Journeyman Lyrics - Iron Maiden

Review The Song (16)



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 is 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 colours of the dawn
Will this journeyman's day be his last

I know what I want
I'll say what I want
And no one can take it away
I know what I want
sponsored links
I'll say what I want
And no one can take it away

But the memory still remains
All the 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 your journeyman's day has begun

I know what I want
I'll say what I want
And no one can take it away
I know what I want
I'll say what I want
And no one can take it away

(Spare your life and choose the destruction of time over yourself.)

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 your journeyman's day has begun

I know what I want
I'll say what I want
And no one can take it away
I know what I want
I'll say what I want
And no one can take it away

The Whispered Lyrics | Reviewer: RobertMfromLI | 12/23/09

One of my favorite songs of all time!

Bruce whispers this (it's noted in the lyrics above in parenthesis):

"(Spare your life and choose the destruction of time over yourself.)"

You can hear it pretty clearly in the electric version of this song.



One of the top three best Iron Maiden songs!!! | Reviewer: redcougar67320 | 8/20/09

I won't say this song is their most intricate or technical, but it is one of their most soothing and moving songs. I love the fluidity of the simple chords, weaving in and out of each other....classic Maiden. The lyrics are ambiguous enough that one can apply them to many different things, and it's a showcase of Bruce's voice, whom I don't believe can do any wrong anyway!!! lol But for me, this song has personal meaning and it always soothes this savage beast's soul.....Up The IRONS!!!!!



Epic. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/7/09

This song is definitly one of their best. Might not be the best guitar, but the maturity and the poety is just amazing. If you listen to the symbolic lyrics, you can be inspired to do anything.

Was it inspired by a ballad?



amazingly done | Reviewer: Lud | 10/1/08

Like many others, this is one of my favorite songs ever, Iron Maiden just showed that they could do a perfect acoustic song, filled with beautiful lyrics that can shake you up. But there's something I would like to know, like others again: Bruce is whispering something juste before the last part and it would be cool if I knew what the words are..so if you know something about it..e-mail me please:)



Journeyman | Reviewer: ironmaidenfan | 4/10/08

One of the best Iron Maiden songs EVER. Especially, the electric guitar version is awesome.

If anyone can tell me what Bruce whispers, plz email me at athenva [at] gmail [dot] com by removing the spaces and replacing [at] with @ and [dot] with .

Bloody oath they did!
Like many have said b4 me this song was made for bruces voice no 1, i repeat no 1 could deliver this song like bruce

Secret lyrics | Reviewer: Jimbo | 12/1/07

What does he whisper during the instrumental after the second time he sings "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 your Journeyman's day has begun"?
If you listen very closely you can hear it. It's something about chains of destruction but I can't figure out the rest. If anyone knows, I'd appreciate it if you let me know



3.5 stars | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/2/07

Why the fuck is everyone talking about fucking truth in the lyrics? There is none. It's a beautiful song but there is no deep inner meaning to it. I mean, seriously, its fucking journey



the best song | Reviewer: P_DOG | 10/18/07

i think iron maiden is one of the best bands out there and this has got to be the best song by them. the guitar is amazin and Bruce does a wonderful job singing it. thanx iron maiden for the great song
