    Lyrics
    If I ruled the world, was king on the throne
    I'd make peace in every culture, build the homeless a home
    I'm not runnin', for Congress or the President
    I'm just here, to tell the world, how my story went
    You see first it was a dream, I was livin' in Rome

    You got me fallin' to the ground
    Turn around, get ready, check out the time
