lyrics

I’m forever in my place
but you are not in yours
I don’t care of my place
but you’re content with yours
it’s like heaven decided
that my fate is pain
while you remain in control
of your game
and you’re good at it too

cos when it comes down to it
I don’t think I belong
in this world of yours
where the good succeed
and the bad people don’t

cos the measure of a man
might be hard to understand
when we don’t even set where we are born

yet I’m not forever hopeless
like one might think
I put my faith in some other place
in some other King

it’s like heaven decided
that I won’t be alone
even amidst all this chaos
of the world you call your own

cos when it comes down to it
I don’t think I belong
in this world of yours
where the good succeed
and the bad people don’t

cos the measure of a man
might be hard to understand
when we don’t even set where we are born
and we have not seen the corners of it all
we can’t explain the power of a song
and even though we’ve tried
we can’t make up our minds
about the reasons behind it all
