Just a face among the crowd 
Another ship upon the sea of sweet confusion 
Standing on your toes 
While your jewelry was swaying to the music 
You're a rose among the reeds 
And you're the only one I'll ever need 
And when I look into your eyes 
I know that you will 
Take me to a place I never go 
You send me kisses made of gold 
I'll place a crown upon your curls 
All hail the queen of the world 
Just an ordinary girl 
With an ordinary life that you have chosen 
But you're the fire in the snow 
Though I believe that I'm the only one who knows it 
You never liked to sleep alone 
You left some lipstick on the telephone 
And when I look into your eyes 
I know that you will 
Take me to a place I never go 
You send me kisses made of gold 
I'll place a crown upon your curls 
All hail the queen of the world 
Take me to a place I never go 
You send me kisses made of gold
