The Wolves Lyrics

Mandolin Orange
[Verse 1]
At my gate I'll always greet you
At my door you're welcome in
There can be no transgression
As a means to an end
On the wind the wolves are howling
Helping arms are closed in fear
Helping hands are clenched in anger
Broken hearts beyond repair

[Chorus]
Everything's so great can't get better, makes me wanna cry
That I'll go out howling at the moon tonight

[Verse 2]
There she stands, so tall and mighty
With her keen and watchful eye
And the heart of a mother
Holding out her guiding light
It's a hard road to travel
Solid rock from end to end
The sun, it rises on her brow
And sets upon [the?] great expanse

[Chorus]
Everything's so great can't get better, makes me wanna cry
That I'll go out howling at the moon tonight

[Verse 3]
There she stands, so tall and mighty
Her gaze facing the east
At her back our doors are closing
As we grin and bare our teeth
On the wind the wolves are howling
She cries [to?] draw near
Turn around, turn around my darling
Oh, the wolves are here

[Chorus]
Everything's so great can't get better, makes me wanna cry
That I'll go out howling at the moon tonight
Yeah I'll go out howling at the moon tonight
