Texty

Prowler [3:55] (Harris)

Walking through the city
Looking oh so pretty
I’ve just got to find my way
See the ladies flashing
All their legs and lashes
I’ve just got to find my way

Well you see me crawling through the bushes
With it open wide – What you seeing girl?
Can’t you believe that feeling, can’t you believe it?
Can’t you believe your eyes? – It’s the real thing girl

Got me feeling myself and reeling around
Got me talking but feel like walking around

(1:59 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Got me feeling myself and reeling a…
Got me talking but nothing’s with me…
Got me feeling myself and reeling around

Walking through the city
Looking oh so pretty
I’ve just got to find my way
See the ladies flashing
All their legs and lashes
I’ve just got to find my way

Well you see me crawling through the bushes
With it open wide – What you seeing girl?
Can’t you believe that feeling, can’t you believe it?
Can’t you believe your eyes? – It’s the real thing girl

Got me feeling myself and reeling around
Got me talking but feel like walking around

Sanctuary [3:13] (Harris, Di’Anno, Murray)

Out of the winter came a war horse of steel
I’ve never killed a woman before but I know how it feels

I know you’d have gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I’ve got to look for sanctuary from the law

I met up with a ‘slinger last night to keep me alive
He spends all his money on gambling and guns to survive

I know you’d have gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I’ve got to look for sanctuary from the law

So give me sanctuary from the law and I’ll be alright
Just give me sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight

(1:11 – Solo: Dennis Stratton)
(1:30 – Solo: Dave Murray)

I know you’d have gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I’ve got to look for sanctuary from the law

I can laugh at the wind, I can howl at the rain
Down in the canyon or out in the plain

I know you’d have gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I’ve got to look for sanctuary from the law

So give me sanctuary from the law and I’ll be alright
Just give me sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight

Remember Tomorrow [5:27] (Harris, Di’Anno)

Unchain the colours before my eyes
Yesterday’s sorrows tomorrow’s white lies
Scan the horizon the clouds take me higher
I shall return from out of the fire

Tears for remembrance and tears for joy
Tears for somebody and this lonely boy
Out in the madness the all seeing eye
Flickers above us to light up the sky

(2:39 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(3:08 – Solo: Dennis Stratton)

Unchain the colours before my eyes
Yesterday’s sorrows tomorrow’s white lies
Scan the horizon the clouds take me higher
I shall return from out of the fire

Running Free [3:16] (Harris, Di’Anno)

Just sixteen a pickup truck, out of money out of luck
I’ve got nowhere to call my own, hit the gas and here I go

I’m running free yeah! I’m running free
I’m running free yeah! Oh I’m running free

Spent the night in an L.A. jail and listened to the sirens wail
They ain’t got a thing on me, I’m running wild I’m running free

I’m running free yeah! I’m running free
I’m running free yeah! Oh I’m running free

Pulled her at the Bottle Top, whisky dancing disco hop
Now all the boys are after me and that’s the way it’s gonna be

I’m running free yeah! I’m running free
I’m running free yeah! Oh I’m running free

Phantom Of The Opera [7:20] (Harris)

I’ve been looking so long for you now you won’t get away from my grasp
You’ve been living so long in hiding in hiding behind that false mask
And you know and I know that you ain’t got that long to last
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past

Standing in the wings there you wait for the curtain to fall
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all
I know that you’re gonna scratch me and maim me and maul
You know I’m helpless from your mesmerising cat call

Keep your distance walk away don’t take his bait
Don’t you stray, don’t fade away
Watch your step he’s out to get you come what may
Don’t you stray from the narrow way

(2:47 – Slow Solo: Dave Murray)
(5:09 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(5:26 – Solo: Dennis Stratton)

I’m running and hiding in my dreams you’re always there
You’re the Phantom of the Opera you’re the devil you’re just out to scare
You damaged my mind and my soul it just floats through the air
You haunt me you taunt me you torture me back at your lair

Transylvania [4:05] (Harris)

Instrumental

(1:55 – Solo: Dennis Stratton)
(2:13 – Solo: Dave Murray) 

Strange World [5:45] (Harris)

(0:55 – Solo: Dennis Stratton)

The only place where you can dream,
Living here is not what it seems
Ship of white, light in the sky,
Nobody there to reason why
Here I am, I’m not really there,
Smiling faces ever so rare
Let’s walk in deepest space,
Living here just isn’t the place

(3:12 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Stalks of light come from the ground
When I cry there isn’t a sound
All my feelings cannot be held
I’m happy in my new strange world
Shades of green grasses twine
Girls drinking plasma wine
A look at love, a dream unfolds
Living here you’ll never grow old

Don’t you hear me call? Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Charlotte The Harlot [4:12] (Murray)

Giving a swish with your arse in the air don’t you know what they’re saying?
Charlotte you’re so refined when you take all the love that they’re giving
Sticking with every man that you find don’t you know what they’re after?
Charlotte you’ve got your legs in the air don’t you hear all the laughter?

Charlotte The Harlot show me your legs
Charlotte The Harlot take me to bed
Charlotte The Harlot let me see blood
Charlotte The Harlot let me see love

Taking so many men to your room don’t you feel no remorse?
You charge them a fiver it’s only for starters and ten for the main course
And you’ve got no feelings they died long ago don’t you care who you let in?
Don’t you know you’re breaking the law with the service you’re giving

Charlotte The Harlot show me your legs
Charlotte The Harlot take me to bed
Charlotte The Harlot let me see blood
Charlotte The Harlot let me see love

There was a time when you left me standing there picking up pieces of love off the floor
Well Charlotte you left me alone in there to make your ends as a bloody whore
Well Charlotte you told me you love me true picking up pieces of love yesterday
Well Charlotte your drawers are off color too ’cause you’re making love all day

(2:58 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(3:07 – Solo: Dennis Stratton)

Giving a swish with your arse in the air don’t you know what they’re saying?
Charlotte you’re so refined when you take all the love that they’re giving
Sticking with every man that you find don’t you know what they’re after?
Charlotte you’ve got your legs in the air don’t you hear all the laughter?

Charlotte The Harlot show me your legs
Charlotte The Harlot take me to bed
Charlotte The Harlot let me see blood
Charlotte The Harlot let me see love

Iron Maiden [3:35] (Harris)

Won’t you come into my room I wanna show you all my wares
I just want to see your blood I just want to stand and stare
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor
Iron Maiden can’t be fought Iron Maiden can’t be sought

Oh well, wherever, wherever you are
Iron Maiden’s gonna get you no matter how far
See the blood flow, watching it shed up above my head
Iron Maiden wants you for dead

Won’t you come into my room I wanna show you all my wares
I just want to see your blood I just want to stand and stare
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor
Iron Maiden can’t be fought Iron Maiden can’t be sought

Oh well, wherever, wherever you are
Iron Maiden’s gonna get you no matter how far
See the blood flow, watching it shed up above my head
Iron Maiden wants you for dead

Burning Ambition (Harris) [2:40]

So you think you can own me, well you’d better just think again
You’d better watch your steps now, woman, ’cause I ain’t like those other men
There’s something burning inside me that makes me want to be free
And when I get these feelings honey, you better keep away from me

There’s things in life now, baby, that I know I’ve got to do
And I need your love now, baby, to help me see it through
So you think you can own me, well you’d better just think again
You’d better watch your steps now, woman, ’cause I ain’t like those other men

So you think you can own me, well you’d better just think again
You’d better watch your steps now, woman, ’cause I ain’t like those other men
There’s something burning inside me that makes me want to be free
And when I get these feelings honey, you better keep away from me

Drifter (live) (Harris) [6:04]

Walk away!

Look out now baby won’t you take me away
Sitting here it’s gonna be a new day
Gotta sing my song and I can’t go wrong
Gotta keep on roaming gotta sing my song

What you feeling when you hold me tight?
I’m gonna cuddle up with you tonight
Gonna get you feeling so secure
Listen child don’t you see there’s a cure?
Anywhere, got to get you away
Feels so good think it’s gonna be a new day
I’m gonna get my song ’til I can’t go on
I’m gonna keep on roaming gonna sing my song
Ooh yeah, ooh

I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along
I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along

What you feeling when you hold me tight?
I’m gonna cuddle up with you tonight
Gonna get you feeling so secure
Listen child don’t you see there’s a cure?
Anywhere got to get you away
Feels so good, think it’s gonna be a new day
I’m gonna get my song ’til I can’t go on
I’m gonna keep on roaming gonna sing my song
I wanna rock and roll, yeah

I’m gonna sing my song yeah, and it won’t take long
I’m gonna sing my song yeah, I want you to sing along

I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along
I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it alone

I’ve Got The Fire (live) (Montrose) [3:14]

Then baby, pass me by
And if you wanted something that’s twenty years deep
Baby, don’t even try
And if you wanted someone to take your soul
I’ll lift you up little bit higher

I’ve got the fire!

So you think I’m skinny, don’t you sell me cheap
I’m as wide as a country-mile
Some like it wide, I like it deep
Guess which one is my style
So you think you can beat me by my own game
Maybe I’ll call you a liar

I’ve got the fire! I’ve got the fire!
