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
Wake 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
