Background

'Wolves' is a song about fighting back and taking power back from people who hurt you.

On Twitter, Emma has said:

"It is a song I wrote about a very personal situation I went through last year, and my decision to stand my ground and say 'You want to try and hurt me? Here I am.'"[1]

She elaborated further on this, stating:

"There are a lot of things that people like to make everybody else’s business. These days I’m a more private person. That said, my music has always been, and will continue to be how I show you my world."[2]

Lyrics

Stone cold with your heart of gold
Asking me to come out and play
Draw me out into open plains
I'm not a hunter but I'm nobody's prey

Light on your feet you come baring teeth
Picturing my skin down to bone
But I will fight for what's rightfully mine
I see a shadow and I draw my bow

You run in circles
I'm surrounded by the enemy
You think you've done it
But you'll never get the best of me
And all the vultures
Waiting for the wolves to finish me off
Well you can have your pound of flesh when he's done with it

Oh oh oh oh
I'm sick of running
Oh oh oh
The wolves are always gunning for me
My arms are open
Right here I stand
You said you want me gone
So here I am

Fighting shy with a careful eye
Puncturing my flesh down to bone
And yet I stand never playing my hand
I bide my time before I draw my bow

You run in circles
I'm surrounded by the enemy
You think you've done it
But you'll never get the best of me
And all the vultures
Waiting for the wolves to finish me off
Well you can have your pound of flesh when he's done with it

Oh oh oh oh
I'm sick of running
Oh oh oh
The wolves are always gunning for me
My arms are open
Right here I stand
You said you want me gone
So here I am

I'm surrounded by the enemy
But you'll never get the best of me
Waiting for the wolves to finish me off
Flesh when he's done with it

Oh oh oh oh
I'm sick of running
Oh oh oh
The wolves are always gunning for me
My arms are open
Right here I stand
You said you want me gone
So here I am

Oh oh oh oh
I'm sick of running
Oh oh oh
The wolves are always gunning for me
My arms are open
Right here I stand
You said you want me gone
So here I am [3]
