The verse has the same chords that the part above, but they're
played with distortion. Hear very carefully the song so you can catch
the rhythm.

Here are the lyrics:

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

[Solo]

(The easy part)

{Solo-Really-Fast-Difficult-To-Catch}

[Solo]

(Again, an easy part)

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------10-6-8~-------10-6-8-6----------------------------------------------|
G|-7-7-7---------7-7-7----------------10-7-9~-------10-7-9-5--------7-3-5----|
D|------------------------------8-8-8---------8-8-8-----------5-5-5----------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------10-7-9-------7----7-5---5-7---7-5---5-------------------------------|
D|-7-7-7--------10-7--7--7-----7-----7-----7---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then, comes the Chorus again, the last verse, and the outro,
that is similar to the Intro, so you can get it easy.

If you have an idea about the Really-Fast-Solo, or if you


want to talk about another Iron Maiden's Tab, feel free to drop me
some lines about it.
