This Other Side Of Me

So here it is
What more could you expect
This is all I've tried to give
I let you drink upon my tears
Because my happiness is not enough
I try to satisfy your hunger
Live up to your expectations
I'm sorry if I'm not good enough
I tried
I fought like a lion could
But I couldn't think with a cool head
And foolish not to sit back down
But now I take a rest
As I gaze over my flat prow
You were the distant mountains
That I could never conquer
Because you thought yourself mightier than I
But at least I am a dreamer
I know how to hope
And I will work my way through
Kicking the dust aside
As I stride to your side
I will climb to the top
Because I am a lion
I can conquer anything
The road is going to be long
And the journey tiresome
But as long as I've got my feet
That which I can walk upon
I will always be walking
Until I reach your peak
And let my mane soar
Peacefully thinking to myself
In my own moment of glory
Which I have between my jaws
This is it, now I can look upon
My land, that which I have dreamed upon
Let not the roar be spoiled
And wait until morning
When everyone catches it by surprise
That this is their new king
And this is my reprise
