Lions Den Chord Grace VanderWaal

Capo 2 with [G] [Em] [B] [C] [Am]


VERSE
I don’t know how to be with myself
Colors aren’t as bright as they used to be
Forget the girl they wanted me to be
And I don’t know how to be okay
The audience in my head looking up at me
Pretending just for them because they need me

PRE-CHORUS
I’m human, and I’m falling
But you tell me I’m flying
But it’s building
And I can’t breathe
Wanna feel the way that I used to be

CHORUS
And so I go out
Get fcked up so that
Weirdly I can feel like a kid again
And the lights are like magic
Nothing’s wrong
Twisted, traumatic
And then the morning comes
And it’s bad again
Dancing in the lion’s den
Dancing in the lion’s den

VERSE
And I guess we’re all just tryna work it out
Tryna get back to our child self
Chasing the feeling, finding the meaning
But just continuing to corrupt ourselves
And I still remember how it all felt
The sun on my skin an ice cream will melt
And now I’m at parties, stay past 3 A.M
And I’m smoking too much just to feel it again

PRE-CHORUS
But I’m human, and I’m falling
And you tell me I’m flying
But it’s building
And I can’t breathe
Wanna feel the way that I used to be

CHORUS
And so I go out
Get fcked up so that
Weirdly I can feel like a kid again
And the lights are like magic
Nothing’s wrong
Twisted, traumatic
And then the morning comes
And it’s bad again
Dancing in the lion’s den
Dancing in the lion’s den
Dancing in the lion’s den
Dancing in the lion’s den
Dancing in the lion’s den
Dancing in the lion’s den
