Kate Bush – The King Is Dead lyrics

The king is dead
No doubt about it
We came a long way
Just to say goodbye
And in the end
It was some old swansong
The king is dead
You'd never know it
But we got pictures
Of a different man
He's flesh and blood
No-one knows all the answers
Some days we just do the best we can

You changed my mind in a minute
It breaks my heart to admit it
Don't make me say...

The king is dead
The show is over
We came a long way
Just to turn around
Lesson learned
No-one knows all the answers
Some days we just do the best we can

You changed my mind in a minute
It breaks my heart to admit it
Don't make me say...

You let me in behind the lies
But you're no use to me lifesize
No-one's to blame

Some days we just do the best we can
