So Sad They Had to Fade

Everyone Wants to Rule the World icon-external-link-12x12 icon-search-12x12 (track 03 from the Songs from the Big Chair LP by Tears for Fears icon-external-link-12x12 icon-search-12x12 )

Tears for Fears' "Songs from the Big Chair" album cover. [Formatted]

Welcome to your life
There is 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 is 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 have almost made it
So sad they had to fade
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 will 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
