"When I Am King" Lyrics

Great Big Sea

Wake up without a care;
Your head's not heavy,
Your conscience clear.
Sins are all forgiven here,
Yours and mine.
Fear is gone without a trace;
It's the perfect time in the perfect place.
Nothing hurtin', nothing sore,
No one suffers anymore,
The doctor found a simple cure
Just in time.

Chorus:
All these things if I were king
Would all appear around me.
The world will sing when I am king;
The world will sing when I am king.

Ahhh, she walks right in,
She don't even knock:
It's the girl you lost
To the high-school jock;
She shuts the door,
Turns the lock,
And she takes your hand.
She says she always felt a fool
For pickin' the captain over you.
She wonders if you missed her,
Says she always told her sister
Ah, that you're the best damn kisser
That she'd ever had.

Chorus

Whoa-whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-whoa-oh-oh

BridgeL
Daylight waits to shine until
The moment you awaken,
So you never miss the dawn.
No question now,
You know which road you're takin';
Lights all green,
The radio plays just the perfect song.

Oh, the war's been won,
The fights are fought,
And you find yourself
In just the spot,
In a place where everybody's got
A song to sing.
Then like the final movie scene,
The prince will find his perfect queen;
The hero always saves the world,
The villains get what they deserve,
The fella always gets the girl
When I am king.

Final Chorus:
All these things, if I were king,
Would all appear around me.
The world will sing when I am king.
All these things, if I were king,
Would all appear around me.
Ah, the world will sing when I am king;
The world will sing when I am king.
The world will sing when I am king.
