Fin de la Vida

After Viva la Vida by Coldplay

 

I used to rule the world

Pulling strings made of false pearls

Now in the morning I wake up alone

Then sweep the streets I used to own

 

No more to roll the dice

Or feel fear in my enemy’s eyes

Or listen to the crowds sing

For this old king is dead and it all means nothing

Now I see who holds the key

To the glory beyond me

As my castles return to the sand

And I bow down rather than make a stand

 

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing

Roman cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror, my sword, my mine field

You have all bets covered, the end game revealed

And for some reason I can’t explain

Once You’ve come there was never

Never another word

And I no longer rule my world

 

It was a wicked and wild wind

Blew down the doors and let You in

Shattered windows, the sound of drums

People can’t believe what I’ve become

Now I’ve stepped forth to meet my fate

And there’s nothing to do but wait

Trembling on the end of a frayed string

A spent man who was a puppet king

 

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing

Roman cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror, my sword, my mine field

You have all bets covered, the end game revealed

And for some reason I can’t explain

I know St. Peter won’t call my name

We’ve got trouble beyond words

And I no longer rule my world

 

Baba Baba Baaaba [x5]

 

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing

Roman cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror, my sword, my mine field

You have all bets covered, the end game revealed

And for some reason I can’t explain

I know St. Peter won’t call my name

Never another word

And I no longer rule my world
