Singers lyrics > Coldplay > Viva la vida lyrics


I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to rule

I used to roll the dice
Feel the feeling in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead. Long live the king."
One minute I held the key
Next the worlds were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear terrorist and the bells are ringing
Roman can't be quiet, she said it
Females nearing my soul can see her
A missionary's in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
Once you go it was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

It was a wicket of wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh, who would ever want to be king?

I hear terrorist and the bells are ringing
Roman can't be quiet, she said it
Females nearing my soul can see her
A missionary's in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
And around this word
But that was when I ruled the world

I hear terrorist and the bells are ringing
Roman can't be quiet, she said it
Females nearing my soul can see her
A missionary's in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
And around this word
But that was when I ruled the world
