A heart like a lion, burning like fire
Waiting just to be set free
A heart like a lion, burning like fire
How can I bear captivity?

Some they tell me I'm a fool
A fool who walks this road alone
So afraid of making changes
Remember that nothing is carved in stone

Tell me why we're so afraid of
the secrets locked within our souls?
Cause everything that we're made of
Is dying just to be exposed

So don't turn your back on yourself
Cause there's nowhere to run
And you know your life ain't a practice run
It's time to wake up your mind

For maybe tomorrow will never come
Or maybe it will but by then it's too late
There's nothing left to do but cry
So now you cry but you don't know why

A heart like a lion, burning like fire
Waiting just to be set free
A heart like a lion, burning like fire
How can I bear captivity?

So what you want to be now?
Well it's time to realize
That everything you need now
Has been right in front of your eyes

Don't point your fingers and blame
Remember it's never too late to change
Don't point your fingers and blame
Remember it'll be okay

So don't turn your back on yourself
Cause there's nowhere to run
And you know your life ain't a practice run
It's time to wake up your mind

For maybe tomorrow will never come
Or maybe it will but by then it's too late
There's nothing left to do but cry
So now you cry but you don't know why

You better get up, you better get out
You better get up and turn your life around
You only live once, you better act now
Cause you never know when it's gonna come back around

A heart like a lion, burning like fire
Waiting just to be set free
A heart like a lion, burning like fire
How can I bear captivity?

    General CommentTo me, this song is about someone who is too afraid to let their emotions out, someone who is too scared to let people get close. "Some they tell me I'm a fool, a fool who walks this road alone" refers to a person who is alone, without a partner. The song is basically saying if you are all alone because you can't let people get close to you, you need to change before it's too late because life is too short.
