I'm the ruler of this lonely land
Royal fool, that's what I am
I'm the one who let you slip right through his hands
I watched my treasures fade to rust
All my gold has turned to dust
Once proud keeper of a burning flame called love
No longer shared by us

I am the king of all things
Oh, let's say goodbye, make you cry
Leave you sad and lonely
I'm on my knees begging please, come back to me
Oh, the ruler of a heart that now is broken
I'm the king of all things lonesome

Shades of black and white and grey
Oh, now cover my domain
Long, lonely days over a barren waste I reign
Sad, blue moon hangs all alone
A howling wind blows all night long
A heartsick whippoorwill sings a tearful song
Oh, my queen of hearts is gone

I am the king of all things
Oh, let's say goodbye, make you cry
Leave you sad and lonely
I'm on my knees, come back to me
Oh, the ruler of a heart that now is broken
I'm the king of all things lonesome

Whoa, I'm the king of all things lonesome

I am the king of all things
That say goodbye, make you cry
Leave you sad and lonely
I'm on my knees, come back to me
Oh, the ruler of a heart that now is broken
I'm the king of all things lonesome

I'm the king of all things lonesome
