Welcome to the great republic
Guess I should show you round
Where once I was a king
And now I am a clown
The love that we once shared
Made a king of me
But now you’re gone… but now you’re gone
All I face is poverty
…King without a heart
…King without a hope
…King without a woman baby
Oh I’m a king without a crown
…King without a heart
…King without a hope
…King without a woman baby
Oh I’m a king without a crown
Hell hath no fury
Like a woman scorned
But heaven don’t boast – no heaven don’t boast
The jewel – the pretty jewel I just pawned
Every cloud has a silver lining
Every dog has its day
Oh but I guess the sun stopped shining
On the day you went away
…King without a heart
…King without a hope
…King without a woman baby
Oh I’m a king without a crown
…King without a heart
…King without a hope
…King without a woman baby
Oh I’m a king without a crown
…King without a heart
…King without a hope
…King without a woooman baby
Yes I’m a king – king! King without a crown
Bathed in former glory
Deposed from my throne
How do I get to tell my story?
When all I get’s your answerphone…
But you ain’t home
With the love you gave
I felt like royalty
But now you’re face to face – face to face
With one ex-member of the aristocracy
There’s no need to feel down
Yeah just take a look around
You’ll see a man who’s just a man
Nothing more
A king without a crown

I am an avid Mac-user, nerd, musician, freelancer, and gamer. Ask me about my collection of M:TG cards! I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
