Solar glare from Lord Frej,
the Shining One,
in Ljusalfheim he's King of elves.

High above the rainbow
and in the tarn deep in the wood
you'll find elves.

Follow their light
it's brighter than sun
it makes you fly...

In the realm of Alfheim
you never know what you have seen.
A pale mirage?

Beauty make you sunblind
it fills your mind
you fly away and lose your hug.

Fly with their wings
they make you feel so free
but you may fall...

Flee from their light
they'll maybe drag you down
or make you fly...

    General CommentRandom information: Thomas Karlsson, founder of Dragon Rouge, offers his voice in this song when he whispers. (The part after "it makes you fly"... It sounds as if he's saying "forever, in the sky".) Ljusalfheim is another world of Norse mythology, where the elves live (as can be seen from the lyrics).

    General CommentAlfheim means Elf home. Ljus seems to be Swedish for 'bright' or 'light'.

    General CommentActually, Ljus in this case is Old Norse (which is the language Swedish and the other Norse languages are derived from).
    "Ljusalfheim" translates as "Bright Elves' Home/Realm" or, a more loose and poetic translation "Land of the Light-Elves".
    Absolutely beautiful song, the music does a very nice job of sounding like Frej and the Elves :)

    General CommentText from booklet:

    "The shining ones, the elves and the fairies, are beings of enchanting beauty. They act as a thought or a fantasy and it could be easy for you to be lead astray by their splendid light. You may be lifted on their wings to the highest of skies, but beware ... in the next moment they may let you fall."
