River of Tuoni Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. River of Tuoni (3:03)
Along the black death-land river
The mother runs and tries to find her son
Searching for her lost hero she wades the river deep
to her belt in mud

Oh! Heavy-hearted am I
Tuoni has taken my son!

Oh! Heavy-hearted am I
Tuoni has taken my son!

Fear in her heart she calls her son,
as she rakes the Tuoni river and sees the black swan
Now she wades the river deeper to deathlands shoals and shallows
and finds her son

Oh! Heavy-hearted am I
Tuoni has taken my son!
2. My Wings Are My Eyes (3:16)
Spent years in tears
Drowned myself in fears
Lived in a cage filling
My life with rage

Tied my wings so tightly
Gravity felt mighty
Needed to feel the wind
Under my wings

[Refrain (2x):]
My wings are my eyes
I'm seeing the blue skies
I'll fly, I'll fly away
And will find my way

Lost the joy of living
Closed myself from feeling
Lost the ability to fly and flee

Left my world with tears
Iron cage with fears
Strengthened my wings
Now I'm learning to fly

[Refrain]
3. Lullaby (3:43)
Deep in the earth land of dead...... the dead are welcoming their king!
Deep in the earth lies a new born baby boy...

Hush, o precious child! Among the dead you rest in peace.
Hush, o infant king! The dead salute the son of darkness!
Hush, o precious child! Among the dead you rest in peace.
Hush, o infant king! The dead salute the son of darkness!

Ruler of dead sleep on the breast of the beast......... the corpses are ready and awake!
Doom shall face Earth upon your ascension......

Hush, o precious child! Among the dead you rest in peace
Hush, o infant king! The dead salute the son of darkness!
Hush, o precious child! Among the dead you rest in peace
Hush, o infant king! The dead salute the son of darkness!

You black-souled son of mine you'll reign the mighty kingdom of the dead
You'll make your mother proud, so sleep and dream until comes Night!

Hush, o precious child! Among the dead you rest in peace
Hush, o infant king! The dead salute the son of darkness!
Hush, o precious child! Among the dead you rest in peace
Hush, o infant king! The dead salute the son of darkness!
4. Valkyries (3:30)
Ravens over battlefield are marking the chosen
brave northern warriors to their last fight.

Shieldmaidens ride the wolves in the sky with ravens
scouting the battleground for souls of slain heroes.

Choosers of slain...

Valkyries ride through the night sky
singing fierce battle-cries,
Valkyries, choosers of slain, come ride their wolves!

Howling wolves in the night carrying female deities
escort the dead warriors to Odin's hall.

Armour of Valkyries flashes up over the skies
shading a strange light - the northern lights!

Choosers of slain...

Valkyries ride through the night sky
singing fierce battle-cries,
Valkyries, choosers of slain, come ride their wolves!
5. Fate of the Maiden (2:52)
Weeping maiden of the cold Northland
runs on through the fen and the forest
to the cold sea-shore.

She sat weeping on the dark seaside,
tears on the white sand made silver - pearls
they glow like moon.

'Cry no more for me, I ask of thee,
When I sink beneath the sea-foam.
I will make my bed in crystal waters,
water-ferns my cloak and pillow.'

In tears she saw the young fairy maidens
of the waters out at the dark sea
in cold moonlight.

Quick the maiden hastens out there
to join the mermaids calling out for her
to the deep blue sea.

'Cry no more for me, I ask of thee,
When I sink beneath the sea-foam.
I will make my bed in crystal waters,
water-ferns my cloak and pillow.'

With the roar of waters falls the maiden,
Falls to the deep blue sea.
With the roar of waters falls the maiden,
Falls to the deep boundless sea.
6. My Only Star (4:25)
After a day turns into a night
I will light up my light in the sky
Don't shed a tear on the ground I once laid
Cause I'll be here

From your tears I'll make a crystal necklace
To surround my heart and my chest
I'll be up here and walk by your side
Day and night

[Refrain:]
Look at me
Me here among the stars
Walking on milky way
Part of the eternity
Shining bright in the dark blue sky
Shining your love - my light
Waiting for you to shine by my side
Look, I am a star

Meet me in dreamland
Come, take my hand
I will guide your way
Don't be afraid
Hold me in your arms never let go
And be my own

Just for tonight I'll be in your dreams
Then I'll exist only in star streams
Remember me when you look at the sky
As time goes by

[Refrain:]
Look at me
Me here among the stars
Walking on milky way
Part of the eternity
Shining bright in the dark blue sky
Shining your love - my light
Waiting for you to shine by my side
Look, I am a star
7. Curse (4:07)
Come wind, come icy storm, come thundercloud!
Rise ruthless tempest and make lightning strike!

Wake up You in the bowels of the earth
- tremor the snowy fjells with all my hurt!

Run, now run you fool!
Your fate is to be doomed.
Lonely is the end of unfaithful one.

The price of what you've done
To make me feel so numb
Is to pay it all back with your life

Come wind, come icy storm, come thunder cloud!
Rise ruthless tempest and make lightning strike!

Wake up You in the bowels of the earth
- tremor the snowy fjells with all my hurt!

Run, now run you fool!
Your fate is to be doomed.
Lonely is the end of unfaithful one.

Now my aim is clear
Your payback time is near
Run to wilderness, I'll find you!

The winternight is harsh
It leaves no one a chance
With no pity I will leave you here.

Run, now run you fool!
Your fate is to be doomed.
Lonely is the end of unfaithful one!
8. Passing Bells (4:04)
Passing Bells
Call for me
In my shroud
I'm sentenced to death

Passing Bells
Call for me
In my shroud
I wait for final call

When the morning comes
I will hear the death drums
Calls for me the last march
Calls for me the last march

At the dead's door
I will feel no agony
And I'll accept my destiny
I'll accept my destiny

Passing Bells
Call for me
In my shroud
I'm sentenced to death

Passing Bells
Call for me
In my shroud
I wait for final call

For the last time
I will see the sky at morn
And walking towards ending
Walking towards ending

Still feel ?
Until I breathe my final breath
At last I will be free
At last I will be free
9. Sunrise (3:32)
Wind is blowing through my wounded soul
Darkness shades me as I'm longing and yearning
Darkness surrounds me swallowing me into endless night

[Refrain:]
Watching the moonlight
Waiting for sunrise
To bring the light into night!

Like a white rider
Riding on sun-rays
To take me back into light
Into light

Warm my soul and melt the ice of my heart
Melt the snow which covers up my broken chest
Poor heart is frozen longing for sunrise to melt the ice

[Refrain:]
Watching the moonlight
Waiting for sunrise
To bring the light into night!

Like a white rider
Riding on sun-rays
To take me back into light
Into light
10. Evil Inside Me (3:48)
Oh Father, now hear me! This sinner on her knees!
Oh Father, now hear me! This sinner on her knees!

When I turn my head towards your light I see this shadow
shading my eyes, fear I can't hide, evil's after my soul!
Dominating all my thoughts evil takes my soul.
Fear I cannot hide how dark pulls me away from your light!

Oh Father, come save me! The evil's after me!
Oh Father, come save me! The evil's after me!

Evil lurks under my skin there dwells an enemy within.
I am the worst what I fear - I'm the evil that is near.
Father hear me, evil's in me - I pray to save my soul!
Fear I cannot hide how dark pulls me away from your light!

Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum.
Amen.

Oh Father, come save me! The evil's after me!
Oh Father, come save me! The evil's after me!

Evil lurks under my skin there dwells an enemy within.
I am the worst what I fear - I'm the evil that is near.
Father hear me, evil's in me - I pray to save my soul!
Fear I cannot hide how dark pulls me away from your light!
