Thomas Lovell: Battle of Hastings

I see the fog that surrounds me
I feel the cold wind that pierces me
I feel death breath above us

On the horizon the normans are standing
Through my friends the tensio is ascending
I await signs from the sky

Now I see the messengers talking
Now they're back to their lines for fighting
Horns of war now they growl

Everything comes, everything goes
I see my friends lay down all around
Loudest sounds are becoming silence
I spent my life to live this day at last
Everything comes, everything goes, but
What kind of money can give back a life?

Men and horses now meet steel and fire
Now my friends had left here their desires
Blood, fire, steel around me

I die here for the order of the royals
Dead for a land where I'm not the owner
I fall down without life

I had seen the fog that surrounded me
I had felt the cold wind that pierced me
Now I'm rising through the sky

Peace now it's done...
