WOLF

wolf is a song that tells a story about a place, that we call the middle ground. a place, that is very difficult to stick close to, especially in times of extremes, though all the more important to hold on to. that song came into being about a year ago. back then it carried mostly personal value. when i sing it today it's more like a reminder of that place, that is worth traveling to, in case we forget. the recording isn't the best, but the only one we have :) the lyrics you find below.

 

i look at the moon and its glow 
and i wonder, how long does your river flow
i see your breath stroking fallen snow 
and i wonder, where do all your currents go

and i walk between fire and ice
and i ask you will you make your same mistakes twice?

i look up at the night sky's surrender 
and i wonder, why can't i remember
you smile and you say it's a game of pitch and toss 
mind your step while you walk
you look back and it's your loss

and i walk between fire and ice 
and i ask you will you make your same mistakes twice?

i tiptoe and i freeze 
what is it that you seek?
your sharp eyes cut through the ice
but your tenderness shines bright
you ask me if i'm free 
and i say, you are the wolf that i long to be

and we walk between fire and ice
and i ask you, will you make your same mistakes twice?
