A Lion's Love


A Lion's Love

The only way you can get to me is if you swim through the ocean of my tears

Swim through my brokenness and swim through my fears

You might meet an animal who'll throw you a spear

But even then you still won't be near

Try to catch me but I'm in the same place

Hiding my traces and hiding my face

This world has not defeated me but left me in shackles

Now the lion of love has been fighting my battles

No more space

No more distance

No separation

The sea has been split for me to walk through

You've drawn near to me

Now I can draw near to you
