The Lions

from These Things Take Time by limesix



This is a song about the things you do for the people you love, whether they want you to or not.


When the lions show their teeth,
and open doorways like their jaws,
you aren't getting any farther than the corner where I left you

And don't you know I told you?
I told you to be scared

When you set off on your own,
you think you can move faster,
but that's why they're there, to remind you that I'm here

And don't you know you need me?
To navigate this jungle
To take you where it's quiet
To where we've always been


from These Things Take Time, released April 17, 2020
Recorded in my living room in Orlando, Florida, probably in May 2011.

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
