Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Tears for Fears Lyrics


Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you

Acting on your best behaviour
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own design
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most

Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I'll be right behind you

So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you'll never, never, never, never need it
One headline, why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

Welcome to your life

Even while we sleep
We will find you
Acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on Mother Nature

Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own design
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most of
Freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever

Everybody wants to rule the world

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I'll be right behind you

So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it

Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision

Everybody wants to rule the world

Say that you'll never, never, never, never need it
One headline, why believe it?

Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever

Everybody wants to rule the world

This song makes me cry, ugh the nostalgia. I remember being a baby and my daddy was playing this on his stereo in his office while I sat in his other office chair

Ryan Hauser

Thanks, now I feel old.

Yeah with everything that happened back in the 80s. The fall of the Berlin Wall, the Falklands war, the Soviet Afghan war, tianamen square, Iran contra scandal, wars that Israel has been involved with, the Olympics, the death of Tito Josef, the rising conflict in Yugoslavia between Serbs, Croats, and Bosnians, etc.

Nostalgia at its finest. I grew up in the 80’s and you don’t realize how time just flies

Chris Blunt

I miss the 80s so much

How lucky. Bet you had no idea how epic of a time you were living in.
