Tom Cochrane All the King's Men Lyrics

Last updated:

Shut your eyes my darling there's nothing you can say
the man in the moon won't fall on you
he doesn't live there anyway
you don't have to be a soldier to fight in your private war
let the blood you might see rain down on me
you don't have to fight no more

there's nothing you can say
there's nothing you can send
there's nothing that can change the facts
not all the king's men

you'll ride upon the stallion
i'll ride upon your mare
we'll ride so far ride so hard
far away from here
when we look back upon the

it all will become so clear
the gates will open up for us
we won't have no more fears

there's nothing you can say
there's nothing you can send
there's nothing that can change the facts
not all the king's men
look away look away

you might be tired and troubled but not today
when they come down upon you
I won't let them get anything on you
and we'll dream away all those fears and troubles may
look away

we both were motherless children
they sent us separate ways
the family you'd seen beat down on you
mine it was okay
I've come to take you back may
save you from this fate
they won't have any more chances
to treat you this way

there's nothing you can say
there's nothing you can send
there's nothing that can change all that
not all the king's men

there's nothing you can say
there's nothing you can send
there's nothing that can change all that
not all the king's men
