all Uriah Heep lyrics



Gypsy
I was only seventeen,
I fell in love with a gypsy queen.
She told me - hold on!

Her father was the leading man,
said "You're not welcome on our land."
and then as a foe, he told me to go.

He took me to a little shack
and put a whip across my back
then told her - leave me.

I was out for quite a time,
came back with her on my mind.
Sweet little girl - she means all the world.

Though I want my gypsy queen,
will she still be torn between
her father and mother?

One day I will go to him
strong enough to fight and win.
The kind of a man that he'll understand.back to top
Walking In Your Shadow
I'm walking in your shadow ever since you went away.
And the clock on the wall really hasn't very much to say.
Oh, you left me bleeding
and left me needing - you.

In so very many ways I was trying to attract your mind.
But I'm the lonely one cause I had to leave it all behind.
Lied and decieving,
why should I be grieving - you?

Ride on a golden wing.
Set sail for the sun.
Make every cloud your slave.
Don't be alone.

When I get back from my trip of the ocean wide.
Still walking in your shadow and still looking for somewhere to hide.
If I am worse off,
it's all because of - you.
It's all because of you.

Ride on a golden wing.
Set sail for the sun.
Make every cloud your slave.
Don't be alone.

When I get back from my trip of the ocean wide.
Still walking in your shadow and still looking for somewhere to hide.
If I am worse off,
it's all because of - you.
It's all because of you.back to top
Come Away Melinda
Daddy, daddy, come and look! See what I have found!
a little ways away from here, while digging in the ground.
Come away Melinda.
Come in and close the door.
It's nothing, just a picture book
they had befor the war.

Daddy, daddy, come and see! Daddy come and look!
Why there's four or five little Melinda girls inside my picture book.
Come away Melinda.
Come in and close the door.
There were lots of little girls like you
before they had the war.

Oh daddy, daddy, come and see! Daddy hurry do!
Why there's someone in a pretty dress, she's all grown up like you.
Won't you tell me why?
Come away Melinda.
Come in and close the door.
That someone is your mommy
you had before the war.

Daddy, daddy, tell me if you can.
Why can't things be the way they were before the war began?
Come away Melinda.
Come in and close the door.
The answer lies in yesterday
before they had the war.back to top
Bird Of Prey
I can see that look that sends me where
you try to move in closer if you dare.
So I will sit and play my waiting game.
And for a while I know you'll do the same.
Oh No!

Watches like an eagle from its tree,
then like a bird of prey she captured me.
But I am older and more wise than you.
Bird of prey - straight into me you fool.
Oh No!

Now every time I try to set her free - Yeah! Ooh!
I'm glad to say she comes right back to me - Ah!
But if I knew she didn't want to stay - Yeah! Ooh Ah!
I wouldn't try to keep that lovely bird of prey - Ooh Ah!
Ooh Ah!back to top
Dreammare
Grinning demons, smiling sideways, laughing in my face.
Here within my troubled sleep is such a lonely place.
Running fast but never moving, I can't get away.
Strange but realistic objects making me their prey.
Then it's gone as fast as it came - evil dream.
Changing like the sun turns to rain - it would seem.

Dining with the gods of beauty on a distant shore.
Tasting foods of untold sweetness never seen before.
Dancing stars with crystal voices beckon with their eyes.
Unicorn of many colors rides to paradise.
Then it's gone as fast as it came - peaceful scene.
Changing like the sun turns to rain - it would seem.

Sleepless nights, that last a lifetime, crucify my head.
Dreams of peace and then disaster - wish that I were dead.
Looking for the end of darkness, seeking out the day.
For escape with speed of thought is bearing me away.
Then it's gone as fast as it came - evil dream.
Changing like the sun turns to rain - it would seem.

Come into my dreammare!back to top
Real Turned On
Girl before you go now, there's one thing I wanted to do.
______________________, cause I want to make love to you.
You got me real turned on - yes you have.

But there's something in your eyes telling me you have to go.
Something in your eyes, but you're trying not to let it show.
You got me real turned on.

Next time you come over, I'll buy you a bottle of wine.
Just take a little drink and everything will turn out fine - yes it will.

Whoa baby, do you know what I have in mind?
Can you guess what it is or do you want it underlined?
You got me real turned
got me real turned
got me real turned
got me real turned on.back to top
I'll Keep On Trying
You came to me with all of your lies
and I was taken in so well.
Took me quite a time to see the disguise,
you made it very hard to tell.
Now here you are again but you're beggin' in vain
cause I really don't want to know.

You came to me with a little bit of charm,
you had me down on my knees.
I didn't really think there was any harm,
but all you ever did was tease.
You took all the love that I ever had to give
and there was nothing left to show.

Well I remember everything,
everything around me.
The long dark winter till the breath of spring
came close enough to drown me.
So I'm gonna keep on trying - till I feel like dying
and I lay down and pass away.
But that wont happen till tomorrow - and by then I can borrow
another day. So I'm gonna keep on trying.

You came to me with a little bit of charm
and you had me down on my knees.
I didn't really think there was any harm,
but all you ever did was tease.
You took all the love that I ever had to give
and there was nothing left to show.back to top
Wake Up (Set Your Sights)
Wake up! Set your sights! For never shall we fail.
Stand up for your rights and justice will prevail.
You're listening through endless nights
and decision is your goal.
So wake up! Set your sights! For the time is right for your role.
Yeah - for your role.
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Set your sights!
Never, never, never shall we fail.
Stand up, stand up, stand up for your rights.
Justice, justice, justice will prevail.

There in the morning, flying over the hills.
While men are yawning they are crushed by our wheels.
Never have I witnessed people in fear.
Not like today, not in many a year.
Go kill another, there are more close behind.
No screams of mother, are you out of your mind?
Though they are shattered they just don't seem to yield.
Bodies are scattered in all parts of the field.
Oh No! Did I tell you what would happen if you tried?
"Oh God, stop this killing!" said a young man before he died.

Wake up! Set your sights! For never shall we fail.
Stand up for your rights and justice will prevail.back to top
