Forlorn – Heroes lyrics

Where are the heroes that courage revealed
The battle-bright warriors who strode to the field
Of the war, their swords a light in the frey
The heroes are gone, they have all passed away

Where are the earls who led in the van
The chieftains and kings who held sway in the land
Of our fathers, revered in story and song
They have all passed away, now our heroes are gone

Where are the unsung who silently strove
The women and children and all the unknown
Who were models upon which to pattern our deeds
Those heroes are gonem from this life they are freed

And now in this time of the dark of the sun
Remember what's ended is only begun
As sun sets each evening, she rises at morn
To the halls of the gods are the heroes reborn

And we, who with valor must conquer each day
We to are heroes as gallant as they
With truth as our banner and courage our lights
We will come to those halls when we tread the long night

So lift up a toast with the ale-filled horn
To those who have faced well their wyrd and are gone
Live well your life and tradiotions all keep
Drink to the gods and to hero this midwinters eve
