Animal Fear - Marika Hackman

[Verse 1]
I've been weeping silent like a wound
Would you stitch me up
Or let the blood soak through?
Watching my world turn from white to maroon

[Pre Chorus]
Ignore my claws
Look into my eyes
And convince us both
That I'll last through the night

[Chorus]
I could land on my feet if I tried
I never jumped a chasm so wide
And made it to the opposite side
Even now, as we are, standing here
I can see the doubt in your eyes
I can smell the animal fear
(I can smell the animal fear)

[Verse 2]
Hold my body, trembling fur and tooth
I won't bite, or did I speak too soon?
Treacherous light that ignites the moon

[Pre Chorus]
And she calls my name
And I howl her tune
But the hunters slay
By the clair of the moon

[Chorus]
I was raised with my face to the skies
But I was not a heavenly child
Savage, with a temperament wild
Even here, as we are, standing now
I can see the fear in your eyes
I can taste the sweat I your brow
I can smell the animal fear
(I can smell the animal fear)
