Awe-Inspiring August – 2018 Song Lyric Sunday

The prompt for this week in Song Lyric Sunday from Helen is “Fear.”  I am going to adapt this slightly and instead of the lyric being fear, I’m choosing the band Tears for Fears.  The song:

Everybody Wants To Rule The World

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

Songwriters: Chris Hughes / Ian Stanley / Roland Orzabal

And the video

“Welcome to your life.  There’s no turning back.”  “Help me make the most of Freedom and of Pleasure.”  Love these lines.  Thanks Helen.  Happy Sunday.

      It is interesting to me how the lyrics I identify with change over time. When this first came out I don’t think I paid much attention to the lyrics, just liked the beat.
