la chanson de roland lyrics – wotan

silence everywhere
the time before the end
now i am alone
the blow of my h*rn
will not break the calm

the cry of the steel,
the sad wail of farewell
the black stone sparks tears
of anguish in the air
i struck ten times
but the blade i could not break

oh my sweet durendal
born in the deep of the sky
clear and white against the sun
please forgive me
i cannot leave you
in unworthy hands

a merciless ocean of hate
ready to overwhelm us
only a good death
remains for us,
remains for us

if no strength can’t destroy you
invincible sword
then i will lay on you
and finally hide you from enemy eyes

i strike and strike again
my dance of death in battle
i strike and strike again
sing for me when i’ll be dust
i strike and strike again
my dance of death in battle
i strike and strike again
this sword i cannot break

darkness begins to fall
and a veil of blood
obscures my sight
a last blow in my h*rn
the delivering of my soul

a gloomy moan
across the mountains
the sound of a glorious end

wings of archangel
merciful refuge
there i’ll find the rest i need
and in the songs of echo will remain
