"Lions" is a song written and performed by The Features.

It began its long process into the Features canon in 2000 as the song "Stick Together," with the lyrics in the chorus, "I'm thinking we should stick together / Follow our hearts / Not even rain or stormy weather / Can tear us apart." The song later morphed into "Lions Dressed in Leather," in which the words of the chorus were "Not even lions dressed in leather can tear us apart," over a much different melody. The song finally developed into "Lions," which was released on Some Kind of Salvation with a more spoken delivery, considerably different music, and the chorus changed to "Not even lions can tear us apart" and with the addition of its signature "Oh oh oh ohhh oh oh".

Lyrics

You might find yourself angry at the things I do
Things I put you through
Hope you're able to forgive me like I forgive you
I forgive you
Aww girl what are you thinkin'?
I'm thinking that we... ooh... should stick together
I reckon that we... ooh... should follow our hearts
Let's stick together
Let's follow our hearts
Not even lions can tear us apart

I'm lookin' for answers
Some kind of relief
Some kind of salvation to make it all complete

Aww girl what are you thinkin'?
I'm thinking that we... ooh... should stick together
I reckon that we... ooh... should follow our hearts
Let's stick together
Let's follow our hearts
Not even lions can tear us apart

Let's stick together
Let's follow our hearts
Not even lions can tear us apart

Aww girl what are you thinkin'?
