First Aid Kit - King of the World (2012)
Transcribed 18/1-2012 by Jon Malmin (jogusmal@hotmail.com)
Tuning: Standard E (Capo 5th fret!)

Very simple and fun song. The chord progression is the same all the way through,
(except for the short trumpet interludes) so I'm just giving you chords for the first 
few lines. Then you can listen to the song and learn the rest. Don't forget the capo!

Intro: F  C  F  C  F  C  G  G

  F            C             F           C
At ten in the morning I was laughing at something 
F        C      G
At the airport terminal 
    F           C      F       C      F         C   G 
At nine in the evening I was sitting crying to you over the phone 
     F             C             F         C
While passing the border from a state to another 
             F      C                G
Filled with people whom I couldn't help to relate to 

And we stopped a while at a roadside restaurant 
Where the waitress was sitting outside smoking in her car 
She had that look of total fear in her eyes 
And as we drove away from there she looked at me and she smiled 

I keep running around, trying to find the ground 
But my head is in the stars my feet are in the sky 
Well I'm nobody's baby, I'm everybody's girl 
I'm the queen of nothing, I'm the kii--ing of the world 

Interlude backing chords: C  F  C  F  C  F  G  G

And once you asked me well what's my biggest fear 
That things would always remain so unclear 
That one day I'd wake up all alone 
With a big family and emptiness deep in my bones 
That I would be so blinded, turn a deaf ear
And that my fake laugh would suddenly sound sincere 

Now I wasn't born for anything 
Wasn't born to say anything 
I'm just here now and soon I'll be gone 
I'm nobody's baby, I'm everybody's girl 
I'm the queen of nothing, I'm the kiii--ing of the world 

[Interlude again]

Now every day there's a short intermission
While I sleep they start dimming the lights 
But I've seen everything I ever want to see 
Screaming "FIRE!!" in the theater, people taking their seats 
Watch it all go down like the stone in the stream 
You fall for your reflection, you drown in the dream 

Tell me something real, tell me something true 
I just want to feel there's something left that I can do 
But I'm nobody's baby, I'm everybody's girl 
I'm the queen of nothing, I'm the kiii-ing of the world

[Another interlude, then the song ends with a G]
