of all the animals i might like to be tonight,
i will choose the wolf
who strays from the pack
out on my own i've gotten good at
and if the moon you're crying to
is not also out my window
this is a story after all
but now as i look, there it is in my view
so i guess ill cry too,
for me and for you

i will howl it up
howl it up
howl it up
howl it up

and then
when howling is through
i will choose another animal
to compare myself to
i am like the lion
i have wanted to be
my mane is wild
does that not mean i am free?
and if the plains yield me no gain
i will walk on then in love with something just the same
and until my mate rises up from grasses
i will not expect it to happen
i will not wait
roar it up
roar it up
roar it up

all of the trees i would climb
all the fields i would walk
will give me sure footing, will welcome me as their fauna
and i will know the glory of weather (or whether?)
how can a story be better than this?
better than this?

if all the animals
could come talk to me
in secrecy please
and teach me the lessons
you've all had to learn
in attempts to help me in this lonely world

and i know that i,
am just one tiny human
i am just trying to do things
with my warm blood
but that's not enough
i don't know how to use it
where is my purpose?
where is my love?

howl it up
roar it up
cry it up
cry it up
weep it up
live it up
