When my songwriting partner Michael Davis presented me these lyrics, I felt the melody come at me like a rushing waterfall, immediately clashing with the dull music in the hotel lobby we were sitting in. When I sang them out loud for the first time, it sounded so grand! It was significant and heavy, dark but irresistibly hopeful. And that’s how it is for me everytime I hear it.
We wanted this song to be a true EPIC LOVE SONG! I can’t think of many scenes more epic than lions swiping pews and pulpit aside to ferociously attack one another!!!
I believe the song inspires different fantasies & fairytales in all of us, what do you imagine when you hear it?
Lions Fighting In A Church (Bloom/ Davis)
We've been running
out of time
We've been searching
for a sign
We've been trying to find some meaning
in the chaos of our lives
And you & me,
we used to be invincible
We walk these streets
like we are now invisible
And once we were renegades
from another age,
from a time when giants walked the earth.
And we were Kings & Queens of everything
and roared like lions fighting in a church
We've been playing
We've been praying
in the dark
We've been searching for a reason
to leave our futures in the past
Pre + CHORUS
And we'll be riding wild horses
But never finding our way back
And if you hold my hand always
I’ll never stray from this track
Fighting in a church
