You left me amid a pack of wolves,
snarling, baring their teeth...
closing in on me.
I know they'll tear me apart.
As the night grows darker, colder,
I hear their menacing howls,
and I realize I'm all alone.
I know tonight's my last night.
I search all around for you,
call to you for help,
all the while knowing you won't come.
I know you can't.
But, I fight back
I fight the wolves with all I've got,
and I emerged the winner.
Now, I know I'll live another night.
