There Was Only Me & My Disgrace


        I think my love affair with the idea of werewolves and shape shifters stems mostly from envy. A yearning to escape the bonds of a society I don’t fully understand and can never seem to find my place in, a shimmering want stemming from an all-consuming  if only.

       If only I could shed my skin and disappear into the wilds with only my baser instincts and the steady beat of my heart.

       If only I could run far and fast enough to lose my thoughts in the wind.

       If only I could learn what it is to be free.

Wolf

Wolf mother, where you been?
You look so worn, so thin
You’re a taker, devil’s maker
Let me hear you sing, hey ya hey yaWolf father, at the door
You don’t smile anymore
You’re a drifter, shapeshifter
Let me see you run, hey ya hey yaHoly light, oh, burn the night, oh keep the spirits strong
Watch it grow, child of wolf
Keep holdin’ on

When I run through the deep dark forest long after this begun
Where the sun would set, 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, Hey
Hey, Hey-Hey, Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey-Hey, Hey, Ya.

Wolf mother, where you been?
You look so worn, so thin
You’re a taken, devil’s maker
Let me hear you say, hey ya hey ya

Wolf father, at the door
You don’t smile anymore
You’re a drifter, shapeshifter
Let me see you run, hey ya hey ya

Wayward winds, the voice that sings of a forgotten land
See it fall, child of wolf
Lend a mending hand

When I run through the deep dark forest long after this begun
Where the sun would set, 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, Hey
Hey, Hey-Hey, Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey-Hey, Hey, Ya.
