King for a Day
Crush Lyrics

I'm fresh out of regret
Smoked my last cigarette
Down to the very end like it was the cure
My heads turned upside down
Smile like a party clown
Can't get this coffee down its quarter to four

I don't want to go on about it
But how the hell can I live without it
I could see for miles around
Ah for crying out loud
Every face in the crowd was looking at us
Sweet amazing grace, every time every space
Everything in its place
Like I was king for a day

Out through this window pane
There's no one left to blame
But then its all the same as long as she shows that
Face like a beauty queen
Straight from a magazine
Swear that she's always been the last to know that

This song brings me back to the very early 2000s and z95.3 countdown every Sunday. I always heard it by spanish banks in Vancouver

Marc Cormier

Yeah, it's a pretty wicked song. I met them when they came to my town in Nova Scotia. Do you remember the band Wave, by any chance? I've found their two singles, and they're pretty damn rare I guess.


I remember when Crush came to play a concert in Stephenville , Crossing.,, and it was pouring down rain, when they started playing this song it stopped, From 2:25 - 2:46 is the moment I fell in love with music! was my favorite memory by far !

levi lepp

joleneyoung my favourite part of the song as well. Hardly any instruments but a strong voice presence.

Marc Cormier

Yeah they are. One of the very last shows they ever played around here was in my town. I remember having strep throat and being told by my doctor to not leave the house what-so-ever. Instead, I walked downtown to see them play. Absolutely amazing job. There's no way I was missing it.

I use to love this song! Then my mom told me that Cory was my cousin, and made me love it even more!:)

Kenneth Goudie

Tetford and Lamb were Kings for a Day... I remember Tetford releasing some solo songs back in the late 1990's. He sings like a bird... I'd like to find those songs..

Christine Kirby

So good to hear this song again after so long!

Daniel Doucette

Corey is the lead guitarist on Alan Doyle's current tour


@Daniel Doucette They actually just sang this song tonight in Cape Breton with Corey obviously on lead. I completely forgot about this song, but as soon as it started I knew almost every word. Missed this song, and I'm glad I had the chance to hear it live.
