The Lioness - 2000 Secretly Canadian

The Black Crow
through sparrow black wind
a dead crow calls out to his wing
we were lightning across the whole world
we were lightning(x3)
and the guise to black cats we made a cross when our shadows met
and the guise to black cats we made a pact when our shadows passed
through sparrow black wind
a dead crow calls out to its wings
I'm getting weaker I'm getting thin
I hate how obvious I have been
I'm getting weaker(x4)
and I look down and see the whole world
and it's fading(repeat)

Tigress
it's difficult not to worry about what happens next
certain looks sort out confused looks
and certain looks sport confused looks
and I watched us talking in the mirror
and you put on that look
that says this little star wishes she weren't single
it is the eye that catches me a man protesting his worth
it is the year that catches you putting the shake on your words
you are alert as a tigress at a common table with her fate
you can almost taste it
we'll be gone be morning or be together by then(x2)
and I believe every woman has made up her mind to win

Nervous Bride
the women are dressed up and they are up to no good
you're dressed up for liberation
you flash that fire flag you fly above
the bright hot sails of your eyes
they say vaguely goodbye(x2)
there is a long delay in our words
then there are no words
and I lay down tonight as nervous as a bride
she's not nervous but she tries(x2)
and it's vaguely goodbye(x3)

Being In Love
being in love means you are completely broken
then put back together the one piece that was yours
is beating in your lovers breast
she says the same thing about hers(x2)
however I have gotten here I have plans to be with you
and for the first time it is working(x3)
and I am proof that the heart is a risky fuel to burn
yeah, we are proof that the heart is a risky fuel to burn
what's left after that's all gone I hope to never learn
but if you stick with me you can help me
I'm sure we'll find new things to burn
cause we are proof that the heart is a risky fuel to burn
yeah, we are proof that the heart is a risky fuel to burn

Lioness
it is for me the eventual truth
of that look of the lioness to her man across the Nile
it is that look of the lioness to her man across the Nile
wanna feel my heart break if it must break in your jaws
want you to lick my blood off your paws
you can't get her fast enough(x6)
I will swim to you(x4)
whether you save you me
whether you savage me
want my last look to be the moon in your eyes
want my heart to break if it must break in your jaws
want you to lick my blood off your paws
it is for me the eventual truth
it is that look of the lioness to her man across the Nile(x2)
and you can't get here fast enough(x6)
I will swim to you(repeat)

Coxcomb Red
and I wanted that heat so bad
I could taste the fire on your breath
and I wanted in your storm so bad
I could taste the lightning on your breath
I watched you hold the son in your arms while he bled to death
he grew so pale next to you
the world is so pale next to you
your hair is coxcomb red your eyes are viper black(x2)
you said every road is a good road
between the next road and your last road
every love is your best love and every love is your last love
and every kiss is a goodbye(x2)
I watched you hold the son in your arms while he bled to death
he grew so pale next to you
the world is so pale next to you
your hair is coxcomb red your eyes are viper black(x3)

Back On Top
there ain't nothing beyond hope(x2)
i've been thrashed by the hope of your body
i've been thrashed by the hope of your eyes
you looked me square in the eyes
you said don't take but one thing to be your truth(x2)
when I'm back on the top again(x2)
that is the truth
that is your truth
there ain't nothing beyond truth
i've been thrashed by the truth of your body
i've been thrashed by the truth of your eyes
you looked me square in the eyes
you said don't take but one thing to be your truth(x2)
when I'm back on the top again(x2)
that is the truth(x3)

Baby Take A Look
baby take a look(x3)
look at your man
do I look like a man who doesn't understand
you are the one true thing
in a world full of untrue things
if you're down on your luck(x3)
I will hold till better times(x2)
so baby take that look(x3)
look at your man
do I look like a man who doesn't understand
you are the one

Just A Spark
Will that look be your only reply
you lower your head in reply
here it is white and full like a pale ghost across the sky
and here it is crescent like a dagger from your heart into mine
here it is just a spark to shine(x2)
