[This is a song: CLICK HERE TO LISTEN]
I went to the evergreen
I asked him why he looked so lonely
He said The curse is weighing heavy on me.
When I saw his boughs again
They were gray as western skies over Washington
And I could hear the wind blow through him.
[the wind howls]
So I went to the beaver’s dam
He was trying to fill the gap between the shores
But every time he patched a leak, there were three more.
And so I began to tease
But then he looked at me and I could see he was smart
He said You’ve got more holes in your heart.
[the teaser howls]
I went to the wolf pack
They tore the clothes right off my back, oh no.
They said You run with us, you’re gonna pay it through the nose
And when the snow is on the ground
We gotta eat our friends and that’s just the way it goes
And we only cry when the moon glows.
[the wolf howls and howls]
I was lost in the pourin’ rain
I was runnin’ with fur and fangs
But I knew
If I could not find my way home soon…
I would die like an evergreen, under the silver moon.
But then I met a friendly dove
He said Grace is not a place you can fall from.
And we’ve all done terrible things just to feel loved.
He said There are no strangers here
And we’ve all got broken teeth from our wolf years
You can lay your cards face up without fear.
I howl and howl Hallelujah
