King of Anything
by 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
We’re all entitled to ‘em
But I never asked
So let me thank you for your time
And try not to waste any more of mine
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 to 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 up on board with you
And ride off into
Your delusional sunset
I’m not the one who’s lost
With no direction oh oh
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

(Chorus)
Who cares if you disagree
You are not me
Who made you king of anything
So you dare to tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything

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)
Who cares if you disagree
You are not me
Who made you king of anything
So you dare to tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything

Who cares if you disagree
You are not me
Who made you king of anything
So you dare to tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything

Let me hold your crown babe
