lyrics

Royalty

Shall I compare thee
No that's not fair see
We're all so unique and free
In all the steps we could take

I won't stand in your way dove
No matter what you say love
We're as cozy as a winter glove
And I want to keep it that

The world gets so ugly
With all it's divided loyalties
Can't we sit in sunshine
And talk about what we could share

I'll be your King of Jokes
If you'll be my queen of laughter
And the rest can go screaming in the streets
I'll be your King of Jokes
If you'll be my queen of laughter
And the rest can go screaming in the streets

Shackles and chains
Keep coming around again
Maybe we're really into pain
But I'm too small to know

I'm happy with my road
And you seem happy with your load
And you know that makes me happiest of all

They're standing in different camps
Throwing stones over fences
But we've tunneled through hatred
We've come up for air

I'll be your King of Jokes
If you'll be my queen of laughter
And the rest can go screaming in the streets
I'll be your King of Jokes
If you'll be my queen of laughter
And the rest can go screaming in the streets
I'll be your King of Jokes
If you'll be my queen of laughter
And the rest can go screaming in the streets
