A heart like lion, a burning like fire,
Waiting just to be set free,
A heart like a lion, a burning like fire,
How can I bear captivity.
Oh yeah.

Some they tell me I'm a fool, a fool who walks this road alone,
So afraid of making changes, remember that nothing is carved in stone,
Oh tell me why we are so afraid of the secrets locked with in our souls,
Cause everything that we're made of is dying just to be exposed,
Oh yes.

So don't turn your back on yourself, there's nowhere to run,
You know your life's ain't a practice run,
It's time to wake up you're mind, Oh yeah yeah,
For maybe tomorrow will never come or maybe it will but by then it's too late, uh huh,
There's nothing left to do but cry, oh yeah.

So now you cry but you don't know why, and now you cry but you don't know why,
Oh yeah yea.

A heart like lion, a burning like fire,
Waiting just to be set free,
A heart like a lion, a burning like fire,
How can I bear captivity.

So what you want to be now well it's time to realize,
That everything you need now has been right in front of your eyes. yeah.
Don't point your fingers and blame, remember it's never too late to change,
Don't point your fingers and blame, remember it'll be okay.

So don't turn your back on yourself, there's nowhere to run,
You know your life's ain't a practice run,
It's time to wake up you're mind, Oh yeah yeah,
Maybe tomorrow will never come or maybe it will but by then it's too late, uh huh,
There's nothing left to do but cry, oh yeah.

And now you cry but you don't know why, and now you cry but you don't know why,
Oh yeah yea.

You better get up,
You better get out,
You better get up and turn your life around,
You only live once,
You better act now,
Cause you never know when it's gonna come back around, yeah.

A heart like lion, a burning like fire,
Waiting just to be set free, Oh yeah yeah,
A heart like a lion, a burning like fire,
How can I bear captivity. Oh yeah yeah,
Oh yeah yeah,

A heart like a lion,
A heart like a lion,
A heart like a lion.

    To live like its your last day and to change the system and the corruption. Stand up for what you believe in. Let it out or you wont be satisfied. You only live once so get a hold of yourself and do something meaningful.

    The burning inside we all feel... The taunting whispers that nag at us to be strong, be true.. Do what we know we should do!

    It's like a brave man who walks the road alone without scared in his mind and heart. Just like a lion they have no fear !
