I have a secret for you

I've been told if you want to make it in this game
Got to have the luck
You got to have the look
To make what

I quite like to make it through the night
My heart beats slow fast, I don't feel right
With a slight of hand
I might die

What about you over there?
Well, don't you think I care?
Well I know you know
I know you know I know

And to the man who would be king
I would say only one thing
And to the man who would be king
I would say only one thing

La la la
La la la
La la la

Lived my dream today
And I have lived it yesterday
And I'll have lived it tomorrow
Ah, don't look at me that way

Well I hate the way that you say
But my heart has gone astray
With all these friendships slipped away
But there's a death, this musta be that way

I lived my dreams today
I lived it yesterday
And I'll be living yours tomorrow
Anything else to say?

I lived my dream today
I lived it yesterday
And I'll be living yours tomorrow
So don't look at me that way!

What's about you man, seen my girl?
What's about you man, seen my girl?
What's about you man, seen my girl?
What will you do when she comes here?
Oh she'll kill me, oh, I don't wanna kill me

And to the man who would be king
I would say only one thing
And to the man who would be king
I would say only one thing

La la la
La la la
La la la
