Lyrics

“King for a Day”

1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4

Right now, I’m feeling OK
Like the world’s spinning in my hands and I’m king for a day
The night is old, and sleep calls my name
But I feel young and quite alive and I don’t want this feeling to go away

Tomorrow is just a couple of hours sleep ahead
But I don’t mind seeing the sunrise instead

Anything, is possible right now
Life is good, I’m smiling. Even if I don’t know how
Filled with youth, but old enough to be wise
Young enough to still be a fool but willing to see through other’s eyes

And in the morning I’ll think of her
She’ll be the first thing on my mind
It’s been the first time in a long time
That I woke up with a smile

King for a day, king for a day
King for a day, king for a day

Right now, things are working out
Honesty my policy, today has made me proud
I told her things that for her sake she should know
Prevented myself a future mess, I let my feelings go

And tonight I do feel better
Better than any night before
Any night since I’d met her
Since I opened that unknown door

King for a day, king for a day
King for a day, king for a day
King for a day, king for a day
King for a day, king for a day

Ah ahh…
