Motorhead - In The Year Of The Wolf Lyrics

In The Year Of The Wolf,
all the world smelled good,
In the snow and the ice,
all the rest was blood,
In the time of the tribe,
we took a thousand lives,
When I ran with the wolves,
and the hunting was good,

See me now, I was another,
Not like me, when the wolves were brothers,
See me now, you cannot know,
The kind of food that me grow,

It was the wolf in me,
Body and soul on fire,
In the cold, full moon,
Blood, red, desire,
It was the wolf in me,
You know it felt so true,
The night I ran with the wolves,
Tonight I come for you,

In The Year Of The Wolf,
how could you ever know,
There in the forest,
I had teeth to show,
In a different time,
when the world was mine,
When I ran as a wolf,
and the sun burned low,

See me now, I was another,
Mean and vicious, fast and clever,
see me now, you would not dream,
The food I ate, the food that screamed,

It was the wolf in me,
And all my soul was fire,
By the cold, dull moon,
Blood, red, desire,
It was the wolf in me,
I howled the cold night through,
The year I ran as a wolf,
Tonight the food is you,

In The Year Of The Wolf,
all the tribe ran mad,
On the frozen lake,
and I felt so glad,
With tooth and claw,
all your blood and more,
When I ran with the wolves,
and the hunt turned bad,

See me now, this is not me,
Not like the one, I used to be,
See me now, you would not guess,
A different heart raving in my chest,

It was the wolf in me,
When the world was cold,
It was the life I lived,
In the dark world below,
It was the wolf in me,
Crying and howling too,
I was crying for the hunt,
But I was hunting for you

  30. Keiffer lover

    I hope lemmy is fucking rocking out in heaven!

  31. Alan Morrell

    Dammit, Lemmy! Couldn't you make at least ONE bad song? R.I.P.

    Daniel Giovanniello

    @Andrew Manning Eh. I feel like Motorhead's style doesn't fit the natural style of the song itself. While my opinion has changed (that being that I don't think Motorhead really have many if any bad songs), I still think their cover of The Trooper is kinda crap.

    Andrew Manning

    @Daniel Giovanniello... You're obviously just biased towards Iron Maiden because Motörhead's style, especially Lemmy's vocals actually suit the Trooper better than IM. They make it a rougher, more brutal song which totally suits a song about a soldier's experience in battle. You have to listen to it objectively and forget about Iron Maiden's style; it is not meant to mimic IM style in any way.

    Daniel Giovanniello

    @Andrew Manning I'm wearing a Motorhead shirt right the hell now lmao; they remain to this day my favorite band of all time. If anything, I should be biased towards Motorhead, especially since I'm not a massive Maiden fan.

    Andrew Manning

    @Daniel Giovanniello .. Then I don't understand how you think their style doesn't suit the song perfectly. And just for the record, Lemmy only does the vocals on it and Phil's on guitar but the rest of the players on it are actually not Motörhead. Motörhead's one my all time favorites as well. You know which song of theirs I actually don't like tho, 'Blackheart' from Rock 'n'Roll.

    Daniel Giovanniello

    @Andrew Manning that's what's great about Motorhead; they have so much varied music that any lover of Rock n' Roll can find a song they love and maybe a song they dislike. I personally like Blackheart, but that's because Rock n' Roll is the album that introduced me to the band back in 2016

  32. cool

    Wtf all of he's songs are fucking awesome I am really amazed

  33. A Darker Day

    Lemmy will live forever within our minds!!!!


    and HEARTS, bro!

  34. MPCB11 23

    Makes me wanna jump on my motorcycle and ride for days.

    KoG GoK

    whats stopping you?

  35. Lycan Seijin

    Hello new theme song!

  36. waldchinese

    geil das ist musik!

  37. timijai22

    Ugh why the fuck can't I buy this song from the us iTunes Store?!


    Motorhead always did their own thing, companies like apple don't want you finding people like this.

    Zenya Okinaga

    buy the cd in the store

  38. TheSWolfe

    RIP Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister, from one Wolfe to another :9

  39. drvannozzun

    Motörhead is dead. Thank god we got them on tape. Tonight the food is you.


    Motorhead will NEVER DIE, Yes, they are gone ..they will ALWAYS live on through the fans and their music

    I am Mark

    @Walla bro 😓🤘🤘🤘

  40. Samuli Kiiveri

    RIP Lemmy.

    Mark Bullen

    More like the Hound from Game of Thrones <3


    He sent me here lol

    Maniac1031 a total war fan

    @Mark Bullen he wa referencing the fact that the actor who plays Daryl listens to motor head to get in character. In terms of asoiaf characters this fits Arya so much more than the hound

  49. 1Nyro

    Bestiality never sang such a cool song.

    "There was a wolf in me..."

  50. MurderInc707 Tarkov

    I bet most people that are viewing this is because of Norman Reedus/ daryl said he listens to this/ before shooting episodes lol

  51. DimatheManiac

    orgasmatron, the best one

  52. Les Deffner

    nope. But I'm happy for those who ( by way of Norman Reedus) are learning how awesome Motorhead is.

  53. Les Deffner

    Crushing badass-ery.


    Hell this is crushing!!!!!!!!!

  55. jazzy j

    YES! I thought I was the only one that came here because of Norman Reedus, he's such a little dork

  56. The Sibearian Bearserker

    Haha, the wolf isn't on the Zodiac.

    gordan bajda

    it is now

  57. italianeyelashes

    I'm surprised it's not illegal to kick as much ass as Motörhead does, especially in this fuckin song.

  58. Walking Doctor

    So I'm not the only one here because of Norman Reedus?

  59. LetoAtreides82

    Daryl Dixon's theme song!

  71. MotörheadBander

    what an irony than my brother is the biggest walking dead fanatic I know, he's really obsessed with the show, and he can't believe Norman Reedus tweeted one of my videos, he's making me write this.

  72. kbop567

    "all this gangster rap shit looks like pussies in front of MOTÖRHEAD (gotta spell that right) they are born badass"

  78. Shoe Badou

    Man. I wish Steve Vai wouldn't have been so intimidated my Motorhead. If he could've found his groove, it could've been scary.

  79. DarthArgh

    I've been wondering about that for weeks. Even passed it on to my old English Professor. We're still unsure.
