      Lyrics for First Aid Kit - "King of the World"

      At ten in the morning
      I was laughing at something
      At the airport terminal
      At nine in the evening
      I was sitting crying to you over the phone
      Well passing the border from a state to another
      Filled with people whom I couldn't help to relate to
      And we stopped a while at a roadside restaurant
      Where the waitress was sitting outside smoking in her car
      She had that look of total fear in her eyes
      And as we drove away from there she looked at me and
      She smiled

      I keep running around
      Trying to find the ground
      But my head is in the stars
      And my feet are in the sky
      Well I'm nobody's baby
      I'm everybody's girl
      I'm the queen of nothing
      I'm the king of the world

      And once you asked me well what's my biggest fear
      That things would always remain so unclear
      That one day I'd wake up all alone
      With a big family and emptiness deep in my bones
      That I would be so blinded, turn a deaf ear
      And that my fake laugh would suddenly sound sincere

      Now I wasn't born for anything
      Wasn't born to say anything
      Oh I'm just here now and soon I'll be gone
      I'm nobody's baby
      I'm everybody's girl
      I'm the queen of nothing
      I'm the king of the world

      Now everyday there's a short intermission
      While I sleep they start dimming the lights
      But I've seen everything I ever want to see
      Screaming "Fire!" in a theater people taking their seats
      Watch it all go down like a stone in a stream
      If you fall for your reflection you will drown in a dream

      Tell me something real
      Tell me something true
      I just want to feel there's something left that I can do
      But I'm nobody's baby
      I'm everybody's girl
      I'm the queen of nothing
      I'm the king of the world
