When I Am King

This song is by Great Big Sea and appears on the album Something Beautiful* (2004).

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

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

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
that you're the best damn kisser
that she'd ever had

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

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

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

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
The world will sing when I am king
The world will sing when I am king
The world will sing when I am king
