all Uriah Heep lyrics



High Priestess
You - you brought the sunshine to my eyes.
You - the one that threw my sad disguise.
And I have a love that cannot die - for you.

High priestess of my heart.
Tell me that we won't fall.

Then I stood together in the sky.
Leave your lonely walks and wonder why.
For we have a love they can't deny - so true.

High priestess of my heart.
Tell me that we won't fall.back to top
The Park
Let me walk awhile alone among the sacred rocks and stones.
Let me look in vain belief upon the beauty of each leaf.
There is green in every blade. The treetops lean, providing shade.
They are spining happy sounds, all nature's strength around.

And there's a horse that feels no pain,
its iron strength to take the strain.
Children rocking to and fro
and gayly drink its color glow.

Above, the sky, devoid of stars
thinks not to cast the thunder shroud.
And from this place, so full of joy,
a thing of gold that lies in blood.

"So why my heavy heart?" you say,
when tears would stain a sight so gay.
My brother's dreams, once hinted song,
until he died at the hand of needless wars.back to top
Time To Live
Let me see the sunshine. Let me feel the rain.
Let me go where I wanna go.
Well I want to smell the flowers, see the dawn again.
Find those friends I used to know.
Find those friends I used to know.

Well I spent twenty long years in a dirty old prison cell.
I never saw the light of day.
If you could understand, oh that kind of living hell.
That's the price I had to pay. Oh yeah!
That's the price I had to pay.

They say I killed a man, but I never told 'em why.
So you can guess what I've been through.
And so for twenty long years I've been thinking of that other guy
and what I saw him do to you.
What I saw him do to you.

Listen. So when tomorrow comes and I walk outside that door,
try to understand the strain.
But if you smile that smile I know I couldn't ask for more.
I know I'd do it all again. Yes I would.
I know I'd do it all again.back to top
Lady In Black
She came to me one morning, one lonely Sunday morning,
her long hair flowing in the mid-winter wind.
I know not how she found me, for in darkness I was walking,
and destruction lay around me from a fight I could not win.

She asked me name my foe then. I said the need within some men
to fight and kill their brothers without thought of men or god.
And I begged her give me horses to trample down my enemies,
so eager was my passion to devour this waste of life.

But she would not think of battle that reduces men to animals,
so easy to begin and yet impossible to end.
For she the mother of all men had counciled me so wisely that
I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay.

"Oh lady lend your hand," I cried, "Oh let me rest here at your side."
"Have faith and trust in me," she said and filled my heart with life.
There is no strength in numbers. I've no such misconceptions.
But when you need me be assured I won't be far away.

Thus having spoke she turned away and though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw her black cloak disappear.
My labor is no easier, but now I know I'm not alone.
I find new heart each time I think upon that windy day.
And if one day she comes to you drink deeply from her words so wise.
Take courage from her as your prize and say hello for me.back to top
Simon The Bullet Freak
Greater than to face it, give me your money.
Make my life sunny for a day.
Road that leads to nowhere, please stop your crying.
I ain't fit for dying this way.

Go steal another with your eye.
Go try some other heartless lie.

Now I have hope of speaking, bring back the moon.
Don't play your silly games with me.
Oh what a waste of daydream. What is your need?
I'm gonna bleed until you pay.

You've lost all sign of your direction.
You're only looking for the next one.
The next one to kill.

Ashes of destruction spread out so far.
Blackened nurses crying over me.
See a one time city, now just a scar.
Tears of the flower man fill the sea.

Give me a chance to fly away.
There's nothing here for me today.
Today.

Simon and the bullet freak.

Salisbury
Somewhere in your eye, that very special glow.
Something drawing me, to where, I do not know.
I never really thought that I would lose myself.
But now I'm going faster than anybody else.
You move without a sound, touch me with your hand
just like the rain that fondles every grain of sand.
This thing we're gonna do, it's just for you and me.
I'm gonna make it good, good as it can be.

Your kiss is sweeter now, your breath is getting warm.
We must take our time and last it through till dawn.
I wonder will it be? Oh, I expect it to.
There have been other girls, but no one else like you.
I feel a power here I've never felt before.
And I begin to see what drives us to want more.
Oh god of all my dreams, please tell me if I'm wrong.
Because I think you have been in love.

As time past, and all too fast, I just knew it couldn't last.
And I guess that the end was near at hand.
Oh we tried our love inside, it just crumbled up and died.
What went wrong I will never, never understand.
You tell me why.

Alone again - how could you leave me.
Alone again - I don't want to be.
Alone again - yeah!

There's a line, in a rhyme, I was going to send to you.
It says: All that is to be will surely be.
So, though you had to go 'cause you needed someone new,
is there still a chance that you'll come back to me?
I want you back you see.

Alone again - how could you leave me.
Alone again - I don't want to be.
Alone again - yeah!

Somewhere in your eye, that very special glow.
Something drawing me, to where, I do not know.
I never really thought that I would lose myself.
But now I'm going faster than anybody else.
You move without a sound and touch me with your hand
just like the rays that fondle every grain of sand.
This thing we're gonna do, it's just for you and me.
