​The Wild Men

This song is by Dudley Saunders and appears on the album The Emergency Lane (2007).

Babyboy
Are you sleeping
Have you heard
A word I've said
Is your body
Still a-breathing
Can you live
This life we've led

I wish you were
A swallow flying
You'd fly this high
And lonesome place
And join your wild men
In their sighing
And linger in
Their salty taste

On our sidewalk
In the summer
Lies a man
A-baking slow
Seeds and coins
Fall from his slumber
His burning mother
Holding close

I wish you were
A swallow flying
You'd fly this high
And lonesome place
And join your wild men
In their sighing
And linger in
Their salty taste

I wish I were
A swallow flying
I'd find your high
And lonesome place
And join your wild men
In their sighing
And linger in
Their salty taste
