Lyrics

We were born in a little home, right at the edge of the woods
Mama always said when she put us to bed, "Listen, honey please be good
Keep the doors locked tight, it's not safe at night"

We grew up with a fear of what lurked in the wilderness
When the sun went down on our tired little town the wolves would prey on us
I still hear the beat of their pounding feet

We learned to hide when the fires died and the shadows they grew long
Don't make a sound or you'll be found when the beasts come to sing their songs
I still hear their growls and their haunting howls

For all this suffering that we endured
I've spent so much of this life crippled by fear
When the ghosts that haunt the most, hold you in their grip
They've won, but we can overcome

And all the reasons why I was always too afraid to try
When love was on the line
For a heart that's been given life, I've been more dead than alive
Underneath the August Sky

For all this suffering that we endured
I've spent so much of this life crippled by fear
When the ghosts that haunt the most, hold you in their grip
They've won, but we can overcome

When the nights get long and the cold winds come, the summers come to an end
Keep the doors locked tight be watchful at night a wintering heart may hunt
But I still hear the sounds of their haunting howls
