Em Em               G G         D D
From the coast of gold across the seven seas

Im travellin on far and wide

But now it seems Im just a stranger to myself
D D
And all the things I sometimes do

It isnt me but someone else

I close my eyes and think of home
Em Em G G D D
Another city goes by in the night

About this song

Wasted Years was the fourteenth single released by Iron Maiden and the first from their Somewhere in Time album. Released in 1986, it was the first single to be written by guitarist Adrian Smith alone. It reached number 18 in the UK charts. The cover depicts Eddie's point of view as he flies a spaceship chasing the Doctor's TARDIS. A similar Doctor Who reference can be seen on the back of the Somewhere in Time case, where the Doctor's TARDIS is parked on a rooftop.
