"Glory To The Brave" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/dronjak Stroemblad....
Snow is falling down on this glorious land
Colors fading, turning into white again
To fallen heroes angels sting, they cry their winter tears
Endless mourning days will turn to years

So this is goodbye, I take leave of you and
Spread your wings and you will fly away now, fly away now

Nothing on earth stays forever
But none of your deeds were in vain
Deep in our hearts you will live again
You're gone to the home of the brave

Every solemn moment I will treasure inside
Even though it's hard to understand
That a silent wind can blow that candle out
Taking everything leaving the pain far behind

You call out my name, but your voice is fading
Into the wind, embraced, you'll fly away now, fly away now

Nothing on earth stays forever
But none of your deeds were in vain
Deep in our hearts you will live again
You're gone to the home of the brave

My eyes are closed I feel you're faraway (so close)
Far beyond that shining star
I know you'll find what you've been fighting for
Far beyond that shining star

Down on bended knee I pray, bring courage to these souls
Make 'em live forever in the heart of the bold
So I say farewell my friends, I hope we'll meet again
When my time has come to fall from the grace

So this is goodbye, I take leave of you and
Spread your wings and you will fly away now, fly away now

Nothing on earth stays forever
But none of your deeds were in vain
Deep in our hearts you will live again
You're gone to the home of the brave

    General CommentThe ultimate lament this song is incredibly powerful with the great musical abilities of Hammerfall, if I was to have a song at my funeral this would be it. The chorus is inspriring

    General CommentGreat artist, great song, the video is cheesy but otherwise cool, I think that the band look like a bunch of freaks. Cool music though....

    General CommentOne of the members of the band wrote this song for his Grandfather's funeral. I would also like this played at my funeral.

    General CommentI agree With ZareliMan.... This was the first song I heard from HammerFall after my sister died. It was very moving, and it still has an impact on me... This song can be played 10 million times, and it won't get old.

    General CommentAmazing song. The circumstances around which it was written don't really surprise me. I put this song on after I got the news one of my friends committed suicide recently. it's a time that really got me thinking about it all, as I'd never lost someone I knew the same age as me before. It is kind of sad, but manages to sound fairly uplifting at the same time. Not sure what my family would think of it, but I would like this to be played in some form at my funeral.

    General CommentThis is such a great song and as said before, I would have this song played at my funeral if given the choice. This song just never gets old and I play this song when something bad has happened in my life and also just to hear a great song. I also think that the video goes great with it. I high recommend this song to someone looking for a great metal ballad.
