Iron Maiden Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Up The Irons       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Prowler (3:56)
Walking through the city, looking oh so pretty,
I've just got to find my way.
See the ladies flashing. All there 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.
Got me feeling myself and reeling a...
Got me talking but nothing's with me...
Got me feeling myself and reeling around.
2. Remember Tomorrow (5:28)
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...

Tears for rememberance 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!

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!
3. Running Free (3:18)
Just sixteen, a pick-up truck, out of money, out of luck
I've got no place 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! 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, yeah!

I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free
I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free
-- Get out my way!

I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free
I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free

Pulled her at the Bottle Top - whiskey, 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...
4. Phantom of the Opera (7:20)
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 long now to last
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past

You're standing in the wings; there you wait for the curtain to fall
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all
Yeah, I know that you're gonna scratch me, 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

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
5. Transylvania (4:19)
instrumental
6. Strange World (5:32)
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
A let's walk in deepest space; living here just isn't the place

-- O-oh-oh...

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? O-oh-oh...
7. Charlotte the Harlot (4:13)
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?
And 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, you're draws are off color too
'Cause you're making love all day

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
8. Iron Maiden (3:36)
Oh yeah!

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...
