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

Well 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 well what’s 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
And that my fake laugh would suddenly sound sincere

Now I wasn’t born for anything
Wasn’t born to say anything
Oh I’m just here now and soon I’ll be gone
I’m nobody’s baby
I’m everybody’s girl
I’m the queen of nothing
I’m the king of the world

Now everyday 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

First Aid Kit

Some days call to you more than others. The sun is shining, a feeling of optimism is flowing through your body. There is a need to move. A need to shake your body; to dance in the sweet delight of life. To sing your heart out, regardless, of how you sound. Too often we celebrate other people, we celebrate their success’s, well what about ours? Our success counts just as much as our friends, family, and loved ones. Don’t shy away from that. Hold your head up high and simply say, ‘Today Is My Day! Kiss the sun with your eyes and soak up all the goodness. For, it is, when we truly celebrate ourselves, nourish our body/mind/soul’s, that we can celebrate an other. Pure, Free, Love.
