Everybody Wants to Rule the World

Everybody Wants to Rule the World. The thought of singing this song only crossed my mind last week. I do have the album Songs from the Big Chair, but it did fade into the background over the years. It’s still not prominent to me really, but the thought of singing this song was enticing. It stuck.

A couple of weeks ago i made a playlist with the sing along songs on Spotify. I’m adding some new songs to this list, so i can sing along with them as well and make up my mind. Today i added Everybody Wants to Rule the World and decided straightaway to sing this one. I do have some difficulty with the final two words of the title. They do go quite low, too low for me really. I did try some variations, but it sounds completely different when i go up at the end. And shifting the key of the entire song makes it way too high for me. So yeah, sorry, but this is how it goes for me right now.

I do sing along with these songs a couple of times a week. I like the songs, i like the singing along and it is a training for my voice. I do feel, after an hour or more that i can sing better. A bit anyway.

I hope you will like it. Enjoy!

Tears For Fears – 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
Ev’rybody 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
Ev’rybody 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
