coming home lyrics – iron maiden

“coming home”

when i stand before you shining in the early morning sun
when i feel the engines roar and i think of what we’ve done
oh the bittersweet reflection as we kiss the earth goodbye
as the waves and echoes of the towns become the ghosts of time

over borders that divide the earthbound tribes
no creed and no religion just a hundred winged souls
we will ride this thunderbird, silver shadows on the earth
a thousand leagues away, our land of birth

to albion’s land
coming home when i see the runway lights
in the misty dawn the night is fading fast
coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
where i’ve been tonight, you know i will not stay

curving on the edge of daylight til it slips into the void
waited in the long night, dreaming til the sun is born again
stretched the fingers of my hand, covered 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 mounting stormy waves
we will ride this thunderbird, silver shadows on the earth
a thousand leagues away, our land of birth

to albion’s land
coming home when i see the runway lights
in the misty dawn the night is fading fast
coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
where i’ve been tonight, you know i will not stay

to albion’s land
coming home when i see the runway lights
in the misty dawn the night is fading fast
coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
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 their vapor trails align
where i’ve been tonight, you know i will not stay
