Alec Benjamin – The Wolf And The Sheep lyrics
[Verse 1]
Everybody has to get older
Even Jenny
She's just nineteen, young and naive
She wants to find a way to be endless
Fight the science, and defiance, and be timeless

[Pre-Chorus]
Silly little girl who tried to live forever, live forever
Gave away her soul to buy a bit of pleasure, the bitter pleasure
Oh wicked little boy who tried to steal her treasure, for the bitter pleasure
Now their cursed forever
Cursed together

[Chorus]
And if you could see
The look in her eyes
The wolf wore the sheep
As a perfect disguise
And she can't believe
That she fell for his lies
He promised forever
But she never knew the price
He promised forever
But she never knew the price
He promised forever
But she never knew the price

[Verse 2]
And as she got a little bit older
Look at Jenny
Now she's ninety
She looks nineteen
And all she know to do is surviving
Now she's crying
'Cause she's not dying
That's the price when

[Pre-Chorus]
Silly little girl who tried to live forever, live forever
Gave away her soul to buy a bit of pleasure, the bitter pleasure
Oh wicked little boy who tried to steal her treasure, for the bitter pleasure
Now their cursed forever
Cursed together


[Chorus]
And if you could see
The look in her eyes
The wolf wore the sheep
As a perfect disguise
And she can't believe
That she fell for his lies
He promised forever
But she never knew the price
He promised forever
But she never knew the price
He promised forever
But she never knew the price

[Pre-Chorus]
Silly little girl who tried to live forever, to live forever
Gave away her soul to buy a bit of pleasure, oh the bitter pleasure
Oh wicked little boy who tried to steal her treasure, for the bitter pleasure
Now their cursed forever
Cursed together

[Chorus]
And if you could see
The look in her eyes
The wolf wore the sheep
As a perfect disguise
And she can't believe
That she fell for his lies
He promised forever
But she never knew the price
He promised forever
But she never knew the price
He promised forever
But she never knew the price

    The song is about a girl who don't want to die and want to be immortal, she tries to defy science and time. She sells her virginity for immortality, the boy she sells her virginity is called a wolf disguised as sheep, while the girl is a sheep. But now the two of them are cursed with a baby and hence cursed together. Now, Jenny is 90 but still looks 19 and is immortal for life which is a bitter pleasure.

    I think the girl here wanted to believe that love is endless, something that exists past time. However, such a love doesn't exist. The boy here knew about her perception of love being endless, and tried to give her what she wanted: that he would be there forever for her. She believed him and married him/at least stayed with him (even until she reaches 90). But tragically, only at 90 does she realize (and nowhere before that, 'but she never knew the price') that her perception of love here was keeping her from living a full life - by believing that love was permanent, she could only 'survive' and not 'live'.

    She wanted to feel immortal, but now she is cursed together with the wolf (the boy that stole her treasure) and a baby, she is now older but still looks beutifull, but is still cursed. She never lived her life the way she wanted to live it. It is almost like a message for the young not to do adult things.
