lyrics

WINTER

I’ll be home, be home again
I’ll be home, be home again
after long the cruel winter’s hold
through the years I fought in vain


Oh, raw amber sky
stock-still riverside
far hills shine like fool’s gold
When the nights are long
and the wall stand strong
under moonlight stories told

winter, come!
winter, come!
over ashes washed away
watch men croak!
watch men croak!
silver mantle turns to grey

I’ll be home, be home again
I’ll be home, be home again
after long the cruel winter’s hold
through the years I fought in vain

In the mountain’s wake
silent highlands quake
when the daylight hits the stone
waves of nations collide
from the war’s rising tide
in their haste to reach the throne

they have come!
they have come!
let our valor make them stray
Spare them none!
Spare them none!
lead them all to disarray

I’ll be home, be home again
I’ll be home, be home again
after long the cruel winter’s hold
through the years I fought in vain

after all, the fates overrun
and I shall be none of the slain
for the storm soon will be passing on
on and into better days

(And) I’ll be home, be home again
I’ll be home, be home again
after long the cruel winter’s hold
through the years I fought in vain
