Rock out for Clive's Birthday!

Some classic Iron Maiden to observe Clive Burr's birthday and to round out the week: 

I love playing the drums in this song!

Phantom of the Opera

I've been looking so long for you now you won't get away from my grasp
You've been living so long in hiding in hiding behind that false mask
And you know and I know that you ain't got long now to last
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past

Standing in the wings there you wait for the curtain to fall
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all
Yeah, I know that you're going to scratch me, maim me and maul
You know I'm helpless from your mesmerizing cat call

Keep your distance, walk away, don't take his bait
Don't you stray, don't fade away
Watch your step, he's out to get you, come what may
Don't you stray from the narrow way

I'm running and hiding in my dreams you're always there
You're the Phantom of the Opera, you're the Devil, you're just out to scare
You damaged my mind and my soul it just floats through the air
You haunt me, you taunt me, you torture me back at your lair
You torture me back at your lair
Have a great weekend!
