Lyrics of Run with the lions

If you wanna see, just open your eyes
If you wanna breathe, let’s go outside in the open
Out of the open

There’s no need to stay locked up inside
This kingdom is yours and this kingdom is mine
Let me show you
Just let me show you

There’s no need to be afraid
You don’t got to hide away
‘Cause we got a love that can’t be caged
We got love a that can’t be caged

C’mon, c’mon let your feelings out
C’mon, c’mon get your freedom now, run wild
Run with the lions (Oh)

C’mon, c’mon let your feelings out
C’mon, c’mon get your freedom now, run wild
You run with the lions (Oh)

If you want a voice, just open your mouth
Don’t worry about the words, we’ll figure it out
Just try it
Just try it

Oh, ooh, there’s no need to be afraid
You don’t got to hide away
‘Cause we got a love that can’t be caged
We got a love that can’t be caged

C’mon, c’mon let your feelings out
C’mon, c’mon get your freedom now, run wild
Run with the lions (Oh)

C’mon, c’mon let your feelings out
C’mon, c’mon get your freedom now, run wild
You run with the lions (Oh)

Ooh, ooh, ooh
‘Cause we got a love that can’t be caged
Ooh, ooh, ooh
So we got a love that can’t be caged (We got a love that can’t be caged)
Run with the lions (Oh)
Run with the lions (Oh)

C’mon, c’mon let your feelings out
C’mon, c’mon get your freedom now, run wild
Run with the lions (Oh)

So we got a love that can’t be caged
We got a love that can’t be caged
