lyrics

[EMPIRE]

I keep a box of chocolates under my bed to make me feel like a movie star--
I keep this knife in my teeth in case you're not who you say you are

Keep a magic marker spell written down on the soles of my favorite boots
lookin' for the next thing, a good time, get my cake and eat it too

Keep your shows
and your cynical clothes
all the boring talk in between

When you look at my face
don't you make no mistake--
I won't be asleep dream...

I don't wanna be good enough,
or in magazines
don't wanna be no debutante
or homecoming queen...
I just wanna be a Legend--
wanna be conquering--
I just wanna build Empires
because you know

I want I want I want

I want to be King.

Never been one of the boys, ain't never been like one of the girls
I don't care if I can see the moon I know where I stand on the world

Keep my heart on the fire escape, it's callin out in the night--
Valentine on my tomb reads: “It's okay Mom, I'll be just fine.”

Chorus

Nobody dies and says, “I'm glad I didn't try”...
so laugh if you want, but when you laugh try to look me in the eyes

Chorus
