When I Am King Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Wake up, without a care, your head's not heavy, conscience clear
Sins are all forgiven here, yours and mine
Fear has gone without a trace
It's the perfect time, it's the perfect place

Nothing hurting, nothing sore, no one suffers anymore
The doctor's found a simple cure just in time

All these things if I were king would all appear around me
The world will sing when I am king
The world will sing when I am king

Ah, she walks right in she don't even knock
It's the girl you lost to the high school jock
She shuts the door and turns the lock, and takes your hand
She says she always felt a fool, for picking the captain over you

She wonders if you miss her, says she always told her sister
That you're the best damn kisser that she's ever had

All these things if I were king would all appear around me
The world will sing when I am king
The world will sing when I am king

Daylight waits to shine until the moment you awaken
So you never miss the dawn
No question, now, you know which road you're taking
Lights all green, the radio plays just the perfect song

Well, the war's been won, the fights are fought
You find yourself in just the spot
It's a place where everybody's got a song to sing
Just like the final movie scene, the prince will find his perfect queen

The hero always saves the world, the villains get what they deserve
The boy will always get the girl when I am king

All these things if I were king would all appear around me
The world will sing when I am king

All these things if I were king would all appear around me
The world will sing when I am king
The world will sing when I am king
The world will sing when I am king
