This is a song I wrote about my experiences with depression and anxiety.

“Lion in the Closet” was released in 2015 and featured an animated video clip by designer and illustrator Dylan Fowler. The single version also features some uplifting cello, performed by Skye Myers.


Lyrics


There’s a lion in the closet in my room
He’s waiting for me to get home soon
When I open the door I don’t get a fright
We’ve been playing this game since the other night

But when I wake up it’s another illusion
Why do I make up these disillusions?

There’s a bird in the tree he talks to me
We have discussions about foreign policy
He’s an expert on migration, he’s in a bad situation
We’ve been talking for years but I don’t know his name

But when I wake up it’s another illusion
Why do I make up these disillusions?

Perhaps it’s a need?
Perhaps it’s desire?
I’ll burn all this baggage
When I light the fire
When I light the fire
When I light the fire

There’s a lion in the closet in my room
There’s a lion in the closet in my room
There’s a lion in the closet in my room
There’s a lion in the closet in my room
