Viva la Vida (Coldplay) Printable Lyrics – PDF

By Coldplay

Viva la Vida is one of the most famous songs of the British rock band Coldplay. It’s from the band’s  album titles Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, which was released in 2008. The success of the song led it to the top of the U.K. and U.S.A. charts, while in 2009 it won the Grammy Awards for Song of the Year.

Why “Viva la vida”? The title of the song comes for a Mexican artist’s Frida Khalo painting of the same name. Despite her illness that weakened her, it’s through that work that the artist celebrates the joy of life. The song, due to its character, was played or presented by Coldplay on various official occasions, such as at the 2012 Summer Paralympics closing ceremony.

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 a-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 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 a-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-woah, oh-oh,oh
Oh-oh-woah, oh-oh,oh
Oh-oh-woah, oh-oh,oh
Oh-oh-woah, oh-oh,oh

I hear Jerusalem bells a-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

Mmm,mmm,mmm,mmm
Mmm,mmm,mmm,mmm
Mmm,mmm…
