Once I had a vision and a light
Something worth my aspiration and a fight
And there was a time when all this only seemed
Like some sky-aspiring vision I had dreamed

Faded grey are all the days of yesteryears
So much time has turned to memories and to tears
Lately I have often sat and thought till dawn
Of the days that are to come those foregone

Seemed my time had passed me by
Like clouds across the sky
I was lost just like a raven in the night
Most dreams waste away alas
Mine all have come to pass
Since I laid my eyes upon my guiding light

Valkyrja
Valkyrja

Late is now the hour of the day
And I've long ago run out of words to say
Deep within I had the will to find a way
Others fled to fight again some other day

I've heard said that all is fair in love and war
That a golden key can open any door
And remember if you feel all is gone
That the darkest hour comes just before the dawn

Seemed my time had passed me by
Like clouds across the sky
I was lost just like a raven in the night
Most dreams waste away alas
Mine all have come to pass
Since I laid my eyes upon my guiding light

Valkyrja
Valkyrja

Seemed my time had passed me by
Like clouds across the sky
I was lost just like a raven in the night
Most dreams waste away alas
Mine all have come to pass
Since I laid my eyes upon my guiding light

Valkyrja
Valkyrja
Valkyrja

    General CommentThis is about Valkyries. Valkyrja is the ancient Norse translation of the Maidens of the Slain gathering the glorious dead, The Einherjar.

    General CommentThis song seems to be about an aging warrior blessed by seeing a Valkyrie while still alive, who has never died or failed since. In the context of the album as a whole, it dits into the main narrative.
