Metallica The Prince Lyrics

Last updated:

(Originally recorded by Diamond Head)

Now I see his face, I see his smile
Such a lonely place, no golden mile
Eyes tell of morbid tales, of his black heart
His deeds through ages past, tell of his part

See his face, see his smile
Time to die
Yo-ooh, wo-ooh, noo

Angel from below, change my dreams
I want for glory's hour, for wealth's esteem
I wish to sell my soul, to be reborn
I wish for earthly riches, don't want no crown of thorns

See his face, see his smile
Time to die
Wo-ooh, oo-ooh, noo

I was born a fool, don't want to stay that way
Devil take my soul, with diamonds you repay
I don't care for heaven, so don't you look for me to cry
And I will burn in hell, from the day I die

See his face, see his smile
Time to die
Wo-ooh, no-ooh, no

Read it well b4 you sign... | Reviewer: StephanoV | 4/24/2007

Although it's not as long as Faust, music tends to offer an emotional background, which may be close to an actual narrative environment. This is one of my favourite metallica covers and I think it speaks for itself... in the end, Faust happy ending though in this case...things just don't work out that way... enjoy :D
