Viva la vida Songtext

Viva la vida Songtext

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 own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear 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 walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field


For some reason I can't explain
Once you go there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and 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 Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won′t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world


I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can′t explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

I won't question the transcription skills of the creator of the lyrics, but I believe that the line "roman cavalry choirs.." is wrong. I think it's "roman catholic choirs...". This one word was sung very unclear and you could hear both versions out if you wanted, but catholic just makes more sence for me, as the whole song has this religious (Jerusalem, Missionaries in a foreign field) touch and the catholic boy-choirs from rome are some of the most famous in the whole world.
