Where it's cold outside
and the sun don't shine
and the moon don't rise
and the clouds swallow up the skies.

Where the nighttime reigns
as the daylight wanes
and the stars don't glow
'neath the veil of the falling snow.

We are home again!
We are the Northmen!

Where the summertime flees
from the winters freeze,
where the wild wolves roam
is the land that we call our own.

Where the ravens fly,
Odin's watchful eye
and the deer run free
to the shores of the frozen sea.

We are home again!
We are the Northmen!
Tamers of the seas
we strike our foes down to their knees!

When the skies grow clear
in the crisp night air,
to behold such sights!
What magics bring the Northern Lights?

When the crops grow tall
before the leaves must fall,
thank the Gods once more
that the harvest fills the winter store.

We are home again!
We are the Northmen!
See the battle scars,
riches and fame from the lands afar.

When the feast begins
and the court Bard sings
and the fire burns bright,
we'll make merry long into the night.

When we tell our tale
fill your horns with ale
and the mead flows free,
Deeds of valour will forever be

We'll make sail again!
We are the Northmen!
Tamers of the seas,
we'll strike our foemen to their knees!

We'll make sail again!
We are the Northmen!
The storm of Thor will come
from the land of the midnight sun.
A song I wrote a few days ago about my ancestors! I'm not a great writer but I was trying to capture the homeland and the spirit of the Vikings. There is a tune to this, I have written mandolin and electric guitar parts, so it's kind of a folk viking metal thing going on there! Hope you like :)
