wolves at night lyrics – manchester orchestra

i could of sworn that i saw you knee bent on the bedside,
arms stretched like a kite that time will eventually grow.
i’m so sure of it
and i’ve got a reason, too long, for songs
that tells why your legs and arms are actually able.

cause i confide in wolves at night
have you seen my baby girl, she’s lonely.

i’ve got to crucify myself if i am gonna believe you
i’ve got to promise that i’ll finish all the things i said i’d do to begin with too
i’ve got to make my bed if i am gonna lay with you
cause a disaster’s a disaster no matter what christian language you drag it through

cause i confide in wolves at night
well have you seen my baby girl, she’s lonely, so lonely
cause i confide in wolves at night
i’m like a virgin losing a child, so lonely, so lonely

i swear i did what i could for your rights,
you swear you did what you could for my eyes
and i’ll try nothing, try something, try anything
i swear i did what i could for your rights,
you swear you did what you could for my eyes
and i’ll try something, for nothing, for something.
something
i swear i did what i could for your rights,
you swear you did what you could for my eyes
and i’ll try something, try nothing, try anything.
