Tears of the Dragon - Bruce Dickinson



For too long now
There were secrets in my mind
For too long now
There were things I should have said
In the darkness
I was stumbling for the door
To find a reason
To find the time,the place,the hour

Waiting for the winter sun

And the cold light of day
The misty ghosts of childhood fears
The pressure is building
And I can't stay away

I throw myself into the sea

Release the wave
Let it wash over me
To face the fear
I once believed
The tears of the dragon
For you and for me

Where I was

I had wings that couldn't fly
Where I was
I had tears I couldn't cry
My emotions
Frozen in an icy lake
I couldn't feel them
Until the ice began to break

I have no power over this

You know I'm afraid
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving
I'm slipping away

I throw myself into the sea

Release the wave
Let it wash over me
To face the fear
I once believed
The tears of the dragon
For you and for me

Slowly I awake

Slowly I rise
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving
I'm slipping away

I throw myself into the sea

Release the wave
Let it wash over me
To face the fear
I once believed
The tears of the dragon
For you and for me
