I Am King
Nasty Cherry Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Wake up and remind myself that I′m the fucking king
In the distance, nobody can give me what I need
Steaming up when I'm in the car
I′m vibin' out when I'm in the dark

Always wanna fall apart a hundred thousand times
Happy when I′m running late, I′m always satisfied
Still steaming up when I'm in the car
I touch myself when I′m in the dark

I'm addicted
Hooked on it
When I touch myself
Love is sneaky
Keep it freaky
Or go to hell
(I am the only king)
I′m addicted
Hooked on it
When I touch myself
Not anyone like myself
Why is it so hard to get, hard to get off?

I wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki

I wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki

Melting my surroundings
So they don't mean anything
Standing in the thunder grip and under everything
Sticky butter when I′m in the car
Silent pleasure when I'm in the dark

I'm addicted
Hooked on it
When I touch myself
Love is sneaky
Keep it freaky
Or go to hell
(I am the only king)
I′m addicted
Hooked on it
When I touch myself
Not anyone like myself
Why is it so hard to get, hard to get off?

I wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki

I wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki

I′m addicted
Hooked on it
When I touch myself
Love is sneaky
Keep it freaky
Or go to hell
(I am the only king)
I'm addicted
Hooked on it
When I touch myself
Not anyone like myself
Why is it so hard to get, hard to get off?

I wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick itwith my kiki

I wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki
Wanna kick it with my kiki

And at the end of the day




She knew she′d be just fine

Overall Meaning

The song "I Am King" by Nasty Cherry is all about self-love and empowerment. The lyrics convey confidence and assertiveness by claiming their own power and worth as the king. The opening line "Wake up and remind myself that I'm the fucking king" sets the tone for the song. The singer declares their independence and self-reliance, feeling disconnected from others and not needing anyone to give them what they need.


The following verses describe the singer's indulgence in their own desires, taking pleasure in the simple things in life like being late and touching themselves. The chorus repeats the phrase "I'm addicted, hooked on it, when I touch myself", which can be interpreted as the singer enjoying their own company and embracing their own sexuality. The line "love is sneaky, keep it freaky, or go to hell" encapsulates the idea that love should be unconventional and fulfilling to oneself, rather than conforming to societal expectations.


The last lines of the song "And at the end of the day, she knew she'd be just fine" highlights the importance of self-assurance and the singer's confidence in their own ability to navigate through life and find happiness.
