My fall from feeling like the king of the world to what I am now.

I once stood, a king at the top

Never thinking that I’d ever drop

But here I sit for all my lore

Yearning for what was before

 

One false step, I blew my chances

There went all my enchanted dances

I cry in this deafening roar

Yearning for what was before

 

Why is fate so cruel to me?

I thought everything was free

Now here I am, wretched and poor

Yearning for what was before

 

I peer over all these dusty walls

And I contemplate my quick fall

I file all these thoughts into a drawer

Yearning for what was before
