Lion In The Winter               w/m by Pamela Sue Perry     copyright 10/16/MMXII

 

      (capo on 3rd fret)

Musical Intro


I awoke to a new day too early

in the darkness of the morning.

Sleep is just a place I stay when rest

gets in the way like a warning.

c

I’m barely breathing (softly)

I haven’t seen the light of day.

Desire is like the Lion in the winter.

Don’t awaken the beast from its sleep.

Imagination triggers the devices

Save yourself and lock it in the keep!

v

The words that led me to the edge of ecstasy

are the bedtime stories you wrote for me.

Now suffering and heartache become atonement

for the sentiment in between the lines.

c

I’m barely breathing.

I haven’t had my say.

Desire is like the Lion in the winter.

Don’t awaken the beast from its sleep.

Imagination triggers the devices

Save yourself and lock it in the keep!

v

Now you hold the sword above my heart

the intangible my only sin.

Another time, another place, another life;

give out, give up;

give out, give up, give in.

c

I’m barely breathing (loudly)

But I am the one that got away.

c

Desire is like the Lion in the winter

Don’t awaken the beast from its sleep.

Imagination triggers the devices

Save yourself!

Save yourself and lock it in the keep!
