Some say the wolves will change this time of year
Their skin shed on the snow but they're not there
Don't you fear, down that endless stream
Where you and me

Fickle as it seems, the sun will rise tomorrow
Grains of sand keep carving out the waste
Sleep, the day will soon be ending
Sleep the day away

No, don't you waste your tears, someone's love will come to catch you
Save them, you will need as many as you can
So you better hitch that ride, you better take it
'Cause if you don't, the wolves make you run

Sleep tonight, my tired love

Yes, I will keep your toys
And keep them safely
Underneath the mattress of my bed
And if you ever come back, I'll be waiting

So don't you despair
No you can't, no you can't
No you can't, oh no you can't
No you can't, oh no you can't

Remember all you ever cared for
This world will never end while we are here
Take him out, be happy as a flower
I'll see you there beyond the clouds
I'll see you there beyond the clouds

    General CommentI'm sorry if the lyrics aren't right, but I'm pretty sure there are no other lyrics for this song out there. Also, I'm, like, marginally deaf and have a reputation for hearing weird things in songs, and again, sorry.

    I'm not sure what the lyrics themselves mean, though. It's definitely about innocence and hope, but I don't know what the wolves stand for. It sounds negative...it's sort of cool about the werewolf reference, though.

    Lyric CorrectionI think it's more like this

    Some say the wolves will change this time of year
    Their skin shed on the snow but they're not there
    Don't you fear
    Down that endless streem where you lay
    Fickle as it seems the sun will rise tomorrow
    Grains of sand keep carving out the waste
    Sleep, the day will soon be ending
    Sleep the day away

    Now don't you waste your tears
    Someone's love will come to catch you
    Save them, you and me, as many as you can
    So you better hitch that ride, you better take it
    'Cause if you don't the wolves make you run

    Sleep tonight my tired one

    Yes I will keep your toys and keep them safely
    Underneath the mattress of my bed
    And if you ever come back I'll be waiting

    So don't you despair, no you can't, no you can't...

    Remember all you ever cared for
    School would never end when we are here
    Take it now, be happy as a flower
    I'll see you there beyond the clouds

    General CommentI think the last part is

    Remember all you ever cared for
    This world will never end while we are here
    Take care now, be happy as a flower
    I'll see you there beyond the clouds

    It's somewhat abstract... but I think the song is about trying to cope with the death or loss of someone she loved
