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 ENEMYS 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 CANT EXPLAIN
ONCE YOU GO 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 COULDNT BELIEVE WHAT ID 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 CANT EXPLAIN
I KNOW SAINT PETER WILL CALL MY NAME
NEVER AN HONEST WORD
BUT THAT WAS WHEN I RULED THE WORLD
(OHHHHH OHHH OHHH)

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 CANT EXPLAIN
I KNOW SAINT PETER WILL CALL MY NAME
NEVER AN HONEST WORD
BUT THAT WAS WHEN I RULED THE WORLD
OOOOOH OOOOOH OOOOOH

I feel kike a lot of the comments on here either diss coldplay or taylor and I think that's really mean and unnecessary. I first heard this from this cover on tumblr, then I googled it and listened to the coldplay version. I'm a die hard taylor fan and I do really like coldplay - and I think that this cover brings it onto such a soft acoustic version and it's beautiful. And the coldplay version - the original version - it's inspired - how it's produced.I think that this song is worth listening to with the acoustic TS cover and the original version its just so amazing.
Taylor Barbie Swift
Love it
Kaiya 。。
I'm a die hard Coldplay fan sorry Taylor
ReubMann
You are all ignorant fucks.
John Horlbogen
She does it much better than coldplay!

@Sydney W I didn't say that anyone said she did, so please read the comment clearer. I said that the TITLE was very MISLEADING.
Sydney W
no one said she did

I was just thinking gthe same also watched gaga ....coldplay rules ,it is hard to top a good song ,very rare ,she should not have only done this privately
Brody Wright
no cover will ever be better than how coldplay did it because that was unique, doesnt mean that the covers are bad though because this is good 
Natascha Wood
It's obviously not Taylor Swift's song because its not about any of her ex boyfriends.
