  • Taking over this town, they should worry,
    But these problems aside I think I taught you well.
    That we won't run, and we won't run, and we won't run.

    And in the winter night sky ships are sailing,
    Looking down on these bright blue city lights.
    And they won't wait, and they won't wait, and they won't wait.
    We're here to stay, we're here to stay, we're here to stay.

    Howling ghost they reappear
    In mountains that are stacked with fear
    But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
    A lion-heart.

    His crown lid up the way as we moved slowly
    Pass the wondering eyes of the ones that were left behind.
    Though far away, though far away, though far away
    We're still the same, we're still the same, we're still the same.

    Howling ghost they reappear
    In mountains that are stacked with fear
    But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
    And in the sea that's painted black,
    Creatures lurk below the deck
    But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
    And as the world comes to an end
    I'll be here to hold your hand
    'Cause you're my king and I'm your lion-heart.
    A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart
    A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart

    Howling ghost they reappear
    In mountains that are stacked with fear
    But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
    And in the sea that's painted black,
    Creatures lurk below the deck
    But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
    A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart
    A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart
