  • In the year of the tiger, I won't weep and moan
    Got no time for cooling heels, I've got to roam
    In the year of the tiger, I'm gonna roll these bones
    Gonna leave behind the heartache that I’ve known

    The only love I've known has slipped away
    The only love I’ve known has gone away

    In the year of the tiger, I’m gonna stake my claim
    Run a thousand miles beyond this house of pain
    In the year of the tiger, I got my kin to save
    And I'll be damned to see them suffer one more day

    On a cold, cruel July
    We didn't know just when the pale horse would arrive
    But love alone keeps us alive
    When we fear we can't go on at all

    In the year of the tiger, I heard a nightmare scream
    Cut above the din of every future dream
    In the year of the tiger, well, you'd best believe
    I am haunted by the visions that I've seen

    On a cold, cruel July
    We didn't know just when the pale horse would arrive
    But love alone keeps us alive
    When we fear we can't go on at all
    Can’t go on at all

    In the year of the tiger, into an ocean grave
    Threw his ashes to the wind then walked away
    In the year of the tiger, I got no time to waste
    A resolution to keep fighting and remain

    On a cold, cruel July
    We didn't know just when the pale horse would arrive
    But love alone keeps us alive
    When we fear we can't go on at all
    Can’t go on at all

    In the year of the tiger
    In the year of the tiger
    In the year of the tiger
    In the year of the tiger Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
