Wolfcry
Gregory Porter Lyrics


The night has fallen
And you have soaked your see-through silken gown with tears
Your love was all in
And he mistook your "Come stay" call for "Come quick dear"
You need me near
You need me near

After I have saved you
And gathered all the pieces of your heart
That's when it starts
Then you gain your confidence
And leave your innocence and vulnerability
With me

After I have saved you
And gathered all the pieces of your heart
That's when it starts
Then you gain your confidence
And leave your innocence and vulnerability
With me

Your tears were falling
And I came quick to comfort all you solemn fears
When you have fallen
I'm always there to pick you up
And say come here dear
I need you near
I need you near

After I have saved you
And gathered all the pieces of your heart
That's when it starts
You gain your confidence
And leave your innocence and vulnerability
With me

After I have saved you
And gathered all the pieces of your heart
That's when it starts
You gain your confidence
And leave your innocence and vulnerability
With me
You leave it all with me

Wolfcry"

The night has fallen
You have soaked your see-through silken gown with tears
Your love was all in
And he mistook your come stay call for come quick dear
You need me near
You need me near
After I have saved you
And gathered all the pieces of your heart
That's when it starts
Then you gained your confidence
And leave your innocence
And vulnerability with me

After I have saved you
And gathered all the pieces of your heart
That's when it starts
Then you gained your confidence
And leave your innocence
And vulnerability with me

Your tears were fallin'
And I came quick to comfort all your solemn fear
When you have fallen
I'm always there to pick you up and say come here dear
I need you near
I need you near

After I have saved you
And gathered all the pieces of your heart
That's when it starts
You gained your confidence
And leave your innocence
And vulnerability with me

After I have saved you
And gathered all the pieces of your heart
That's when it starts
You gained your confidence
And leave your innocence
And vulnerability with me
You leave it all with me

The first time I heard this song I sat there motionless.  I turned the volume up and played it again.  I cried so hard and loud that I had to play it again.  To this day I still can't listen without my heart strings pulling.  I love Gregory's voice on ALL his songs but this one with Chip solely providing the music.  So strong.

I was listening to Jazz on YouTube at work. Then YouTube decided to suggest WolfCry. It got into my feels I stopped working immediately, cancelled my Friday night plans, went home and went on a Gregory Porter binge listening. This song made me go back to learning piano. I had to learn how to play this tune.

I watched an interview he did at a BBC event in which he said that many of his songs are secretly prayers, and reflections of his faith. "Wolfcry" could certainly be one of those secret prayers. How many of us have wanted God near to save us "and gather all the pieces of your heart". It's hard to "leave your innocence and vulnerability" behind, but Gregory makes the case for doing so quite beautifully. I could so easily hear my church's choir singing this song on a bright Sunday morning.
