Queen Of The World

(Gary Louris / Bob Ezrin)

Just a face among the crowd
Another ship upon the sea of sweet confusion
Standing on your toes
While your jewelry was swaying to the music

You're a rose among the reeds
And you're the only one I'll ever need
And when I look into your eyes
I know that you will

Take me to a place I never go
You send me kisses made of gold
I'll place a crown upon your curls
All hail the queen of the world

Just an ordinary girl
With an ordinary life that you have choosen
But you're the fire in the snow
Though I believe that I'm the only one
Who knows it

You never liked to sleep alone
You left some lipstick on the telephone
And when I look into your eyes
I know that you will

Take me to a place I never go
You send me kisses made of gold
I'll place a crown upon your curls
All hail the queen of the world
