lyrics

When i am old
When i'm old and grey
Im gunna give all my money away
When im too tired to dream
Ill make dreams come true
For some young magicians
Just like me and just like you

When i fall apart
May the music heal my heart
When my hearing fades
Treasure this guitar i played
Cause that's how i can feel ok
That's how i will be making music in my grave

I was young once just like you
Every seed i planted grew
Nourished on the sole desire
To set the freezing cold on fire
You'll be old some day like me
Wisdom will replace your dreams
No more need for seeds to sow
Just memories to hold onto
'Cause memories are what we make
Before our minds and bodies break
Ill give you all that you can take
To help to give your music shape
Cause i have dollars and you have cents
I have scars where you have innocence
It hurts you just to make the rent
So you can keep those dollars
Dollars don't make sense

Ill put my faith in the young magician
The one who shares this strange religion
Ill put my faith in the young magician
The one to carry this tradition

Put the sounds behind the words &
We could heal the universe
We could heal the universe
Just put the sounds behind the words
Put the sounds behind the words &
We could heal the universe
We could heal the universe
Just put the sounds behind the words

about

Safer with the Wolves Sydney, Australia

Sydney five-piece Safer with the Wolves howl to things beautiful and things lost in the city, melancholy harmonies riding over vicious guitars, lullabies with teeth pulled tight by depth of feeling & the driving heartbeat of someone running.
SWTW are excited to announce their first album pre-release “The Slaughter” which they hope will pull you in and remind you…maybe you are Safer with the Wolves
