    I have only heard snippets of the lyrics....but Bruce sounds so...earnest in this song. The emotion. It's a great track so far.

    I am already imagining being at the show and singing along with the glorious chorus!!

    This is what I wanted from Maiden on this release! This is from the heart...as a matter of fact the lead break reminds me of  Rainbow's "Catch The Rainbow" (anybody else get that?)

    Love it!  :edmetal:

    My God, Bruce has outdone himself in his phrasing. Love it. Dripping with emotion.

    Holy crap mates.  Coming home!  [Listening as we speak]  This has all the best parts of Wasted Years,+Out of the Shadows.. I even hear some Moonchild? maybe/  ...Damn. This song is outstanding.  Is it a power ballad?  Is it a rocker?  I'm getting some Scorpions feel here...It is romantic, powerful,  and pure metal!!  The intro and outro are the perfect bookends for a nearly uncontainable piece of made for a live audience Rock.  This is Maiden at their best.  We are blessed this day!!

    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

    One of the songs that makes me proud of being a Maiden fan. I love the mood, the emotion, the chorus... and that intro is so old school! I love this fucking song.

    Travis The Dragon The dreamers may die, but the dreams live on.

    What a cool intro! And the chorus! WOW!

    Just a couple tiny changes. All-in-all, fantastic transcription. Thanks!

    You guys rock. YW Moonchild33, thanks, edited.

    The first line in the chorus is driving me nuts. And I still don't know about the "over the mountains, stony graves" part, but that's what I hear.

    Almost sounds like 'Til all beings land'

    I'm not so good in "understanding" lyrics, but I think that this song's lyrics are about Bruce's experience with flying etc. Am I right?
