This is a song that was inspired by a conversation during a set break with a Iraq war vet who served two tours. It's because of her that this song came to being. After the gig, the first verse came into my head in the car on the way home. Credit also goes to Steve Prosser, the singer I work with in Sterns County 17. Without his help, this song would have never been finished. It's nice to be able to work with another songwriter!

Lyrics:
Lioness, oh lioness
I can tell from your hands
You've been gone twice from home
Boots lost in the sand
Lioness, oh lioness
I can understand
what fills you heart
and drained your soul
was nothing that you planned
nothing that you planned

Bitter winds of truth or hope
you could always command
Better than all that wrote
or wanted a different end
Terrible times at home
there was always a plan
driftin' alone with your friends
a drink in your hand
a drink in your hand

And when you're alone
the tears set in
The cards you hold
were dealt by those
who didn't know you couldn't
push to win

guitar solo

And now you're home
where things haven't changed
But in your heart
they should know
you aren't really the same

Lioness, oh lioness
I can tell from your hands
You've been gone twice from home
Boots lost in the sand
Lioness, oh lioness
I can understand
what fills you heart
and drained your soul
was nothing that you planned
nothing that you planned

Very nice song.

Your singer has a very Jason-esque quality to his voice (Jason & the Scorchers, one of my all time favorite bands).

The vocalist on the track is me. I recorded all the parts (guitar, vocals, bass, piano, drums) myself with GarageBand. Thanks for listening! I'm glad you liked it.
