Iron Maiden – Journeyman lyrics

(Smith/Harris/Dickinson)

From the red sky of the east. To the sunset in the west
We have cheated death and he has cheated us

But that was just a dream. And this is what it means
We are sleeping and we'll dream for evermore

And the fragment remains of our memories
And the shadows we made with our hands
Deeper grey, come to mourn. All the colors of the dawn
Will this Journeyman's day be his last?

I know what I want and I say what I want
And no one can take it away. I know what I want
And I say what I want. And no one can take it away (x2)

But the memory still remains. All those past years not so strange
Our winter times are like a silent shroud

And the heartbeat of the day drives the mist away
And winter's not the only dream around

In your life you may choose desolation
And the shadows you build with your hands
If you turn to the light, that is burning in the night
Then this Journeyman's day has begun

I know what I want and I say what I want
And no one can take it away. I know what I want
And I say what I want. And no one can take it away (x2)

In your life you may choose desolation
And the shadows we build with our hands
If you turn to the light, that is burning in the night
Then this Journeyman's day has begun

I know what I want and I say what I want
And no one can take it away. I know what I want
And I say what I want. And no one can take it away (x2)
