Lyrics

There was a lion who loved a sparrow
And he bade her make her nest within his mane
And though his brothers did torment her
He vowed that he would always keep her safe
But as is the custom of her kind she flew away to warmer climes
And taking flight she sang her sad refrain

I never meant to let you down, to let you down
And for your sake I would repent
But I cannot change the way I am

There was a friar who loved a lady
And weekly heartfelt letters they’d exchange
She’d steal away to meet him by the river
And in the place of prayers he’d say her name
But faith demanded he deny the pleasures of a mortal life
And faithful to his vows he did remain

I never meant to let you down, to let you down
And for your sake I would repent
But I cannot change the way I am

Don’t put your faith in me
Bright star of my heart
It’s better now, you’ll see
That we are apart

There was a girl who loved the forest
And spent her days at play among the trees
And every night she’d be invited
To join all of the creatures in their games
But she grew up in part because that world of dreams no longer was
And it whispered as it lay among the leaves

I never meant to let you down, to let you down
And for your sake I would repent
But I cannot change the way I am
