I used to be a King and everything around me
Turned to gold
I thought I had everything and now I'm left without a hand to hold
But it's all right I'm O.K. How are you?
For what it's worth I must say I loved you
And in my bed late at night, I miss you
Someone is going to take my heart
But no one is going to break my heart again
I used to be a King and everything around me
Turned to rust
It's `cause I built my life on sand
And I watched it crumble in the dust
But it's all right I'm O.K. and I want to know
How you are
For what it's worth I must say I loved you as you are
And in my bed where are you?
Someone is going to take my heart
But no one is going to break my heart again
I used to be a King and everything around
Me turned around
But I know all I have to do is sing
And I'll lift myself way off the ground
Yeah, but it's all right I'm O.K. How are you?
For what it's worth I must say I loved you
And in my bed late at night where are you?
Someone is going to take my heart
But no one is going to break my heart again
