Ed Sheeran – I See Fire lyrics

Oh misty eye of the mountain below
Keep careful watch of my brothers' souls
And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
Keep watching over Durin sons

If this is to end in fire
Then we should all burn together
Watch the flames climb high
Into the night
Calling out father, oh,
Stand by and we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side, high

And if we should die tonight
Then we should all die together
Raise a glass of wine
For the last time
Calling out father, oh,
Prepare as we will
Watch the flames burn over and on the mountain side
Desolation comes upon the sky

(Chorus)
Now I see fire
Inside the mountain
I see fire
Burning the trees
And I see fi-i-ire
Hollowing souls
And I see fi-i-i-ire
Blood in the breeze
And i hope that you remember me


Oh should my people fall then
Surely I'll do the same
Confined in mountain halls
We got too close to the flame

Calling out father, oh,
Hold fast and we will
Watch the flames burn over and on
The mountain side

Desolation comes upon the sky

(Chorus)
Now I see fire
Inside the mountain
I see fire
Burning the trees
And I see fi-i-ire
Hollowing souls
And I see fi-i-i-ire
Blood in the breeze
And i hope that you remember me

[Bridge]
And if the night is burning I will cover my eyes
For if the dark returns then my brothers will die
And as the sky is falling down it crashed into this lonely town
And with that shadow upon the ground I hear my people screaming out

(Chorus)
And I see fire
Inside the mountain
I see fire
Burning the trees
And I see fi-i-ire
Hollowing souls
And I see fi-i-i-ire
Blood in the breeze

And I see fire
(oh you know I saw a city burning)
Fire
And I see fire
(feel the heat upon my skin)
Fire
And I see fire
(oooh)
And I see fire burning over and on the mountain side.

    The whole purpose of the song is to show the feelings that both Thorin and Bard during the attack of Smaug on lake town. The meaning is far from being for The Desolation of Smaug it's more for this song shows how that loyal people that are willing to do anything for their friends thus the line " And if we should die tonight Then we should all die together".
