I was happy to hear from you
You said I'm like ice, I endure the advice
Unable to open, but crying inside

But there are wolves, they won't let me fall in love, prowling my heart

You were chasing shadows
I'm hidden inside the walls of a smile
I'd like to slice the walls of a smile
Trust me I tried

But there are wolves, they won't let me fall in love, prowling my heart

Clutching at shadows
Clutching at the moon
Clutching at starlight
The distance is beautiful
