Caught Somewhere In Time

Steve Harris
If you had the time to lose,
An open mind and time to choose
Would you care to take a look,
Or can you read me like a book
Time is always on my side, time is always on my side

Can I tempt you come with me,
Be Devil may care fulfil your dream
If I said I'd take you there,
Would you go would you be scared
Time is always on my side, time is always on my side

Don't be afraid you're safe with me, safe as any soul can be
Honestly...just let yourself go

Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time

Solo

Like a wolf in sheep's clothing,
You try to hide your deepest sins
Of all the things that you've done wrong,
And I know where you belong
Time is always on my side, time is always on my side

Make you an offer you can't refuse, you've only got your soul to lose
Eternally...just let yourself go

Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught now in two minds

Wasted Years

Adrian Smith
From the coast of gold, across the seven seas, I'm travelin' on, far and wide
But now it seems, I'm just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do, it isn't me but someone else

I close my eyes, and think of home, another city goes by in the night
Ain't it funny how it is, you never miss it 'til its gone away
And my heart is lying there and will be 'til my dying day

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up...make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

Too much time on my hands, I got you on my mind
Can't ease this pain, so easily
When you can't find the words to say it's hard to make it through another day
And it just makes me wanna cry and throw my hands up to the sky

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up...make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

Solo

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up...make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up...make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

Sea Of Madness

Adrian Smith
Out in the street somebody's crying,
Out in the night the fires burn
Maybe tonight somebody's crying,
Reached the point of no return
Oh - my eyes they see but I can't believe
Oh - my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Like the eagle and the dove,
Fly so high on wings above
When all you see can only bring you sadness
Like a river we will flow,
On toward the sea we go
When all you do can only bring you sadness
Out on the sea of madness

Somewhere I hear a voice that's calling,
Out in the dark there burns a dream
You got to hope when you are falling,
To find the world that you have seen
Oh - my eyes they see but I can't believe
Oh - my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Like the eagle and the dove,
Fly so high on wings above
When all you see can only bring you sadness
Like a river we will flow,
On toward the sea we go
When all you do can only bring you sadness
Out on the sea of madness

Solo

It's madness, the sun don't shine on the sea of madness
There ain't no wind to fill your sails
Madness, when all you see can only bring you sadness
On toward the sea we go...

Out in the street somebody's crying,
Out in the night the fires burn
Maybe tonight somebody's crying,
Reached the point of no return
Oh - my eyes they see but I can't believe
Oh - my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Like the eagle and the dove,
Fly so high on wings above
When all you see can only bring you sadness
Like a river we will flow,
On toward the sea we go
When all you do can only bring you sadness
On the sea of madness...
Of madness,of madness, of madness

Heaven Can Wait

Steve Harris
Can't understand what is happening to me,
This isn't real this is only a dream
But I never have felt, no I never have felt this way before
I'm looking down on my body below,
I lie asleep in the midst of a dream
Is it now could it be the Angel of Death has come for me

I can't believe that really my time has come
I don't feel ready there's so much left undone
And it's my soul and I'm not gonna let it get away

Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day
Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day

I have a lust for the earth below,
And hell itself is my only foe
'Cause I've no fear of dying, I'll go when I'm good and ready
I snatch a glimpse of the lights eternal rays,
I see a tunnel I stand amazed
At all of the people standing there in front of me

Into the paths of rightness I'll be led
Is this the place where the living join the dead?
I wish I knew this was only just a nightmare

Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day
Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day

Solo

Take my hand I'll lead you to the promised land
Take my hand I'll give you immortality
Eternal youth I'll take you to the other side
To see the truth the path for you is decided

Solo

My body tingles and I feel so strange,
I feel so tired I feel so drained
And I'm wondering if I'll ever be the same again
Is this in limbo or Heaven or Hell?
Maybe I'm going down there as well
I can't accept my soul will drift forever

I feel myself floating back down to Earth
So could this be the hour of my rebirth?
Or have I died or will I wake from dreaming?

Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day
Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day

The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner

Steve Harris
The tough of the track with the wind and the rain that's beating down on your back
Your heart's beating loud, and goes on getting louder and goes on even more
'Til the sound is ringing in your head, with every step you tread and every breath you take
Determination makes you run, never stop, got to win got to run 'til you drop
Keep the pace hold the race, your mind is getting clearer
You're over half way there, but the miles they never seem to end
As if you're in a dream, not getting anywhere, it seems so futile

Run on and on, run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner

I've got to keep running the course
I've got to keep running and win at all costs
I've got to keep going be strong
Must be so determined and push myself on

Solo
Run over stiles across fields, turn to look at who's on your heels
Way ahead of the field, the line is getting nearer but do you want the glory that goes
You reach the final stretch, ideals are just a trace
You feel like throwing the race, it's all so futile

Run on and on, run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner
Run on and on, run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner

Run on and on, run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner
Run on and on, run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner

Stranger In A Strange Land

Adrian Smith
Was many years ago that I left home and came this way
I was a young man, full of hopes and dreams
But now it seems that all is lost and nothing gained
Sometimes things ain't what they seem
No brave new world, no brave new world
No brave new world, no brave new world

Night and day I scan horizon, sea and sky
My spirit wanders endlessly
until the day will dawn and friends from home discover why
Hear me calling, rescue me
Set me free, set me free
Lost in this place, and leave no trace

Stranger in a strange land, land of ice and snow
Trapped here in this prison, lost and far from home

One hundred years have gone and men again they came that way
To find the answer to the mystery
They found his body lying where it fell that day
Preserved in time for all to see
No brave new world, no brave new world
Lost in this place, and leave no trace

What became of the men that started, all are gone and souls departed
Left me here in this place so all alone

Stranger in a strange land, land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison, lost and far from home

Solo

What became of the men that started, all are gone and souls departed
Left me here in this place so all alone

Stranger in a strange land, land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison, lost and far from home

Stranger in a strange land, land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison, lost and far from home

Stranger in a strange land, lost and far from home
Trapped inside this prison, lost and far from home

Deja Vu

Steve Harris, Dave Murray
Solo

When you see familiar faces but you don't remember where they're from
Could you be wrong?
When you've been particular places that you know you've never seen before
Can you be sure?

'Cause you know this has happened before
And you know that this moment in time is for real
And you know when you feel deja-vu

Feel like I've been here before, feel like I've been here before
Feel like I've been here before, feel like I've been here before

Ever had a conversation that you realize you've had before
Isn't it strange?
Have you ever talked to someone and you feel you know what's coming next
It feels pre-arranged

'Cause you know that you've heard it before
And you feel that this moment in time is surreal
'Cause you know when you feel deja-vu

Feel like I've been here before, feel like I've been here before
Feel like I've been here before, feel like I've been here before

Alexander The Great

Steve Harris
Solo

Near to the east, in a part of ancient Greece, in an ancient land called Macedonia
Was born a son to Philip of Macedon, the legend his name was Alexander
At the age of nineteen he became the Macedon King, and he swore to free all of Asia Minor
By the Aegian Sea in 334 BC, he utterly beat the armies of Persia

Alexander the Great, his name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great, became a legend amongst mortal men

King Darius the third, defeated fled Persia, the Scythians fell by the river Jaxartes
Then Egypt fell to the Macedon King as well, and he founded the city called Alexandria
By the Tigris river he met King Darius again, and crushed him again in the battle of Arbela
Entering Babylon and Susa, treasures he found, took Persepolis the capital of Persia

Alexander the Great, his name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great, became a God amongst mortal men

Solo

A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke, and Alexander cut the Gordian knot
And legend said that who untied the knot, he would become the master of Asia
Helonism he spread far and wide, the Macedonian learned mind
Their culture was a western way of life, he paved the way for Christianity
Marching on, marching on

The battle weary marching side by side, Alexander's army line by line
They wouldn't follow him to India, tired of the combat, pain and the glory

Alexander the Great, his name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great, he died of fever in Babylon
