"Tales From The Forest Of Gnomes" as written by and Myles Heskett Andrew Stockdale....
Oh my friend don't get caught in yesterday,
All the things we've heard have left and made their way,

Lower your guns even if love turns to spite,
We may find the enemy waiting inside,
Light the candle to see what may unfold,

If you listen to the sound within your mind,
You may find your answer flowing in the tide,

Say goodbye to your sorrow,
And hello to tomorrow,
Well I hear the fiddlers call,
Say that love is here for all,

So I wrote her a letter,
And I tried to forget her,
Well I don't know id I'll go,
Can you hear the river flow,

Say goodbye to your sorrow,
And hello to tomorrow,
Well I hear the fiddlers call,
Say that love is here for all,

Lower your guns even if love turns to spite,
We may find the enemy waiting inside,
Light the candle to see what may unfold,

Oh my friend I hope your done with yesterday,
All the things we've heard have left and made their way,

Say goodbye to your sorrow,
And hello to tomorrow,
Well I hear the fiddlers call,
Say that love is here for all,

So I wrote her a letter,
And I tried to forget her,
Well I don't know id I'll go,
Can you hear the river flow,

Say goodbye to your sorrow,
And hello to tomorrow,
Well I hear the fiddlers call,
Say that love is here for all,

Lower your guns even if love turns to spite,
We may find the enemy waiting inside,
Light the candle to see what may unfold,

    General CommentThe meaning is kinda like akuna matada (from lion king). Its saying that theres no use dwelling on the past, because you cant change it. But you CAN change the future, so you should put more effort into it than wallowing in self pity.
    It would be a good lesson for emos, if any of them listened to Wolfmother....

    General CommentThis song is so fucking amazing.
    it is by far my favorite Wolfmother song
    if any band today is worth listening to its Wolfmother, all these shitty hardcore, screamo, rap, and pop bands are a mockery of music but Wolfmother is bringing back the classic sounds that was in a time that music meant rocking out and flowing with your emotions to the songs you wrote or listened to. gaddamn i love these guys haha
