Tears of the Dragon

This is the unplugged version of the multi-talented Bruce Dickinson's 'Tears of the Dragon'.

I'm saying he's multi-talented because in addition to being an amazing singer, a guitarist, a drummer and an excellent performer, he's also a commercial pilot, a writer, an international professional in fencing and a BBC reporter!

He composed this song after he quit Iron Maiden in 1993, which he later rejoined in 1999.

I personally liked his songs more when he went solo.



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 cant 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 couldnt fly
Where I was, I had tears I couldnt cry
My emotions frozen in an icy lake
I couldnt feel them until the ice began to break

I have no power over this, you know Im afraid
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving, Im 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, Im slipping away...

I throw (I throw)
Myself (myself)
Into the sea
Release the wave, let it wash over me
To face (to face)
The fear (the fear)
I once believed
The tears of the dragon, for you and for me

I throw (I throw)
Myself (myself)
Into the sea
Release the wave, let it wash over me
To face (to face)
The fear (the fear)
I once believed
The tears of the dragon, for you and for me
