King of Anything

Keep drinking coffee, stare me down across the table, while I look outside. So many things I’d say if only I were able, but I just keep quiet and count the cars that pass by.

You’ve got opinions, man. We’re all entitled to ‘em, but I never asked
so let me thank you for your time, and try not to waste anymore of mine.
And get out of here fast.

I hate to break it to you babe, but I’m not drowning
There’s no one here to save

Who cares if you disagree? You are not me
Who made you king of anything? So you dare tell me who to be? Who died and made you king of anything?

You sound so innocent, all full of good intent. Swear you know best
but you expect me to jump up on board with you and ride off into your delusional sunset

I’m not the one who’s lost with no direction, but you’ll never see
You’re so busy making maps with my name on them in all caps
You got the talking down, just not the listening.

And who cares if you disagree? You are not me
Who made you king of anything?

So you dare tell me who to be?
Who died and made you king of anything?

All my life I’ve tried to make everybody happy while I just hurt and hide
Waiting for someone to tell me it’s my turn to decide

Who cares if you disagree? You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So you dare tell me who to be?
Who died and made you king of anything?
LET ME HOLD YOUR CROWN, BABE.

If Sara Bareilles isn’t a queen, I don’t know who is. I’ve played her new song “King of Anything” on repeat all day.  View the music video here and a video interview with her here.
