"She Wolf (Falling to Pieces)" as written by Sia Furler, Chris Braide, David Guetta and Giorgio,....
A shot in the dark
A past lost in space
Where do I start?
The past and the chase
You hunted me down
Like a wolf, a predator
I felt like a deer in the lights

You loved me and I froze in time
Hungry for that flesh of mine
But I can't compete with the she wolf who has brought me to my knees
What do you see in those yellow eyes?
'Cause I'm falling to pieces

I'm falling to pieces
I'm falling to pieces
I'm falling to pieces
Falling to pieces

Did she lie and wait
Was I bait, to pull you in
The thrill of the kill
You feel, is a sin
I lay with the wolves
Alone, it seems
I thought I was part of you

You loved me and I froze in time
Hungry for that flesh of mine
But I can't compete with the she wolf who has brought me to my knees
What do you see in those yellow eyes?
'Cause I'm falling to pieces

I'm falling to pieces
I'm falling to pieces
I'm falling to pieces
Falling to pieces

I'm falling to pieces (Falling to pieces)
Falling to pieces (Falling to pieces)
I'm falling to pieces (Falling to pieces)
Falling to pieces (Falling to pieces)

    My InterpretationThis song talks about man's innate ability to be a predator even in modern times. Wolves may date sheep but they will marry wolves. The yellow light in the she-wolf's eyes refers to her innate primitive animalistic instinct, (seen in the glowing of wolf eyes at midnight) which is evident in some modern women more than in others. Men will devour sheep ("bring them to their knees"), but they will respect and be enamored with fellow she-wolves, though they may be destroyed and have others around them be destroyed by them.


    Falling to pieces, while a metaphor for a spoke of the love triangle gone bad, is also exemplary of man's loss of balance with the world and nature. While we are attacking and cornering Nature up on a hill (hunters cornering the wolf), She puts up a fight and eventually makes us fall into pieces, through deforestation, global warming, animal attacks, devastation of the seas and others. Nature will always help nature, not man, hence the wounded cornered wolf will fight valiantly and use all of nature's resources to survive (digitized spikey landscape attacks on the hunters).

    Yellow eyes may also refer to man's disposition to be a coward, a vision of himself reflected in the the eyes of the woman that she allows to conquer. Yellow could stand for cowardice or low self-esteem. A she-wolf is not a challenge, quite the contrary, and is quite easy to get it in with. A sheep, i. e. regular woman who is not as aggressive as a wolf, may be quite a challenge to pursue and retain.

    The third wheel (Boticelli's Venus or the red-headed blue-eyed beauty transforming into a she-wolf) is the secret lover which preys upon men, does its damage and then moves over. Thus, she gives men the illusion (hunters chasing her) that they are chasing her, when in actuality the she-wolf is setting traps to entice then destroy her hunters (suiters = hunters = men) . The wounded wolf could exemplify a feigning at a loss of virginity (blood on the felt) in order to attract men (a she-wolf behaving cute, innocent, a virgin to entice
    and attract men's attention).

    The 1st womAn, the sheep, secretly wishes she were the hunters, yet realizes
    that she-wolves are impossible to catch, destroy without getting hurt (physically or emotionally). Thus she surrenders to falling into pieces (getting emotionally killed as others in the past have done) and follows the destiny of the hunters.
