CAUGHT SOMEWHERE IN TIMEIron Maiden - Somewhere In Time - Space


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, fulfill 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!!

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… oh, oh!!




From the coast of gold, across the seven seas,
I’m travelling 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 makes me wanna cry, and throw my hands up to the sky.





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 towards 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.


It’s madness,
The sun don’t shine
On the sea of madness,
There ain’t no wind to fill your sails,
When all you see can only bring you sadness
On towards the sea we go…




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 that 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.

[Repeat Chorus]

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.

Chorus # 2:

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.

Oh, Oh, Oh…
Oh, Oh, Oh…
Oh, Oh, Oh…

My body tingles, 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 in 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?





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 till the sound
Is ringing in your head,
With every step you tread,
And every breath you take,
Determination makes
You run,
Never stop,
Gotta win, gotta run till you drop,
Keep the pace,
Hold the race,
Your mind is getting clearer,
You’re over halfway there but the miles
Just 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.

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.




(Smith)Stranger in a Strange Land  - Iron Maiden Single

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 to me 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, yeah!
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 on 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.





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 been 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.

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.




«My son, ask for thyself another kingdom,
For that which I leave is to small for thee.»

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 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.


A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke,
And Alexander cut the «Gordion 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.
