you’re only king once lyrics – beulah

have you seen that moon-faced kid?
that burned out halo hangs right above his head
it’s so hard not to be crushed
when you’re praying for too much
and the stars refuse to shine for you
they do it just to spite
well they know you’re trying to hard

hoping for a little more than just another kiss goodnight
your face is full and paved with lines
your hair’s receding fast and so is your mind
and that lazy eye won’t budg
cuz you’re praying way too much
and don’t take that pill
your head will swell
you’ll only be king once
just once,
you’ll only be king

smile, please smile
i just want you happy
smile, please smile
i just want you happy

and the stars refuse to shine for you
they do it just to spite
well they know you’re trying to hard

smile, please smile
i just want you happy
smile, please smile
i just want you happy
i just want you happy
i just want you happy

/ beulah lyrics
