king of portugal lyrics – al stewart

dreamed i was the king of portugal
in a big four poster bed
n*ble tapestries from wall to wall
and a crown upon my head
bells ring and servants bring
the jewels and the robes
for the night to begin

would you love me forever
if i had everything
would you love me forever
if i were a king

then it seemed that i was travelling
through the granite hills of dao
with a vineyard spread in front of me
in a carriage headed south
night came with the skies aflame
and all that i saw
was all mine to claim


there are those that can tell you
what your fantasies mean
but i don’t feel the need to
understand everything
