Auerbach, Dan - King Of A One Horse Town Lyrics

Everyday is just a little white lie
Telling myself I'm gettin' by
I just stay in this room and cry
The snow it covers up the ground
And I can't hear a single sound

I'd turn off the TV and go for a drive
But I can't see there's any signs of life
Except a Christmas tree with blinking lights
I coulda made it but I messed around
I'm a loser with a rusted crown
Scared if I jump in the ocean I might drown

King of a One Horse Town
I'm the King of a One Horse Town
And I barely pull my weight around

I thought about leaving but I don't know
Wouldn't even know anywhere to go
Guess I'll stay on desolation row
Go get stoned and hang around
The beat of my drum is the only sound
I would jump into the ocean but I'm scared I'd drown

King of a One Horse Town
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
And I barely pull my weight around

I'm a King of a One Horse Town
King of a One Horse Town
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
And I barely pull my weight around

  95. Gibran Valadez

    Letra (Subtitulado-Español)

    Cada día es sólo una pequeña mentira blanca

    diciéndome a mí mismo que estoy consiguiéndolo

    sólo me quedo en esta habitación y lloro.

    La nieve cubre el suelo

    y no puedo oír solo sonido

    apagaré la televisión e iré a dar una vuelta,

    pero no puedo ver que hay signos de vida

    excepto un árbol de Navidad con luces parpadeantes

    Podría haberlo hecho, pero cambie de planes

    soy un perdedor con una corona oxidada

    asustado, si salto en el océano podría ahogarme


    Rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    Soy el rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    Y yo apenas tiré de mi peso alrededor


    Pensé en irme pero no lo sé,

    ni siquiera sabría a dónde ir

    supongo que me quedaré en la fila de la desolación,

    ir apedreado y esperar

    el ritmo de mi tambor es el único sonido

    saltaría al océano pero tengo miedo que me ahogaría


    Rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    Soy un rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    Soy un rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    y yo apenás tiré de mi peso alrededor

    Soy un rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    Rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    Soy un rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    y yo apenás tiré de mi peso alrededor

    Rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    Rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    Soy un rey del pueblo de mala suerte

    Soy un rey del pueblo de mala suerte
