LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
I see flames in your eyes
And I don't recognise what you said, how you said it
Words just terrorize
And my heart radiates but with you, froze to ice
Empty in disguise

[Pre-Chorus]
Keep singing it louder, louder
Break the hearts to win
Just bring yourself higher, higher
Hanging by a string

And there was no love here to save

[Chorus]
So be a king now for a day
And I'll be a queen of my mistakes
And when you sing out all your pain
You wear the crown

Feel no shame in your, your, your, your kingdom
Don't, don't, don't, hide in your kingdom
Your, your, your, your kingdom
Don't, don't, don't, woah

[Verse 2]
Did you think you were fair
To say you never cared
Now you sit on your throne
A lonely love affair

[Pre-Chorus - Variation]
Keep singing it louder, louder
To break the hearts you lose
Just build yourself higher
I got nothing to prove

And there was no love here to save

[Chorus]
So be a king now for a day
And I'll be a queen of my mistakes
And when you sing out all your pain
You wear the crown

Feel no shame in your, your, your, your kingdom
Don't, don't, don't, hide in your kingdom
Your, your, your, your kingdom
Don't, don't, don't, woah

[Chorus]
So be a king now for a day
And I'll be a queen of my mistakes
And when you sing out all your pain
You wear the crown

Feel no shame in your, your, your, your kingdom
Don't, don't, don't, hide in your kingdom
Your, your, your, your kingdom
Don't, don't, don't, woah
