Stage-Shaker

to the tune of Rainmaker

When I was listening to a Maiden gig I have on DVD
I heard a riff from Heaven calling out to me
I had the feeling that this fast-paced solo shook the venue's ground
I turned my face towards the guitar sound

And I know, when he plays, then you feel the same as me
And I dream, that once more, on a stage I can him see
And the smile on his face, like the smile he leaves on us
Heals our wounds, they are now far away

I tell you, he can shake the stage
I tell you, impros are his rage
I tell you he can play and also smile our tears away
I tell you, he can shake the stage
I tell you, impros are his rage
I tell you with his play he'll move our heart to tears ....

And I know, when he plays, then you feel the same as me
And I dream, that once more, on a stage I can him see
And the smile in our hearts, like the smile upon his face
Heals our wounds, they are now far away

I tell you, he can shake the stage
I tell you, impros are his rage
I tell you he can play and also smile our tears away
I tell you, he can shake the stage
I tell you, impros are his rage
I tell you with his play he'll move our heart to tears ....

And I know, when he plays, then you feel the same as me
And I dream, that once more, on a stage I can him see
And the smile in our hearts, like the smile upon his face
Heals our wounds, they are now far away
