Anthony David - Everybody Wants To Rule The World 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 design, 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 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, never need it
One headline, why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world
Wants to rule

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

  23. UknowShaunyRight

    I like this. His voice sounds "a pinch" like Seal singing this song.

  24. 11:11

    They did a great job on this. The original is a classic and one of my favorite songs of all time. Never thought I'd see an R&B artist remake a Tears for Fears song. Just goes to show that Anthony David is on another level.

  25. darknluv

    This is my every morning song... lol

  26. James Stockett

    shawn is just that dude

  27. darknluv

    UGH BoyzIIMen is the best manband of all time and anthony david has the greatest tone of all time... and they're COUSINS! LOL well whatdaya know?! lol ...I'm not just saying this because I'm caught in the "wave" of what's new now, but I really believe his music will stand the test of time and he has become my favorite artist. When I comtemplate BUYING ur album, I love u. lol I've only BOUGHT Michael Jackson, 1 Stevie Wonder, and 1 John Mayer album... Now I HAVE to find all three Anthony David.
