ALICIA KEYS - Not Even The King Lyrics

Some people so poor all they got is money
Oh, in darkness
Some peoáą—le wait till they count all their assets
I donÂ’t care what they bring,
They can have everything

They canÂ’t afford what we got,
Not even the king
They canÂ’t afford what we got,
Not even the king

Castles, itÂ’s as almost theyÂ’re good in castles
Surrounded by people they ainÂ’t been afraid,
ThatÂ’s not what they take home

Oh,
I donÂ’t care what they bring,
They can have everything

They canÂ’t afford what we got,
Not even the king
They canÂ’t afford what we got,
Not even the king

All the kingÂ’s horses and all the kingÂ’s men
Charge every ghetto we got
They oáą—en the crown, and they open the throne
But I already got all that I want

All the kingÂ’s horses and all the kingÂ’s men
They came marching through
They offer the world just to get what we got
But I found the world in you
I found a world in you
Of innocence

Your arms around me worth more than a kingdom
Yeah, believe that
But trustÂ’s very real, the kingÂ’s never felt that
Yeah this is the song we sing
We donÂ’t need anything

They canÂ’t afford this
This is priceless
They canÂ’t afford what weÂ’ve got
Not even the king
They canÂ’t afford what we got,
Not even the king
