The Cult - Wild Flower


The Cult - Wild Flower - Meaning of the song


This song finds Ian Astbury adopting his rock star alter ego of Wolfchild, indulging in hard liquor, powder-format drugs and fast women.


"It was my persona for when I'd stepped over the line of making sensible choices."


Wild flower (and the song) gives the impression that the object of their affection is a bit of free spirit (wild) and the flower points to a female. The song talks about how they make them feel (the euphoria of love, how it makes you act strange and the intoxication of love).



Wild Flower - Lyrics


Hey you

You're a wild honey child

I'm out of control

Every time you are near me

I'm a wolf child, baby

And I'm howlin' for you

My heart beats faster, hrrrr

Hey hey, and it's overpowered, wow


I'm a wolf child, girl

Howlin' for you

Wild flower

Star of my dreams

The most beautiful thing, yeah


Yeah you

Sweet sensation of a nation

Oh, my soul

You're a perfect creation

You're an angel, baby

And I'm cryin' for you

My heart beats faster, hrrrr

Yea hey, and I'm overpowered


I'm a wolf child, girl

Howlin' for you

Wild flower

Star of my dreams

The most beautiful thing

Wild flower

I love you every hour

Wild flower

Burning down the night

Set the world alight, yeah


Wild flower

I'm a wolf child, girl

Howlin' for you

Wild flower

You're the star of my dreams

Most beautiful thing

Wild flower

I love you every hour

Wild flower

I love you every hour


Crazy 'bout you, yeah

Crazy 'bout you, girl

Crazy 'bout you, yeah

Crazy 'bout

Crazy 'bout you, yeah
