Lyrics for Lions, Tigers & Bears by Jazmine Sullivan:

Chorus
I'm not scared of Lions and Tigers and Bears (Oh my)
But I'm scared of (Loving you)
I'm not scared to perform at a sold out affair (That's right)
But I'm scared of (Loving you)
Am I the only one who thinks it's an impossible task? (Ooh, Ooh)
Why it don't last, is that too much to ask? (Ooh, Ooh)
Why do we love, love?
When love seems to hate us?

Verse 1
Sorry if I sound so filled with gloom
You say you care, and I know you do
But this is from my experience
And my conclusion only makes sense

Pre-Chorus
Just cause I love you and you love me
It doesn't mean that we're meant to be
I can climb mountains, swim across the seas
But the most frightening thing is you and me

Chorus
I'm not scared of Lions and Tigers and Bears (No I'm not)
But I'm scared of (Loving you)
I'm not scared to perform at a sold out affair (That's right)
But I'm scared of (Loving you)
Am I the only one who thinks it's an impossible task? (Ooh, Ooh)
Why it don't last, is that too much to ask? (Ooh, Ooh)
Why do we love, love?
When love seems to hate us?

Verse 2
Most circumstances, I know my fate
But in this love thing, I don't get the game
Why does it feel like those who give in
They only wind up losing a friend

Pre-Chorus
Just cause I love you, and you love me
It doesn't mean that we'll ever be
Fly across the ocean, sing for the queen
But the most frightening thing is you and me

Chorus
I'm not scared of lions and tigers and bears
(No I'm not)
But I'm scared of loving you
I'm not scared to perform at a sold out affair
(That's right)
But I'm scared of loving you
Am I the only one who thinks it's an impossible task
Why it don't last?
Is that too much to ask?
Why do we love love
When love seems to hate us?

Verse 3
I'm not sure, though
I'm not sure
But if we never try, we'll never know
It's better to have loved
Than not to loved at all

Bridge
Not trying is worse than to stumble and fall
And if we do, I'd rather it be with you
Cause at least there will be sweet memories
Oh, I'm not scared

Chorus
I'm not scared of lions and tigers and bears
(No I'm not)
But I'm scared of loving you
I'm not scared to perform at a sold out affair
(That's right)
But I'm scared of loving you
Am I the only one who thinks it's an impossible task
Why it don't last?
Is that too much to ask?
Why do we love love
When love seems to hate us? (Ooh ooh)
