We paint the sky
The brightest blue
With wooly dots of clouds
You take my hand
You play around
In the greenest grass

Today you crown me your Prince
With your blinkin' eyes

We play hide 'n seek
In the meltin' sun
We're both invisible
You take my hand 'n
Drag me through this
Unsuspicious crowd

Today you crown me your Prince
With your tender lips

Jump with me
Hold onto the meltin' sun

Climb upon a cloud
Let the whole world pass us by

Today you crown me your Prince
Your Majesty

Today you crown me your Prince
And I declare you mine

    Song FactThank you user -creyk- for submitting the "correct lyrics" for this song!! All over the internet there are incorrect versions that show "darts" and "drive" and "crime." The lyrics you submitted here are the exact ones I attempted to add on lots of other websites many years ago after I listened to the song about 1000 times to determine exactly what she is singing. The song comes from the 2011 Flemish movie, "North Sea Texas" or "Noordzee Texas" by Bavo Defume. Once you hear the correct lyrics, especially if you have seen the movie, the words make perfect sense, even with all the metaphors about painting clouds and crowning princes. In the movie, a love story about two young boys, the boys do play around in the grass, and the older boy actually does take the younger boy's hand and "drag" him through an "unsuspicious crowd." As for the beginning lyrics misquoted in so many other places, if you "paint the sky the brightest blue," you might also paint in some "wooly dots of clouds."

    In the movie, I'd say the younger boy's head is in the clouds, since he's obviously head over heels in love with the older boy, his first love. He even saves mementos, he longs for him, wants them to be invisible to everyone else so they can be together. But they play hide-and-seek. The younger boy pursues the older boy, they become friends, eventually have sex, but then the older boy grows up and finally rebuffs the younger boy and drives off with a girl. Years later the younger boy has gotten over him, even throws away all the mementos. But the older boy returns and realizes he loves him, and he's now the one pursuing the younger boy. They "jump" together and "climb upon a cloud" and "let the whole world pass" them by, now able to finally admit their long love for each other. The older boy, "His Majesty," "crowns the younger boy as his "prince" and so after all the ups and downs over the years, the younger boys fairy tale wish finally comes true and he gets to "declare" the older boy is "mine."
