Wolf Like Me
TV on the Radio Lyrics


Say, say, my playmate
Won't you lay hands on me
Mirror my malady
Transfer my tragedy?

Got a curse I cannot lift
Shines when the sunset shifts
When the moon is round and full
Gotta bust that box, gotta gut that fish
My mind's aflame

We could jet in a stolen car
But I bet we wouldn't get too far
Before the transformation takes
And blood lust tanks and
Crave gets slaked

My mind has changed
My body's frame, but, God, I like it
My heart's aflame
My body's strained, but, God, I like it

My mind has changed
My body's frame, but, God, I like it
My heart's aflame
My body's strained, but, God, I like it

Charge me your day rate
I'll turn you out in kind
When the moon is round and full
Gonna teach you tricks that'll blow your mind
Mongrel mind
Baby doll, I recognize
You're a hideous thing inside
If ever there were a lucky kind, it's
You, you, you, you

I know it's strange another way to get to know you
You'll never know unless we go so let me show you
I know it's strange another way to get to know you
We've got till noon, here comes the moon
So let it show you
Show you now

Dream me, oh dreamer
Down to the floor
Open my hands and let them
Weave onto yours

Feel me, completer
Down to my core
Open my heart and let it
Bleed onto yours

Feeding on fever
Down all fours
Show you what all that
Howl is for

Hey, hey, my playmate
Let me lay waste to thee
Burned down their hanging trees
It's hot here, hot here, hot here, hot here

Got a curse we cannot lift
Shines when the sunshine shifts
There's a curse comes with a kiss
The bite that binds the gift that gives

Now that we got gone for good
Writhing under your riding hood
Tell your gra'ma and your mama too
It's true, true, true, true
We're howling forever, oh, oh
We're howling forever, oh, oh
We're howling forever, oh, oh
We're howling forever, oh, oh
We're howling forever, oh, oh

Say, say my playmate
Won't you lay hands on me?
Mirror, my melody
Transfer my tragedy

Got a curse, I cannot lift
Shines when the sunset shifts
When the moon is round and full
Gotta bust that box, gotta gut that fish

We could jet in a stolen car
But I bet we wouldn't get too far
Before the transformation takes
And blood lust tanks and crave gets slaked

My mind has changed
My body's frame but God I like it
My hearts aflame
My body's strained but God I like it

My mind has changed
My body's frame but God I like it
My hearts aflame
My body's strained but God I like it

I had an old friend that danced her heart out to this song at a bar about a month before she died. I didn't know what song it was but i was in love with it but couldn't find it anywhere and just now discovered who it was. It was the last time I saw her and it's always going to be my favorite memory of her. r.i.p shannon!

I still vividly remember a girl I went to law school with dancing to this at a bar in New Orleans. From 3:04 mark on in this video It was just magical.

Rest in Peace Shannon, she seemed like a beautiful, free soul, and what a wonderful memory you have of her 🙏

Dance your heart out while your here, you never know when your time is up

Whenever I play this song, I turn it up LOUD and feel it run through me

I don't listen to it in the car anymore because I have run over a skunk and rear-ended someone to it. 😅
