"Wondering Where the Lions Are" as written by and Bruce Cockburn....


Sun's up, uh huh, looks okay

The world survives into another day

And I'm thinking about eternity

Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me


I had another dream about lions at the door

They weren't half as frightening as they were before

But I'm thinking about eternity

Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me


Walls windows trees, waves coming through

You be in me and I'll be in you

Together in eternity

Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me


Up among the firs where it smells so sweet

Or down in the valley where the river used to be

I got my mind on eternity

Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me


And I'm wondering where the lions are...

I'm wondering where the lions are...


Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake

Thousand-year-old petroglyphs doing a double take

Pointing a finger at eternity

I'm sitting in the middle of this ecstasy


Young men marching, helmets shining in the sun,

Polished as precise like the brain behind the gun

(Should be!) they got me thinking about eternity

Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me


And I'm wondering where the lions are...

I'm wondering where the lions are...


Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay

One of these days we're going to sail away,

Going to sail into eternity

Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me


And I'm wondering where the lions are...

I'm wondering where the lions are...
