I don't want to claim you
I don't want to shame you
I just want to let you
Rest your head
I don't want to name you
I don't want to tame you
I'm dying to give you
Love instead
Cuz ooo baby you're my wild one
Ooo baby you're my wild one

If you were someone else
You wouldn't light a fire
That burns a second skin
And fills me with desire
If you were someone else
With any harder lips
I wouldn’t want to hold you
And move against your hips
And move against your hips

I don't want to claim you
I don't want to shame you
I just want to let you
Rest your head
I don't want to name you
I don't want to tame you
I'm dying to give you
Love instead
Cuz ooo baby you're my wild one
Ooo baby you're my wild one

We're only here a moment
When life is all to still
Will future busy days
Grow our love or kill
The hours that we spent
Moving in the dark
Or maybe daily grinds
Could magnetize the spark
Could magnetize the spark
Could magnetize the spark

But ooo baby if you're my wild one
Who am I to you?
A place for you to stay
When life gets in the way
Or a source of warmth to find
When your world of wildness
Gets a little too unkind

Ooo baby you're my wild one
Ooo baby you're my wild one
My wild one, my wild one

Beth Henderson - Wild One (Interview)

Interview

A beautiful voice visits us today. We’re talking about the super talented Beth Henderson.

Beth Henderson, tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Beth and I’m a Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter trying to live in the moment when there doesn’t seem to be enough moments to go around.

We would like to know your history as an artist.

I found my footing as an artist through theater – I even studied it in college – but it wasn’t until I was well out of school and living in New York that I first tried my hand at songwriting. I had just broken up with a very serious boyfriend and was adrift, personally, professionally, and artistically. First, I began writing, then I found my way to an open mic in Harlem where I, thanks to encouragement from my friend Sarah (an amazing musician herself), performed for the first time and found a beautifully supportive community of artists.

Tell us the story of this song.

I started writing this song sitting on a porch upstate on my 30th birthday trip, waiting for my lover to return from gathering firewood. We met in the early stages of COVID, spending a month just walking and talking through industrial Bushwick before ever becoming physical. When we finally did come together, it was like something I’d never experienced before and, during these early stages of quarantine, we had all the time in the world to discover each other. But the whispers of our former lives were returning on this birthday getaway and I began to realize just how different we were. This song was a promise to myself to let go, give in, and to enjoy whatever we could spark in this temporary, wild creation of ours.

Tell us a funny story from your career.

I was playing in a small cafe uptown one night, and I thought I’d try out some more sexually explicit content since the small crowd seemed to be a group of chill creators. I’m not 3 lines into my most "adult" song and my brand new coworker walks in wither her boyfriend. I had forgotten I mentioned the gig earlier in the workday. So, while I was so grateful for them being there—I was also incredibly embarrassed. I rolled with it, bought them a drink afterward, and had a good laugh about it – she’s one of my biggest supporters to this day.

Also, tell a story of overcoming.

I grew up incredibly shy, not really knowing how to share or accept attention. My friends from high school still tease me about how different I was back then! Slowly, over the years, I’ve stripped away things that haven’t served me and developed traits that I admire. That didn’t come without some struggle – the first time I was going to perform, I got indigestion so bad that I almost canceled. But, I took a deep breath, ignored my gurgling stomach, and sang my song.

Leave a message for your fans.

Times are very hard right now, but that doesn’t mean you have to be hard on yourself. Please give yourself some love for me, in whatever way speaks to you. Thrifting? Walking? Singing? Meditating? I promise you that you’ve got the time – take it!

Beth Henderson, it was a great pleasure to have you here. Beth, your voice has left us in love. We wish you great success in your career.

And see you in the next interview. Bye!
