Jandek – I Was A King lyrics

I was a king
When I was twelve
You couldn't touch me
No, no, no, no
I kept you away
I didn't think about it
It wasn't important
I was made
Get out of my way
But I liked (like?) to be with you
Don't get me wrong
It's just that a threat
Was the furthest thing from my mind
I don't feel the air
I don't know what time it is
Except the sun tells me now and then
I got my clubs
And I'm bursting all around
You can't but see me
I'm in front of you
I'm all around
I got inside of you
Well here I am
What you going to do
I somehow flew here
And we're together
I was a king
When I was twelve
You couldn't touch me
No, no, no, no
I kept you away
But I was with you
I still am
Today my thoughts are wrapped up
In all my days
I got my new doors
So perfect and clean
It's early someday
I'm thinking about me
And how I was
