Lyrics

I whisper, you echo
Coiled up like snakes, won't let go
Forever, each other
We'll fight the tooth and nail for
We're star shot, we're night lit
We're wolves, our pack we won't quit
Blood bonded while haunted
We're twin flames lighting up the sky
We're twin flames lighting up the sky

You are my spirit animal
You're my totem of love
You are the child of the moon
You are the ruler of the sun

You are my spirit animal
You're my totem of love
You are the child of the moon
You are the ruler of the sun

You are my spirit animal
You're my totem of love
You are the child of the moon
You are the ruler of the sun

You are my spirit animal
You're my totem of love
You are the child of the moon
You are the ruler of the sun

White tiger, the bravest
Turn dreamscapes into conquest
Licked crystals of tree sweat
Now I have become ancient
You're howling, I'll follow
You're liquid when I swallow
Spit thunder, joined hunger
We're twin flames lighting up the sky
We're twin flames lighting up the sky

You are my spirit animal
You're my totem of love
You are the child of the moon
You are the ruler of the sun

You are my spirit animal
You're my totem of love
You are the child of the moon
You are the ruler of the sun

You are my spirit animal
You're my totem of love
You are the child of the moon
You are the ruler of the sun

You are my spirit animal
You're my totem of love
You are the child of the moon
You are the ruler of the sun

You are the ruler of the sun
You are the ruler of the sun
