The Isle of Fire and Ice - Taming of the Valkyrie

This song is by 7 Seals and appears on the album Moribund - Every Kingdom Has to Pass (2008).

Gunther
Sails are set, all men aboard
Waves are taking us away
Cold wind is calling us to the north
We're leaving shore

I have heard tales of a queen living there
Beautiful beyond compare
To conquer her heart and to make her my wife
I'll risk my life

Far beyond the sea
There lives an invincible queen
And we're here to compete
Wed die upon our defeat

To the isle of fire and ice
We're sailing away, oh will we ever return,
Ever see our home again?
Will we freeze or burn?

On the 12th morning land is in sight
Castles built upon the cliffs
Turrets and flags at incredible height
That's where she lives

So let us go, find the woman you crave
You shall win with Sifrit's aid
No turning back now, you must be brave
Or lose your head!

High above the sea
There lives the invincible queen
And by our deceit
We will force her into defeat

To the isle of fire and ice
We're sailing away, oh will we ever return,
Ever see our home again?
Will we freeze or burn?

"Long took the passage and great was the will of the ship's company to
Conquer the Valkyrie of the isle. Impressive she was indeed, and her
Words resounded in the fields of her realm."


Sifrit
My lord and king has come here to court you
I'm not nearly fit for you, your majesty

Brunhilt
Aren't you Sifrit? Have you come for me now?
Is it your plan to take me across the sea?

Gunther: Should she win we are in for trouble
Brunhilt: Now another victory
Sifrit: You and me, as the perfect double
Brunhilt: He won't be a match for me
Sifrit: Out of sight, I'll fight and defeat her
Brunhilt: I won't bother with such a whim
Gunther: By the power that is ours we'll beat her
Brunhilt: Oh, I'll smother him

Gunther: Oh, beautiful maid you'll soon be mine
Gladly I accept your challenge, full of pride
Brunhilt: Don't you underrate my skill
Gunther: As our stories intertwine
You will find your place in my realm, by my side
Brunhilt: I don't think I ever will

Gunther: Your majesty, I'll prove that I'm able
My skill and might are by far not on the wane
Brunhilt: Take off your arms, dine here at my table
Gather your strength for the competitions' strain

Gunther: Get your cloak of invisibility
Brunhilt: My tunic is just right for me
Gunther: She will never know that it wasn't me
Brunhilt: Silk and rich embroidery
Hagen: All she sees is her own reflection
Brunhilt: Never been touched by a weapon's blade
Hagen: She is so in love with herself
Brunhilt: No, my fame won't fade

"The rivalry begun and Sifrit became the shadow of Gunther.
Finally he prevailed, the Valkyrie was defeated. Loud were the cheers
Of victory and great was the joy."


Hagen: Brothers, now curb your elation
Brunhilt: I just can't believe my ears
Hagen: It's not time for a celebration
Brunhilt: I've succeeded all these years
Gunther: Let us pack, leave this island behind
Brunhilt: Men can be so invidious
Gunther: Ere she can change her mind
Brunhilt: Hideous, what he did

Gunther: Oh, beautiful maid, now you are mine
Gladly I accept your challenge, full of pride
Brunhilt: Don't you underrate my skill!
Gunther: As our stories intertwine
You will find your place in my realm, by my side
Brunhilt: I don't think I ever will
I won't just give up
