Royals - Bruce Springsteen - Mt Smart Stadium, Auckland 1-3-2014



I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address
In the torn up town, no post code envy
But every song's like:
Gold teeth, Grey Goose, tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashing the hotel room
We don't care
We're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody's like:
Crystal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair
 
And we'll never be royals
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler
You can call me king bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
Let me live that fantasy
 
My friends and I we've cracked the code
We count our dollars on the train to the party
And everyone who knows us knows
That we're fine with this, we didn't come from money
But every song's like:
Gold teeth, Grey Goose, tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashing the hotel room
We don't care
We're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody's like:
Crystal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair
And we'll never be royals
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler
You can call me king bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
Let me live that fantasy
 

We're better than we've every dreamed
And I'm in love with being king
Life is great without a care
We aren't caught up in your love affair
 
And we'll never be royals
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler
You can call me king bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
Let me live that fantasy
