Morissette, Alanis - King Of Pain Lyrics




There's a little black spot on the sun today
It's the same old thing as yesterday
There's a black hat caught in the high tree top
There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain.
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain.

There's a little black spot on the sun today that's my soul up there
It's the same old thing as yesterday that's my soul up there
There's a black hat caught in a high tree top that's my soul up there
There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop that's my soul up there
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain.
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain.

There's a fossil that's trapped in a high cliff wall that's my soul up there
There's a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall that's my soul up there
There's a blue whale beached by a springtide's ebb that's my soul up there
There's a butterfly trapped in a spider's web that's my soul up there
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain.
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain.

There's a king on a throne with his eyes torn out
There's a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt;
There's a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
There's a skeleton choking on a crust of bread.

There's a red fox torn by a huntmen's pack that's my soul up there
There's a black winged gull with a broken back that's my soul up there
There's a little black spot on the sun today
It's the same old thing as yesterday
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain.
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain.
King of pain
King of pain

Morissette, Alanis King Of Pain Comments
  1. Mario Mamamia

    God bless all those who are listening to this song in 2020. That means you have a great taste in music.

  2. impeller speed

    Get in your damn lane, this is a joke. Not enough street cred to cover the Police

  3. Charles Woolley

    I was always a fan of The'
    Police version. But, Alanis
    adds something with her
    version. That line does seem
    to some up so much..."It's
    the same old thing as yesterday".

  4. Brazil5D

    This acoustic was her best concert ever imo! Love it!

  5. Marcelo G

    There's a little black spot on the sun today
    Há um pequeno ponto escuro no sol hoje

    It's the same old thing as yesterday
    É a mesma coisa que aconteceu ontem

    There's a black hat caught in a high tree top
    Há um chapéu preto preso no topo de uma árvore alta

    There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop
    Há um mastro com uma bandeira e o vento não vai parar




    I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
    Eu estive aqui antes dentro da tempestade

    With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
    Com o mundo girando círculos em volta do meu cérebro

    I guess I'm always hoping
    Eu acho que estou sempre desejando

    that you'll end this reign
    que você dê fim a esse reinado

    But it's my destiny to be the king of pain
    Mas é o meu destino ser o rei da dor




    There's a fossil that's trapped in a high cliff wall
    Há um fóssil que está preso em um grande penhasco

    (that's my soul up there)
    (É minha alma lá em cima)

    There's a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall
    Há um salmão morto congelado em uma cachoeira

    (that's my soul up there)
    (É minha alma lá em cima)

    There's a blue whale beached
    Há uma baleia azul encalhada

    by a springtide's ebb
    pela maré baixa da primavera

    That's my soul up there)
    (É minha alma lá em cima)

    There's a butterfly trapped in a spider's web
    Há uma borboleta presa em uma teia de aranha




    I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
    Eu estive aqui antes dentro da tempestade

    With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
    Com o mundo girando círculos em volta do meu cérebro

    I guess I'm always hoping
    Eu acho que estou sempre desejando

    that you'll end this reign
    que você dê fim a esse reinado

    But it's my destiny to be the king of pain
    Mas é o meu destino ser o rei da dor




    There's a king on a throne with his eyes torn out
    Há um rei em um trono com seus olhos cheios de lágrimas

    There's a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
    Há um homem cego procurando por uma sombra de dúvida

    There's a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
    Há um homem rico dormindo em uma cama dourada

    There's a skeleton choking on a crust of bread
    Há um esqueleto sufocado por uma casca de pão




    There's a red fox tornb by a huntsman's pack
    Há uma raposa dilacerada pela matilha de um caçador

    There's a black winged gull with a broken back
    Há uma veloz gaivota preta com as costas quebradas

    There's a little black spot on the sun today
    Há um pequeno ponto escuro no sol hoje

    It's the same old thing as yesterday
    É a mesma coisa que aconteceu ontem




    I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
    Eu estive aqui antes dentro da tempestade

    With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
    Com o mundo girando círculos em volta do meu cérebro

    I guess I always hoping
    Eu acho que estou sempre desejando

    that you will end this reign
    que você dê fim a esse reinado

    But it's my destiny to be the queen of pain
    Mas é o meu destino ser a rainha da dor




    I'll always be queen of pain
    Eu sempre serei a rainha da dor

    Pego do vagalume

    I'm getting older. The older people around me are getting even older. A lot of things are dying, and a lot of others are getting born. Life is wonderfully unfair.

Just in case anyone from Grammarly reads this, Congrats, thanks to all the money you've spent on YouTube, with your incessant adverts coming up every few mins - I will NEVER...EVER visit your website!

    Only the very brave would attempt to pull this off and to her credit she did a great job. But that said nothing quite compares to the Police version recorded live for Amnesty International in 1986. Check it out!!

  44. Incognita 13

    I have stood here before inside the pouring rain...
    Her voice and interpretation of The Police's song touches my aching soul, my deepest pain. Love you, Alanis.

    My favorite sting song and yet now I think the lyrics are less than perfect. doesn't it sound like self-pity? Anyway, its my destiny to be the king of negativity and cynicism.

    A mix of self pity and “the world is burning”.

    There's a sale on our gabardine suits today
    They're all thirty percent off from yesterday
    There's Fortrel polyester, leather, wool, and tweed
    Just a Visa or Mastercard is all you need
    We got every color, we got ev'ry shade
    We're located next door to Willy's Fun Arcade
    We got every fabric that was ever made
    But I'm known in this city as the King of Suede

    We got portly and regular and extra-long
    (Is my size up there?)
    We got tailors to fix it if it comes out wrong
    (Is my size up there?)
    We got all kinds of sweatshirts, you can take your pick
    (Is my size up there?)
    With the collars ripped off, like in that Flashdance flick
    (Is my size up there?)

    Our prices are low, my staff is underpaid
    You can buy off the rack or have it custom-made
    And it's all guaranteed to never shrink or fade
    'Cause of my reputation as the King of Suede

    If you need a tuxedo for your junior prom
    (Is my size up there?)
    We can get you the best one that's made in Taiwan
    (Is my size up there?)
    We got jackets with patches on the elbows, too
    (Is my size up there?)
    And we'll sell 'em all factory-direct to you
    (Is my size up there?)

    Well, I never made it past the second grade
    It took all of my life for me to learn this trade
    But my friends are all thinking that I've got it made
    'Cause I'm known the world over as the King of Suede

    There's a two-for-one sale on our three-piece suits
    Check out our suede pajamas and our suede-covered boots
    You can try on our suede underwear if you choose
    Do what you want, but don't step on my blue suede shoes

    King of Suede

    Don't miss out on our giant liquidation sale
    (Is my size up there?)
    Look for our color catalog in next week's mail
    (Is my size up there?)
    There's a sale on our double-knit slacks today
    It's the same old sale as yesterday

    Thirty years in the same location I have stayed
    There I am, right next door to Willy's Fun Arcade
    I got tough competition, but I'm not afraid
    'Cause it's my destiny to be the King of Suede

    King of Suede
    King of Suede
    King of Suede
    I'll always be King of Suede
    I'll always be King of Suede

    The Police original is one of my favorite songs of all time, and this is the only cover of it that I like. I sort of wish I could see the world as a reflection of my inner state the way this song demonstrates, from an earlier age.

    Now I see it all the time.
