"Take That to the Lion King" #Poetry

The situation weighs quite heavy
and from here some evangelize
but the biggest drive inside me
is to fuckin' apologize
I let you down
I broke too soon
I wanted to fly us to the Moon
but now that surely dies

Dream big, it just might happen
since it's not your call to make
but you must be there for the casting call
if it's a risk you're willing to take
Dreams big or even small
can't always realize
but the ones which do make light and love
will shine in many peoples' lives

It makes no sense to say I'm sorry
except as it says it's not just me
the way of life will take its course
and we're just trying to be free
It goes around in circles
which is a mystery some suppose
but take that to the Lion King
and ask him what he knows

- Colonel Arbuthnot Jones

"I Swear" Lyrics
I swear by the moon and the stars in the skies
And I swear like the shadow that's by your side

I see the questions in your eyes
I know what's weighing on your mind
You can be sure I know my part
'Coz I stand beside you through the years
You'll only cry those happy tears
And though I make mistakes
I'll never break your heart

And I swear by the moon and the stars in the skies
I'll be there
I swear like the shadow that's by your side
I'll be there
For better or worse
'Til death do us part
I'll love you with every beat of my heart
And I swear

I'll give you every thing I can
I'll build your dreams with these two hands
We'll hang some memories on the walls
And when (and when) just the two of us are there
You won't have to ask if I still care
'Coz as the time turns the page
My love won't age at all

And I swear (I swear) by the moon and the stars in the skies
I'll be there (I'll be there)
I swear (and I swear) like the shadow that's by your side
I'll be there (I'll be there)
For better or worse
'Til death do us part
I'll love you with every beat of my heart
And I swear

And I swear (I swear) by the moon and the stars in the skies
I'll be there (I'll be there)
I swear (and I swear) like the shadow that's by your side
I'll be there (I'll be there)
For better or worse (better or worse)
'Til death do us part (I know)
I'll love you with every single beat of my heart
I swear

That was lovely and I don't know it so I guess that must be from "The Lion King?"

Thank you
