"The Wolf" as written by and Charlie Brand....
Add nice
Sugar and spice
I'll take you on a cruise to somewhere nice
You haven't been before
Love was meant for more
You moved up close, I could feel your sweat
I kissed you on the neck and you got wet
It's a shallow treat for a guy like me

Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Like they want to go home with you
Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Like they want to go home with you

I've got nothin' keeping me here
I've wasted all the love that I hold dear
I'll throw a dart: L.A.
The wolf has run away
The guy you know thinks he's so slick
He'll kiss you on the lips but he'll get sick
Lothario
He's a creep you know

Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Like they want to go home with you
Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Like they want to go home with you

I'm on your trail, I can smell your blood
I've had enough with unrequited love
It's the coast I crave
Leads me to my grave
Still in my head was the sick of my spine
Give it up and I will make you mine
I will buy you things
Like diamond rings

Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Like they want to go home with you
Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Everybody's looking at you like they want to
Like they want to go home with you

    General Commentwell, i dont think the meaning is too hard to see. but in my nervous insecure moments, singing this song to myself.. it makes me feel so so good! catchy and easy to listen to. very literal.

    and if you dont know, lothario is a play character who seduces women, it also means a person who seduces women in general.

    General Commentso basically I think I think that maybe this ladies' man has found the one. He found her and she's all he sees. "Everybodys looking at you like they want to..." thats great :)

    my favorite lines "i will buy you things. Like diamond rings" i have that on a shirt now haha. Its saying that he would get her anything in the world, and he uses diamonds because they are one of the main symbols of rich, and the most beautiful things.
    I love this song:)

    My InterpretationI actually had a really different take on this song, whether I am right or wrong. But in the first verse I can see he meets this girl and would give her anything. She must be the hottest girl alive because everyone looks at her and wants to go home with her. In the second verse I guess that they have broken up, he has been having no luck with anyone else because he can't get over this one girl. So he moves on to L.A. This girl must be meeting other guys and he is thinking that none of them will work out because obviously he is the one, whether she believes that or not is a different story. Once again, she is a super attractive chick and everyone wants to go home with her. It then gets a little creepy. He is totally obsessed with this woman and can't/won't get over her. She must force herself to be with him because he is convinced they must be together. He will give her anything she wants in order for his wish to happen. And then blah blah, the ending, everyone wants her.

    I don't know if it's just me, but this is how I interpreted the song.

    My InterpretationI think the song is kind of like the story of a loser who gets a chance with a beautiful popular girl.
    In the first verse he's talking about how he thinks she's perfect and she deserves to have someone "take you on a cruise to somewhere nice you haven't been before" because "love was meant for more." Then the next part of when they're hooking up (probably like at a party or something)

    And then the chorus is talking about how "Everybody's looking at you like they want to go home with you" because she so beautiful.

    The second verse is after they sort of break-up (I'm not sure if they we're together at all in the first place). He's saying without his love there's no reason to stay where he is so he runs away to L.A. Here I think he refers to himself as a wolf because it's like a Lone Wolf a.k.a a loser. The girls gets together with a guy who's a player or "Lothario" and the boy says he a creep because he's jealous.

    And the chorus again.....

    The third verse is when he's given up trying to get over his feelings. He's tired of not being loved back or "I've had enough with unrequited love" so he's trying to find the girl again because she's "the coast I crave." The last few lines I think is after he finds the girl again she doesn't take him back but he says she should just give it up because in the end he'll have her because he'll "buy her things like diamond rings."

    The last chorus part I like to think is after they're together again and while the boy is with the girl people still look at her because of her beauty.

    General CommentGreat song, very clever lyrics. From my point of view it looks like this is a story about a sort of hot and cold relationship. Really interesting how the context of the verse changes the meaning of the chorus without changing the lyrics or tone of the song.

    the first verse talks about the relationship from a sort of immature viewpoint referencing a child's rhyme and focusing on the sexual attraction alone. the following chorus is him proudly saying how everybody wants to take the girl home apparently because she's attractive and how he's the lucky guy who is taking her home.

    The second verse is almost a complete reversal where the relationship is now very toxic. They apparently move to LA on a whim (like they threw a dart on a map and it landed near LA) but it doesn't solve anything. He talks about how all of their love is wasted and the Lothario reference implies that either she is cheating on him or he thinks she is cheating on him when she actually isn't.

    Here the chorus changes and instead of him being proud to be with her he despises how other men are looking to take his girlfriend from him and is paranoid about the relationship.

    The last verse isn't as clear but to me it looks like the main guy recognizes that his insecurity is only making things worse and he truly does love the girl and is willing to make compromises to make things better and possibly marrying her.

    The final chorus being neither prideful nor paranoid but simply stating that everyone is going to be going after his girl like it's something that he is just going to have to deal with.
