Wolves is a bonus track featured on Made in the A.M. It was released globally on November 13, 2015.

Lyrically, it describes trying to protect a woman as sleazy men try to get her attention.

Background

The song was written by Niall, Liam, Will Champlin, Ian Franzino and Andrew Haas.

Liam talked about the song's meaning, stating "To me, 'Wolves' is about, you've got this great girl, and it makes me think of being in the club, and loads of guys are trying it on with your girl and you're just like 'No'. I get quite angry in these sort of situations, and yeah it's like a bunch of different guys and you've got a hot girl and people just keep trying it on with her and you're just like 'for goodness sake'. I feel I'm coming for you. So I fight them. Like wolves."[1]

Lyrics

 
[Harry]
I hear them calling for you
I hear them calling for you

[Liam]
I feel the waves getting started
It's a rush inside I can't control
Your eyes keep pulling me in
I know, I know, I know

[Louis]
Your friends all talking 'bout me
They say I got no chance at all
But your fire is burning deep
In my soul, my soul, my soul

[Niall]
I ain't up for debating
Ain't enough for the taking
You got the world shaking

[All]
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart like a bullet in the dark
One by one, I gotta take them down
We can run and hide, ain't going down without a fight
I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart, they come straight for your heart
I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling for you

[Liam & Louis]
I keep on holding tight now
Cause your body's telling me don't let go
We are gonna be starting up trouble
I know, I know, I know

[Niall]
Just bringing my demons out
More than ever now
Your beauty could start a war
As you walk in the door

[Liam]
I ain't up for debating
Ain't enough for the taking
We got the world shaking

[Harry]
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart like a bullet in the dark
One by one, I gotta take them down
We can run and hide, ain't going down without a fight
I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling for you
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart, they come straight for your heart
I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling for you

[Niall & Liam]
I wish it wasn't true
But the whole world's tryna get a piece of you
And my heart keeps fighting in this battle of fools
Gotta make it through, gotta make it through

[Harry]
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart like a bullet in the dark
One by one, I gotta take them down
We can run and hide, ain't going down without a fight
I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling for you
In the middle of the night when the wolves come out
Headed straight for your heart, they come straight for your heart
I hear them calling for you, I hear them calling for you
