Chords
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
C G Once upon a time I had tides to control
AmI had moons to spin
FAnd stars to ignite
Am G And they threw flowers at my feet
FWhen I walked through the town
C G Once upon a time I had lives to protect
AmI had rules to change
FAnd wrongs to set right
Am G And there were people at my side
FAnd there were rivers I could guide
I wanted nothing in return [Pre-Chorus]
FLet me out of here
GGive me back all my dreams
CLet me out of here
AmLet please see the sun
FLet me out of here
GAt least tell me what I did wrong
[Chorus]
C GI'm king of the world
AmChief of the sea
FHigh in the wind
At least I used to be
C GAnd I'm king of the world
AmPlease set me free
FLet me remind them of my promise
CLive my given destiny
[Verse 2]
C G Once upon a time I had fate in my hands
Am FAnd the confidence of a million regimes
Am G And they said, "Brother you're in charge
FWe'll follow anything you say"
C G Once upon a time Father said to me
Am"Child you are everything
FThat you see in your dreams"
Am G And I thought, Jesus, that's the key
FThere are no walls surrounding me
There are no prisons in this life [Pre-Chorus]

[Bridge]
Am F Why are we punished for wanting to explore?
C GWhy am I sitting in this cell?
Am F I was not challenging the system
CI was working for the people
GI just wanted to be better
Am F Why are we punished for wanting to survive?
C GWhy am I locked behind these bars?
Am F Tell the children I'll return to them
CTell them . . . Someone
GLet them know I will be free
G I will not be defeated
G I will stand like a mountain
G And the road will stretch before me
G And they'll know it's time to follow
GAnd we'll lift our eyes
GAnd raise our heads
GAnd face the sun
GAnd tell the future
[Chorus]
C GI'm king of the world
AmLand of the free
FHigh in the sky
The best that I can be
C GAnd I'm king of the world
AmWatch and you'll see
FNothing can stop me from tomorrow
Keep me from my destiny
C GI'm king of the world
Am FI'm king of the world
C CI'm . . . I'm .
