Billy Bob Thornton – I Used To Be A Lion lyrics

I don't have a girl to bail me out tonight
And I don't have the means to help myself
I don't have a friend to get me tight tonight
It seems like nothings right when nothings left
I bit the hand that fed me & I made the knife that bled me

But I used to be a lion
But I used to be a lion

I don't have the pride to hold my head up high
And I don't have the strength to make the kill
These days I don't run free I'm just passing by
Waking up at all is my only thrill

I lost the ones that love me
Now everyone's above me

But I used to be a lion
I used to be a lion
