Lloegyr Lyrics

Submitted by level Tinfeer
1. The Ancient Way (10:02)
we walk in cold and desolate lands
we talk of wonders that have passed

like finely wrought steel in a circle of stone
or freshly spilt blood that dries in the snow
through forests we walk in the tallest oak groves
but all doth now pass to the new from the old

for all that once was, to the gods we do pray
by breath and by blood for the Ancient Way
the call of our time we feel on the wind
with heart and with soul for the old ways we sing

from heaven to mountain top - ocean to vale - it's calling but slipping away
from forest to rolling plain - river to stone - it's falling and so now we pray

oh, for the Ancient Way - all that is gone and one day forgotten
oh, for the Ancient Way - falling like leaves or like blood in the rain
oh, for the Ancient Way - all that is gone and one day forgotten
oh, for the Ancient Way - falling like leaves or like blood in the rain

the fire that once did burn so bright fades to embers and casts no light
the wind that once did boldly roar slowly dies and blows no more
the waves that once did beat the land run so dry against the sand
the stones that once did stand so tall slowly break, topple and fall

the fire that once did burn so bright fades to embers and casts no light
the wind that once did boldly roar slowly dies and blows no more
the waves that once did beat the land run so dry against the sand
the stones that once did stand so tall slowly break, topple and fall

we walk in cold and desolate lands
we talk of wonders that have passed

like the breath of the Gods that soars in the sky
or the crossing of souls of those who have died
through rivers we walked in spray and in tide
but all that has passed we hold in our minds

for all that once was will pass out of sight
by dusk and by death it falls into night
the loss of our age we hear on the wind
with sorrow and tears of the old ways we sing

from heaven to mountain top - ocean to vale - it's calling but slipping away
from forest to rolling plain - river to stone - it's falling and so now we pray

oh, for the Ancient Way - all that is gone and one day forgotten
oh, for the Ancient Way - falling like leaves or like blood in the rain
oh, for the Ancient Way - all that is gone and one day forgotten
oh, for the Ancient Way - falling like leaves or like blood in the rain

oh, for the Ancient Way - all that is gone and one day forgotten
oh, for the Ancient Way - falling like leaves or like blood in the rain
oh, for the Ancient Way - all that is gone and one day forgotten
oh, for the Ancient Way - falling like leaves or like blood in the rain
2. The Sword (5:27)
born in a forge with a mother of fire
the hammers sweet song breaks the silent night
a warriors tool is our one desire
as metal takes form in the flickering light

the sword

flames are fed - the bellows raging
heat fills the air - the crucibles glow
red hot is the iron the smith is beating
the air doth ring with the thundering blows

the sword

wail does the steam and boil does the water
again and again as the steel takes shape
a channel for blood - an edge of razor
such glorious work the fire creates

the sword

gone are the flames and cold is the anvil
now our blade lays within the ash
with a face so pale like a sea so tranquil
infused with strength when the shieldwalls clash

so cold, the iron grows
so cold as the wind and snow
so cold, the iron grows
so cold as the wind and snow

for with our shields gripped tight
with iron by my side
onwards we march to fight
to bring death we ride

as we strike the enemy line
steel on flesh and bone does grind
swords work and shoulders ache
we fight until our enemies break

with arms soaked in blood
we butcher men in the mud
into every breach we storm
through battered walls we swarm

in amongst the fleeing men
trampling the cleaved faceless dead
our blades do rise and fall
sword song I hear you call

so cold, the iron grows
so cold as the wind and snow
so cold, the iron grows
so cold as the wind and snow

as the sword arm swings the iron sings
raise your sword up high for victory is nigh

as the sword arm swings the iron sings
our enemies shall bleed once more
raise your sword up high for victory is nigh
our enemies shall breathe no more

born in a forge with a mother of fire
the hammers sweet song breaks the silent night

so cold, the iron grows
so cold as the wind and snow
so cold, the iron grows
so cold as the wind and snow

as the sword arm swings the iron sings
raise your sword up high for victory is nigh

as the sword arm swings the iron sings
our enemies shall bleed once more
raise your sword up high for victory is nigh
our enemies shall breathe no more
3. So Begins the War (5:46)
as the kiss of dawn glints off one thousand blades
and oaths are sworn and promises are made
we will stand and fight as brothers we do say
and side by side shall see another day of this war

and so it begins - and so begins the war

as I grip my sword
for my fate I knew I would
born in a forge
the steel we'll quench in blood

as the horns do call us across the bridge of swords
we are honour bound - and so begins the war
as the sun may rise for the last time
onwards we march to fight and die

with our strength and pride
on adventure we embark
to glory we ride
from our families depart

we shed no tears
as far from home we march
and feel no fear
as courage fills our hearts

and so it begins - and so begins the war
and so it begins - and so begins the war

to the sky I raise my sword
and so it begins
to the sky I raise my sword
and so it begins
and so begins the war
to the sky I raise my sword
and so it begins
and so begins the war

as our flags unfurled
lift in the morning wind
with voices raised
of our heroes we do sing
armoured in faith
the gods shall save our skins
when new day breaks
our victory we win

as the horns do call us across the bridge of swords
we are honour bound - and so begins the war
as the sun may rise for the last time
onwards we march to fight and die

and so it begins - and so begins the war
and so it begins - and so begins the war

as the horns do call us across the bridge of swords
we are honour bound - and so begins the war
as the sun may rise for the last time
onwards we march to fight and die
4. Four Warriors (5:44)
for I am the earth - the mountains my home
my heart made from rock - my shield made from stone
for this is my kingdom - my home and my land
as strong as the oak - with the forests I stand

four warriors' journey begins
four warriors' journey begins

for I am the air - the sky and the storm
in the strength of the wind my fury is born
I strike from the heavens with a cast of my spear
my roar from above shall cause all men to fear

four warriors' journey begins
four warriors' journey begins

as time goes by - on its wings we fly
through shadows and dust we leave death behind
as life goes by - on its winds we shall fly
through shadows and death we leave time behind

four warriors' journey begins
four warriors' journey begins

for I am the fire - the light and the flame
the wild - the beast - I shall not be tamed
I bring the end with a stroke of my sword
of blood and of death I am the one lord

for I am the oceans - the rivers and rain
the crash of the waves brings the song of my name
I am the depths - eternal - unbound
drink from this cauldron and forever be drowned

as time goes by - on its wings we fly
through shadows and dust we leave death behind
as life goes by - on its winds we shall fly
through shadows and death we leave time behind

as time goes by - on its wings we fly
through shadows and dust we leave death behind
as life goes by - on its winds we shall fly
through shadows and death we leave time behind

four warriors' journey begins
four warriors' journey begins
5. Blood and Iron (6:26)
to defend our land with swords in hand
our lives we forsake as this is our fate
from homes we march to face this charge
we kiss goodbye to our children and our wives

we're coming with pride - with fire in our eyes
and prayers in our hearts that our swords shall find their mark
for all we hold dear we swallow all our fear
on this field we stand to battle to the man

for hope - for honour - for home - for hearth
for lands - for lords - for the gods we charge
for oaths - for gold - for my family I hold
blood red iron in my hands

for hope - for honour - for home - for hearth
for lands - for lords - for the gods we charge
for oaths - for gold - for my family I hold
blood red iron in my hands

like a storm we strike with steel and might
we shall hold the line as we fight or die
as we face the horde the host doth roar
with shoulders in our shields we step over those we kill

they fought with pride but now cold are their eyes
with stone in our hearts our swords shall find their mark
for all we hold dear we slaughter those we fear
in victory we stand as we butcher every man

with death and carnage all around
broken bodies choke the ground
in these dark days
blood and iron rule the world

with death and carnage close at hand
ravens rule this dying land
in these dark days
blood and iron rule the world

for hope - for honour - for home - for hearth
for lands - for lords - for the gods we charge
for oaths - for gold - for my family I hold
blood red iron in my hands

for hope - for honour - for home - for hearth
for lands - for lords - for the gods we charge
for oaths - for gold - for my family I hold
blood red iron in my hands

bold men's blood runs like rain
drowning in a sea of pain
bold men's blood runs like rain
drowning in a sea of pain

to war we ride
raise your sword to the sky
to war we ride
raise your sword to the sky

bold men's blood runs like rain
drowning in a sea of pain
bold men's blood runs like rain
drowning in a sea of pain

to war we ride
raise your sword to the sky
to war we ride
raise your sword to the sky

for hope - for honour - for home - for hearth
for lands - for lords - for the gods we charge
for oaths - for gold - for my family I hold
blood red iron in my hands

for hope - for honour - for home - for hearth
for lands - for lords - for the gods we charge
for oaths - for gold - for my family I hold
blood red iron in my hands

with death and carnage all around
broken bodies choke the ground
in these dark days
blood and iron rule the world

with death and carnage close at hand
ravens rule this dying land
in these dark days
blood and iron rule the world
6. Death in the Maiden's Arms (7:15)
her touch, like a summer's day
warms the heart like the sun's first ray
her skin, like a winter's snow
is perfect, unbroken, her beauty shows
her gaze, like a new spring dawn
is as fresh and bright as the early morn
her hair, like the autumn leaves
is soft in hand like a gentle breeze

as she lays her lips upon his brow
he forgets his blood that stains the ground
for in her arms, wrapped in her embrace
he's happy to meet his end of days
she'll banish the cold and light the dark
as to unknown shores he doth embark
for in her hands he feels no pain
and on the wind he hears her name

the maid of the land and sea

no shield could ever protect his heart
from the maiden's smile - no sword is as sharp
for helm and mail may save his skin
from blade and spear but not from within

he's been cut by arrow and cleaved by steel
though wounds to flesh are those that can heal
as one look in her eyes can forever entrance
those who dare join the maiden's dance

for all the beauty will never compare
to the wondrous face of the maid so fair
so hark the wind it calls her name
only she can stop this pain

for the maid as beautiful as land, sky and sea
he will whisper to the wind "dw i'n dy garu dee"
for one kiss of those lips is all that he seeks
he will ride into hell - he will fight - he will bleed

for the maid as beautiful as land, sky and sea
he will whisper to the wind "dw i'n dy garu dee"
for one kiss of those lips is all that he seeks
he will ride into hell - he will fight - he will bleed

with a face from the heavens she strikes from afar
she dulls the sun and outshines the stars
the goddess' beauty you cannot surpass
in the echoes of time it forever stands fast

for all the women will never compare
to the beautiful face of the maid so fair
so hark the wind it calls her name
only she can stop this pain

for the maid as beautiful as land, sky and sea
he will whisper to the wind "dw i'n dy garu dee"
for one kiss of those lips is all that he seeks
he will ride into hell - he will fight - he will bleed

for the maid as beautiful as land, sky and sea
he will whisper to the wind "dw i'n dy garu dee"
for one kiss of those lips is all that he seeks
he will ride into hell - he will fight - he will bleed

for all the beauty will never compare
to the wondrous face of the maid so fair
so hark the wind it calls her name
only she can stop this pain

for all the women will never compare
to the beautiful face of the maid so fair
so hark the wind it calls her name
only she can stop this pain

for the maid as beautiful as land, sky and sea
he will whisper to the wind "dw i'n dy garu dee"
for one kiss of those lips is all that he seeks
he will ride into hell - he will fight - he will bleed

for the maid as beautiful as land, sky and sea
he will whisper to the wind "dw i'n dy garu dee"
for one kiss of those lips is all that he seeks
he will ride into hell - he will fight - he will bleed
7. Onwards We March (1:31)
8. Battle to the End (5:16)
levelled spears in hand in the shieldwall we stand
steadfast and bold until our blood soaks the land
as our banners fly we march onwards to die
one thousand brothers raise their swords to the sky

as we sound the horn for the oaths we have sworn
we will serve and fight until our flesh has been torn
as I grip my sword we march onwards to war
one thousand brothers - won't you hear us roar

we shall march to the end - we shall battle until the last man falls

we fight in the shieldwall once again

as we face the horde those that answered the call
steadfast and bold until the last man doth fall
by the drum and pipe we march onwards to fight
one thousand brothers strike with an awesome might

with the mail on my back we prepare to attack
we will serve and fight until the blood runs black
to the gods I pray as we march onwards to slay
one thousand brothers cross the bridge today

we shall march to the end - we shall battle until the last man falls

we fight in the shieldwall once again

as the ravens fly - under banners we die
when victory is gone and hope is forlorn
as the wounded cry - for glory we die
in the shieldwall once again

one thousand brothers - raise your arms up high as we cross the bridge of swords
9. Journey Across the Bridge (2:08)
10. The Fallen (7:04)
one last song for the fallen and the brothers who have died
as I fill my tankard and I raise it to the sky
with sorrow in my heart and a tear in my eye
our voices shall echo through the night
with one last song

one last song by the pyres - by the heat of burning flames
we shall drink - we shall feast until it takes away our pain
we raise our voices up high again and again
and the night shall echo with their names
with one last song

I shall see you once more
across the bridge of swords
for in battle I shall meet my end

on the other side
I shall see you when I die
we shall feast and we shall drink once more

one last song for the fallen - one last song for the dead
one last song for the brothers who on the field have bled
one last song for the fallen - one last song for the dead
one last song for the brothers who on the field have bled

one last song for the fallen and the brothers who did bleed
as I fill my tankard with a tribute full of mead
with loss in my heart for my friends I do grieve
though they live through the tales of their deeds
with one last song

one last song by the pyres of the warriors who fell
we shall sing - we shall shout - of their enemies in hell
so raise your voices up high for the tales that we tell
though they die we say our last farewell
with one last song

I shall see you once more
across the bridge of swords
for in battle I shall meet my end

on the other side
I shall see you when I die
we shall feast and we shall drink once more

one last song for the fallen - one last song for the dead
one last song for the brothers who on the field have bled
one last song for the fallen - one last song for the dead
one last song for the brothers who on the field have bled

one last song we shall sing for the fallen
one last song we shall sing for the dead
one last song we shall sing for the fallen
one last song we shall sing for the dead

one last song for the fallen and the brothers who have died
as I fill my tankard and I raise it to the sky
with sorrow in my heart and a tear in my eye
our voices shall echo through the night
with one last song

I shall see you once more
across the bridge of swords
for in battle I shall meet my end

on the other side
I shall see you when I die
we shall feast and we shall drink once more

one last song for the fallen - one last song for the dead
one last song for the brothers who on the field have bled
one last song for the fallen - one last song for the dead
one last song for the brothers who on the field have bled

one last song we shall sing for the fallen
one last song we shall sing for the dead
one last song we shall sing for the fallen
one last song we shall sing for the dead

one last song we shall sing for the fallen
one last song we shall sing for the dead
one last song we shall sing for the fallen
one last song we shall sing for the dead

one last song we shall sing for the fallen
one last song we shall sing for the dead
one last song we shall sing for the fallen
one last song we shall sing for the dead
