Coldplay-Viva la vida

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sweep 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
That was when I ruled the world
(Ohhh)

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 will call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

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 will call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh

Un jour, un hypocrite m’a demander d’écouter cette chanson, il m’a dit que je ne devais plus faire semblant d’aller bien, que maintenant, ça devait aller bien, il m’a dit de me raccrocher à la vie et d’y croire, parce qu’on a tous droit au bonheur, parce qu’il était sûr que ça s’arrangerait… sur le moment, je l’ai cru, et puis, je suis retombée dans la réalité, il ne pouvait que mentir, que jouer, il l’avait fait tant de fois…

Aujourd’hui, je n’ai qu’une envie, quand me mourrai, je voudrai qu’on passe cette musique à mon enterrement…
