First Aid Kit – Wolf lyrics

Wolf-mother, where you been?
You look so worn, so thin
You're a taker, devils-maker
Let me hear you sing, hey-ya hey-ya

Wolf-father, at the door
You don't smile anymore
You're a drifter, shape-shifter
Let me see you run, hey-ya hey-ya

Holy light over the night
Oh, keep the spirit strong
Watch it grow, child of war
Oh, keep holdin' on

When I run through the deep dark forest long
After this begun
Where the sun would set,
The trees were dead,
And the rivers were none.
And I hope for a trace
To lead me back home from this place
But there was no sound there was only me, and my disgrace

(Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey) x2

Wolf-mother, where you been?
You look so worn, so thin
You're a taker, devils-maker
Let me hear you sing, hey-ya hey-ya

Wolf-father, at the door
You don't smile anymore
You're a drifter, shape-shifter
Let me see you run, hey-ya hey-ya

Wayward winds, a voice that sings
Of a forgotten land
See it fall, child of war
Oh, lend a mending hand

When I run through the deep dark forest long
After this begun
Where the sun would set,
The trees were dead,
And the rivers were none.
And I hope for a trace
To lead me back home from this place
But there was no sound there was only me, and my disgrace

(Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey) x2

    This ballad was extracted from hemliga bok I den stora mörka skogen (the secret book of the great dark forest), a 359 parchment pages rare volume presently displayed in the nordic museum in djurgården and believed to date back from the mid 16th century. According to the swedish mythology, several wolves entered into an agreement with the underground creature vittra to seduce humans into venturing through the great forest at night by singing strange songs. The few human who followed the wolves into the darkness got lost in vast expanse of swamps where they had to confront their own past, and for some of them, their disgrace, while vittra, the underground creature, slowly crawled out to meet each of them.
