Forgive Durden - Meet The King lyrics

King Malka
So you're the boy I've heard so much about from my daughter's open mouth
Well, she's described for me wild fantasies of true love and ancient prophecies
Did you think you could waltz right and steal? (The princess for yourself...)
Seducing her with empty dreams and a rusting ring?
Well I'm the King, it won't be that easy

Anhura
Father, you don't understand...
Adakias
I'm not after your throne or jewels
Anhura
You can't justify demands...
Adakias
Not looking for a crown or holy rule
Anhura
Father, don't you understand?
Adakias
I just want your daughter's heart, you fool
Anhura
You can't hold onto my hand, 'cause I have found my man

King Malka
Daugher, my dear, please open both your ears
There is something not right here
Well, I can't place my finger on it
But this young man's filled with darkness
If you think I'll just sit back and let this slide (You are mistaken...)
I will surely not give up without a fight,
'Cause I'm the King, it won't be that easy

Anhura
Father, you don't understand...
Adakias
I'm not after your throne or jewels
Anhura
You can't justify demands...
Adakias
Not looking for a crown or holy rule
Anhura
Father, don't you understand?
Adakias
I just want your daughter's heart, you fool
Anhura
You can't hold onto my hand, 'cause I have found my man

Adakias
Please, sir, let me say something on my behalf
I love your daughter and she, well, she loves me back

Adakias and Anhura
All we have is love, my King, so let's sing la da da da
All we have is love, my King, so let's sing la da da da
All we have is love, my King, so let's sing la da da da
All we have is love, my King, let's sing

Narrator
Denied by the king and his greed
The pair would indeed be married in secrecy
But before they had agreed when and where to meet
The princess felt queasy and weak, could barely speak

Adakias knew instantly why she was so green
And what had caused the disease, it was his proximity
She was ill from his company, evil's ubiquity
You can't run from your history
Your past will seek you endlessly

He knew the only remedy to her viral malady resided
And abided on the opposite side of the petrous levy
And it's harsh, barbed, concrete peak
So while avoiding the leak of his true identity
Adakias convinced the princess of their leave
They would meet with a specialist and rid her blood of this
He kissed her on the lips and assured her a life long lived
