I've had money
And I lost it
Seen an ocean
Nearly crossed it

I have been to another world
And I have returned
And for every high joy
A hard lesson learned
But when love comes tumbling down

I will wear a Crown
I've had power
I've used and abused it
Tasted glory

I have wooed and refused it
Tried to live in a sacred way
I did and I did not
And for everything I lost
There's been something else I got
And when love comes tumbling down

I will wear a Crown
I've been up and I've been down
Sometimes almost level with the ground
Once in every hundred years I can
Still remember who I am

Been in danger
Tried to face it
Saw a mirage
And for seven years I chased it

I'm not through with my changes
I've got a long way still to run
I'm gonna play this show
Even if nobody comes
And when love comes tumbling down
When love comes tumbling down
When love comes tumbling down
I will wear a Crown
