Words to "Untame Lion" 
I love an untame lion
He's calling me to come
My cold heart how it hesitates
I want to turn and run
His power is dangerous
His power is endless love
I love an untame lion
He's broken every chain
I'm free now how can I resist
His voice singes out my name
He's calling me
To a place where love's the only song
He's calling me
To a place where night will dance
With endless dawn dancing on and on and on
I try to hide in sleeping
His music fills my dreams
I'm filling with longing for a place
A place I've never seen
He's calling, I want Him so
He's calling, I can't let go
Shadows falling His voice is calling
Golden as the sun
It is morning without warning
I fall into His love
