Folkearth – When Long Ships Arrive lyrics

The secrets of the wind
Are whispered to the leaves
The song of hidden creeks
In the bronzing Autumn light
Elven dance in the twilight... The riddles of the sea
Raise a murmur to the shore
O mermaid, answer me!
Where's now the hero
Did he stand or did he fall?
I yearn for the tide
When long ships arrive
Underneath the amber sky
Wherein Odin's ravens fly!

Rolling thunder in the distance
A heavy rain begins to pour
I welcome the chariot of Thor
The wrath of heavens above
Full of pride I raise my sword!
The dying sound of battle horns
The screams subside on the field
The creek I knew so long ago
Now red it foams and rolls
Carrying my blood to Valhalla's hall!
I yearn for the tide
When long ships arrive
Underneath the amber sky
Wherein Odin's ravens fly!
