"King For A Day" as written by and John William Feldmann....
There's no way
I'm coming back to you
I've just got to say
That everything we did is through
You tried to undermine
The better ranges of my nature
But soon you're going to find
You should have started talking straighter
Now don't you worry
I won't put you down
I'm in no hurry, baby
To see you go to ground
Because it's true what they say
You know it's true what they say
You're only king for a day
I guess you're happy that way

Well there's no hope
For peace and reconciliation
You're quick to play your hand
But what you haven't learnt is patience
So look before you leap
To tell the world your colored story
It's clear your talk is cheap
You'd do anything to get your glory
So spread your wings and fly
There is no doubt
You're so sorry inside you've got something to shout about
Because it's true what they say
You know it's true what they say
You're only king for a day
I guess you're happy that way

And there's no love
Ever to be lost between us
I guess this is because
The damage that you've done is so grievous
So I hang my head
To dwell on what might have been
But what you left instead
Is pieces of a broken dream

Now don't you worry
I won't put you down
I'm in no hurry
To see you go to ground
Because it's true what they say
You know it's true what they say
You're only king for a day
I guess you're happy that way

So spread your wings and fly
There is no doubt
You're so sorry inside you've
Got something to shout about

Because it's true what they say
You know it's true what they say
You're only king for a day
I guess you're happy that way

Don't you see that you're only king for a day
You must believe that

    General CommentIt was his ex-band member, he was the bassist. He left the band and said JK was a slave driver and hardly gave the rest of the band any money/thanks etc. So it was kind of a jab at him, go JK I say.

    General CommentIt's purely about Stuart Zender, it's nothing to do about girlfriends. By the way it's called King for a Day, not Queen for a Day. Lol

    General CommentI think he's singing about his ex-gf or just a friend of him, who was a kind of ...sheep more. well that kind of ppl who think they can be good and popular and stuff. But he knows that she'll find out what she did later, when it's too late. Anyway, he's still angry but he won't start revenge because "paybacktime" 'll come itselfs

    no?

    just give it a try then

    General CommentThe name of the bassist was Stuart Zender. Actually, Stu had the valid point. Jay did get all the credit when Travelling Without Moving was released and it was actually such a big hit because of the music and in a funk band, nobody has all the great ideas. So Stu left and fell off the map...and Jay has corrupted the sound....how sad.

    General CommentJay is actually a bit of a prick when he's not on stage. Stuart is incredibly underrated and a f'ing brilliant bass player.
