    Maybe the best song writer behind Dylan and Springsteen living. I love them both, but Josh takes the cake if you're a river man with a liking for historical references. I've been listening since the debut album and each one continues to impress, but Animal Years has been my favorite by far. Stephen King agrees, naming it his top disc...

Lyrics

I still remember that time when we were dancing We were dancing to a song that I?d heard Your face was simple and your hands were naked I was singing without knowing the words But I started listening to the wolves in the timber Wolves in the timber at night I heard their songs when I looked in the mirror In the howls and the moons round my eyes
So long, so high
Then winter came and there was little left between us Skin and bones of love won?t make a meal I felt my eyes drifting over your shoulder There were wolves at the edge of the field But I still remember that time when we were dancing We were dancing to a song that I?d heard Your face was simple and your hands were naked I was singing without knowing the words
So long, so high

Josh Ritter - Wolves Lyrics
