I used to rule the world
我曾经统治世界
Seas would rise when I gave the word
只要我一个口令就能使海水升起
Now in the morning I sweep alone
如今的早晨只剩我独自环顾四周
Sweep the streets I used to own
环视每条曾经属于我的街道


I used to roll the dice
过去只要我转动手中的骰子
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
就能感受到敌人眼中的恐惧
Listen as the crowd would sing:
听著人民传颂著
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"
旧王朝被推翻了!新国王万岁!


One minute I held the key
前一刻我还握著世界之钥
Next the walls were closed on me
下一秒世界却从我手中消失
And I discovered that my castles stand
原来我所竖立的城堡
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand
只是不堪一击的砂塔


I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
我听见耶路撒冷的钟声响起
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
罗马的骑兵唱诗班正在吟唱著
Be my mirror my sword and shield
请成为我的镜子 我的剑与盾
My missionaries in a foreign field
我的传教士流亡在外
For some reason I can't explain
我无法解释原因为何
Once you go there was never, never an honest word
但是只要你来过 将会发现这里没有诚实的语言
That was when I ruled the world
那就是我曾经统治的世界


It was the wicked and wild wind
当时刮起邪恶的狂风
Blew down the doors to let me in.
吹垮所有入口的城门让我进入
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
窗户上震碎的玻璃 发出阵阵巨响
People couldn't believe what I'd become
人民无法置信我成为他们的国王


Revolutionaries wait
革命者伺机而动
For my head on a silver plate
等著我的头颅作为祭品
Just a puppet on a lonely string
我只是绑著一条细弦的傀儡
Oh who would ever want to be king?
噢 谁会想成为这样的国王


I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
我听见耶路撒冷的钟声响起
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
罗马的骑兵唱诗班正在吟唱著
Be my mirror my sword and shield
请成为我的镜子 我的剑与盾
My missionaries in a foreign field
我的传教士流亡在外
For some reason I can't explain
我无法解释原因为何
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
我知道连圣彼得都不愿提起我的名子
Never an honest word
不曾有过真诚两个字
But that was when I ruled the world
但那就是我曾经统治的世界
Ooooo ooooo ooooo oooooo ooooo
Ooooo ooooo ooooo oooooo ooooo


I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
我听见耶路撒冷的钟声响起
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
罗马的骑兵唱诗班正在吟唱著
Be my mirror my sword and shield
请成为我的镜子 我的剑与盾
My missionaries in a foreign field
我的传教士流亡在外
For some reason I can't explain
我无法解释原因为何
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
我知道连圣彼得都不愿提起我的名子
Never an honest word
不曾有过真诚两个字
But that was when I ruled the world
但那就是我曾经统治的世界
