Top 20 Songs 2014: Lily and Madeleine - The Wolf is Free

The Wolf is Free is off L&M newest album, entitled Fumes. I really fell in love with this song when they released the music video. The song is so perfectly represented in the images - its' mysterious sounds, its' simple lines, its' angelic harmonies all combine to create a wonderful tune. 
Simply beautiful...

Some crippling dream
I know whose fault it is, I know it isn’t me.
The wolf is free.
I wanna chase him down and drown him in the sea.

The innocent flock like sheep
Their efforts are in vain, the wolf is back again
I hope he comes for me
I’m not out-running him and I’m not gonna scream.

I’m gonna follow him
I know his name,
I know his name.

The wolf is free
His eyes are narrowing, it is a scary thing.
And some fears run deep
There is a change in him, there is a change in me.

I’ll put you to sleep.
My fingers through your hair, into your skin, I’ll be,
Ten fingernails deep,
And I won’t let you go, you will not bury me.
