Kings
Clint Lowery Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've been through hell just for this
I had my say, I found my way
Even though I came down for it
We're dying at the bottom but we lived
The bottom, but we lived like kings

I'm coming out, breathing fire
You gotta love the thieves and liars
They're hanging on every word
We're tearing down the walls inside
We're waking up with dirt filled eyes
And everyone knows it goes on and on and on, again

Break it, break it to see you can take it
Take it from me, you can make it
'Cause I'll be right by your side

I've been through hell just for this
I had my say, I found my way
Even though I came down for it
We're dying at the bottom, but we lived like kings
I've been through hell just for this
I had my say, I found my way
Even though I came down for it
We're dying at the bottom but we lived
The bottom but we lived like kings

I'm fighting off the angry hearts
They tear apart the things we love
I know you want blood, you can't hide it
The worst part, we needed
The darkness, we feed it
The scar that you see, you know that it's better to bleed

I've been through hell just for this
I had my say, I found my way
Even though I came down for it
We're dying at the bottom, but we lived like kings
I've been through hell just for this
I had my say, I found my way
Even though I came down for it
We're dying at the bottom but we lived
The bottom but we lived like kings

I've been through hell just for this
I had my say, I found my way
Even though I came down for it
We're dying at the bottom, but we lived like kings

I've been through hell just for this
I had my say, I found my way
Even though I came down for it
We're dying at the bottom but we lived like kings
I've been through hell just for this
I had my say, I found my way
Even though I came down for it




We're dying at the bottom but we lived
The bottom but we lived like kings
