  • Lyrics
  • This is the last song in the Charlotte Saga, which is a series of Iron Maiden songs featuring the same character ("Charlotte the Harlot" and "22 Acacia Avenue" and "Hooks In You" are the others). In this song, Charlotte meets a man on a motorcycle and she rides with him. The line, "They took a spill at the devil's bend" means they wreck and Charlotte dies. >>
