Lion in my winter
I'm a lion with no crown

You wanna make me big, man, a star on the screen
Some kind of James Brown or somethin' in between
But when I look for money, you smother me in charms
I can't live on glory when your bendin' both my arms

I, I was a lion in winter
And man, I had friends for miles around
I was a lion in my winter
What good's a lion, Lord, without a crown?

You're living in a cave, man
Upon your marble throne
You think you own the heavens
But you've got to be alone

You know, you know I prayed for sunshine
A woman with my name
You don't wanna live, man
You gave away the game

I, I was a lion in winter
And man, I had friends for miles around
I was a lion, a lion in winter
What good's a lion, Lord, without a crown?

I was a lion, a lion in winter
But what good's a lion, Lord, without a crown?
Oh, I was a lion, Lord
[Incomprehensible]
