I am a lone wolf
a beauty and a beast
both hunter and hunted
soft tongue and sharp teeth

I´m toned from my travels
yet raw from this road
as I drink from storm puddles
and the stories I´m told

Help me figure this out
help me figure you in
you´re a shadow to me
that I echo when I sing

Help me figure this out
help me figure you in
To this simple little melody

I have seen angels
they were sleeping in gutters
they were standing in bank lines
they were jumping from towers
they were calling like seagulls
but nobody heard
such a beautiful message
from such a common bird

We want freedom for ourselves
but we can´t give it to each other

We want peace between nations
yet we battle with our lovers

we´re blinded by billboards
and trying to get ahead
choking on ambition
and the words left unsaid

I am a lone wolf
a beauty and a beast
both hunter and hunted
soft tongue and sharp teeth

I´m toned from my travels
yet raw from this road
as I drink from storm puddles
and the stories I´m told

Help me figure this out
help me figure you in
you´re a shadow to me
that I echo when I sing

help me figure this out
help me figure you in
