Lion in my winter.
I'm a lion with no crown.

You want to make me big man,
A star on a screen,
Some kind of James Brown,
Or something in between.

But when I look for money
You smother me in charms.
I can't live on glory
When you're bending both my arms.

I, I was a lion in winter.
And, man, I had friends
For miles around.
I was a lion in my winter.
What good's a lion, lord,
Without a crown.

You're living in a cave, man,
Upon your marble throne.
You think you own the heavens,
But you've got to be alone.

You know, you know I prayed for sunshine,
A woman with my name.
I don't want to live, man,
You gave away the game.

I, I was a lion in winter.
And, man, I had friends
For miles around.
I was a lion in my winter.
What good's a lion, lord,
Without a crown.

I was a lion in my winter.
What good's a lion, lord,
Without a crown.
