BALLAD OF THE SWORDS Lyrics:Frode Glesnes Music:Audun Wold, Gerhard Storesund & Frode Glesnes Across the moor we norsemen rode & skalds to us song That days of glory soon should be When swords blood-red were swung "One eyed father give us strength my brave kinsmen & I In Valhalla I your mighty men will meet if I in this battle die >From the sky your ravens watching me Both of them I see Thank you Father for letting me know You watch over me" At the moor the ravens spoke to me While skalds did their song A bitter loss was soon to come For those I were among Across the moor we norsemen rode & skalds to us sung That days of glory soon should be When swords blood-red were swung I say to you - I ask you to For once be your own lord Come with me be a part of my Ballad of the swords A sudden clash where swords were drawn was the beginning of my end With a norsemans pride & courage I fought I would to Hel them send Instead I felt cold chilling steel Stab me from behind A cravens deed, indeed it was Peace he should not find Faded I did, strange beauty I met The dream for me came true Brought up I were, Bifrost I saw My mortal life were through Your mortal life with children & wife Wouldn't have no value if you knew as I About life up here You would die to be here forever...
