Joe Henry - Time Is A Lion lyrics

If you fear the angels above while you sleep
Then I'll be the blood, you paint on your door
Your dream is a worry that nothing will keep,
But time is a story and there will be more
Your dream is a worry that nothing will keep,
But time is a story and there will be more

And death and disgrace can seduce anyone
Who needs to believe there’s judgment at hand,
God may be kind and see you like a son,
But time is a lion when you are a lamb
God may be kind and see you like a son,
But time is a lion when you are a lamb

The years see the best of intentions and greed
They come without shame, they'll leave you with some
Men become old when their hurt becomes need,
But time is a lover and your time is young
Men become old when their hurt becomes need,
But time is a lover and your time is young

The sun is a soldier, out crawling the hill
Setting fire to every house that’s in view,
Lighting the ruin of my hope and my will
Till I’m like a shadow and I’m falling on you,
Crawling on you,
Oh you know how I do…

So sleep here with me and I’ll keep you close
For now while i try to live up to you,
You can’t see the challenge of this, I suppose,
But time is a dare and I’m trying to
You can’t see the challenge of this, I suppose,
But time is a dare and I’m trying to
But time is a dare and I’m trying to ( 3x )
