01. Vinland Saga

1000 years ago a Viking ship
Left Norway in the spring

Tiden er kommet
Tiden vil vise
The saga of Vinland
A safa of Norsemen

The new world they found they called Vinland
The Land of Wine

Stormen forte skipet
Vestover mot ukjent land


02. Farewell Proud Men

Look above into the misty air
I hear the waves reminding me of fear
I'm not alone but still I am 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 shores 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?

Across the sea into shallow water long ships' sails and sweeping oars
To walk the shores 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

Far way from our own home
Show me a future
Open the palace door
And I will follow you

Farewell proud men
Spirits will guide you
May they save you
Farewell proud men

Farewell proud men
Spirits will guide you
May they save you
Farewell proud men


03. 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


04. Solemn Sea

Seil den sterke sjo
Solen har gatt end
I det vide havet
I det morke dypet
Hviler en drom
Om et ukjent land

The music of your heartbeat brightens me

Turn my fears into hope
Oceans of blue

Darkening sky the shadows fall
Foaming waves shatter us
I cry aloud to the sky
Solemn sea save me

Solemn sea save me

Watch and wait for the next
Attacking waves, ice cold rain
The black mirror of the sea
Watching me, save me

The humming of the waves frightens me

Turn my fears into hope
Oceans of blue

A thunder storm roars at me
My body shakes in the rain
Lightening rays spearing me
A thousand spears haunting me


05. Leaves' Eyes

Summer goes, winter comes
Leaves fall on frozen grounds
True love lasts forever
I imagine you in a thousand glimpses
Moonlight you keep me safe at night
And I know you're here if I'd fall

Seasons change
Spirits wake up
Birds fly away to far-away homes
True love lasts forever
I imagine you in a thousand glimpses

Moonlight you keep me safe at night
And I know you're here if I'd fall
Starlight show me the way in the dark
And I know you're here when I call

Leaves' Eyes
Leaves' Eyes

Children grow up
Parents grow old
Man's wives become mothers to sons
Sunna hides, mani glows
Stars are watching over us

Moonlight you keep me safe at night
And I know you're here if I'd fall
Starlight show me the way in the dark
And I know you're here when I call


06. The Thorn

I hope that he will be safe
Hopefully return in April
I've heard the winds speak of a fight
And it hit my heart like a thorn

Whispering voices appear
I can't escape what I feel
All I can see
All I believe
Is connected to our kindred souls

I feel the thorn in my flesh
The pounding of blood in my/your head
I/you cry aloud
I/you cry of anger
My/your enemy will never forget me/you

I heard you calling my name
I saw your colourless face
Fire in your eyes
Where do you go to?
I dreamt of an enemy threatening you

I feel the thorn in my flesh
The pounding of blood in my/your head
I/you cry aloud
I/you cry of anger
My/your enemy will never forget me/you

I feel the thorn in my flesh
The pounding of blood in my/your head
I/you cry aloud
I/you cry of anger
My/your enemy will never forget me/you

Hold me
Breathe with me
Until the end of time

I feel the thorn in my flesh
The pounding of blood in my/your head
I/you cry aloud
I/you cry of anger
My/your enemy will never forget me/you

I feel the thorn in my flesh
The pounding of blood in my/your head
I/you cry aloud
I/you cry of anger
My/your enemy will never forget me/you


07. Misseri (Turn Green Meadows into Grey)

Morning awakes
Night is drifting away
Winter's approaching
Time to go or stay
I see migrants travelling
To a far-away world
Reflected in black waters and you

Turn green meadows into grey
Can you feel the winter waiting?
Ice-cold rivers turn to blue
Can you see the jewel shining?

Fire burning in my eyes
It warms my hands when I'm alone
There's no one here to hold me tight
Rain patters against my window
Or is he knocking at the door?
Memories are growing stronger and you

Golden leaves under my shoes
Gathering birds in the sky
May I go with them
Let me fly to you
Let me fly to you
And be safe


09. New Found Land

You, fall, love

Beyond the boundaries of the known world
Where are the mountains and where are the fjords
Hundreds of miles off the 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
Adenture Norse Men
A hunting eye
One hundred men on a holy mission

My arms are tired and my feet are cold
Hoping for shelter and 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 Midgard 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
I see new found land


10. Mourning Tree

So far away, but still so close
So many days I've had to count
The meaning of life comes true when I'm with you
For in me there's a flower growing

Tell him through the winds I am here
Whisper through the breeze not to fear
Taste it by the rain what I feel when you hold me
Reach out for the winds that we share
Then you will feel I am near
Taste it by the snow, I am here where you left me
I told to the mourning tree

The long way home is never too far
Unless you've reached the end of life
My deepest wish comes true when I'm with you
For in me there's a miracle growing

Tell him through the winds I am here
Whisper through the breeze not to fear
Taste it by the rain what I feel when you hold me
Reach out for the winds that we share
Then you will feel I am near
Taste it by the snow, I am here where you left me
I told to the mourning tree

Tell him through the winds I am here
Whisper through the breeze not to fear
Taste it by the rain what I feel when you hold me
Reach out for the winds that we share
Then you will feel I am near
Taste it by the snow, I am here where you left me
I told to the mourning tree


11. Twilight Sun

Spring is calling, time to leave
The winds have told me she's waiting for me

Hear the tune
Of northern winds

Twilight sun
Will soon be gone
Guide me twilight sun I will follow you home

Earth is awakening
The grass is green
The rivers sing
She's calling for me

Shivering leaves
Songs of home

Twilight sun
Will soon be gone
Guide me twilight sun I will follow you home

Twilight sun
Will soon be gone
Guide me twilight sun I will follow you home

For you I will return

If you don't return, I will leave a message for you carved in stone

Twilight sun
Will soon be gone
Guide me twilight sun I will follow you home
I will follow you home

Twilight sun
Will soon be gone
Guide me twilight sun I will follow you home
I will follow you home


12. Ankomst

I glitrende solskin
Et landskap som våkner
Vi seiler inn mot havnen

Hjem til deg i dine armer
En historie å fortelle

Ankomst ankomst gi meg havn
Ankomst ankomst åpne din favn

La dine sorger hvile i havet
Et sted mellom nord og sør
Vinden synger de evige toner
En sage å fortelle
