Asgard
[Fontò]

Norsemen hearts belong to you
Ancient God of war
You have created a sacred world
In Asgard is your throne
Time has come to praise the God

Crazy beings were living here
In superstitious fear
Angry Gods would never cause
Pestilence or war
Time has come to praise
It has come, do it over and over again

Praise him for the upcoming war
You won't feel astray
He's got power in his hand
So cry aloud his name

Odin used to overlook
From the exalted throne
Gazed towards south and west
The goal of all the hopes
Time has come to praise
It has come, do it over and over again

Praise him for the upcoming war
You won't feel astray
He's got power in his hand
So cry aloud his name

Chorus:
Asgard protects the warriors
Asgard, shelter of gods

Evil grew among the Gods
Holy Asgard fault
Noone praise it started now
The twilight of the Gods
Time has come to praise
It has come, do it over and over again

Praise him for the upcoming war
You won't feel astray
He's got power in his hand
So cry aloud his name

Chorus:
Asgard protects the warriors...

Hagen The Cruel
[Fontò]

I can't wait another night in the gloom
The Queen is eager
To cut off my head

When the morning dawned
All of my friends were dying
She should know I'm still alive

There's no fear inside myself
New troops are coming here
The hall is set on fire

Blinded by the smoke I stay
In the burning hall
I slay my thirst by drinking blood

Chorus:
My name is Hagen the cruel
Heart of stone

Sick at the sight of the carnage
Was the poor king Etzel
Only God would know his grief

Secret orders gave the Queen
To kill the enemy
That strongly entrenched was

I can't wait another night in the gloom
I knew well
I was never to return

When the morning dawned
All of my friends were dying
She should know I'm still alive


Chorus:
My name is Hagen the cruel
Heart of stone

Tears By The Firelight
[S. Merchant - L. Tarot]

Tears by the firelight, he won't be home tonight
The Royal order reached him now to fight for the land
Eyes at the window-pane, staring through pouring rain
All the room is cold and grey, the fire burns bright

Every night there is no one beside
She's counting the hours, the memories burn
Day after day all her thoughts slip away
She waits for the one to return

Almost a year has gone, the battles are raging on
She has got no sign of life, no news at all
She wants to know his stand far in the foreign land
For King and Country he has left
The King's sleeping tight

Every night there is no one beside
She's counting the hours, the memories burn
Day after day, all her thoughts slips away
She waits for the one to return

Tears by the firelight, he won't be home tonight
Sparks of hope begin to glow, the end of the war
Church-bells proclaim the peace
They welcome the returnees
"The victory is ours!" but she thinks, "What's mine?"

Every night there is no one beside
She's counting the hours, the memories burn
Day after day all her thoughts slip away
She waits for the one to return


Tears by the light, the fire burns down
Words black as grave's ground, seals red as blood
By the light, life's found an end
The parchment is still in her hand
