"Iron Maiden" Wrote a Song About Me and Didn't Even Know It

So I was listening to "Fear of the Dark" or actually I am right now, anyhow, decided to check out the lyrics as some of the words always escaped me when I was singing along. So I pull up a site and read what it says... MOST of this song explains me to a tee.. crazy

I am a man who walks alone
And when I'm walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park -
NOT Me

When the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when it's dark

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there -
Me ALL THE TIME. Just ask the wife.

Have you run your fingers down the wall
And have you felt your neck skin crawl
When you're searching for the light?
Sometimes when you're scared to take a look
At the corner of the room
You've sensed that something's watching you -
I felt that way in a cave once.

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there -
See above.

Have you ever been alone at night
Thought you heard footsteps behind
And turned around and no one's there? -
YES
And as you quicken up your pace
You find it hard to look again
Because you're sure there's someone there -
ABSOLUTELY

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there -
See above

Fear of the dark, Fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, Fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, Fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, Fear of the dark

Watching horror films the night before
Debating witches and folklore
The unknown troubles on your mind
Maybe your mind is playing tricks
You sense and suddenly eyes fix
On dancing shadows from behind -
YES, that and watching "GhostHunters"

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there -
See Above

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there -
See Above

When I'm walking a dark road
I am a man who walks alone
- Hell No!
