lyrics

I was so mad I couldn’t conceal it
I was in pain and you could not heal it
You are the tear I cannot wipe away
You are the twin born a different day
You are the binding of the books I’ve read
You are the lamp burning near our bed
I am the nights when you cannot sleep
I widen the gap of our lover’s leap

I opened my mouth and the Wolf came out
I opened my mouth and the Wolf came out
She ate the doors, the floors and the walls came down
I opened my mouth and the Wolf came out

You tried to hide, but I found you
My teeth were sharp, my arms were around you
You are the room where I keep my things
You are the hand where I wear my rings
I was the Lost in the lost and found
I haunted the ghost in the ghost town
You are the words that I left unsaid
You were the want I knew I wanted

I opened my mouth and the Wolf came out
I opened my mouth and the Wolf came out
She ate the doors, the floors and the walls came down
I opened my mouth and the Wolf came out
