“Howl,” Written and Performed by Robbie Banfitch

“HOWL”

I never thought him much a man,
Yet in his arms I lie again,
So should we find it going sour,
My dear, I’ll pluck another flower

Oh, and the petals go
One by one into the sun
Oh and the wind blows
Branches roar and the river flows

Lover, lover have you known
Kingdom come and the empty throne
Crown of lilies in your hands
Bed of thorns and the quickening sand

Oh, and the petals go
two by two into the moon
Oh, and the moon glows
Clouds divide and the wolves arise

Howl x2

If night should move your heavy soul
If death should prove the spirit whole
If skies and willows blend together
My dear, we’re in for stormy weather

Oh, and the petals go
Three by three into the sea
Oh, and the waves throw
A cold gray body up to thee

Howl x2

The flower fell
It wilted well
The sky is dim
The ocean swells
Wolves are lost amidst their swoon
Ghosts are howling from the moon
Lost my lips to distant fire
Their ashes float about the pyre

Oh, and the petals go
One by one into the sun
Oh, and the sun glows
Howl and howl at the burning rose
