I gave her that diamond she dreamed of
And I bought her a home with a view
I took her to the end of the rainbow
But all I left her was blue

Seems like I never had time to love her
And now it seems time just stands still
I thought I was king of the mountain
But I was only a fool on the hill

Now I'm here alone after leavin' her lonely
Lord I'm livin' with a memory
I know I can't kill
I thought I was king of the mountain
But I was only a fool on the hill

Now I'm here alone after leavin' her lonely
Lord I'm livin' with a memory
I know I can't kill
I thought I was king of the mountain
But I was only a fool on the hill

I thought I was king of the mountain
But I was only a fool on the hill
