Viva la Vida
Coldplay 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 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
And that was when I ruled the world

It was a 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 Calvary 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

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Calvary 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 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

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

Diddier Cofré

Yo solía gobernar el mundo,
los mares se alzaban cuando yo lo ordenaba.
Ahora, cuando llega la mañana, yo duermo solo,
barro las calles que antes solía poseer.

Yo solía tirar los dados,
sentía el miedo en los ojos de mi enemigo.
Escuchaba cómo la gente cantaba:
"ahora que el viejo rey ha muerto, ¡larga vida al rey!"

Por un minuto yo tenía la llave,
al siguiente las paredes estaban cerradas ante mí.
Y descubrí que mis castillos estaban construidos
sobre pilares de sal y pilares de arena.

Escucho que las campanas de Jerusalém están sonando,
los coros de la caballería romana están cantando,
son mi espejo, mi espada y mi escudo,
mis misioneros en un campo extranjero.

Por alguna razón que no puedo explicar
una vez que vas, nunca,
nunca hubo una palabra honesta.
Así era cuando yo gobernaba el mundo.

Fue el viento embrujado y salvaje
que tiró las puertas para dejarme entrar.
Ventanas rotas y el sonido de tambores,
la gente no podía creer en lo que me había convertido.

Los revolucionarios esperan
mi cabeza en una bandeja de plata.
Solo una marioneta con una cuerda solitaria,
oh ¿quién podría querer ser rey?

Escucho que las campanas de Jerusalém están sonando,
los coros de la caballería romana están cantando,
son mi espejo, mi espada y mi escudo,
mis misioneros en un campo extranjero.
Por alguna razón que no puedo explicar
sé que San Pedro no dirá mi nombre (no entraré en el cielo)
Nunca una palabra honesta,
pero eso era cuando yo gobernaba el mundo.

Escucho que las campanas de Jerusalém están sonando,
los coros de la caballería romana están cantando,
son mi espejo, mi espada y mi escudo,
mis misioneros en un campo extranjero.
Por alguna razón que no puedo explicar
sé que San Pedro no dirá mi nombre.
Nunca una palabra honesta,
pero eso era cuando yo gobernaba el mundo.



ASHAR FIERCE

FROM THE CEMETERY OF OUR DREAMS,
FROM OUR ASHES,
WE RISE!
OUT OF HIS DARBAR,
RAISING THE SWORD OF BLUE STEEL,
HE ROUNDS UP ALL THE LOA!
THE BARON FINALLY BECOMES A SQUIRE,
BRINGING ORDER & JUSTICE,
FULFILLING HIS PAPAS WISH!
WITH THE MAGIC OF THE SCRIPTURES FUELLING HIS DNA!
WITH HIS LORD FLOWING THROUGH HIS EVERY VEIN,
THE AVATAR WHISTLES TO HIS WIFE!
HAVVAH THAY
MAMI WATA REUNITES WITH HER BELOVED KALKI!
WITH ALL THE LOVE IN THE UNIVERSE,
DAWOOD & HIS WIFE VAHDA DECLARE,
NO MORE VOODOO!
ONLY AND ONLY BY THE WILL OF OUR BEAUTIFUL LORD,
AL HAY THE EVERLIVING!
THE HOUSE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!
SIIM IH
OOBHYZWLL 🖤❤️🅱️👁️

I used to rule the world
Chunks would load when I gave the word
Now every night I go stow away
Hide from the mobs I used to slay
They once were terrified
Every time I looked into their eyes
Villagers would cheer my way
For a hero I was, that's what they'd say
One minute we had it all
Next our world began to fall
Away from all that it had once become
They all cried for my help, but I stood there numb
