wild calls you home, home
