Lyrics

Werewolf
Copyright 2006 by Strahan/Brown

Is my imagination running wild
Like darkness in the mind of a child?
Is that a shadow in the corner of the room
Or a phantom created by the moon?

I think that I don?t know you anymore
You?ve changed; you?re not the one I knew before
There?s something hiding in your hungry eyes
A secret that you?ve covered up with lies

CHORUS:
You say, we?ve been through this before
I say, I can?t take it anymore
You?re like a werewolf changing with the moon
A gypsy child dancing to her tune

Light of silver
Bring me to you
Shining Luna
Sing ru-garu

Is my imagination running wild
Like darkness in the mind of a child?
Is that a shadow in the corner of the room
Or a phantom created by the moon?

Caught between the darkness and the light
Are things that live only in the night
You can?t explain it away
The tracks you?ve left are still there by day

CHORUS (repeat)
