Searchiní in the darkness Eyes pierce the night Calling for her young one As she walks towards the light Itís the night of the wolf Hear the cry of the wolf Streets paved with cold Night gives out a warning Thereís thunder in her heart And mother wolf is calling Searchiní in the shadows For the one she must save She cries out a prayer Like a song from beyond the grave The bells will toll No one will sleep tonight While she alone will Walk the streets tonight Sun begins to rise All the streets washed with rain Still hear her cries Eyes burnt with pain Returning to the twilight Betrayed by the night Screaming for her young one As she walks towards the light
