"Lion" as written by Cary Ryan Barlowe, Rebecca St. James, James L. Moore and Shaun Adrian Shankel....
Mysterious
That's what I call You
I'm curious about You
I'm scared and not sure that You are safe
But Your eyes seem to say that You are good

This is not a dream that I'm living
This is just a world of Your own
You took me from all that I knew
Shown me how it feels to hope
With You with me, facing tomorrow together
I can learn to fly
Feels like I'm living in a lion's mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

Wise eyes, You see the core of me
Your gentleness melts me
And now I know that words cannot describe
The power that I feel when I'm with You

This is not a dream that I'm living
This is just a world of Your own
You took me from all that I knew
Shown me how it feels to hope
With You with me, facing tomorrow together
I can learn to fly
Feels like I'm living in a lion's mouth, but the lion is

Peace and power, love forever
Who am I to stand before You?
I am speechless
But in my weakness
You are here and all is well

You took me from all that I knew
Shown me how it feels to hope
With You with me, facing tomorrow together
I can learn to fly
Feels like I'm living in a lion's mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

This is not a dream that I'm living
This is just a world of Your own
You took me from all that I knew
Shown me how it feels to hope
With You with me, facing tomorrow together
I can learn to fly
Feels like I'm living in a lion's mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

Is an angel

    General CommentI love this song.
    It's about falling in love who is seemingly dangerous, or not someone you normally would.
    At first you're scared about this new experience, they show you new things, new people, something different from what you know. You have this fear that it could end badly, emotionally, or physically, hurting you. But you know that this guy wouldn't hurt you. It's just the fear of the unknown.
    That's my idea anyway.
    Totally fits with Twilight. Anyone know if she wrote it about twilight or just coincidence. Or did Stephenie Meyers use it as influence?

    General CommentSorry to state the obvious but it's for the benefit of the noobs. It's clearly about God, since 1) she wrote this for Narnia, and Aslan the Lion represents Jesus, 2) she is a famous Christian singer and 3) it's got a distinctive spiritual feel to it. It's probably about someone who is new to their faith and just discovering Jesus' love.
