This song is by The Accidental and appears on the album There Were Wolves (2008).

There were wolves
Lying in the dark
As she was raining sparks
Into the room like that
She was dancing in a neon cave
With a tilted smile and a lover's laugh
Embossed upon her in the darkness
Like a light at the edge of night beside her

And as the drugs get in their heads
They growl and circle at the edge beside her
There are wolves lying in the dark
And so she rises up like a butterfly
She's still spinning in a scarlet dress
And though the music stops and though the echoes die
She carries unknown things inside her
Like old volumes they will never read without her
And as the moves get in their heads
They know that they don't know something without her

There were wolves

There are wolves hiding in the woods
And they can smell the blood on the summer air
And they run beneath a million stars
And in a million taxis and they're going where
They drink their beer from plastic glasses
Till they find the words to make the first move
And when the fear dissolves itself
They find the means to execute the first move

There were wolves
