Viva La Vida
oleh: Coldplay



I used to rule the worldSeas would rise when I gave the wordNow in the morning I sleep aloneSweep the streets I used to own
I used to roll the diceFeel the fear in my enemies eyesListen as the crowd would sing:Now the old king is dead, long live the king!
One minute I held the keyNext the walls were closed on meAnd I discovered that my castles standUpon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand
I hear Jerusalem bells a ringingRoman cavalry choirs are singingBe my mirror, my sword, my shieldMy missionaries in a foreign fieldFor some reason I can't explainOnce you go there was never, never an honest wordThat was when I ruled the world
It was the wicked and wild windBlew down the doors to let me inShattered windows and the sound of drumsPeople couldn't believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries waitFor my head on a silver plateJust a puppet on a lonely string (Ooooh)Ah, who would ever want to be king?
I hear Jerusalem bells a ringingRoman cavalry choirs are singingBe my mirror, my sword, and shieldMy missionaries in a foreign fieldFor some reason I can't explainI know Saint Peter won't call my nameNever an honest wordBut that was when I ruled the world
Ooooh Ooooh Ooooh Ooooh Ooooh(repeat with chorus)
I hear Jerusalem bells a ringingRoman cavalry choirs are singingBe my mirror, my sword, my shieldMy missionaries in a foreign fieldFor some reason I can't explainI know Saint Peter won't call my nameNever an honest wordBut that was when I ruled the worldOooooooh Oooooooh Oooooooh
