Viva La Vida Lyrics

Viva La Vida (玩酷人生) - Coldplay (酷玩乐队)

Written by:Christopher Anthony John Martin/Guy Rupert Berryman/William Champion/Jonathan Mark Buckland

 

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 are 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

 

But 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 are 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

 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh

Hear Jerusalem bells are 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
