the future holds a lion’s heart lyrics – darren hayes

the future holds a lion’s heart
darren hayes

when i first escaped the city of york
and leapt out of this cage,
when no silicon chip could sublimate
or tame this temptuous rage.

when my heart was in the attic,
like the picture of dorian gray,
i was rescued by the enemy
that dare not speak its name.

say h*llo to your future.
i’m just pleased to meet you-
you were a million miles away.
say h*llo to your lion’s heart.
queen victoria’s england
will never ever be the same.
giddyup! ha!

when i left the warm surroundings
of my selfish difficult stage-
and when our eyes first met there was deja-vu
and a feeling i could not shake.

and then when gravity seduced me
and drew me to this place,
i could swear we were together
in an entirely different age.

say h*llo to your future.
i’m just pleased to meet you-
you were a million miles away.
say h*llo to your lion’s heart.
queen victoria’s england
will never ever be the same.

so wonderfully good looking,
with fine and delicate lines.
if i place this face in carbon freeze
it will never be affected by time.

she said, “don’t confuse your beauty
with the insolence of youth.
you can move through time in one direction.
sad, but it’s the truth.”

but it took so long to meet you-
but it took so long to meet you-
it took so long to meet you.

it’s time to go,
it’s time to leave.
you should never have come.

get back to the craft;
get back to your age.
take somebody with you.
giddyup! ha!

say h*llo to your future.
i’m just pleased to meet you-
you were a million miles away.
say h*llo to your lion’s heart.
queen victoria’s england
will never ever be the same.

say h*llo to your future.
i’m just pleased to meet you-
you were a million miles away.
say h*llo to your lion’s heart.
queen victoria’s england
will never ever be the same.
