Myths and Legends Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level LightListener
1. Aurora Borealis (4:35)
I see in the northern sky
Again the magic of the winter night
Like colourful dancing curtains
I will never forget this moment

According to the legend
When foxes made fire
Sparks they whisked
Up into the sky

Chorus
I'm the child so favoured
Under bright mystic glow
Now she is whispering for me
The goddess of dawn

Aurora is calling me
My name is written into the solar winds
like flames in the sky burning bright
I'm the child, conceived under the northern lights

According to the legend
When foxes made fire
Sparks they whisked
Up into the sky

I'm the child so favoured
Under bright mystic glow
Now she is whispering for me
The goddess of dawn

stoptime
the Sky is turning red like bloodshed
On the battlefield of many thousands dead
Listen to the mystic sounds when spirits are whispering
And singing for the god of north wind

According to the legend
When foxes made fire
Sparks they whisked
Up into the sky

I'm the child so favoured
Under bright mystic glow
Now she is whispering for me
The goddess of dawn
2. Cut 'Em Down (5:15)
They came across the sea
Landed in the coast of Pommer
They entered to south saxony
During the thirty years war

from Breitenfeld to Lutzen
from Leipzig to Lens
The Battle after one by one
The were ready to the next

The finnish light cavalrymen
With the helmets and the swords
The warhorses ready to fight
Across the rivers they forded

In the service of king Gustavus
With their glory and their pride
They raided, attacked savagely
Through the enemy front they rode

No mercy to the enemies
Dust clouds, finnhorses breath
Fight with courage to the end
From dusk till the dawn of death

Their strength and camaraderie
Their battlefield success
They were well-respected
By their adversaries

Chorus
Attack - Scream your warcry
Fight proud with courage - Before you die
Attack - Scream "Cut 'em down"
Kill 'em all now - Burn down their town



"Our fatherland awaits us in the land of the snow
blazing flames in our beach and storms strongly blows
our hands fill the air with our strong mighty swords
there faith and the honour of brotherhood strongly glows
they forded across the Neva, snorting horses like war-beasts
and swan over Vistula like hurrying to their feast
like the avengers they bring their sabres over the Rhine
'til from the Danube they all drank the emperor's wine"

Poetically partly translated by Tears Of Magdalena
of original swedish verses from The Finnish cavalry'battle
march by Zacharius Topelius.



With a leather armor and a breastplacte of steel
they fired the pistols then draw the sword
3. Immortal Love (5:31)
It's a long time ago
Do you remember the place
where we fisrt time met and now again
Our love lit like a flame

You told me I'm your light
in the dark side of your life
and your heart will burn for me
in eternity

Chorus
Even if nightstars would fall or sun would rise no more
My heart and my soul belongs to you
Even if mountains would fall or storms would break the walls
My love and my life belongs to you

I don't want to live
without your love that I need
I want to soar like a seagull
You are the wind under my wings

Forever we dare to try
Together we learn to fly
searching peaceful place of world
for better life

Even if nightstars would fall or sun would rise no more
My heart and my soul belongs to you
Even if mountains would fall or storms would break the walls
My love and my life belongs to you

Let me show you my world
Let me sail across the seas
with you to the eternal land
somewhere there is promised island
and there we will find peace and love
away form sorrow and despair
and our love will be evergreen
in the paradise you've never seen

My darling can't you see
Oh darling you must believe me
Our love is immortal and it is real...

Even if nightstars would fall or sun would rise no more
My heart and my soul belongs to you
Even if mountains would fall or storms would break the walls
My love and my life belongs to you
4. The Eastway (4:56)
They came from the west
throught the storm across the sea
one thousand men armed
with their swords and shields

Somewere there was a strange land their never thought,
it would be so far from home

They sailed with their ships
across the rivers and lakes
with courage and pride
like proud sons of god Odin

The were varangians from the west - they were vikings,
the warriors of town holmgard

Then two tribes rebelled
against their conquerors
driving 'em overseas
back into their land

After conflicts the tries invited 'em back,
to rule 'em, to bring order and peace

They roamed the rivers
enganging in trade
merchants who raided
and colonized new lands

They served as the bodyguards of the emperor,
the warriors of town miklagard

Hej skål hej
hej skål hej
nu skålar vi för dig, hej hej

They sailed with their ships
across the rivers and lakes
with courage and pride
like proud sons of god Odin

The were varangians from the west - they were vikings,
the warriors of town holmgard

They served as the bodyguards of the emperor,
the warriors of town miklagard

Hej skål hej
hej skål hej
nu skålar vi för dig, hej hej
5. In The Silence (5:10)
Everyday I feel, so lonely
I'm bird in the cage
captive behind my bars
I've lost my lust to fly

Everyday I feel so sad
depressing thoughts in my mind
I want to sleep away
but I'm afraid to die

Chorus
In the silence
there's no peace
in the emptiness
there's no life

Everyday I feel unhappy
in my meaningless life
I'm sinking into despair
in the sea of distress

Everyday I feel so bad
depressing thoughts in my mind
I want to try once more
but I'm afraid to live

In the silence
there's no peace
in the emptiness
there's no life

War inside my head
I'm not sure, am I alive or dead?

soptime
In my dreams, there's no pain
in my dreams, I am free
in my dreams, like an eagle
in my dream, I am flying so high

In the silence
there's no peace
in the emptiness
there's no life

War inside my head
I'm not sure, a I alive or dead?
6. Nightmare (4:35)
I have seen a nightmare -
one terrible scary dream
whhen devil came to me
and tried to take my heart

You tried to scream, you tried to breath
when devil spread its wings
and tried to strangle you
in your bed at night

Was this true or a dream, I didn't know
until i woke up frightened again

Chorus
Dancing with the devil
dancing all your life
you had no love
only broke dreams

Every night in my dreams
it haunted in my mind
"what do you want from me,
leave me alone" - I screamed

Your heart is the gate,
and your love is the key
the way from hereafter
back to the mortal world

When I had all my love
but for nobody to give it

Dancing with the devil
dancing all your life
you had no love
only broke dreams

Stoptime
When you give your love to me
I will bury my bad dreams
and then this evil will ends
and love will live forever
for you - and for me...

Dancing with the devil
dancing all your life
you had no love
only broke dreams
7. Mermaid (5:11)
Into the blue, where seaweed grows
there is home of sea-maiden
I sink with your last breath
until I kiss ur lips

I follow your shadow
'til I find my sweet
I cry for you, flow my tears

Chours
Where are you my prince, my dear
I'm your mermaid in your dream
I'm waiting your under depp blue sea
come here my darlin' and release me

Into the blue, where seahorses swim
there is home of sea-maiden
dive with me into the unknown
until I touch your soul

I follow your shadow
'til I fall in love
I sing for you, burying all your fears

Where are you my prince, my dear
I'm your mermaid in your dream
I'm waiting your under depp blue sea
come here my darlin' and release me

Stoptime

In the middle of the night
when the moonlight is so bright
form the deepness of black ocean
she will come and sing again...

Where are you my prince, my dear
I'm your mermaid in your dream
I'm waiting your under depp blue sea
come here my darlin' and release me
8. Your Blood Is My Wine (4:56)
She came to me
in the middle of the night
again into my dreams
like an innocent child

I'm your beast of the night
if you call my name
I'm your wildest dream
be my wicked game

Chrous
Let me bite your neck
your innocent soul will be mine
let me taste your mortal blood
'cos your blood is my wine

Her icy sweet and bloody kiss
I felt on my lips
her bare body, pale as death
I touched her virgin skin

I give my love yto you
if you join me
together we will ride
behind black cold sea

Let me bite your neck
your innocent soul will be mine
let me taste your mortal blood
'cos your blood is my wine

Stoptime
Have you ever dream of
a place you've never seen
take my hand
and come with me

I let her lure me -
our last journey
into the paradise
has just begun...

Let me bite your neck
your innocent soul will be mine
let me taste your mortal blood
'cos your blood is my wine
