Its good to be the king, Ive heard it said
Thats why I let you put a crown on my head
Hoping that Ill never be forced to fake
Actions that Ill never have to take

I let you think I was a better man
With pretty words about how true I am
Humbly pretending to be brave and strong
Inside Im wondering, what if Im wrong?

Every once in a while youll see
Things are not what they seem to be
Like the moment you saw through me

Ah, but when push comes to shove
I had lost the thing I love
When I lost the courage of my convictions
(Courage of my convictions)

I never let you see my doubting side
Ive always felt theres things you cant confide
I need to be what I need to be
However artificially

And now I havent got a thing to show
For all the posing and the bravado
You tested me and I had to fail
No longer am I a super male

I was proud and I had to fall
Now my image has grown so small
And to think that I had it all

Ah, but when push came to shove
I had lost the thing I love
When I lost the courage of my convictions
(Courage of my convictions)
And I live in constant fear
That Ill never have you here
Til I find the courage of my convictions
(Courage of my convictions)

Ah, but when push comes to shove
I will have the thing I love
If I have the courage of my convictions
(Courage of my convictions)
And your heart I would enslave
And this whole world I would save
If I have the courage of my convictions
(Courage of my convictions
