I’m watch them all leaves sweet sunshine
Wave back
Playin like cars that open the funk
Rhythms will fall behind
It all gets so crazy
It sense attached to
The same old lie
But I’m not lie
Rain this fire
All night

You save the world everytime you walk in the room
What you do
You alone could save our soul
Just your smile makes me think that I could
Kill the king, Kill the king
Just your laugh makes me know that I could
Kill the king, kill him

[Scat]
Brain brain, they fall
All lay down, oh
Shut up and sing, shut up and sing, shut up and sing
Goin’ down
Cause I got some awful news for you
Sunshine, you wave back
And I mean all, gonna leave it
Drive me down

You save the world everytime you walk in the room
What you do
If you alone could save my soul
Just your smile makes me think that I could
Kill the king, Kill the king
Just your laugh makes me know that I can

Take the, Take his throne,
Take it my own
I can take his throne

Come on, come on, yea yea
Come on, come on, yea yea
We’re burnin down
Come on, come on, yea yea
Come on, come on, yea yea
Down to the ground

And all the kings horses
And all the kings men
They will get in line

You save the world everytime you walk in the room
What you do
You alone could save our soul
Just your smile makes me think that I should
Kill the king, Kill the king
Just your laugh makes me know that I can
Kill the king, kill him

Yea, Yea
Down to the ground
Yea, yea
Down to the ground
Yea, yea
Down to the ground

Come on come on yea yea
Come on come on yea yea
Burn him down
Come on come on yea yea
Come on come on yea yea
Down to the ground

    General CommentNice you were at the concert in Post Gazette Pavilion? Totally there for both shows. And once Dave and the band blown me away with their jams. Totally worth the money and gas, and the tough ass trafic to see both shows. GO DAVE MATTHEWS BAND

    General CommentWhat's the point of putting this lyric up? The song isn't finished yet. The words will change until they're finalized.

    A better place for these would be this site:

    General CommentI love this song. In my opinion it's about admiring someone and everytime you see them it makes everything in the world right for that moment in time. I'm not sure why he wants to kill the king, but off with his head!

    General CommentI agree with tydeus. I think that everything in the world it right now that moment, and it's such a powerful feeling that he feels that he could take over the rule of being king because thats how she makes him feel. LOVE DMB FOREVER

    General CommentThis song (The alternate lyrics from 6-6-06 are clearer to me) doesn't seem to be about a love gone bad at all. It's more like being in love with someone and knowing that they can make everything okay..."Save the world every time you walk in the room." I think "Kill the king, kill the king" might be implying that the person that he loves not only makes him believe that everything is okay, but gives him the strength to take control of his own life.

    General CommentI don't think this song has to do with religion or the "christians progress of renewing their soul or mind"...if you listen to Dave at all, its pretty obvious that he's agnostic (look at the lyrics to You Never Know). It seems like this song is about being very in love with someone. I agree with Slakker
