Lyrics

Well, I used to be a different me staying up all night and day
And when I'd get the call I'd begin to crawl even if I was in pain
My friends could count on me
cos' stubbornly I would not let a good party down
When we were Kings....we controlled the town

There were drinks to drink and laughs to laugh and days that got erased
Yeah it's all a blur and all the hims and hers are just faces I can't place
The bars were full of smoke
The johns were always broke, but that didn't keep us down
When we were Kings, we always shared the crown

This is me now.............................with whispers of the past
This is me now..................and those whispers are fading fast
Those days must've been about twice as long...no more staying out 'til dawn
While others roam the streets, the Kings are fast asleep again

I remember Jim and trouble we got in at the local's seaside dive
And then there was always Bert, that little town flirt ...hell he's lucky to be alive
We always made a fuss
so folks would notice us but now we are home by ten
But when we were Kings, you couldn't keep us in

This is me now.............................with whispers of the past
This is me now..................and those whispers are fading fast
Those days must've been about twice as long...no more staying out 'til dawn
While others roam the streets the Kings are off their feet again


I relate to my mistakes and the heartaches that they gave us
Just say amen and let then be then because now I couldn't take it



This is me now.............................with whispers of the past
This is me now..................and those whispers are fading fast
Those days must've been about twice as long...no more staying out 'til dawn
While others roam the street the Kings are fast asleep again
Here's a toast to the former Kings and Queens...... my old friends

Clean cut production and performance.

Really good piece that captures nostalgia about as well as it can be captured. Well instrumented, well sung and well arranged.

Nice, easy-going country song. The story is well-told, clearly presented and the rhymes are fresh. Great hook, expertly crafted lyrics. Terrific harmonies. Great bridge. Chorus is so singable. Flawless production; crystal clear vocals. What's not to like about this song?

I like that you created an old school country song. It had a nice pace and the lyrics fit country very nicely. Classic country.
