"Werewolf Heart" as written by and Tim Anderson Zach Shields....
You'd look nice in a grave
I smile at the moon, death is on my face
And if you wait too long
Then you'll never see the dawn again

My skull is full of sunken ships
My heart's a prisoner to my ribs
We're flesh and bone when we're all alone
But together, forever, we'll live

There's gold in my heart
But the winds took my sails through the dark
And if you wait too long
then you'll never see the dawn again

He filled my heart, I did my best
But without the sun, I'm only shadows in a dress
'Cause if the full moon comes, our love is done
So forever, towards dawn, we run

    Lyric CorrectionI think it makes a lot more sense if the last two lines are:
    "'Cause if the full moon comes, our love is done,
    So forever, towards dawn, we run".

    General Commentthis song is one of my favorites on this album.

    the only correction to make here that i can obviously pick out is the title. it should be "werewolf heart."

    General CommentI always thought she said "My heart's a prisoner to my lips" but obviously yours makes more sense.

    General CommentIt's funny that a lot of people comment on all their lyrics don't really say the mean of the song just 'love them'
    lol
    It's hard to tell isn't it? =P

    Well, I think this one is about her talking about how love sometimes doesn't work for certain reasons.
    Maybe because she is trapped to or behind something?

    BTW love them.
    Listen to them all da err da.

    My Interpretation"Werewolf heart" in accordance to the title, which evidently unveils the meaning of the song, it suggest that there is conflict with the heart and decisions? When a human transforms into a werewolf, they're changing, as too, the person is changing in love. I have't wholly analyzed the song, but from the tittle, I assume that's the meaning.

    My InterpretationMaybe become a werewolf will end their love. But change's coming and it's somehow unstoppable.
