The wolves came round to my house today
You saw them and yet you had nothing to say
You didn't even try to make them go away
It looks to me as though they're here to stay.
The wolves came round again this afternoon
Should I throw back my head and then howl at the moon?
You said nothing about them returning so soon
To their presence you seem to be almost immune.
The wolves came into our room tonight
They came up to me and they started to bite
They took pieces of me and you didn't even fight
You told me you loved me and just held me tight.
So we both went away made it all seem unreal
Till those memories of wolves became something surreal
Took me from here so I could start to heal
Without ever asking me how I might feel.
You told me you loved me again and again
It led me to think that things wouldn't be the same
That you'd keep me safe and you'd share all my pain
So I tried to believe you and I tried not to blame.
We came home with my wounds still fresh from the attack
So I go to our room and I start to unpack.
There's a sound as the front door is opened a crack
And I turn round to see that the wolves have come back.
You're standing right there and you're looking at me
Please tell me exactly what is it you see?
I think you see someone I can no longer be.
The wolves have returned and they're coming for me
