"How to Tame Lions" as written by and Megan Alexanda Washington....
How do you tame a lion?
It was a savvy answer.
The repartee and
argument.
(you look like a dancer.)
You can take the east side
and I will
take the west.
(You know, I liked it better
before all of the scars on
your)

How do you tame a lion?
I see them when I sleep.
(You know, I liked
it better
when we pretended this was for)
I do not know what you want.
I do
not know what you feel.
I do not know it it's-

How do you tame a lion
when
they are lying low?
You be my Arthur Miller and I will be your Marilyn
Monroe.

Oh, no.

So we just be happy tonight.
And tomorrow we be
miserable, right?

I know I'm right.

How do you tame a lion?
It was a
savvy answer.
The repartee and argument.
You are like a dancer.
You can take
the east side
and I will take the west.
(You know, I liked it better
before
all of the scars on your chest.)

    General Commentok so this is my take on this song. it's about a boy, like most songs are really. this guy that she's after, it's an up and down relationship "So we just be happy tonight.And tomorrow we be miserable, right?" and she knows she cant be with him " I know I'm right." but she cant get him out of her head "i see him when i sleep" and thus she wants to tame him "how do you tame a lion".

    thats probs not at all the meaning but it's a great song, love in the first half how she doesn't sing chest though we all know that's what it is, i think that symbolises how she doesn't wanna confess that the relationship isn't going to work....

    General CommentMy take on the song is that the whole "How to tame a lion" is a metaphor for essentially 'taming' a person. Like thus said, it's likely to be about a boy; perhaps somebody that she wants, yet they aren't the best thing for the other person. As for the line "You know, I liked it better before all of the scars on your chest," could it be that the person is scarred by previous relationships, leading to them perhaps acting like a 'lion'?
