Iron Maiden – Coming Home lyrics

When I stand before you shining
In the early morning sun
When I feel the engines roar
And I thing of what we've done

Oh, the bittersweet reflection as
We kiss the earth goodbye
As the waves and echos of the
Towns became the ghost of time

Over borders that divide the
Earthbound tribes
No greed and no religion
Just a hungred winged souls

We will ride this thunderbird
Silver shadows on the earth
A thousand leagues away
Our land of birth

To albions land
Coming home
When I see the runway lights
In the misty dawn
The night is fading fast

Coming home, far away
As the vapor trails aline
Where I've been tonight
You know I will not stay

Carving on the edge of daylight
Till it slips into the void
Waited in the long night dreaming
Till the sun is born again

Stretch the fingers of my hand
Cover countries with my span
Just a lonely satellite
Speck of dust and cosmic sand

Over borders that divide the
Earthbound tribes
Through the dark atlantic
Over mariners stormy waves

We will ride this thunderbird
Silver shadows on the earth
A thousand leagues away
Our land of birth

To albions land
Coming home
When I see the runway lights
In the misty dawn
The night is fading fast

Coming home, far away
As the vapor trails aline
Where I've been tonight
You know I will not stay

To albions land
Coming home
When I see the runway lights
In the misty dawn
The night is fading fast

Coming home, far away
As the vapor trails aline
Where I've been tonight
You know I will not stay

Coming home, far away
When I see the runway lights
In the misty dawn
The night is fading fast

Coming home, far away
As the vapor trails aline
Where I've been tonight
You know I will not stay
