new york, she used to hold me like a mother
but now she just throws me to the lions and the wolves
i remember your face
it stares at me like the hero

long ago i was king of your world
you held me close and i made you feel
like you were protected from the forces of nature

but when i close my eyes late at night
baby, i'm the king, i'm the king of your world
and you stare at me like someone who
someone who will crumble with the flesh and blood
and i'm asking you, can you still love me
after all the hell that i put you through
i was mad enough to break your heart
baby, i'm the king and they're never gonna take me alive
take me alive

damned in the country, damned in the city
damns will be the work of your hands
the work of my hands was the worth of my world
the worst of my life

and once upon a time i was king of your world
you held me close and i made you feel
like you were protected from the forces of nature

but when i close my eyes late at night
baby, i'm the king, i'm the king of your world
and you stare at me like someone who
someone who will crumble with the flesh and blood
and i'm asking you, can you still love me
after all the hell that i put you through
i was mad enough to break your heart
baby, i'm the king and they're never gonna take me alive
take me alive
take me alive

but when i close my eyes late at night
baby, i'm the king, i'm the king of your world
and you stare at me like someone who
someone who will crumble with the flesh and blood
and i'm asking you, can you still love me
after all the hell that i put you through
i was mad enough to break your heart
baby, i'm the king and they're never gonna take me alive
take me alive
take me alive
