Van Morrison - The Lion This Time Lyrics

The lion this time again

He’s in the circus in a cage

He’s trying to break out of the frame

The lion this time



He hears that same old sad refrain

But they can’t hold him with no chain

And they just can’t denounce his claim

The lion again



And he’s trying to get free

He knows that something’s bothering me

That I’m not too blind to see

The lion again

Oh, the love that’s in his soul

Is trying to get out you know

If only you could hear it roar

The lion again this time



They couldn’t take away his throne

He knows that he must stand alone

If need be, have a heart of stone

The lion again



The lion this time again

He’s in the circus in a cage

No wonder that he’s in a rage

The lion again



And he’s trying to get free

And he knows that something’s bothering me

Oh, but I’m not too blind to see

The lion this time

The longing that’s in his soul

Is trying to get out you know

Only you could hear it roar

For the lion this time



They couldn’t take away his throne

He knows that he must stand alone

If need be have a heart of stone

The lion again



The lion again this time

He’s in the circus in a cage

No wonder that he’s in a rage

The lion this time



The lion this time again

He’s in the circus in a cage

No wonder that he’s not the same

The lion again



The lion this time, the lion this time

The lion this time, the lion this time

The lion this time, the lion this time

The lion this time, the lion this time

The lion this time
