Diana Ross - Be A Lion Lyrics

There is a place we'll go
Where there is mostly quiet
Flowers and butterflies
A rainbow lives beside it

And from a velvet sky
A summer storm
You can feel the coolness in the air
But you're still warm

And then a mighty roar
Will start the sky to cryin'
But not even light'ning
Will be frightening my lion

And with no fear inside
No need to run
No need to hide
You're standing strong and tall
You're the bravest of them all

If on courage you must call
Then just keep on tryin'
And tryin', and tryin'
You're a lion
In your own way, be a lion

Come on be a lion

I am standing strong and tall
You're the bravest of them all
If on courage you must call
Keep on tryin'
And tryin', and tryin'
I'm a lion
In my own way
I'm a lion
A lion
A lion
A lion

  29. Marion Johnson

    1939, Wizard of Oz, was truly a wonderful, caring, movie, and so was 1978, The Wiz. Movies like these had meanings, discovering who you are, and not running from ourselves, to come to realize what's inside if us, never left. Even the wizard was afraid, so when the, Dorothy and her friends came for help, they had it all along. And they also, gave advice to the wizard, to find out what was in him. There's a long journey ahead of us, but if we only just believe, just believe!!!!

  30. Marion Johnson

    May God almighty, keep you all, and those who are.not here no more, with us!!!!

    Alexander They Hate

    The inspiration behind it. A lion king of the jungle , a leader, respected, and feared. Imagine applying that to your life as far as leadership in your life, respected and feared from those who dont have the attributes you possess. The motivation of doing or being anything in this world if you block fear👊👊

    In loving appreciation of the divine masculine heart trapped in a paradigm that pushes you to the borders of existence. Trying over and over was a fuel Source for this space. Turn that love inward and set yourself free.

    There is a place we'll go
    Where there is mostly quiet
    Flowers and butterflies
    A rainbow lives beside it
    And from a velvet sky
    A summer storm
    You can feel the coolness in the air
    But you're still warm

    And then a mighty roar
    Will start the sky
    To cryin'
    But not even light'ning
    Will be frightening my lion
    And with no fear inside
    No need to run
    No need to hide
    You're standing strong and tall
    You're the bravest of them all

    If on courage
    You must call
    Then just keep on tryin'
    And tryin'
    And tryin'
    You're a lion
    In your own way
    Be a lion

    Come on be a lion

    I'm standing strong and tall
    You're the bravest of them all
    If on courage you must call
    Keep on tryin'
    And tryin'
    And tryin'
    I'm a lion
    In my own way
    I'm a lion
    A lion
    A lion
    A lion

  78. Pea Brain

    I can't believe three of these people passed away. Diana don't go next ;m;

    clouds overnyc

    She has her grandchildren to live for and i believe as long as she keeps working which she loves to do, she can live another ten to twenty years, remember now she focuses on her health first then family and then work.

    Summer Lyric

    Not too long ago I was saying the only survivors are Diana Ross and Michael Jackson....then Michael Jackson passed.
