Lyrics

1. NJORD

The God of Storms will you hear me
The shore is close but I fear it
Fjord
I am lost on my course Gardarike
Caught in a fiery temper

Njord
When you touch the earth
With golden sun rays
Njord
Your white palace embraced in gold
Vanir God - I am Njord
Send me waves
Like silk from the East
Njord
And skin of a maiden's cheeks
Nine wave maidens arise

The ruler of winds will you save me
My hopes are strong but you guide me
I am lost on my course to Gardarike
Caught in a stormy weather

Storm lay down your sword
Silence your breath
Allay your tempest now
Ægir be aware
Be aware

Sea be calm and clear tonight
Silence your waves
Njord




2. MY DESTINY

My Destiny
I made a promise I couldn't keep
I left my love on northern ground
My Destiny
My Destiny....

I'm so lost, I am damned
In this grey lonely valley (I'm damned)
Starless night, so vast and so black
My prayers slowly sink to a whisper
I see your smile, but then I see your eyes
Through the mist of tears

I'm falling into the deep
I'm falling
Drowning in memories (My Destiny)
I made a promise
A promise
I'm drowning in destiny (My Destiny)
My Destiny
My Destiny....

All my hopes
Fearless pride
Drowned in smoke and ash (And Ash)
A color red
Forsaken blood on ice
The evening dance on me
And do you care
Where I sleep
Do you mind my destiny?

I'm falling into the deep
I'm falling
Drowning in memories (My Destiny)
I made a promise
A promise
I'm drowning in destiny (My Destiny)
My Destiny
My Destiny....

The color red
Blood on ice
The evening dance on me
Do you care
Where I sleep
Do you mind my destiny?

I'm falling into the deep
I'm falling, falling
Drowning in memories (My Destiny)
I made a promise
A promise
I'm drowning in destiny (My Destiny)
My Destiny
My Destiny....

My Destiny (It's My Destiny)
My Destiny (My Destiny)
My Destiny
My Destiny




3. EMERALD ISLAND

Ilathghlas Oileán i mo chroí
Fan liom go deo
Green Eden
Green Eden

Emerald Island
Can you hear me calling
Emerald Island
Can you hear me mourning

I turn around
I watch her disappearing
My path my life and soul
The ground of all my hopes
Stay with me
Stay with me

Hardly dare I to behold
The shore is turning small
She's fairer than the sun
Lovelier than any crown
Stay with me
Stay with me

My heart has grown resolute
My courage valiant
My strength may wish to turn
Though my spirit is awake
You hold my soul
I hold his soul
His heart filled with resolution
His courage valiant
May his strength never turn him down
For his spirit is guiding him




4. TAKE THE DEVIL IN ME

I am drifting away
I've counted my last days
Between my lips a silent cry

I swore to the Gods
I will let grace win
The battle of my hear

I cry for angels to save me
Take the devil in me
Save me for I've been mistaken
Save one moment of my life
Take the devil in me

A mind at peace with every spirit
Before I leave I shall forgive

My heart stops beating
It makes me see how bright life could have been




5. SACRBOROUGH FAIR

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
He once was a true love of mine

Tell him to make me a cambric shirt
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Without no seams nor needle work
Then he'll be a true love of mine

Tell him to reap it with a sickle of leather
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
And gather it all in a bunch of heather
Then he'll be a true love of mine

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
He once was a true love of mine

Tell him to find me an acre of land
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Between salt water and the sea strands
Then he'll be a true love of mine




6. THROUGH OUR VEINS

When nothing was
No sky no sea
But endless space within and around
No earth no sun no sound
Only silence to be found

Break the silence with your divine breath
Let the blood...
Run through our veins
Do you feel desire to arise
Will you be fire I'll be ice
Into the void we shall unite
Will you be the day I will be the night
Let the blood run through our veins

In distant times
When nothing flowered
Beneath the sun in soothing rain
No sand no ground no mountain
Only darkness to be found

End the silence with your divine breath
Let the blood...




7. IRISH RAIN

Let the rain kiss you
Wash away my pain
A minute to keep silence
Time to think and time to weep

Irish rain
It's the only thing I share with you tonight
Irish rain lullaby

Let the dark embrace you
Like a feather-bed
A moment to seek silence
Time to pray for inner peace

Let the moon enlighten you
Like a midnight star
Is there a heaven great enough
To spread my holy love for you




8. NORTHBOUND

I have come by the sea-way home
I'm returning to where I belong
I travelled through countries of foreign belief
I've tasted the wine of the youth
But I am...

Northbound
Each day I am without you
Is like day-light without sun
Each night I rest without you
Is a king without his crown
In her eyes burns a light that will guide my way
Northbound I can only rely on my will to go
North again

There's a silence that comforts my ears
There's a purity streaming out in the wind

I will be home

Northbound
Fortnight since I saw her
Wonders never appear half-heartedly
Fortnight since I touched her
I am home
I am home




9. RAGNAROK

Chariots are leaving
I see the leaves falling
Winter and coldness
Freezing the rain

Fimbulvetr
Savage winter
Wolves chasing the sun and the moon

Heimdall blow your horn
Ragnarok will end us all
The voice of chaos screaming
Through the halls of Åsgård
Gods awaiting the end of the world
The end of all

Life stops breathing
I watch the flowers wither
Tyr fighting in vain
Groaning with pain

Nidhug dragen
Gnawing at the roots of Yggdrasil

Heimdall blow your horn
Loki's army shatters all

Gods awaiting the end of the world
The end of all
Ragnarok
The throes of pain screaming
Through the plains of Vigrid
Gods awaiting the end of the world
The end of all

Downfall of the Gods
World serpent raises into the waves
Ragnarok will end us all
Evil call - crushes all
Last army rides

Wintres woma þonne won cymeð
Norðan onsendeð

Blackness strangles the daybreak
Winter shouting with thunder
Bloodshed - murders - ruins
Gods and goddesses plunder
The end of everyone and everything




10. MORGENLAND

La min sjel sveve med din vind
Sveve
Over havet i bølgesang
Seile

Morgenland
Morgenland

Vask meg ren i tåkens slør
Leve
La meg finne mitt morgenland
Leve

La mitt haap seve i ditt lys
Sveve
Gjennom daler av ordets klang
Synge




11. THE HOLY BOND

There's a holy bond between us no one can erase
Like silken thread it holds us fast
It's unbreakable

Because there's hope enough to drown my fears
There is faith enough to dry my tears
These memories I cling to
There's a holy bond between me and you
Between me and you

There's a magic bond between us no one can replace
When I call your name I sense you are here
In my horizon

Dypt i mitt indre har farenes makt – i mitt indre
Bitt seg till rette – en truende pakt

There's a magic bond between us which never can be torn
Like silken thread it holds us fast forever

Dypt i mitt indre – mitt indre – farenes makt




12. FØRYAS THEME

Frøya
Blue her eyes
Gold of hair
A maiden so fair

Her skin so pure
Splendid and slim
Goddess of love
Brightened and white
Goddess of love
Brightened and white

Eigandi valfalls
Home of the slain
Eigandi valfalls

Home of the slain
Valfrøya
Gave her heart to the Sun
To the Sun

Wandering eyes...of a man
Leaving her...beauty counts
A journey of...no return
To the ends...of the worlds

Tears running across her face
Turning oh so pale
Red tear-drops striking the earth
Like stones of gold

Lost in despair
I'm drowning in sorrow
She cast a shadow upon the earth
Showing no fear
Never ending fire
She will haunt across the worlds

Frøya
Sore her eyes
Of golden tears
A heart so torn

Aching to find...her Sun
Leaving her...tears behind
A journey of...the heart
To the ends...of the worlds

Tears running across her face
Turning bright like pearls
There she found him under a tree
They rose as one

Like the Phoenix
Out of the ashes
She cast a shadow upon the earth
Endlessly waiting
His Goddess appeared
They rose as one into her halls




13. LANDSCAPE OF THE DEAD [BONUS TRACK]

Darkness all around me,
The water seems so deep,
All is dead and icy,
Landscape of the dead.

Oh, are you to be called
The master of my mind,
I'm falling into timeless fears.
What is real?
I am flying through the spaceless void.

Darkness all around me,
The water seems so deep,
All is dead and icy,
Landscape of the dead.

Send me an angel,
I'm scared of the night,
Blackness surrounds me,
I hear you sigh.

Landscape of the dead
Bothering my head,
Just let my soul in peace,
I'm not going yet.

Darkness all around me,
The water seems so deep,
All is dead and icy,
Landscape of the dead.

Loneliness around me
Lurking like a beast,
I wish I had a dwelling
And someone next to me.

Darkness all around me,
The water seems so deep,
All is dead and icy,
Landscape of the dead.

Dressed like an enemy,
You scare me to death.
I sense you before me,
So heavy on my chest.

I'm looking for someone,
Searching for something
To touch and feel.
I'm hoping that someone
Could offer me something
To give me relief.

Darkness all around me,
The water seems so deep,
All is dead and icy,
Landscape of the dead.

Loneliness around me
Lurking like a beast,
I wish I had a dwelling
Someone next to me, next to me.
