IRON MAIDEN - The Man Who Would Be King Lyrics

As he travels on the beast of Burden

Moving up along the mountain side

As he gazes looking down the valley

No regrets but his pride



As he journeys across mountain passes

And significant sweeps overhand

His reflection of the beauty around him

Feeling empty inside



He is running from his wildest thoughts

He is running from his everything

He is looking now to find something

Hoping he could be saved



He’s searching for the answer now

Is something that he's managed to avoid up until now

Looking for the conviction that he craves

He needs to find the answer sooner or later



Pushed himself to the limits

He had to strife for all the harder things in life

But what the cost to give him now

His life and time is the only things that he has



Life is is not a rehearsal, only has this the one chance to get it right

Living really is only way to know

Maybe one day they’ll forgive him what he’s done

with all the pain of lying too early in the grave



Destiny, no good to hide away

Hear us now, we’ll be his only way

Understand, no good to run away

Hear us now, we’ll be his saving grace



(solo)



Just to make his peace with God

All is forgivable but he’s left a little late

Trying something that he’s not

Is impossible to change such a lot



He's taken someone’s life away

There’s not a day that goes by he regrets what he’s done

He should have found another way

But the good book says an eye for an eye



In reflecting on decisions that were made

On the judgements that will haunt him ’till his grave

No-one has the right to take another life

But in his mind he had no choice so be it



Destiny, no good to hide away

Hear us now, we’ll be his only way

understand , no good to run away

Hear us now, we’ll be his saving grace

Destiny, no good to hide away

Hear us now, we’ll be his only way

understand, no place to run away

Hear us now, we’ll be his saving grace



Far, far away

The man who would be king

Far, far away

The man who would be king

So far away

The man who would be king

So far away

The man who would be king

Far, far away

The man who would be king
