born a lion lyrics – ani difranco

i’m not hurting anyone
i’m just telling my truth
and if there
if there is something wrong
then maybe
there’s something wrong with you

what’s the big deal
get over it, relax
just ’cause i do up in your face
what other people do behind your back

why we all gotta look
gotta act the same
i say, if you’re born a lion
don’t bother trying to act tame

everything i do
i do for the first time
i got a big crush on you
and it’s crushing my mind
can i follow you home
and listen to you think?

leave my lip prints on your cups
leave my hairs in your sink
they think i’m out there

out there living on the fringe
well, this is my world
and i invited them in
they should try living

by my rules for a day
n*body would die
there’d be lots of stuff to say
i’m not hurting anyone
