Song Description

It's a song about not being as successful as you had hoped. It has splashes of frustration, bitterness and humour, but concludes with new hope for the realisation of those dreams. It's a reflection on expectations, potential and achievement.

Story Behind the Song

It spawned from a fleeting sense of betrayal that we were promised the world, and yet actually given so little, either for free or through hard work.

Lyrics

Disappointed
Not as planned
If I look bored
It's 'cause I am
Most of my dreams
Unfulfilled
Domestic chores
Have lost their thrill

Satisfied
Maybe more, or less

We were told
We could be kings
Soar the skies
Upon our wings
We were sold
A thousand lies

My daily life
Is ordin'ry
It underwhelms
Both you and me
I go to work
To value add
There must be more
Than what I have

Satisfied
I suppose, I guess

We were told
We could be kings
Soar the skies
Upon our wings
We were sold
A thousand lies

We were told
We could be kings
To aim high
For everything
A fool's gold
Before our eyes

I can't help but feel
That we were misled
By the stories poured
Into our young heads
Can I make a difference

I'd hoped for
Something so much more

We were told
We could be kings
Soar the skies
Upon our wings
We were sold
A thousand lies

So why can't
We still be kings
Soar the skies
Upon our wings
Give me one
Good reason why

So why can't
We still be kings
And aim high
For everything
Give me one
Good reason why
