Howl Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
Screaming in the dark, I howl when we're apart
Drag my teeth across your chest to taste your beating heart
Verse 2
My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in
You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to howl
My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in
You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to
Verse 3
Howl, howl
Howl, howl
Verse 4
Now there's no holding back, I'm making an attack
My blood is singing with your voice, I want to pour it out
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallow'ed ground
Verse 5
Like some child possessed, the beast howls in my veins
I want to find you, tear out all of your tenderness
Verse 6
And howl, howl
Howl, howl
Verse 7
Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers
Starts so soft and sweet and turns them to hunters
Hunters, hunters, hunters
Hunters, hunters, hunters
Verse 8
The fabric of your flesh, pure as a wedding dress
Until I wrap myself inside your arms I cannot rest
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground
Verse 9
And howl
Verse 10
Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers
Starts so soft and sweet and turns them to hunters
Verse 11
A man who's pure of heart and says his prayers by night
May still become a wolf when the autumn moon is bright
Verse 12
If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallow'ed ground
