First Aid Kit lyrics : "King of the World"

At
Ten in the morning
I was laughing at something

At the airport terminal

At

Nine in the evening
I was sitting
Crying to you

Over the phone

While

Passing the border
From a state
To another

Filled with people
Whom I couldn't help
To relate to


And we
Stopped a while

At a roadside restaurant
Where the waitress was sitting outside
Smoking in her car


She had that
Look of total

Fear in her eyes
And as we drove away from there
She looked at me

And she smiled

I keep

Running around
Trying to find the ground
But my head is in the stars

And my feet are in the sky

Well I'm

Nobody's baby
I'm everybody's girl
I'm the queen of nothing

I'm the king
Of the world


And once you asked me
What was my biggest fear
That things would always

Remain so unclear

That

One day I'd wake up
All alone


With a big family
And emptiness deep in
My bones


That I would be so blinded
Turn a deaf ear

That my fake laugh would suddenly sound
Sincere


Now I wasn't
Born for anything
Wasn't born

To say anything
I'm just here now
And soon I'll be gone


No I'm
Nobody's baby

I'm everybody's girl
I'm the queen of nothing
I'm the king

Of the world

Now
Every day
There's a short

Intermission
While I sleep
They start dimming
The lights


But I've seen everything
I ever want to see
Screaming "Fire!" in a theater
People taking their seats


Watch it all go down
Like a stone in a stream
If you fall for your reflection
You will drown
In a dream


Tell me something real
Tell me something true
I just want to feel
There's something left
That I can do


But I'm
Nobody's baby
I'm everybody's girl
I'm the queen of nothing
I'm the king
Of the world
