Amon Amarth - The Dragon's Flight Across The Waves Lyrics



Alone he stands in the doorway
His family still asleep
Gazing at the starlit horizon
And the moonsparkling sea
When dawn comes he must leave them
His home, his children and loved
For his destiny beyond those waves
Known only to the Norns

He's already dressed ready to leave
His four friends are waiting by the shore
Each with a dragon ship
And one hundred men prepared for war

He returns to his bed kissing
His sleeping wife goodbye
And as he leaves his youngest son
A tear rolls from his eye

They set sail with the first morning rays
Heading for glorious wars
And as the five ships steer out from the bay
Their hearts pound like never before

The wind is strong, the sun is warm
Their Dragons fly across the waves
No greenfaces are seen here onboard
Only a crowd of braves

Many nights pass
And days long as a year
They await the battle
They await without fear

On the morning of the fifth day
Before the sun arose
They hear bells chime and see pyres
Torched at a nearby coast

"LOWER THE SAIL, GRAB YOUR OARS,
NOW MEN IT'S TIME TO ACT!
ROW LIKE THE WIND TO THE SHORE,
ROW LIKE THE WIND TO ATTACK!"

    Alone he stands in the doorway
    His family's still asleep

    Gazing at the starlit horizon
    And the moonsparkling sea

    When dawn comes he must leave them
    His home, his children alone

    For his destiny beyond those waves
    Known only to the Nords

    He's already dressed ready to leave
    His four friends are waiting by the shore
    Each with a dragon ship
    And one hundred men prepared for a war

    He returns to his bed kissing
    His sleeping wife goodbye
    And as he leaves his youngest son
    A tear rolls from his eye

    They set sail with the first morning ray
    Heading for glorious war
    And as the five ships steer out from the bay
    Their heart pounds like never before
    The wind is strong, the sun is warm
    Their Dragons fly across the waves
    No greenfaces are seen here onboard
    Only a crowd of braves

    Many nights passes
    And days long as a year

    They await the battle
    They await without fear

    On the morning the fifth day
    Before the sun has arose
    They hear bells chime and see pyres
    Torch a nearby coast

    LOWER THE SAIL, GRAB YOUR OARS,
    NOW MEN IT'S TIME TO ACT!
    ROW LIKE THE WIND TO THE SHORE,
    ROW LIKE THE WIND TO ATTACK!
    ATTACK! ATTACK! ATTACK!
    ROW LIKE THE WIND TO ATTACK!
