I’m scared that everyone is out to get me. “These days before you speak to me you pause.” “I always see you looking out your window.” “After all, you lost your band, you left your mom.” Now every single crack, every penny that I pass, says I should either leave or pick it up But with every single buck I’ve made I’m saddled with bad luck that came
the moment I was baptized oh when I found out one day I’m gonna die if only I could find my people or my place in life a when they come a’carolin’ so loud, so bright, the theremin will lead us to a chorus where we’ll all rejoice and sing a song that goes:
Oh be calm. Be calm. I know you feel like you were breaking down. I know that it gets so hard sometimes, Be calm. Take it from me, I’ve been there a thousand times. You hate your pulse because it thinks you’re still alive and everything’s wrong It just gets so hard sometimes Be calm.
“I Was Born to Rule” - set to ‘Part of Your World’ from The Little Mermaid.
Edit: It works this time! <3
I was inspired by the latest “Prince Loki” post floating around, and so I spent a good portion of my evening working on these lyrics. I waited until this morning when no one was around to record it, haha.
I’m getting over a cold and this is in a higher range than I’m used to singing in xD (Go Altos!) So I apologize that it’s not as fabulous as some of the fandom songs out there. I hope you like it just the same, though!’
I Was Born to Rule
Look all around Isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think that my world is complete? Wouldn’t you think I’m the boy, The boy who has… everything.
Look at these walls Treasures untold How many wonders can one golden realm hold? Lookin’ around here you’d think, Sure. He’s got everything.
I’ve got family and friends all around me I’ve got treasures and riches galore. You want magic? I’ve got plenty
But who cares? No big deal. I want more.
I want to see as my brother sees. I want to hear, want to hear them cheering. Chanting and singing with joy, Loki our King.
I want to shine in my father’s eyes. I want to see, want to see him smiling As he looks down on me with, what’s the word? Pride.
Up on that throne, hearts that I’ve have won And shown that I’m just as worthy a son Protector and king, hear the crowds sing. I was born to rule.
What would I give if I could live in deserving glory? What would I pay to spend one day loved and adored? I know they’d see, if they’d give me, Just one true chance, I’d outshine my brother. Thoughtful, focused. Not so reckless, ready to lead.
Oh, I’m ready to prove that I’ve got it, too The sense and the wisdom to lead my people What must I do to show and to make them all See?
When’s it my turn? Wouldn’t I love, love to show them just what I’m made of…
Watch and you’ll see They’ll fall to their knees I was born to Rule.
