Wolf at Your Door
by Meat Loaf



Two a.m. with the lost and the lonely
Walkin' past the kids, comin' back from the party
Smiles on their faces, you remember so well how it was
Nights in the back of that Buick that you got runnin'
Your baby by your side, told the whole world you're comin'


[Chorus]
Work so hard to do what is right
Believed in what you're doin',
But so many fights
Trusted too many, believed too much,
Workin' your life to the bone

There's a wolf at your door,
He wants your money, wants your soul
A wolf at your door, you give it all, he wants more
There's a wolf at your door,
He says he's playin' for keeps
Breathin' down your neck, boy
It's sure hard to sleep

With a wolf at your door

They'll take it away, when you're not lookin'
Look you in the eyes, tell you how good they're doin'
Smiles on their faces, are lies to keep you from knowin'
You're not guilty, you are the victim,
But you still pay for the crime
Don't look for trouble, it'll always find you in time

Work so hard to do what is right
Believed in what you're doin',
But so many fights
Trusted too many, relieved too much,
Workin' your life to the bone

There's a wolf at your door,
He says he's playin' for keeps
Breathin' down your neck, boy
It's sure hard to sleep

With a wolf at your door

It won't be broken, I'll fight 'til I drop,
Blood burnin' hot in my veins

But they won't be satisfied until they take everything

[Chorus]
