I'm not yours
You are mine
Let that sink in
Like the Mary Rose
She went down
With a heavy load
But who is this fading flower?
Mm-mm

CHORUS:
Come to life
In the spring
I was shaking
from your sting
You should know
In like lamb
Out like a lion
I came in
Like a lamb
Out like a lion

We grew up
So we were told
Time just leaves us
Out in the cold
Seasons change
I'm getting warm
A feline in mohair
Mm-mm

CHORUS

CHORUS

I came in
Like a lamb
Out like a lion
(x2)

    General CommentI am so enchanted with this song, but I'm still trying to parse it after four or five years. Here is all I've got so far:

    In-like-lamb/out-like-lion obviously refers to March, and seemingly means someone presenting as innocent in the beginning, and then later revealing themselves to be some kind ferocious.

    The Mary Rose was a navy warship during the reign of Henry VIII, which sunk in battle. More in-like-a-lion and out-like-a-lamb, that -- am I wrong?

    The rest of the lyrics, I'm still unwrapping. It sounds like a postmortem of a relationship at a particular time of year.
