"Wildest Dreams" as written by Stephen Percy Harris and Adrian Frederick Smith....
I'm gonna organize some changes in my life
I'm gonna exorcise the demons of my past
I'm gonna take the car and hit the open road
I'm feeling ready to just open up and go

And I just feel I can be anything
That all I might ever wish to be
And fantasize just what I want to be
Make my wildest dreams come true

I'm on my way
Out on my own again
I'm on my way
Out on the road again

When I remember back to how that things just used to be
And I was stuck inside a shroud of misery
I felt I'd disappeared so deep inside myself
I couldn't find a way to break away my hell

When I'm feeling down and low
I vow I'll never be the same again
I just remember what I am
And visualize just what I'm gonna be

I'm on my way
Out on my own again
I'm on my way
Out on the road again

I'm on my way
Out on my own again
I'm on my way
I'm gonna breakaway

    General CommentI think it's about going out and doing your own thing, not to follow the well trodden path.

    General CommentIt seems to describe how he felt as a kid, dreaming about becoming a rock star. He wanted to break away from the regular people and become a star, he wanted to break the mold. This song has great lyrics but the music isn't as good as many Maiden songs.

    I'm not sure who wrote the song, but I believe it was Bruce.

    verse, I can really relate to it. It pretty much describes how most of 2006 was for me up till a couple of months ago.

    General CommentI think the vid compliments the music well tbh, because it symbolises the idea of hitting the road, having the action you need in life, getting out into the world and showing it your out to kick ass and show the world you are someone, not just a normal person, but you can do something................................LIVE! it's like breaking your way out of all the bad things in life, turning around, giving them the finger, getting on a bike or into a car and leaving them behind forever

    General CommentIt is about being FREE. Take your own way, do what you want... Sounds punk, but is a great song. Perfect for traveling.

    General CommentThis was actually written by Steve Harris. It was inspired by Steve Harris's divorce from his wife Lorraine in 1993. He wrote this song like "Fuck you, I don't need your shit, I'll be just fine without you."
    AWESOME!

    General CommentHa ha! It's about Harris's divorce, is it. When I read the lyrics I immediately thought that it's about overcoming depression, and feeling great to have put behind all the moments of darkness felt within. This song is almost rock with its straightforward rhythm and the way the refrain goes.
