Mewithoutyou - Wolf Am I! (And Shadow) lyrics

rate me

It's the smell of hot summertime trash,<br />

It's the city noise of a busy street<br />

It's a train derailed and two car head on freeway crash<br />

Each time we meet<br />

"and if it comes as some sort of surprise," she said<br />

"that I seem so composed,<br />

I've kept this moment closer to my eyes," she said,<br />

"than the glasses resting on the edge of my nose."<br />

<br />

Shadow am I!<br />

A question of a person, no said reply<br />

Wolf am I!<br />

And shadow cast on the sheep as I pass by<br />

Shadow am I, or like a<br />

Wearing-black-socks-and-white-woolen-locks<br />

Wolf am I, and shadow.<br />

<br />

She was grace and green as a stem,<br />

But I walk heavy on delicate ground<br />

<br />

((( I go showing off again,self impressed by how well I can put myself down!!<br />

And then go again, to the next further removed level<br />

Of that same exact feigned humility!!!)))<br />

<br />

[this for me goes on and on to the point of nausea]<br />

<br />

Shadow am I!<br />

Like suspicion that's never confirmed<br />

But it's never denied<br />

Wolf am I!<br />

<br />

(((no, "shadow" I think is better,<br />

As I'm not so much something as the absence of something)))<br />

<br />

So SHADOW AM I!<br />

The material world seems to me like a newspaper headline-<br />

It explicitly demands your attention<br />

And it may even contain some truth<br />

And what's really going on here?<br />

<br />

One day the water's gonna wash it away<br />

And on that day, nothing clever to say.
