In this town, I used to be the king here
Now I don't mean a thing here, where did it all go wrong?
I look around and no one knows my face here
I feel so out of place here, where did all go wrong?

I say your name, and I wonder where you are now
I hope you're doing fine now, well I hope that you found love
I hope that you found love
I hope that you found love

I've been thinking of you, every waking hour
Staring at the wall, trying to find the nerve to call
Look at your photo and I wonder, are you still on this number?
But in my heart I know, you changed that number long ago
Once I was the king

We said goodbye, you begged me not to leave you
I didn't want to leave you, but you know I had to go
I said look for me, when the spring sun shines on the street
Where we'd meet and plan our future, but I never made it home

I turn around, head on over to your hands, yeah
Just in case you might still be there
But now they've pulled it down
Now they've pulled it down

I hope that you found love
(Wonder what you doing next)
I hope that you found love
(Wonder what you doing next)
I hope that you found love

I've been thinking of you, every waking hour
Staring at the wall, trying to find the nerve to call
Look at your photo and I wonder, are you still on this number?
But in my heart I know, you changed that number long ago

Nowhere is home and I feel old
My clothes are torn, my heart is cold
With you I was the king
With you my heart would sing
But now my story's done, now I'm no one
But once I was the king
