But can you still now remember who's been hiding up there?
Through his howling at twilight all his songs of despair?
Do you remember the caller of a black and white crime?
Well he lives by that memory and falls from his mind
            
And you know it's a lion's heart
That will tumble and tear apart
When he's coming down the hills for you
            
Well he'll

Now he's a stranger among us, he will die in the park
Where he hides from the statues and the weather remarks
In that land there's a winter
In that winter's a day
In that day there's a moment when it all goes away
            
And you know it's a lion's heart
That will tumble and tear apart
When it's coming down the hills for you
