What the hell are you standing there for, expecting
me to help you, when I'm down myself
Waiting my saviour, my world is flooding over, there's
no room for air, I can't breathe, I would give a kingdom
for one more day

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a king of your world
I'd give a kingdom, for just one more day

What the hell am I waiting here for, expecting you to
come and give away your life
Just for a moment of my time, have a hole where I
should have a heart, I'm made of wood, I'm falling
apart, I would give a kingdom if I only had you

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a kind of your world
I'd give a kingdom, if I had a heart

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart...

Now I know I will never love you, I'm a man without
a heart, I'm not allowed to feel human feelings
I'm king of the land, I'm a ruler of seas, I'd give it
away in a moment. If I only had one moment

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a king of your world
I'd give a kingdom, if I had a heart

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart...

    General CommentThis is the best speed-metal song I ever heard!!!!

    And it's about love and someone unable to love...
    He could give a kingdom for a heart... If he had a kingdom or a heart...

    General Commentthis song should be an easily-understanding meaning, the character wants her love so badly that he would give anything for her. no need to quote this song, pretty obvious... but still a masterpiece.

    General CommentApperently Tony doesn't even like the lyrics to this song...just what I've heard though. But i love this song, a lot. Though sometimes I'd swear he changes it from a heart, to her heart...but im probally just hearing things!

    General Commentlol i swear those lyrics are wrong. Like the very first verse, impossible to tells its 'What the hell am I waiting here for'... like you can here bits and pieces of the words but lol i swear the lyrics must be wrong. Plus instead of saviour i hear cereal lol.... Maybe i'm just high. Then again saviour would make alot more sense.
