King of My Heart
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm perfectly fine, I live on my own
I made up my mind, I'm better off bein' alone
We met a few weeks ago
Now you try on callin' me, baby, like tryin' on clothes

Salute to me, I'm your American Queen
And you move to me like I'm a Motown beat
And we rule the kingdom inside my room
'Cause all the boys and their expensive cars
With their Range Rovers and their Jaguars
Never took me quite where you do

And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you're all I want, I'll never let you go
King of my heart, body and soul, ooh whoa

And all at once, I've been waiting, waiting
Ooh whoa, ooh whoa
And all at once, you are the one, I have been waiting, waiting
Body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once

Late in the night, the city's asleep
Your love is a secret I'm hoping, dreaming, dying to keep
Change my priorities
The taste of your lips is my idea of luxury

Salute to me, I'm your American Queen
And you move to me like I'm a Motown beat
And we rule the kingdom inside my room (inside my room, oh)
'Cause all the boys and their expensive cars
With their Range Rovers and their Jaguars
Never took me quite where you do (where you do)

And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you're all I want, I'll never let you go
King of my heart (my heart), body and soul, ooh whoa

And all at once (hey), I've been waiting, waiting (waiting)
Ooh whoa, ooh whoa
And all at once, you are the one, I have been waiting (waiting), waiting (waiting)
Body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once

Is this the end of all the endings?
My broken bones are mending
With all these nights we're spending
Up on the roof with a school girl crush
Drinking beer out of plastic cups
Say you fancy me, not fancy stuff
Baby, all at once, this is enough

And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for
King of my heart, body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once, you're all I want, I'll never let you go
King of my heart (my heart), body and soul (my soul), ooh whoa

And all at once, I've been waiting, waiting
Ooh whoa, ooh whoa (ooh whoa)
And all at once, you are the one, I have been waiting, waiting




Body and soul, ooh whoa
And all at once

Overall Meaning

In this song, Taylor Swift sings about a newfound love that has taken her by surprise. At the beginning of the song, she asserts that she was perfectly fine alone, but after meeting this person, everything has changed. The lyrics suggest that the other person is persistent in pursuing her, constantly trying to win her affections like trying on different clothes. Despite her initial reluctance, she has fallen in love and feels that this person is the king of her heart and soul.


The chorus of the song repeatedly emphasizes that this person is the one she has been waiting for. She describes their love as a secret that she hopes to keep, and she prioritizes it above all else. Taylor celebrates their love by calling herself an American Queen, and the way they move together as a Motown beat. She feels that their love is greater than any other she has experienced, far surpassing that of the boys with their expensive cars. The song continues with Taylor expressing her desire to spend more time with this person, imagining drinking beer with them on a rooftop, and feeling content just being with them.
