A Song I’d Like to Dedicate to My Mom

…among others in my life…past,present, future, who have, will or may try to tell me how to live my life etc….like the song says…”who died and made you king of anything?”

Sara Bareilles – King of Anything

Ow ow ow ooow

Keep drinkin 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
But I never asked
So let me thank you for your time
And try not to waste any more of mine
And 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

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

You sound so innocent all full of good intent
Swear you know best
But you expect me to jump up on board with you
Right off into your delusional sunset

I’m not the one who’s lost with no direction oh
But you’ll never see
You’re so busy making map
And put name on them in all caps
You’ve got the talking down
Just not the listening

Who cares if you disagree, you are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So you dare 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 waitin for someone to tell me
It’s my turn to decide

(ow ow ow ow ooow)

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

Let me hold your crown babe
O-oooooh aaaaaaah
