Artist Appreciation: Of Monsters and Men – #BEDS Day 10

The text below features the lyrics of my new favorite song by Of Monsters and Men called “Wolves Without Teeth” and because I have yet to compile a playlist that fits the theme of this song, appreciate its lyrics with me.

Open my chest and colour my spine
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all
Swallow my breath and take what is mine
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all

I’ll be the blood if you’ll be the bones
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all
So lift up my body and lose all control
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all

You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You’re sailing from another world
Sinking in my sea
You’re feeding on my energy
I’m letting go of it
She wants it

And I run from wolves
Breathing heavily at my feet
And I run from wolves
Tearing into me without teeth

I can see through you
We are the same
It’s perfectly strange
You run in my veins
How can I keep you inside my lungs
I breathe what is yours
You breathe what is mine

You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You’re sailing from another world
Sinking in my sea
Oh you’re feeding on my energy
I’m letting go of it
He wants it

And I run from wolves
Breathing heavily at my feet
And I run from wolves
Tearing into me without teeth

And you can follow
You can follow me

You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You’re sailing from another world
Sinking in my sea
Oh you’re feeding on my energy
I’m letting go of it
She wants it

And I run from wolves
Breathing heavily at my feet
And I run from wolves
Tearing into me without teeth
And you can follow
You can follow me
