Shores In Flames

This song is by Bathory and appears on the album Hammerheart (1990) and on the compilation album Jubileum Vol. II (1993).

Mother winter leaves our land and opens wide the seas
The lukewarm breeze does beckon me as it whispers through the trees
It says, "Set your sails and let me take your ship to foreign shores"
Take farewell of those near you and your land of the North"

The wild cold deep black ocean's waves invites my hungry heart
Cry not my love, I'll return only death can keep us apart

Oden in the sky up high
Let the ravens of yours fly
To guide us on our sail to foreign shores
Let your ravens fly

The wind blows through my hair and fills our sails with hope and pride
Caress these lines of oak, wind, do not throw us all aside
The wild, cold, deep black ocean's waves as wide as sky above
Carry us, oh, gods of seas, don't take us down below, oh

Now approach the shore at dawn
All is still the light of daybreak is yet to be born
Clad in morning dew asleep
The city's walls rise before us men from the seas

Carrying cold steel at our sides, no time to lose
At sun birth, we attack the city by surprise
Down the coastlines with the wind we reign
Men of the North we leave the shores in flames

Shores in flames, oh, shores in flames
Shores in flames, oh, shores in flames

Tor of thunder way up high
Swing your hammer that cracks the sky
Send the wind to fill our sails and take us home
Guide your sons, us, home

When the wind cries out my name and time has come for me to die
Then wrap me in my cape and lay my sword down at my side
Then place me on a ship of oak and let it drift with tide
Let the flames purify my soul on its way to hall up high

Up high
Up high
Up high
Up high
