Sara Bareilles – King Restless lyrics

He was a good man he had a good heart with a good soul
A good thing we had so I thought but I was wrong
He let me down by never letting on
He was as good as gone.

He had a good game he held a good hand played the cards that
He should play so you understand why I lost
He had that thing I never put my finger on
I put my whole hand and good God, yeah.

La da da da da da da

CHORUS
You talk about being lonely and tell me that your
Sunsets weren't so great when you were waiting on me
Oh but you don't know me
I realize some other eyes were watching your sunrise
You blame it on me and do it innocently don't leave
Your hat on my door you don't live here no more
The gig is up, game is through, And you lose.

So Relax. And settle in
To my story about one foolish King and his sin
He had a Queen with a castle worth coming in
Everyone said so but he's no good at listening

It was one day and queenie's in a land far away
And the good ol' King Restless is aching to play
With the next best thing and the girl after that
But it doesn't matter now, Cause I'm not coming back
Not coming back.

CHORUS
You talk about being lonely and tell me that your
Sunsets weren't so great when you were waiting on me
Oh but you don't know me
I realize some other eyes were watching your sunrise
You blame it on me and do it innocently don't leave
Your hat on my door you don't live here no more
The gig is up, game is through, And you lose.

You said I could stand next to you if I wanted to want the best for you
But I don't so you make your next mistake on your own
You can tell me to forgive you but don't ask twice
Don't want to see the part of me that's made of fire
And ice, talk of love talk of pain talk of fear all I hear is goodbye,.

CHORUS
You talk about being lonely and tell me that your
Sunsets weren't so great when you were waiting on me
Oh but you don't know me
I realize some other eyes were watching your sunrise
You blame it on me and do it innocently don't leave
Your hat on my door you don't live here no more
The gig is up, game is through, And you lose
