One Direction – Viva La Vida lyrics

Liam: I used to rule the world seas would rise when I
Gave the word now in the morning I sleep alone sweep the
Streets that I used to own.
Zayn: I used to roll the dice feel the fear in my enemies
Eyes listen as the crowd would sing now the old king is
Dead long live the king
All: I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing roman cavalry
Choirs are singing be my mirror my sword and sheald my
Missionaries in a foriegn field
