King The Kid Tale Of A Secret Admirer

You, ya don’t even know it

there’s not a day

that I cannot stop thinking of you

Running round in my head

but you’re not with me tonight, not with me tonight

I’m playing your game and doing everything right

Someday you’ll thank me for making you mine

You’re hot stuff, love, it drives me crazy,

you’ve got me in the palm of your hands

I’m strung out, you’re my addiction

let me take you in

because I can’t live without

You, are stuck in a fairytale

but I know

that my kiss can break the spell

you’ve always been under

until the clock ticks midnight

your slipper won’t fit right

Let your hair down

I’m outside the castle tonight

Someday you’ll thank me for making you mine

You’re hot stuff, love, it drives me crazy,

you’ve got me in the palm of your hands

I’m strung out, you’re my addiction

let me take you in

’cause I BELIEVE

You’re hot stuff, love, it drives me crazy,

you’ve got me in the palm of your hands

I’m strung out, you’re my addiction

let me take you in

because I can’t live without

You know I want you, yet you pass me by

cause deep down you know that you’re only involved

with the ones who break your heart in two pieces onto the floor

King The Kid I’d Do Anything At The Rock Show On Ocean Avenue

There’s a place off Ocean Avenue

Where I used to sit and talk with you

We were both 16 and it felt so right

Sleeping all day, staying up all night

Staying up all night

There’s a place on the corner of Cherry Street

We would walk on the beach in our bare feet

We were both 18 and it felt so right

Sleeping all day, staying up all night

Staying up all night

If I could find you now things would get better

We could leave this town and run forever

Let your waves crash down on me and take me away

There’s a piece of you that’s here with me

It’s everywhere I go, it’s everything I see

When I sleep, I dream and it gets me by

I can make believe that you’re here tonight

That you’re here tonight

If I could find you now things would get better

We could leave this town and run forever

I know somewhere, somehow we’ll be together

Let your waves crash down on me and take me away

I’d do anything

Just to hold you in my arms

To try to make you laugh

Cause somehow I can’t put you in the past

I’d do anything

Just to fall asleep with you

Will you remember me?

Cause I know

I won’t forget you

I fell in love with the girl at the rock show

She said “what?” and I told her that I didn’t know

She’s so cool, gonna sneak in through her window

Everything’s better when she’s around

I can’t wait til her parents go out of town

I fell in love with the girl at the rock show

with the girl at the rock show

with the girl at the rock show

(I’ll never forget tonight)

with the girl at the rock show

(I’ll never forget tonight)

with the girl at the rock show

King The Kid A Song For Brittany

Always looking for a better

Way to hold together

The crack that separates the end from the start

But all her doubts wear her out

And she drives just to breathe, drives just to breathe

But is it madness, that keeps her stuck on the ground

And in her silence, she really begging for sound

She left behind

Simple times

Growing up way too fast

But now there’s nothing holding her back

So enoughs, enough

Enough live free

You’re in control

Life’s a roller coaster under city lights

And the blur

It makes you wonder, (you wonder)

Everything you’ve left behind has helped you find

You are so much stronger

Everybody’s heart breaks, everybody falls down

Sticks and stones baby won’t break your bones

You think you’re on your own

Well Brittany, you’re not alone

So it smells of wine and cigarettes

She broke another promise

The pressures building up

Around and around

She’s worn out

From a town

That’s been holding her in, holding her in

But is it madness, that keeps her stuck on the ground

And in her silence, she really begging for sound

Shes at a loss

For a cause that’s been dragging her down

But now there’s nothing holding her back

Life’s a roller coaster under city lights

And the blur

It makes you wonder, (you wonder)

Everything you’ve left behind has helped you find

You are so much stronger

Everybody’s heart breaks, everybody falls down

Sticks and stones baby won’t break your bones

You think you’re on your own

Well Brittany, you’re not alone

Well Brittany, you’re not alone!

You know what you want,

You know what you need

No need to stay in New Jersey

Pull your hopes out of your dreams to where they belong

To where they belong.

Life’s a roller coaster under city lights

And the blur

It makes you wonder, (you wonder)

Everything you’ve left behind has helped you find

You are so much stronger

Everybody’s heart breaks, everybody falls down

Sticks and stones baby won’t break your bones

You think you’re on your own

Well Brittany, you’re not alone.

King The Kid Live. Love.

Locked up in your bedroom

in your own reality

you’re feeling all alone

turned off your phone so you can breathe

You put your headphones on

and turn it up

you know the

perfect song

to sing along

And you’re still

reflecting on a broken mirror

but you could look away

and see everything

is not what it seems

Live it up,

yea some times are tough

when you’ve had enough

remember you’re loved

Live in love

and you’ll be alright

cuz life isn’t just black white

move on from the thoughts that hurt you

live in love

you live and you learn

you’re more than you though you were

You’re stuck in an emotion

hidden by your sleeves

but if anybody knew

the things that you do

you’d be reminded what you mean

So much left in hopes to live for

every day’s a day to look towards,

live it up, live in love

Keep your head up

Hanging by a thread

Live it up, Live in love

King The Kid I Write Sins Not Tragedies

Oh,

Well imagine,

As I’m pacing the pews in a church corridor,

And I can’t help but to hear,

No, I can’t help but to hear an exchanging of words:

“What a beautiful wedding! What a beautiful wedding!” says a bridesmaid to a waiter,

“And, yes, but what a shame, what a shame the poor groom’s bride is a whore.”

I chime in with a

“Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door?!”

No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things

With a sense of poise and rationality.

I chime in,

“Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door?!”

No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things

With a sense of…

Well in fact,

Well I’ll look at it this way,

I mean technically our marriage is saved

Well this calls for a toast

So, pour the champagne

Oh! Well in fact,

Well I’ll look at it this way,

I mean technically our marriage is saved

Well this calls for a toast,

So, pour the champagne, pour the champagne

I chime in with a

“Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door?!”

No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things

With a sense of poise and rationality.

I chime in,

“Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door?!”

No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things

With a sense of poise and rationality again.

I chime in,

“Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door?!”

With a sense of poise and rationality.

King The Kid T.P.S.

Where’d we park the car?

have we lost our minds?

there’s a melody

and a beat inside

Partied NYC

woke in Tennessee

endless drinks on me

with my fake ID

Do we run away

or take a chance now

Do we run away

or hit the town now?

Downtown Baby,

we’re gonna go downtown baby

just take my hand and

don’t look back now

downtown Baby

’til we see the light

Rock and roll

on the radio

sittin’ on a throne

cause we’re in the zone

No celebrity shot

drink your cup, we’re hot

hey its Miley Cyrus

how’d she get on the list

I’m an animal WOO

at a petting zoo

now it’s 20 past 4

so let’s hit the dance floor

Do we stay awake

and head to my place

Do we stay awake

or do it all over again

I wanted to party all night long

and nothing can stop me

living a party song

I’m breaking the rules now

and every night is like a Friday night

Like a Friday night

(talking, cheers)
