I was a dreamer with a plan for the world
A golden child with sails unfurled
With a vision, I made a promise to myself
I’d get a house and a dog and a girl and all would be well

I’d be a king
I’d be a king to everyone

I’d stay honest, keep my head on the ground
I’d like here all my life, never a stranger to the town
I’d light a fire when your hands were getting cold
I’d skip the punchline when the joke had gotten old

I’d be a king
I’d be a king to everyone
And they all would know my name

Five in the morning, woke up feeling like a mess
The house is dark and cold, I lost my job like the rest
Make some breakfast, spill some coffee on my chest
I break the kettle, slam the door, leave the nest

I was ashamed
My head was in flames
I’d never be the king
Never the king I thought I’d be

To anyone, you or me
