John Flynn – Two Wolves lyrics

A Native American grandfather
Found his grandson crying after school
And discovered from the sobbing child
That a playgound bully had been cruel

I wish that I could hurt him said the child
And when I get big that's what I'll do
That would make me sad said the grandfather
Then I'll know the dark wolf is taking you

[Chorus:]
There are two wolves
There are two wolves
And within each heart these two wolves fight
One is hatred
Rage and darkness
And the other wolf is love and light

The old man put his arms around the child
Said the thing you want is called revenge
But when you try to hurt the one who's hurt you
That's the momment you become like them

The old man said I know what you are feeling
Being human I have felt it too
The child looked into the ancient eyes then
Said gradfather tell me what to do

[Chorus:]
There are two wolves
There are two wolves
And within my heart these two wolves fight
One is hatred
Rage and darkness
And the other wolf is love and light

The Old Man said child do not fear this battle
Though each Wolf will make the other bleed
It is in your power to choose the victor
The Wolf that wins will be the one you feed

[Chorus:]
There are two wolves
There are two wolves
And within each heart these two wolves fight
One is hatred
Rage and darkness
And the other wolf is love and light

One is hatred rage and darkness
And the other wolf is love and light
