The Wizard
While Uriah Heep is primarily known for the song "Easy Livin'" from their landmark album "Demons and Wizards", its opening track "The Wizard" has always been my all-time favorite by the band.

He was the Wizard of a thousand kings And I chanced to meet him one night wandering He told me tales and he drank my wine Me and my magic man, kinda feeling fine He had a cloak of gold and eyes of fire And as he spoke, I felt a deep desire To free the world of its fear and pain And help the people to feel free again Why don't we listen to the Voices in our hearts? 'Cause then I know we'd find We're not so far apart Everybody's got to be happy Everyone should sing For we know the joy of life Peace and love can bring So spoke the Wizard In his mountain home The vision of his wisdom Means we'll never be alone And I will dream of my magic night And the million silver stars That guide me with their light
