a-ha - Cry Wolf

Cry Wolf
Headlines and Deadlines

"Night I left the city,
I dreamt of a wolf..."

He came from where the winds are cold
And truth is seen through keyholes
...strange longings never sleep
Oh now he s come where no hearts beat

Cry wolf
Time to worry
Cry wolf
Time to worry now

You can start, but you cannot stop
You give in, but you can t give up
You can tell all your desperate jokes
To a world that puts your
Love on hold

*- Cry wolf
Time to worry
Cry wolf
Time to worry now

*- repeat

...the sunken-in eyes
And the pain in his cries
A shape in the dark...

*- repeat x4
