Broken King: Love Songs For Adults

Broken King W/Lyrics

Written By Ezra Vancil


A new video from the album You. One of my own personal favorite productions from the album. The video was put together from footage of me, Kent Smith (the piano player) and Lori Martin (bass and vocals) form our time in my own studio in Dallas, and my favorite Austin studio, Congress House.


i got everything I’d ever need
but I need you now more than I ever dreamed
the week it wet my appetite
for a feast alone on a Friday night

the ocean and the beach are one
like the mountains and the setting sun
there's a cabin that's way up high
where i’ll drink the potion in your eyes

baby babe I'm gonna let you down
like every man, i can’t be found
oh but I can make you dream
as you kneel beside your broken king

the world can keep their righteousness
‘cause, in sin i found the master's kiss
oh kids go play with your toys n friends
‘cause your mother's mine till she feels again

do I make you feel safe my dear
like the world can never find us here
when i lay your breast across my needs
that's where I find the hope that I'll find me

baby babe i’m gonna let you down
like everyone I just want to be found
oh but you can make me dream
as you kneel beside you broken king

from 9 in the morning till 2 pm
we could live a life from birth to end
rest your mind on a sheepskin rug
i don’t say i love cause it’s not enough

I won’t be somebody's fool
if you run around like a kid in school
babe you know we just all fuck up
and we count our fears more than our luck

baby babe i’m gonna let you down
like every man i can’t be found
oh but i can make you dream
as you kneel beside your broken king

I thought you were the fountain
(but) the ocean couldn't hold you
We climbed up on a mountain
Where my kingdom is to know you

baby babe I’m gonna let you down
Just like everyone I just want to be found
oh but I can make you dream
as you kneel beside your broken king

baby babe I'm gonna let you down
like, everyone, I got a broken crown
oh but I can make you dream
As you kneel beside your broken king
As you kneel beside your broken king
as we kneel beside our broken king
