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
Listened 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 is singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
-
For some reason i can't explain
Once you'd gone 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
But that was when i ruled the world
-
Oh, oh, oooh, oh, oh, oh(5x)
-
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
But that was when i ruled the world
