Stranger In A Strange Land (Letra/Lyrics)

Was many years ago that I left home and came this way
I was a young man, full of hope and dreams
But now it seems to me that all is lost and
nothing gained
Sometimes things ain't what they seem
No brave new world, no brave new world
No brave new world, no brave new world

Night and day I scan horizon, sea and sky
My spirit wanders endlessly
Until the day will dawn and friends from home
discover why
Hear me calling, rescue me
Set me free, set me free
Lost in this place, and leave no trace

Stranger in a strange land
Land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home

One hundred years have gone and men again
they came that way
To find the answer to the mystery
They found his body lying where it fell all that day
Preserved in time for all to see
No brave new world, no brave new world
Lost in this place, and leave no trace

What became of the man that started
All are gone and their souls departed
Left me here in this place
So all alone

What became of the man that started
All are gone and their souls departed
Left me here in this place
So all alone

Sobre Stranger In A Strange Land

  • El segundo sencillo lanzado de Somewhere In Time. Esta canción comparte un título con un libro de Robert Heinlein, pero no se basa en él. Esto es interesante porque la frase "valiente mundo nuevo" se repite varias veces en la canción, y es una famosa obra distópica de Aldous Huxley.

  • La canción se basó en una expedición a la vida real del Ártico y el guitarrista Adrian Smith se inspiró para escribir esta canción después de hablar con uno de los sobrevivientes (¡que por cierto terminó convirtiéndose en un fan de Iron Maiden!).
