The crown prince

It’s hard to be the crown prince,
When the world comes crashing down,
I used to have a future
But that is all gone now,

In my days in school I had many dreams
To be a pilot, a doctor, but never a thief
Gradually time over took me and all of my schemes
Here I stand now with nothing, nothing but grief,

It’s hard to be the crown prince,
When the world comes crashing down,
I used to have a future
But that is all gone now,

I worked hard trying to make some hay,
But it seemed my personality always got in the way
When payday rolled around it had already all gone
I just had to sit and wonder where it all went wrong

It’s hard to be the crown prince,
When the world comes crashing down,
I used to have a future
But that is all gone now,

I was once considered clever, but drank it all to hell,
Leaving me with nothing, at least nothing I could sell
I needed to get away, break free from the mould,
To try get something on to which I could hold,

It’s hard to be the crown prince,
When the world comes crashing down,
I used to have a future
But that is all gone now,

How do you rebuild a kingdom when time’s not on your side
When the water is rising and you can’t out pace the tide,
When you’re running as fast as you can, but still can’t get away
When all you could possibly want is one more yesterday,

It’s hard to be the crown prince,
When the world comes crashing down,
I used to have a future
But that is all gone now,
