love can be a royal menace
been reminiscing
you were pretty, penniless
with looks to kill a king
you were blind
begging for change
well, just you wait and see
now we're making empty threats
pawn their vacancy

we’d been ruling for years
really, what a waste
we’ve been burnin’ love letters
all that we wrote, erased
we would turn in the manifest
now that we both could read
we've been learning
the terms we committed to
were meant for memory

like the sky
you were over me
i know we needed space
i'd go to mars
and make a record
curiosity
i’ll find another
life is ordered now
for the exploring
if you can take my chaos, baby
i’ll map your terrain

we’ve been ruling for years
i’m never far away
we’ve been touring
and tearing the veil
well since the millenium
baby girl, someday, someday
‘cos i’m never far away
we’ll be burnin’ the sheets
we'll save on laundry

back in 1980, maybe
nah, i was never innocent
i’ve been burnin’ the papers
since 1997
we've be drinkin’ free today
drunk on liberty
i’ve been learning
been earning my confidence
and my confidantes
