"Kion's Lament" is a song composed by Beau Black for The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar. It was released on January 8, 2016, as part of the film's soundtrack. It is sung by Kion as he accepts his destiny as the leader of the Lion Guard.

Lyrics

Kion:
Why? Why even trust me at all?
They say the Guard is my call
But then come tell me I'm wrong
Now what, what should I do?
And who, who do I turn to?
Now everything feels so upside down
Deep down, maybe I knew
It was way too good to be true
With all my friends lookin' up to me
Some leader I turned out to be!

Maybe my journey is far from done
They need a leader and I'm the one
So now it's time for them all to see
The lion I was born to be

It is time
To take the lead on my own
It is time
For something bigger than I've ever known
No need to wonder, the choice is done
Now I believe I truly am the one

So is it time?
Is it time?

Kion: (spoken)
Yes.

Kion:
It is time
