Shadow King - Once Upon A Time lyrics

Hey!

A boy is born in a bed of thorns
He wears his halo hanging from his horns
City streets out of luck, you lose
To get what you need, you do what you have to do

Now count your blessings, count your tears
Some killing time, some killing years
Talk big, laugh loud; you better back it up
It's the bottom of the river in the bottom of your cup now

Living life in this tenement town
It'll tear you up
It's gonna drag you down
You've been there once
You don't want to go back
It's all been a lie
The world don't work that way

Hey, somebody's knocking
Just taking what I need
And that ain't no crime
Hey, hey, somebody's knocking
Somewhere down the line
Once upon a time

Yeah, yeah, yeah
All right, listen

Tenement town steeped in soul and sin
The word gets round, they're gonna deal you in
But the one-eyed jack, you don't play him wrong
When the dirt goes down, you won't live long

Ain't no life in this desperate town
It'll beat you up
It'll bring you down
You've been there once
Do you want to go back
It's all been a lie
The world don't work that way

Hey, somebody's knocking
Just taking what I need
And that ain't no crime
Hey, hey, somebody's knocking
I've been down before
You won't see me cry, no way!

Hey somebody's knocking
You can take what's yours
What's mine is mine
Hey, hey, sonebody's knocking
Somewhere down the line
Once upon a time

You can't go home again
(Once upon a time)
You walk this world alone again

Ain't no life in this tenement town
It'll tear you up
It's gonna drag you down
You've been there once
Do you want to go back
It's all been a lie
The world don't work that way

Hey, somebody's knocking
Just taking what I need
And that ain't no crime
Hey, hey, somebody's knocking
Now I've been down before
You won't see me cry, no way!

Hey, somebody's knocking
You can take what's yours
What's mine is mine
Hey, hey, somebody's knocking
Somewhere down the line
Once upon a time

Once upon a time
Yeah, once upon a time
Once upon a time
