Manowar – Defender lyrics

When you are old enough to read this words
Their meaning will unfold
These words all that's left
And though weve never meet, my only son
I hope you know
That I would have been there to watch you grow
But my call was heard and I did go
Now your mission lies ahead of you
As it did mine so long ago
To help the helpless ones who all look up to you
And to defend them to the end

Ride like the wind
Fight proud, my son
Youre the defender
God has sent

Father, father, father
I look up to you and heed thy call
This letter ends my search
Ill live your dream now passed on to me
And I now wait to shake the hand of fate
Like the dusk awaiting dawn

So wizards cast your spell
With no heart to do me well
So it's written, it shall be

Ride like the wind
Fight proud, my son
Youre the defender
God has sent
