Wolves

you got a peaceful mind
and that makes me glad
something I can’t afford
it’s something I’ve never had

is this all I’m here for?
is this all I’m here for?
can’t be all I’m here for
keeping the wolves from the door

you got a tender heart
and that’s a good way to be
conversation with you is like a stone
skipping over a calm sunset sea

is that all I’m here for?
is it all I’m here for?
can’t be all I’m here for
keeping the wolves from the door

poor poor pitiful me
got nowhere to hide
how can I ever be sure
that’s the wind howlin’ outside?

and I love you just as much
as I ever did
but I’m a fly in a bottle
I’ve got my own fingers on the lid

is it all I’m here for?
is this all I’m here for?
can’t be all I’m here for
keeping the wolves from the door

– electric slide guitar solo

poor poor pitiful me
got nowhere to hide
how can I ever be sure
that’s the wind howlin’ outside?

and I love you just as much
as I ever did
but I’m a fly in a bottle
got my own fingers on the lid

is it all I’m here for?
can’t be all I’m here for
is this all I’m here for?
keeping the wolves from the door

– vocalise, gentle howls
