Now you all know
The bards and their songs
When hours have gone by
I'll close my eyes
In a world far away
We may meet again
But now hear my song
About the dawn of the night
Let's sing the bards' song

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

There's only one song
Left in my mind
Tales of a brave man
Who lived far from here
Now the bard songs are over
And it's time to leave
No one should ask you for the name
Of the one
Who tells the story

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow all will be known
And you're not alone
So don't be afraid
In the dark and cold
'Cause the bards' songs will remain
They all will remain

In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind
These songs of hobbits, dwarfs and men
And elves
Come close your eyes
You can see them too

    This song discusses the role of the bards of old. Bards gave people a temporary escape their worries and fears: "the fear of today / it will be gone / due to our magic songs".

    Bards' listeners might be sick of cold, harsh reality, where things are not always fair. But the bards reassured their audiences that goodness and courage still exist, by telling tales of strength and valor: "tales of a brave man / who lived far from here", and later, "and you're not alone / so don't be afraid ... 'cause the bards' songs will remain".

    The bards also comforted their audiences by telling them that, somewhere, someone had the courage to fight for their society's ideals and values. Amid the frigid bleakness and apathy of the real world, bards reassured their listeners that heroism and valor still exist. And of course, the songs also provided a sort of companionship. "and you're not alone / so don't be afraid / in the dark and cold / 'cause the bards' songs will remain".

    Bards would travel from village to village, performing their songs and poems: "tomorrow will take us away / far from home". We can imagine that the life of a travelling bard could be a lonely one, because they were always among strangers.

    There is also a bitter irony in the role of the bard. Being a bard was a respected profession, but most of their names have been lost. But their songs, like the odyssey or beowulf, have outlived them by centuries. The lyrics lament this bitter irony, stating, "no one will ever know our names / but the bards' songs will remain".
