Vivat Vita (Viva la vida)

Inglese

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 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'd gone there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world
 
It was a 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 St. Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
 
Ohh...
 
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 St. Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

Vivat Vita

Solebam imperare mundum
Maria surgebant me imperante
Hora matutina nunc dormio solus
Everro vias quas solebam habere
 
Solebam iacere aleam
Sentire metus in oculo hostis
Audire vulgus cantantem
"Nunc rex mortuus, vivat rex!"
 
Ego habui clavem,
Subito muri me occludunt
Invenioque castra mea stare
Super columnis salis et columnis harenae
 
Audio campanas Hierosolymae sonantes
Chori equitatis Romae cantantes
Esto mihi speculum, et gladius et scutum
Legati mei in terra aliena
Aliqua causa quam explicare non possum
Te abito numquam fuit
numquam verbum ullum honestum
Et id fuit quando imperabam mundum
 
Ventus pravus ferusque
Sufflavit ostia sivitque intrem
Fenestras fractas et vox tympanorum
Populus non potuit credere quod ego factus essem
 
Rerum novarum cupidi expectant
Caput meum in argenteo
Pupa cum filo uno
O, quis vellet fieri rex?
 
Audio campanas Hierosolymae sonantes
Chori equitatis Romae cantantes
Esto mihi speculum, et gladius et scutum
Legati mei in terra aliena
Aliqua causa quam explicare non possum
Scio quod St. Petrus non vocabit nomen meum
numquam verbum ullum honestum
Et id fuit quando imperabam mundum
 
O...
 
Audio campanas Hierosolymae sonantes
Chori equitatis Romae cantantes
Esto mihi speculum, et gladius et scutum
Legati mei in terra aliena
Aliqua causa quam explicare non possum
Scio quod St. Petrus non vocabit nomen meum
numquam verbum ullum honestum
Et id fuit quando imperabam mundum
