The Lion's Roar

Album: The Lion's Roar (2012)
  • Now the pale morning sings of forgotten things
    She plays a tune for those who wish to overlook
    The fact that they've been blindly deceived
    By those who preach and pray and teach
    But she falls short and the night explodes in laughter

    But don't you come here and say I didn't warn you
    About the way your world can alter
    And oh how you try to command it all still
    Every single time it all shifts one way or the other

    And I'm a goddamn coward, but then again so are you
    And the lion's roar, the lion's roar
    Has me evading and hollering for you
    And I never really knew what to do

    Well I guess sometimes I wish you were a little more predictable
    That I could read you just like a book
    For now I can only guess what's coming next
    By examining your timid smile
    And the ways of the old, old winds blowing you back 'round

    And I'm a goddamn fool, but then again so are you
    And the lion's roar, the lion's roar
    Has me seeking out and searching for you
    And I never really knew what to do

    Sometimes I wish I could find my Rosemary Hill
    I'd sit there and look at the deserted lakes and I'd sing
    And every once in a while I'd sing a song for you
    That would rise above the mountains and the stars and the sea
    And if I wanted it to it would lead you back to me

    And the lion's roar, the lion's roar
    Is something that I have heard before
    A children's tale, the lonesome wail of a lion's roar Writer/s: JOHANNA KAJSA S�DERBERG, JOHANNA KAJSA SOEDERBERG, KLARA MARIA S�DERBERG, KLARA MARIA SOEDERBERG
