lion in the winter lyrics – james reyne

living on the highway
way outside of town
the lean to it is leaning
bent & broken down
got myself a hunting rifle
a hunchback in my head
double barrelled misty morning
when i get out of bed

chorus ~
a lion in the winter
a fool in love in spring
though i’m just your whipping boy
don’t mean a godd*mn thing

i know the streets of this town
are full of famous tv stars
so elegant & talented
they’re taking sleigh rides in their cars
talk to willy loman
arthur miller’s in his bed
dreams of retribution
dancing in his head

chorus

i know i gave up drinking
but i’m on this beach tonight
a 6 pack and a cigarette
well i don’t feel so good just yet

living on the highway
way outside of town
the lean to it is leaning
bent & broken down
living on the highway
bent & broken down

chorus x 2

a lion in the winter
