Living in Exile

Song is from The Hot Rock CD/LP, which is available at Kill Rock Stars.
Official lyrics come with the album; I have modified them so that the lyrics posted here
reflect what I actually hear the band singing in the song.
Because that took me lots of time and effort, please do let me know
if you would like to use the lyrics I have posted here on your site.
Or even just reference my site on yours. Thanks!

once I had all, had everything
the real princess, the ruling queen
I walked with arrogance, with vanity
but I made sure my heart
they wouldn't see

one day I woke up, all was gone
the castle, kingdom, all were lost
now I have nothing left
nowhere to go
and my heart that's full of doubt
is all I've left to show

she is living in exile
(and if I go away cannot forget just everything)
she is living in exile
(and when I go away I still remember everything)

I'll walk 3,000 lonely miles
I'll start a new life on my own
don't know what I'm waiting for
but when it comes
you know that I'll be ready
a new woman

she is living in exile
(and if I go away cannot forget just everything)
she is living in exile
(the way I go away I still remember everything)
nothing left for denial
(and if I go away cannot forget just everything)
she is living in exile
(and when I go away I still remember everything)

I know my head is my worst enemy
swallowed too much of it and started to believe
I know my heart is my worst enemy
swallowed too much of it and started to believe
