I am a man who walks along

And when I’m walking a dark road

At night, or strolling through the park

When the light begins to change

I sometimes feel a little strange

A little anxious

When it’s dark

    Fear of the dark, Iron Maiden

Capitolo 1

I’ve got no home in this world

Just gravity

Luck and time

I’ve got no home in this world

Just you and you are not mine

You come on like a flame

Then you turn a cold shoulder

Fire and ice

I wonna give you my love

But you’ll just a little piece of my heart

Like Alice through the Looking Glass

She used to know who she was

Call out my name

But I get no answer

And she praise for the world that she comes from

Appears under your feet

You slip out of your depth and out of your mind

With your fear flowing out from behind

Your hustls busted when

You can’t afford a cigarette

The last I heard from you

You were screaming “handle it”

Yes there are two paths you can go by

But in the long run there is

Still time to change the road you’re on

And it makes me wander

in case you don’t know

On the wrong girl

Step outside but not to brawl

This is the spring time of my loving

The second season I am to know

You are the sunlight in my growing

The play is done

The curtain is down

All the tales are told

All the orchids gone

Lost in my own world

Playful as a pussy cat

Then momentarily out of action

Temporarily out of gas

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

The dreams in which I’m dying

Are the best I’ve ever read

Capitolo 6

And now I can’t be sure of anything

Black is white, and cold is heat

For what I worshipped stole my love away

It was the ground beneath her feet.

Go lightly underground. I’ll be down there in another day

I won’t rest until your found

Your voodo right around my neck

For long you live and high you fly

And smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry

And all your touch and all you see

Is all your life will ever be

But I intend to leave like a lion

And don’t cry baby don’t cry

There is no other day

A better love deserving of

Just to hear about my day

Got a pile of sins to pay for

And I ain’t got time to hide

I’d walk through a blazing fire, baby,

Standing, by the wall

And the guns shot above our heads

And we kissed,

As though nothing could fall

And its consequence
