Brian McKNIGHT & Diana King – When We Were Kings lyrics

In every heart there is a drum that beats
Steady and strong, it does not know defeat
I feel it pound and know the sound of true beliefs

In every soul, there is a memory
Of standing tall, the proudest we could be
I cannot fall, for I recall we were born in majesty

And when the long fight
Has been fought and won
We'll stand in the sun

And we will raise out hands, and we will touch the sky
Together we will dance in robes of gold
And we will leave the world remembering
When we were kings, when we were kings

Now is the time, here is the mountain top
When one man climbs, the rest are lifted up
With every step we're closer yet to a higher destiny

And when we reach out
To claim the thrown
Every man will know

And we will raise out hands, and we will touch the sky
Together we will dance in robes of gold
And we will leave the world remembering
When we were kings, when we were kings

Do you remember when we were kings?
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

And when the long fight
Has been fought and won
We'll stand in the sun

And we will raise out hands, and we will touch the sky
Together we will dance in robes of gold
And we will leave the world remembering
When we were kings, when we were kings
