return of the king lyrics – bruce dickinson

a 100 years of toil and pain
to pull a stone upright again
uproot from it’s mountain home
taken to this sacred circle

is there a secret in the stone?
a message in the hills
is there a secret in the stones?
a message long ago

i know the king will come again

from the shadow to the sun

burning hillsides from the beltane fires

i know the king will come again

when all that glitters turn to rust

uther pendragon standing fast beside you
the sun the moon we worshipped here
a calendar of fear
gazing across the channel sea
to see the beacons burning brightly

is that a shadow on the hill?
or a phantom in the mere
what is the meaning of these stones?
why do they stand alone?

i know the king will come again

from the shadow to the sun

burning hillsides with the beltane fires

i know the king will come again

when all that glitters turn to rust

uther pendragon standing fast beside you
is that a shadow on the hill?
or a phantom in the mere
what is the meaning of these stones?
why do they stand alone?

i know the king will come again

from the shadow to the sun

burning hillsides with the beltane fires

i know the king will come again

when all that glitters turn to rust

uther pendragon standing fast beside you
i know the king will come again
i know the king will come again
