Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

I used to have no wolves around me.
I was too free, if that's possible to be.
No safety is what I mean,
No solid foundation to keep me,
But the sun's peeping out of the sky
Where it used to be only grey.
The wolf is getting married,
And he'll never cry again.
Your smile makes me smile,
Your laugh makes me laugh,
Your joy gives me joy,
Your hope gives me hope,
And the sun's peeping out of the sky
Where it used to be only grey.
The wolf is getting married,
And he'll never cry again,
He'll never cry again.
Even when something terrible is happening,
You laugh and that's the thing I love about you.
Even when something terrible is happening,
You laugh and that's the thing I love about you most, yeah.
Your smile (ah ah ah ah) makes me smile (ah ah ah ah),
Your hope (ah ah ah ah) gives me hope (ah ah ah ah),
And the sun's peeping out of the sky
Where it used to be only grey.
The wolf is getting married,
And he'll never cry again.
