“I can’t get to sleep” by Alexander Wolfe
The talented Alexander Wolfe shows the world the beauty and the mystery of hope, strength and overcoming fear through mature verses and a capacity for story-telling that only belongs to folk. This singer/songwriter from the UK reaches into his soul and brings forth memories and experiences that we can relate to. As he speaks about a wolf outside his door preventing him from going forward, from sleeping, from being the man he should be, we feel as if that wolf is also outside our door holding us back. But alas, we come face to face with this wolf to find out that it is only a reflection of ourselves and with this comes the sudden realization that our lives are ours and only ours and if we are not where we want to be, the fault is on us. He speaks to us and invites us to stop letting ghosts and wolves keep us up at night, for we can control the outcome if we are truly willing to put the effort to move forward and be the best version of ourselves possible. Truly inspiring verses that should be heard daily to remind us of the strength that lies in us, which is strong enough to pull us behind or push us forward.
