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

    This song is about a girl who wanted to life forever. She gives her "treasure" to a boy for immortality. Now she is 90 and realizes what a curse it is to look 19 when she is 90. She never fully got to live, because she had to act like a teenager forever. And because she is immortal that means she will forever look 19. Because of her choice years ago, she never will get to fully experience life, like turning 20, 30, and 40. She is finally notices what she missed. She is now just wanting to die. Shes getting tired of living, and just wishes she could die. But because of her curse she can't. This song is pretty much saying careful what you wish for. Like all of Alec's songs it has a meaning. This is why I love Alec's songs.

    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'.

    I think the meaning is that you just gotta be greatful for what you have and just live.....the meaning is not about the girl, she is just an example of life some thing like karma, live with the counsicuence. I dont think its about not doing stuff like adultery or about love and moments of the life you have its simple as, you cant have everything the world wont and never give you anything even if you ask, and not do anything nothing good will happen like the saying "never make a deal with the devil"

    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.

    I think that the lyrics are saying that she wanted to have someone who would love her forever, but he wasn't what she wanted "the wolf wore the sheep as a perfect disguise." So then she realized that she made a wrong choice, and now she was cursed. btw, I'm really sorry that this wasn't that good of a response, I'm pretty young.

    umm i think this song is about a girl believing love is forever or thats what the boy she met told her it so she gives her virginity because she thought it would last forever and now they are kinda cursed with a baby so. now she is reliving that mistake she made with an guy that she thought it would last forever with now she's 90 and is still living this traumatizing past. and it said he promised forever she never knew the price.. of an broken heart i'm not sure if that's what it meant or the price you pay for giving your virginity up to a guy who said you would get married have kids and live this life style that you want so then she finds out he's doing this with other people not only you and others girl are trapped in this lie of a promised life style on the outside he is this guy who everyone loves and everyone's dream man and then on the inside he is this hideous creature! a scumbag! cheater! someone who you thought deserved that one chance at love he isn't the sheep you thought he was he was just a liar a faker so he would get what he wanted.....thIs is nothing personal i swear LOLOL

    Ok. Since you guys seem to have weird answers, I gotta make one that is actually good. I think the song is about a vampire. Maybe. I don't really know what her "treasure" is. Maybe you are right with it being her virginity, but I don't think we'll ever truly know. I am a very big fan of Alec Benjamin and I love his songs because they give me hope and I love the stories he tells with them. anyways, let me explain why I think it's about a vampire. She looks 19 at 90. think about it. nobody looks 19 at 90 except vampires. people may age well, but they don't look THAT young. And when they talk about the look in her eyes, I almost feel as though she was taking advantage of him, but that doesn't make sense. And after that is how the "wicked little boy who tried to steal her treasure for the bitter pleasure". I still believe that she is now a vampire and they have to be together for some reason. don't ask me how or why, it's just how my brain works. Now I'm gonna fix all of your answers. the person who posted on November 25th this year, AGHGHGHGH. I am screaming in agony. you spelled "counsicuence" wrong. it's consequence. something is one word. the "its" are supposed to be "it's" and learn your punctuation. for the person who posted on the 2nd of December... "she is finally notices" wtf? "she is finally"? there is no IS. now for the person who posted on the 3rd of October in 2019, saying "don't", y'know without punctuation as it is here, but then saying stuff like "defy science and time", it makes me think you have a split personality. For you to be smart enough to know what "defy" is, but don't know what punctuation is. I learned that in 3rd grade. Everybody else had ok words and everything, so you're good. sorry if you hate me for this, but I have a pet peeve and I have to tell you you're wrong. it get's me into a lot of fights, but it's me so love it or leave it.
