The Lion by Embleton, performed at RealGrey Records - Acoustic / by Embleton

Almost two years ago, I played a special house show event in the heart of Canton, at a place called RealGrey Records. Below are the lyrics to The Lion, if you care to follow along. 

The Lion
I ran my fastest, he nipped my heels.
I heard him roaring, my lungs were filled
But with exhaustion and fear at best
Will I awake to find a lion on my chest?

And he hides behind my pillow at night
What a fright, at the sight
How I wish that I could put up a fight
Can't escape so I wake up

I started screaming, conscious at last
The point evades me, these visions past
Knowing I had to drift back to dream
I resolved to ask the lion what he means

And he hides behind my pillow at night
What a fright, at the sight
How I wish that I could put up a fight
Can't escape, i won't wake up.

Who do you think you are?
Do you know me?
How can I stop you from haunting all of my dreaming?
Who do you think you are?
Do you know me?
Where do you come from?
How can I be rid of you?

I'm the strength that you've been waiting to find
Not a fright, in the slight
I'm the courage that you needed to fight
Why are you running away from me?
