One Direction – Wolves lyrics

[Intro: Harry]
I hear them calling for you
I hear them calling for you


[Verse 1: Liam & Louis]
I feel the waves getting started
It's a rush inside I can't control
Your eyes keep pulling me in

I know, I know, I know
Your friends all talking 'bout me
They say I got no chance at all
But your fire is burning deep
In my soul, my soul, my soul


[Pre-Chorus: Niall]
I ain't up for debating
Ain't enough for the taking
You got the world shaking


[Chorus: All]
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart like a bullet in the dark

One by one, I gotta take them down
We can run and hide, ain't going down without a fight

I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart, they come straight for your heart
I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling for you

Verse 2: [Liam & Louis]
I keep on holding tight now
Cause your body's telling me don't let go
We are gonna be starting up trouble
I know, I know, I know

It's bringing my demons out
More than ever now
Your beauty could start a war
As you walk in the door


[Pre-Chorus: Liam]
I ain't up for debating
Ain't enough for the taking
We got the world shaking


[Chorus: Harry]
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart like a bullet in the dark
One by one, I gotta take them down
We can run and hide, ain't going down without a fight
I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling for you
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart, they come straight for your heart
I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling for you


[Bridge: Niall & Liam]
I wish it wasn't true
But the whole world's tryna get a piece of you
And my heart keeps fighting in this battle of fools
Gotta make it through, gotta make it through


[Chorus: Harry]
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart like a bullet in the dark

One by one, I gotta take them down
We can run and hide, ain't going down without a fight

I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling for you
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart, they come straight for your heart

I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling for you

    I actually think this is about a couple against the world. All they want is to be together, but there is so much against them; her friends, maybe parents, society, her own doubtful feelings - these are the wolves. Together they are going to fight to be together and break down anything in their way.

    This song is about a girl in a club where lots of guys are trying to gain her attention. The singers are seen as the good guys because they want the girl not just to take her innocence. The main guy is doubted at first but then actually ends up with the girl. He has to fight off the other men or "wolves" to keep her. The main guy is not going to be ignored or forgotten and he is going to fight for her. Even after he won her heart everybody else is still trying to get her heart. He wishes he was the only one chasing after her but that is not true. He says she is so beautiful that she could start wars.
    Wolves are predators creatures who prey on girls so it makes sense that the guys in the song are compared to wolves because they only want to sleep with her because she is hot. The metaphor is continued because this is happening at night and most wolves hunt at night. The song was written by Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Will Champlin, Ian Franzino and Andrew Haas. Liam stated that this happened to him in clubs and that it annoys him. And that he fights them like wolves.

    I think this song is about a guy and a girl who are so happy together until the other guys or the "wolves" come out and try to sniff the girl around like she's a piece of meat and try to flirt with her, but her boyfriend doesn't allow it so he confronts the "wolves" and fight them and telling them to stay away from her and paws off. He's protecting her from other guys flirting with her. He's the only one that can love her.
