King Me

You can't come with me tonight
The shadows I see behind me are mine
And those footprints that I leave behind
Are alone but I don't mind
Nice as you are I just can't stay
Black and white world I live in grey
I'm alone now and it's best this way
I'm the vagabond king for the rest of my days

I'll be yours not for forever
So don't love me for forever
So don't go looking for me dear
Come tomorrow I'll be a thousand miles from here

I'll pack up all my hopes and dreams
I'm the traveling man yeah you'd better believe
Love hobo by fate and soon you'll see
It's not my choice, it's destiny

(Repeat Chorus)
