King For A Day. Thompson Twins. Album Here’s to Future Days. King For A Day Lyrics. I know you well And I can tell Something's on your mind. Cause in your dreams The demon screams I know he's going to hurt you blind. You say you hunger For something you can't get at all And love is not enough anymore. If I was King for just one day I have just one thing to say You know that love is all We need to get us through. And diamond rings And all those things They never sparkle Like your smile. And as for fame It's just a name That only satisfies You for awhile. If I was King for just one day I would give it all away I would give it all away to be with you.

Two different recordings of "King For A Day" were released: The UK single version featured the band's older, more synth-based sound, whilst the American and album versions was the guitar-led Rodgers production and featured some axe work from the Chic leader himself. This was the second US single from the LP Here's To Future Days.
