    Your from a time of Kings and Queens
    Your beauty does proclaim
    As Queen of Queens you reigned supreme
    The whole world praised your name
    No one could be your equal your master or your King
    Heart of King David, wisdom of his son, your judgements fair and true

    A missed placed soul you seem to be
    Trapped in time with me
    You’re not from around here
    Of this is true

    They should have noticed
    They should suspect
    But few have caught on yet
    You are not from around here
    Of this is true

    When in motion you hesitate
    And wait for the rhythm that accompanies your timeless groove
    With regalness of royalty
    Your every move proclaims your fame
    You’re humble not demanding
    Yet every wish you have obeyed

    You are not from around here
    Of this is true
    Just wanted you to know I knew
