Lionhart

I can come across as arrogant sometimes, I’m aware of it 
Got other stuff inside, just don’t wanna share it 
It don’t matter now, the damage is done 
Just gotta get over, whatever, move on 
All got stories to make another shed tears,

keep a psychologist working for years 
They can get on ya vibe, get in ya head 
At the end of the day still gotta make ya own bed 
That aint cynical, its truth, its fact 
Aint got nobody 24hrs watching your back 
Its better ya learn it now while ya young 
Ya only ever really have ya self to rely on 
I aint no hater, I love everyone here 
But it’s a universal kinda love I wanna make that clear 
If ya wanna love me back from a distance that’s fine 
Just stay outta my face, don’t cross over the line 
I don’t do one to one coz that’s not my toon 
I aint into none of that shit mills & boon 
Fairytale stuff might be alright for some 
But I’m living in the real world and this is my one 
Yeah, this is my one.

I’m riding through life on the back of a lion 
It’s with me wherever if go 
Under the almighty roar there’s a kitten 
It’s only for show to make sure I’m not bitten 
By the mouths of a cruel society 
No one can touch me 
While I’m riding through life on the back of a lion.

I was beaten & bullied from a very young age 
I weren’t about to be no victim I showed’em my rage 
They’d come in a crowd, I’d take’em all on 
Kept getting back up to show’em I was strong 
They couldn’t understand why I wouldn’t stay down 
Shake their heads & walk away, I dropped myself to the ground 
Bloody & weak, but my battle was won 
Coz they showed some respect from that day on 
Don’t get me wrong I done some bullying too 
Wanna take the time to say sorry if I hurt you 
But if you dissed me then obviously I retract 
If I had the time all over again I’d still give you a smack 
Back to the apologies to those who are owed 
We all make mistakes as we head down this road 
Aint no reasons or excuses for what I did 
Just hope you can forgive me now & we can live & let live 
All have our ways to survive an that’s fine 
Aint right ain't wrong 
All I’m saying is, this is mine, yeah, this is mine.

To all the kids in care, you know what I mean? 
I aint been there but I might as well of been 
Always wishing for the life you aint got 
Dreaming its better, believe me it’s not 
Ya better with ya dreams coz the bubble don’t burst 
Blaming ya self yeah, thinking ya cursed? 
But no ones gonna love you in the way that you believe 
You gotta love ya self, stay open to receive 
If ya shut ya self down the angers gonna eat ya 
Ya owe it to ya self ta let nobody cheat ya 
Out ya journey, so change the colour ta ya sky 
I know, ya gonna make it 
Sweet dreams, good luck, goodbye.
