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’ll take the west,
You know I liked it better before all of the scars on your

How do you tame a lion. I see him 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 want, do not know what you feel, do not know if its

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

I’m not,

So we just be happy, happy, now
And tomorrow we'll be miserable right?

I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I’m right

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

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’ll take the west,
You know I liked it better before all of the scars on your chest, on your chest

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

    General CommentI think this is about a girl, not a guy, although that could just be wishful thinking.
    The east and west side could be referring to the different sides of sexuality, e.g Meg is the west, the other girl is straight and the east.
    'How do you tame a lion when they are lying low' sounds to me like she's wondering how to approach a girl she thinks might be interested in her but is currently pretending to be straight.
    There's the whole 'do not know what you want, do not know what you feel' which again relates to the confusion over interests.
    Ok I know it's a shot in the dark but one can hope!
