EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD BY TEARS FOR FEARS

EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD BY TEARS FOR FEARS

LYRICS

Welcome to your life
There’s no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find You acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world
It’s my own desire
It’s my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world
There’s a room where the light won’t find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do, I’ll be right behind you
So glad we’ve almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world
I can’t stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you’ll never, never, never, need it
One headline, why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world
All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

Have you ever heard a tune and then you try to remember, by all means, the title of the song or where you heard it?
That’s exactly what I felt the moment I listened to this song. I knew I had heard the tune somewhere. So, I searched- thank God for Google, and there it was.
It was used as a soundtrack in the 2018 transformer-like movie, Bumblebee. I’m very sure you’ll love this 1985 track by Tears for fears.

Everybody wants control,
human nature in our soul,
we want to stand out
tell the world what life’s about
everybody wants to rule the world

take my hand, I will lead
create magic you’ll believe
be the headline in the news
rule the world in shades of blue
everybody wants to rule the world

be a leader do not follow
leave the past behind so hollow
Create a memory, make your mark
let the fire in you spark
everybody wants to rule the world

Love this, Monday. My kind of mellow music video. Very relaxing, and mind easing.

Reflections looms
in another year
feelings gesticulate
to assimilate heartbreaks..
everybody wants to
rule the world
yet how far have we reached
in loving creations?
we ponder in decisions
overcome with delusions
of power n greed
humanity reels
in divisions extreme.
