"Eagleheart" as written by and Timo Tapio Tolkki....
All through the night he is lying awake
Wond'ring how much more can he take
Watching the walls where the shadows dance
Drifting away into a trance
And his eyes are blazing with fire

Dreams burnt to ashes so many times
Highest of mountains, still he climbs
Ready to fly, cause he just can't stay
Flame burning brighter with every day
And his eyes are blazing with fire
Longing for the deepest desire

Heart of an eagle
He flies through the rainbow
Into a new world and finds the sun
Spreading his wings
Above all the sorrows
The glory of Eagleheart

Fever is burning in his veins
Determined with courage, breaking the chains
Back against the wall under blood red skies
Prepared to fight until he dies
And his eyes are blazing with fire
Longing for the deepest desire

Heart of an eagle
He flies through the rainbow
Into a new world and finds the sun
Spreading his wings
Above all the sorrows
The glory of Eagleheart

Heart of an eagle
He flies through the rainbow
Into a new world and finds the sun
Spreading his wings
Above all the sorrows
The glory of Eagleheart

    General CommentIt's power metal, lyrics can be a bit cheesy, get over it.

    This songs melody is fantastic and has an inspirational message to it. Like most power metal it's about overcoming a challenge and finding oneself, without talking about dragons and elves. Either way, it's a great song and I love to listen to it when I'm running and on that last mile.

    General CommentOH shit this song is SO AWFUL AND CHEESY IT HURTS.
    And the music video is the LORD OF CHEESE.

    Seriously, Strato can du much better than this.

    "And his eyes are blazing with fire
    Longinng for the deepest desire"
    I cannot think of a more cliched metal verse;
    seriously.

    General CommentIt is very cheesy. And the video, for me, sucks. T_T

    I like the melody of the song a lot, I could stand the lyrics, but the video just ruins it. Oh well. It does sound quite epic-like though. But still cheesy. o_O

    General CommentI think the chorus may be referring to the guy finally falling asleep and entering a dream-state.

    Also, there is nothing wrong with "cheesy" metal like this; sometimes a message like this, told through the medium of metal, is needed. Besides, if metal isn't about facing down a challenge and winning, then what is it about?
