Viva La Vida

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 enemies 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 know there was never, never an honest word

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

And that was when I ruled the world

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringings

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

Coldplay "Viva La Vida"

Nunca me ha gustado mucho Coldplay. Quizás una o dos canciones, pero me parecían ñoños y sosos, y me cansaba después de escucharlos 3 veces seguidas.

Sin embargo, con esta canción, no sé que me pasa, que me tiene como embobada. Puede ser la melodía, o la letra, o ambas cosas ... pero no dejo de escucharla dentro de mi cabeza.

Puede ser que me hago mayor. Si construyes tus castillos sobre pilares de arena, acabarán cayéndose. Igual es eso, que me hago mayor. Tal vez ahora sí que entiendo las letras.
