lyrics

Keys To The Kingdom

There was a house of mirrors here
I remember from my younger years
When I accepted mostly everything

I was among the shadows dancing
from the light behind the fancy shades of
Paper velvet lace and macrame

If you listen you can almost hear them sing

Teddy tied a rope on time itself
And he wondered why he swore he felt
A pull upon his shoulder every day

It was the tug of time’s reaction
From his midlife call to action
In a game that only gets old in the end

And these were the keys to the kingdom
This is the place he always wanted to be
Crawling across the floor with broken glass in his knees

Keys to the kingdom

He was smarter than he wished he was
Like a bee who when he heard his buzz
Assumed it strong enough to please the queen

But there was no part of the story
And he knew the words by heart
Where he avoided her intoxicating sting

But he had the keys to the kingdom
This was the place he always wanted to be
Crawling across the floor with broken glass in his knees

Keys to the kingdom

Nobody feels the pain like
You feel it here and now
But just like all the others
This day is gonna end
Just try to understand
Everyone’s trying to find their way through the forest
Before darkness falls

The queen was on her way one rainy day
Left without a smile
It’s hard to see the wisdom pouring down like gold

But like the glass reflects our story
And as the silver shines it’s light
Teddy found a way to crown himself the king
If you listen you can almost hear him sing

But he had the keys to the kingdom
This was the place he always wanted to be
Crawling across the floor with broken glass in his knees

Keys to the kingdom
