King of Anything - Sara Bareilles

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 
And we're 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

Chorus ;
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 on board with you
And ride off into you 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


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

Chorus 2x

Let me hold on to your crown babe
