Lyrics

You howled like a wolf
You howled like a child
You howled like a ghost from the grave
I get to your closet door,
you where in there on the floor
I said open up and you said go away!
And you howled, and you howled
You howled on my lung
I pretended not to hear you
I didn't know what was wrong!
When the next day came, well,
you were on your way
You didn't take much,
just a couple of things
And you didn't leave a note,
but I knew you had to go
You had to go and try to find anything.
I just wish and I hope you'll be OK
I just wish and I hope you'll be OK
And I knew that you'll be back here again one day.
I got a call from the hospital
They said you broke your arm popping off a tree
You hadn't made it very far before you ran into bad luck
So I bought a car, I came and picked you up
I brought you home, I brought you home
With bruises on your face, the cast on your arm
I said, let me explain, I was under a tree
It was. the wrong way so I jumped off
And I said, that's insane,
you could have died out there that day
Why would you just wait until it stopped.
And you howled, and you howled
Howled in that...
You said what could I do,
I was on the wrong trail
So you made it to your feet,
You walked on those barren trees
You followed... down the road
And the first car that came by,
they saw you and they stopped
It was a rabbit hunter and...
And they dropped you off outside the hospital
They gave you pills for the pain,
they put a cast for your arm
But the howl never stops.
Because that wasn't what was wrong
No, that wasn't what was wrong
No, that wasn't what was wrong
No, that wasn't what was wrong
