Capo 5

[Em]    [G]    [D]    [Em]    
Now the p[Em]ale morning si[G]ngs of f[D]orgotten th[Em]ings   
She plays a t[Em]une for those who w[G]ish to overlo[Em]ok   
The fact that t[Em]hey'd been blin[G]dly to see by those who pr[D]each a[Em]nd pray and teach
But she f[Em]alls short and the n[G]ight explodes with l[Em]aughter

Don’t you c[Em]ome here and s[G]ay I di[D]dn’t warn [Em]you   
About the [Em]way your wo[G]rld can [Em]alter
And oh, h[Em]ow you t[G]ry to comm[D]and it all, s[Em]till   
Every si[Em]ngle time it all shi[G]fts one way or anoth[Em]er   

And I’m a g[C]oddamn cow[G]ard, but then ag[D]ain so are y[Em]ou   
And the l[C]ion’s ro[G]ar, the [D]lion’s ro[Em]ar   
As we e[C]vaded and [G]holleri[D]ng for y[Em]ou   
And I n[C]ever re[G]ally k[D]ne  [Em]w, what to do


[Em]    [G]    [D]    [Em]    
Now I gu[Em]ess sometimes I wi[G]sh you were a li[D]ttle more p[Em]redictable
That I could [Em]read you j[G]ust like a[Em] book
For now[Em] I can o[G]nly guess w[D]hat’s coming n[Em]ext   
By [Em]examining your [G]timid smi[Em]le   
And the w[Em]ays that the [G]old, old [D]wi  [Em]nd, blowin’ you back around

And I’m a [C]goddamn f[G]ool, but then a[D]gain so are [Em]you   
And the l[C]ion’s ro[G]ar, the li[D]on’s r[Em]oar   
Has me s[C]inging out and s[G]earchi[D]ng for y[Em]ou   
And I n[C]ever r[G]eally k[D]ne  [Em]w, what to do

[Em]    [G]    [D]    [Em]    
[Em]    [G]    [D]    [Em]    
[Em]Sometimes I w[D]ish I could f[C]ind my rose mary [Em]hill   
I [Em]sit there and l[D]ook at the d[C]eserted lakes and I’d [Em]sing   

And every [C]once in a w[G]hile I’d [D]sing a song for [Em]you   
That would [C]rise above the m[G]ountains and the s[D]tars and the s[Em]ea   
And if I w[C]anted it to, it would lead you back[Em] to me

And I’m a [C]goddamn f[G]ool, but then a[D]gain so are [Em]you   
And the l[C]ion’s ro[G]ar, the li[D]on’s r[Em]oar   
Has me s[C]inging out and s[G]earchi[D]ng for y[Em]ou   
And I n[C]ever r[G]eally k[D]ne  [Em]w, what to do

And the [C]lion’s [G]roar, the [D]lion’s r[Em]oar   
Is s[C]omething that [G]I have h[D]eard bef[Em]ore   
a c[C]hildren’s t[G]ale, the l[D]onesome [Em]wail   
[Em]of a [G]liiii[D]ion’s roar [Em]    

[Em]    [G]    [D]    [Em]    
[Em]    [G]    [D]    [Em]    

Capo 5


Now the pale morning sings of forgotten things
She plays a tune for those who wish to overlook
The fact that they'd been blindly to see by those who preach and pray and teach
But she falls short and the night explodes with laughter

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 another

And I’m a goddamn coward, but then again so are you
And the lion’s roar, the lion’s roar
As we evaded and hollering for you
And I never really knew, what to do


Now 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 that the old, old wind, blowin’ you back around

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



Sometimes I wish I could find my rose mary hill
I 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 I’m a goddamn fool, but then again so are you
And the lion’s roar, the lion’s roar
Has me singing out and searching for you
And I never really knew, what to do

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 liiiiion’s roar
