neal morse – the man who would be king lyrics

Loading...

as he travels on the beast of burden,
moving up along the mountainside,
as he gazes looking down the valley,
no regrets but his pride.

as he journeys across mountain p-sses
insignificance sweeps over him.
his reflection of the beauty round him.
feeling empty inside.

he is running from his wildest thoughts.
he is running from his everything.
he is looking now to find something,
hoping he could be saved.

he’s searching for the answer now.
it’s something that he’s managed to
avoid up ’til now.
real conviction, that he craves.
he needs to find the answer
sooner than later.

pushed himself to the limits.
he had to strive for all the harder things in life,
but what the cost of giving now?
his life and his time are the only things that he has.

life is not a rehearsal.
all he has is the one chance to get it right.
leaving really is the only way to know.

maybe one day they’ll forgive him what he’s done,
but now the pain of lying too early in the grave.

destiny, no good to hide away.
penance now will be his only way.
understand, no good to run away.
penance now will be his saving grace.

[guitar solo]

he tries to make his peace with god.
all is forgivable but it’s left a little late.
trying something that he’s not.
is it possible to change such a lot?

he’s taken someone’s life away.
there’s not a day goes by.
he regrets what he’s done.
he should have found another way
but the good book says:
an eye for an eye.

in reflecting on decisions that were made.
on the judgements that will haunt him ’til his grave.
no one has the right to take another life
but in his mind he had no choice.
so be it.

destiny, no good to hide away.
penance now will be his only way.
understand, no good to run away.
penance now will be his saving grace.

destiny, no good to hide away.
penance now will be his only way.
understand, no good to run away.
penance now will be his saving grace.

far, far away, the man
who would be king.
far, far away, the man
who would be king.
so far away, the man
who would be king
so far away, the man
who would be king
far, far away, the man
who would be king.
