about

Lion's Mouth Los Angeles, California

The women of Lion’s Mouth are as fearless as the music they create. As a duo, they pump out more sound and heart than your average four piece band. Armed with a litany of musical influences, their songs are highly emotive, unabashedly honest, and full of gutsy musical transitions. Lion’s Mouth makes headstrong indie-pop that is not content with being background music. ... more

Track Name: Waiting
this is unlike you.
i don't understand
this is unlike you
tell me, where have you been?

i remember your smiling face
the first time we met out here
and i can't wait till you pull up
the trees have grown so proud
they've been waiting for us 
to build our first house
you must be running late,
but baby i've got faith
there's nowhere you'd rather be

i don't know what i'd do
if this place came crashing down
i don't know where i'd go
if this place came crashing down

well, i've got bills to pay,
i didn’t want this anyway...
maybe this time i won't show up
so much for my favorite place,
hanging out in this tree
if i go through with this 
it'll be a bad memory

i don't know what i'd do
if this place came crashing down
i don't know where i'd go
if this place came crashing down

this is unlike you.
i don't understand
this is unlike you
tell me, where have you been?

i don't know what i'd do
if this place came crashing down
i don't know where i'd go
if this place came crashing down
i don't know what i'd do
if this place came crashing down
i don't know who i'd be
if this place came crashing down on me
Track Name: Crucible
wake up in a cold sweat
struggle to catch my breath
cough up memories past
walk out through smoke and ash

i am not afraid
to stand in harm’s way
rush in put the fire out
head in a lion’s mouth
i am not afraid
i am not afraid

It takes a lot of strength
to face the hard things
you’d rather suffocate
dancing around the flames

i am not afraid
to stand in harm’s way
rush in put the fire out
head in a lion’s mouth
i am not afraid
i am not afraid
Track Name: Distance
everyone's got an opinion now
where is she going?
why hasn't she left this town?
well i've got ropes around my shins
and roadblocks that you built in my head
and i think it's about time, i finally said

i need distance between you and me
fears painting oceans as far as i can see
i need patience 'cause this love has taken me
far from the person, i hoped i would be

oh yeah

and i guess it's a good thing you never called
'cause if you had i might have never moved on
cut the rope from 'round my neck
i won't cry 'cause i've got no hope left
and i think it's about time, i understand

i need distance between you and me
fears painting oceans as far as i can see
i need patience 'cause this love has taken me
far from the person, i hoped i would be

oh yeah

i need distance between you and me
fears painting oceans
am i still in your dreams?
i need patience 'cause this love has taken me
far from the person, i hoped i would be

oh yeah
Track Name: That Would Imply I Cared
i'll disappear someday soon
don't you know?
i've been waiting on this day
since i was eight years old
it's been so long
i've gotten used to being alone

and i felt the fangs
but i didn't know the difference
and you sunk into me
with lies of such conviction
it's been so long
did you really need the attention?

well what do you want from me now?
i've got nothing left to say
nothing left in me
what could you take from me now?
i'm not the problem
but i can turn this on myself

pull me back down with your sugar (sucre) tongue
and i'll swallow your words
with the water filling my lungs
it's been so long
and i can't touch the bottom

and i'll never understand
how you can speak so plainly
you made "i love you" sound so easy
but now i'm gone
and i hope it hurts without me

well what do you want from me now?
i've got nothing left to say
nothing left in me
what could you take from me now?
i'm not the problem
but i can turn this on myself

well, what do you want from me now?
you want to be my friend?
you should have thought of that
what could you take from me now?
show me it's worth it, 'cause i've got nothing left
Track Name: Soulmates
do you believe in soulmates?
do you believe in love?
do you believe it’s never too late?
well, i believe all of the above.

do you believe in science?
do you believe in fate?
do you believe that happiness
is a choice we make?

do you believe in permanence?
do you believe me when i say
“i could love you always,
until the earth calls for me"?
i could love you always
until my heart’s final beat.
Track Name: Carolina
baby, i've had enough of this
i'm sick of the lies
in every single kiss
you're so good at
hiding the real you
that you can't see
the awful things you do

and if you listen to me right now
i'll tell you everything
i've been pushing down
i can't always tell you
'cause you're to proud to
admit you're wrong

if it's not me
that you want to keep
then by all means
go and find what you need
but i won't wait for your letter
'cause i'm off to Carolina

baby, please
won't you spare me another line?
take what's yours
'cause i'm finally taking mine

and if you listen to me right now
i'll tell you everything
i've been pushing down
i can't always tell you
'cause you're to proud to
admit you're wrong
(but you're wrong)

if it's not me
that you want to keep
then by all means
go and find what you need
but i won't wait for your letter
'cause i'm off to Carolina

if it's not me
that you want to keep
then by all means
go and find what you need
but i won't wait for your letter
'cause i'm off to Carolina
i'm off to Carolina
Track Name: Little Galah
unfolded a map
we crossed off
every city we visited
every city we dreamt of living in

through coffee stains
and busted knuckles
under the gaze of maple leaves
i've been wondering
how good it might feel to be free

fly high little galah

the flight was long
but the attendants were kind
i wiped my eyes
and tried to soothe my mind

i heard you've gone off
and lived your life
but i've felt hollow
since you left mine

fly high little galah

and i swear to god if there
was one thing i could change
i would have never stepped foot
back on that plane
we would have sat in your car
outside it'd be pouring rain
and i would have said
"this is crazy, i love you. would you marry me?"
i know this is crazy, but i love you. would you marry me?

fly high little galah
Track Name: Who Knew?
i sent letters
and bit my nails till you replied
i had no idea of
the mess i was in at the time
i read those characters
you choose so carefully
the way your mind works
it should have scared me

it's been years now
and it's impossible
to figure out
why you let us go
but i keep looking around
for someone who knows
but it's impossible
you're impossible

who knew?

i crossed my fingers and
waited up for you all night
i never imagined you'd
disappear from my life
now what am i left with?
when the best part of me has died
how can i love again?
if it's not you it's just a lie

it's been years now
and it's impossible
to figure out
why you let us go
but i keep looking around
for someone who knows
but it's impossible
you're impossible

who knew?

you knew, didn't you?
you knew, you knew!

it's been years now
and it's impossible
to figure out
why you let us go
but i keep looking around
for someone who knows
but it's impossible
you're impossible

who knew?
Track Name: The Ocean
you've been gone for days
long enough to set my fears ablaze
and these were waters, you didn't know
you were a fool to set sail alone

and the ocean it called to you.
the ocean it haunted you.
the ocean it swallowed you.

your scent lingers on my bed
i see your ghost as i lay down my head
it screams the last words you said
how could you leave?
how could you leave like that?

and the ocean it called to you.
the ocean it haunted you.
the ocean it swallowed you

i feel the waves crash over my feet
i curse the day they took you from me
i missed my last chance to breathe
but i’ll find you underneath

and the ocean it called to me
the ocean it haunted me
the ocean it swallowed me
Track Name: The Dr.
tender footfalls
i know they're coming my way
i've been waiting
oh so patiently
the doctor's calling,
he's got some bad news
please don't tell me
i should stop waiting for

you know

the leaves are falling
oh what a beautiful scene
i can see you
in every breath i breathe
the doctor's calling
he's got some bad news
i may never ever
recover from

you know
you know i would give anything

tender voices
i hear them calling me to
come back to earth
accept my world without you
the doctor's calling
i know he's got some bad news
i've been dying
since the day i left

you know
you know i would give anything
yeah, you know
you know
i would hold your hand until the end
Track Name: Run
separate your life from
the people you know
celebrate your right to
go where you wanna go

learn to run
learn to run
learn to run

as fast and as far as you can
where the pain won’t follow you
as fast and as far as you can
they can’t, they can’t control you

the longer i live
the more i’m convinced
there’s not enough time
to waste your life
waiting for them
to change their mind

so learn to run
learn to run
learn to run

as fast and as far as you can
where the pain won’t follow you
as fast and as far as you can
they can’t, they can’t control you

sometimes it's not
not right to stay
your only choice
is to break the chain
don't listen to what they say
sometimes it's not
it's not right to stay

hear the timpani
hear the violin
dance to the down beat
ride the West wind

as fast and as far as you can
where the pain won’t follow you
as fast and as far as you can
they can’t, they can’t control you
