    Re: "I wanna reign over you." What does it mean?

    Hi twilit1988

    1: reign –verb (used without object)
    4. to possess or exercise sovereign power or authority.
    5. to hold the position and name of sovereign without exercising the ruling power.
    6. to have control, rule, or influence of any kind. <possibly this meaning>
    7. to predominate; be prevalent.

    reign definition | Dictionary.com
    2: 1980, 1981, 1982, etc. All the years from 1980 to 1989.

    3: Yes, but 'study at night' is more common.

    4: "Is there any next of kin of him." Try, Does he have (any) next of kin?
