​Unforeseen Alliance - United Against the Danes

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

Gunther
There are thirteen foreign knights here at my court
Clad in robes of gold
They look like they are up to fight
What a curious sight

Kriemhilt
Never have I seen a man so fair
The sun shines on his hair
Oh noble stranger, notice me
What does he want, who could he be?

Hagen
He who slew the dragon, he who fought against the beast
He who owns the treasure, he who fought against the beast

Kriemhilt: At our court
Sifrit: Arms at hand, prepared to fight I stand
I will rule your land
Gunther: What have I done to spur your wrath?
Don't take my breath
Hagen: He'd be a useful ally, I'd dare say
So why not invite him to stay?
Brothers, you shall live in peace
Should he fight your enemies?

Kriemhilt
I leave my window as the moon ascends
Watched countless tournaments
The nobleman that I adore
I took a fancy from afar

Sifrit
I've demonstrated all my skills at length
My armor and my strength
Yet she stays out of my view
What's going wrong, what could I do?

I who slew the dragon, I who fought against the beast
I who owns the treasure am now forced down on my knees

"A year passed and day by day Sifrit was aware of this noble maid he
Did love with all his heart. But sadly he had to stand, he never beheld
Her, she was still a stranger to him"


Gunther
Their messengers have been sent from afar
The Danes declare us war
What a peril we are in

Sifrit: With your soldiers we will win
Kriemhilt: He has never feared and never failed
Never surrendered, never ailed
He is cunning and is brave
And with his help we shall be safe

He who slew the dragon, he who fought against the beast
He who owns the treasure will now fight our enemies

Kriemhilt: At our court
Sifrit: Arms at hand, prepared to fight I stand
Your army at my command
No foe shall set foot past the Rine
To harm the love of mine
What I cherish, I defend
You are in safe hands
Brothers, we fight side by side
Kriemhilt: Into the battle we stride
