Hard-Fi – The King lyrics

In this town, I used to be the king here,
Now I don't mean a thing here, Where did it all go wrong?

I look around, and no one knows my face here,
I feel so out of place here, Where did it all go wrong?

I say your name, And I wonder where you are now,
I hope you're doing fine, Well I hope that you found love...
I hope that you found love...

[CHORUS:]
I've been thinking of you, every waking hour,
Staring at the wall, trying to find the nerve to call...
Catch your photo and I wonder, Are you still on this number?
But In my heart I know, You changed that number long ago
Once I was The King...

We said goodbye, You begged me not to leave you,
I didn't want to leave you, but you know I had to go...

I said look for me, when the spring sun shines on the street,
Where we'd meet and plan our future, But I never made it home...

I turn around, head on over to your street yea,
Just in case you might still be there, but now they've pulled it down...
Now they've pulled it down...

I've been thinking of you, every waking hour,
Staring at the wall, trying to find the nerve to call...
Catch your photo and I wonder, Are you still on this number?
But In my heart I know, You changed that number long ago,
Nowhere is home, and I feel old,
My clothes are worn, My heart is cold,
With you I was The King,
But with you my heart would sing,
But now my story's done,
Now I'm no one...
But once I was The King
