Videos de Coldplay – Viva la vida

Viva la vida” es el segundo sencillo de Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, cuarto álbum de estudio de Coldplay. Fue lanzado el 7 de mayo de 2008 en iTunes para su descarga digital.
La letra de esta canción hace una clara referencia a Luis XVI, el cual fue rey de Francia durante el inicio de la revolución francesa, en la cual el pueblo se alzo contra el gobierno; esto aunque no se dice claramente se puede entender en varias oraciones de la canción. En si la canción es cantada por Rey el cual ve como se desmorona su reinado, y va a ser decapitado.

Letra de Viva la vida – Coldplay
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 sand, 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 not explain
Once you know 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 could not 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 not explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

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 not explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh”
