Wondering Where the Lions Are Lyrics

 

Wondering Where the Lions Are Song Lyrics


From the Bruce Cockburn song

Sun's up, mm hmm, 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
(Wondering where the lions are)
I'm wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
I'm wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
Uh uh, I'm wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
I'm wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
Mmm hmm, wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, uh huh

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 and precise
Like the brain behind the gun
Should be, they got me
Thinking about eternity
But some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
I'm wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
I'm wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
Uh uh, I'm wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
Mm hmm, wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
Uh uh, wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
Oh oh oh, uh huh

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
(Wondering where the lions are)
I'm wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
I'm wondering where the lions are
(Wondering where the lions are)
Uh uh, I'm wondering where the lions are

[Thanks to Andy for lyrics]
