an almighty thud lyrics – we were promised jetpacks

“an almighty thud”

i lost my crown
when it hit the ground
with an almighty thud
i went to pick it up
but revealed my weaknesses to the crowd

and i lost my home
when i lost my throne
to a successor
with far more expansive plans
than i ever did
i abdicated

you’re the last thing i want
i’d love to stay here
you’re the last thing i want
i’d love to live here

i sat in my castle
and i waited on news
from one final battle
that we couldn’t afford to lose
and i whispered suddenly
my greatest fears to anyone who would hear me

you’re the last thing i want
i’d love to stay here
you’re the last thing i want
i’m going to stay here
