If I Were King

Album: American Soldier (2009)
  • I have so much more to say, my brother.
    Can you hear me?

    A fool is left to live as the brave ones fall.
    I swear if I were able,
    I would have done the same for you.
    But now you're gone and I wish I were too.

    I spend all my time asking questions,
    How can I pay you back when
    The price you paid was so high, my friends.
    If I were King of all I imagine,
    I would trade all I am
    To have you by my side.

    If I were King.
    I have too much time today, my brother.
    Can you hear me?

    I know where I am, but I still feel lost.
    Please know that I am grateful
    For the years you gave to me.
    Everything's changed, but nothing changes
    For you.

    I won't waste my life asking questions.
    I've seen the horror of war and
    There's so much more for a man who's been
    Where I've been.

    If I were King of all I imagine,
    I would trade what I have
    To have you back at my side.
    If I were King of all I imagine,
    We would both be back home
    Living the rest of our lives.
    If I were King. Writer/s: GEOFFERY WAYNE TATE, JASON SLATER
