Leaves' Eyes - Vinland Saga


Leave's Eyes / Vinland Saga
Napalm Records, 2005


En este álbum se cuenta la historia de la llegada de los vikingos a América y la de una pareja: en la embarcación de Leif Eriksson viajaba un germano llamado Tyrkir, que deja a su esposa en Noruega y le promete que regrasará en abril. Cada canción es una parte de esa historia.

My elegy

Teardrop on a fragile eyelash
She's looking like a dream
Hoping for some understanding
And answer or at least
Cunning word a single sentence
To restore her heart
Aching since the day I left her
Crossing lonely seas

Silent tears of a woman

Make a warrior cry
Heaven, I beg you
Please release hopes from fears

This is my elegy

Do you know what I feel?
This is my elegy
Do you believe it's real?
Will I hold you in my arms again?

Dewdrops on a single rosebud

This purity of rain
Reminds me of the moment I left her
Kisses filled with pain
And if I should leave her waiting
For another year
Will she ever know the answer?
Will she follow me?

Silent tears of a woman

Make her warrior cry
Heaven, I beg you
Please release hopes from fears

This is my elegy

Do you know what I feel?
This is my elegy
Do you believe it's real?
Will I hold you in my arms
Hold you in my arms again?

Cunning word, a single sentence

To restore her heart
Aching since the day I left her
Crossing lonely seas

Silent tears of a woman

Make a warrior cry
Heaven, I beg you
Please release hopes from fears

This is my elegy

Do you know what I feel?
This is my elegy
Do you believe it's real?
Will I hold you in my arms again?



New Found Land

Beyond the boundaries of the known world
Where are the mountains and where are the fjords?
Hundreds of miles off course, we are lost
Clear skies return as we witness the shore

We sail the sea

We fight the storm
One hundred men caught by endless passion
Adventure Norse Men
A hunting eye
One hundred men on a holy mission

My arms are tired and my feet are cold

Hoping for shelter I'm hungry for food
My eyes see fire, a gift from the gods
What will we find at the end of the world?

We sail the sea

We fight the storm
One hundred men caught by endless passion
Adventure Norse Men
A hunting eye
One hundred men on a holy mission

We have found new land

We set sail for Greenland

As we crossed the oceans
Awaiting the Mirdgard serpent
We finally found a new world

We sail the sea

We fight the storm
One hundred men caught by endless passion
Adventure Norse Men
A hunting eye
One hundred men on a holy mission

We have found new land

We see new found land



Vinland Saga 

1000 years ago a Viking ship
Left Norway in the spring

Tiden er kommet

Tiden vil vise
The saga of Vinland
A saga of Norsemen

The new world they found they called Vinland

The Land of Wine

Stormen forte skipet

Vestover mot ukjent land

Farewell proud men

Look above into the misty air

I hear the waves reminding me of fear
I'm not alone but I am still confused
Will you return and will your dreams come true?

Across the sea into shallow water

Long ships' sails and sweeping oars
To walk the shore of a new land
To serve the shores of golden sand
Across the sea into shallow water
Long ships' sails and sweeping oars
To walk the shore of a new land
To serve the shores of golden sand

Farewell proud men

Spirits will guide you
May they save you
Farewell proud men

Frightening ocean sacred as the wind

I beg you please be careful with these men
At night I dream of wonders and of change
Will I receive a message from you then?

Far way from our own home

Show me a future
Open the palace doow
And I will follow you
