Texty

Caught Somewhere In Time [7:22] (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… oh oh

(3:26 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(4:04 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

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 somewhere in time… oh oh

Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught now in two minds… oh oh

Wasted Years [5:06] (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 it’s 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

(3:14 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

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 [5:42] (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

(2:36 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

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 towards 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

Out on the sea of madness
Of madness… of madness… of madness…

 

Heaven Can Wait [7:24] (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 light’s 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

(2:21 – Solo: Dave Murray)

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

(4:26 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

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 [6:31] (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

(3:25 – Solo: Adrian Smith)
(3:45 – Solo: Dave Murray)

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 [5:43] (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

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

(3:18 – Slow solo: Adrian Smith)
(3:50 – Fast solo: Adrian Smith)

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

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

 

Deja-Vu [4:55] (Murray, Harris)

(0:01 – Solo: Dave Murray)

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 realise 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 [8:35] (Harris)

“My son ask for thyself another Kingdom,
for that which I leave is too small for thee”
(King Philip of Macedonia – 339 B.C.)

(0:15 – Intro solo: Adrian Smith)

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

(4:00 – Solo: Adrian Smith)
(5:49 – Solo: Adrian Smith)
(6:30 – Solo: Dave Murray)

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
Hellenism 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

Reach Out (Colwell)

It’s over your head
And you don’t seem to understand
One word I say
And you can’t live your life
Trying to run away

You’re fighting your friends
And you’re wearing everyone
But it never ends
You’re wearing me out

Come on, reach out
And let someone into your life

Don’t get me wrong
You always apologise
It’s just your way
Of making a scene
You need to be loved
It’s not such a crime

Come on, reach out
And let someone into your life
Come on, reach out
And let someone into your life

Over your head
You just don’t seem to understand
One word I say
And you can’t live your life
You got so much love
It’s burning inside

Come on, reach out
And let someone into your life
Come on, reach out
And let someone into your life
Reach out
And let someone into your life

 

Sheriff Of Huddersfield (Dickinson, Harris, McBrain, Smith, Murray)

We’re on a mission from Rod <belch> <laughter>

Don’t think it’s very bloody funny at all, dunno what you’re all laughing about.

Life in a city living in L.A. is a long way from Huddersfield town
The back of the Rainbow’s a long way from heaven
But that’s where he get’s his pork pie
Limos and ladies they’re driving him cwasy
Wugby and cwicket’s unknown
Baseball and football they’re making him lazy
Your fan club says “Rodney come home”

The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle
Looks out on the Hollywood Hills
The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle
You’re our own Hot Rod on wheels

A good game of arrows a few dozen barrels
The Nautilus rusts in the yard
Yorkshire is yearning but because he’s earning
He’ll always live in L.A.
A custom-made wallet that stays in his pocket
And never comes out to pay bills
He’s winning at poker and playing the Joker
And he always cheats when he deals

The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle
Looks out on the Hollywood Hills
The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle
You’re our own Hot Rod on wheels

Hello, let me introduce meself! My name is Rodney. I’m immensely strong. When I were a lad, I could lift up five navvies on the end of a shovel. The reason I never took up martial arts is because I was immensely fearsome and I’d probably kill everybody that I came into contact with. I was phenomenally strong. Pride and ego, my lads, pride and ego, is what makes the world rotate. And everybody knows the centre of the universe is Huddersfield. That’s why I don’t live there anymore. I live in Los Angeles! It’s great!… I think!

Rufus The Red has a crane by his bed to wrench himself up in the morn’
You dare to tread at the foot of his bed, you’ll wish you’d never been born
A bear with a sore head we don’t mean your forehead He slumbers for most of the day
Wide eyed and legless, baked beans for breakfast
Your problem Rodney is L.A.

The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle
Looks down on the Hollywood Hills
The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle
You’re our own Hot Rod on wheels
The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle
Looks down on the Hollywood Hills
The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle
You’re our own Hot Rod on wheels

No, I don’t know what you’re making such a fuss about. No, I don’t. I’m not in here for the money. I like it here! The sun shines all night!

<belching and farting sounds>

It’s alright, I’m a Yorkshireman. I can take it.
I used to be able to lift five navvies on a shovel, you know.
You know? Uhhh… you’re not bloody listening to me, are you

 

That Girl (Barnett, Goldsworthy, Jupp)

The words she said turned out why
Desperation fills her eyes
Hold her in your arms, don’t let go

When you taste defeat, when you lose again
Fight and win, never give in
Hold her in your arms, don’t let go

That girl you need, gonna knock you off your feet
That girl, you know she’ll never let you go

That girl, that girl, that girl you need
That girl, that girl, that girl, that girl

Can you hear her call, call out your name
Think about you, cry without you
Hold her in your arms, don’t let go

Can you taste defeat, when you lose again
Fight and win, never give in
Hold her in your arms, don’t let go

That girl you need, gonna knock you off your feet
That girl, you know she’ll never let you go

That girl, that girl, that girl you need
That girl, that girl, that girl, that girl

That girl, that girl, that girl you need
That girl, that girl, that girl you need
That girl, that girl, that girl you need
That girl, that girl, that girl
That girl you need

Juanita (Barnacle, O’Neil)

Yeah and it’s the truth girl I’m looking from town to town for you
You know you never offered much security
Do you know I’m gonna get you back?
You just wait and see

I’m never goin’ back Juanita
I know you never got my call
I’m never goin’ back Juanita
Never at all

Yeah I’m spending a long time trying to work it out for true
Yeah it’s such small crime thirsting over you
Living in a Chelsea flat seems so lonely now
I just know I gotta get you back I just don’t know how

I’m never goin’ back Juanita
I know you didn’t get my call
I’m never goin’ back Juanita
Damn on it all

I’m never goin’ back Juanita
I’m never goin’ back Juanita
I’m never goin’ back Juanita
Never at all
Never never at all
Never never at all

Yeah just got to tell you I’m gonna leave it up to you
Yeah, what more can I say, what more can I do?
Living in a Chelsea flat seems so lonely now
I just know I gotta get you back I just don’t know how

I’m never goin’ down on Juanita
I’m never gonna make the call
I’m never goin’ down on Juanita
Never at all

I’m never goin’ down on Juanita
I’m never gonna make the call
I’m never goin’ down on Juanita
Two fingers and all
