lyrics

We sit in the godswood beneath the heart tree
Just me and my direwolf my direwolf and me
Some milk of the poppy would help ease the pain
It’s not a brief tale but I’ll try to explain

Go take the black said the king in the north
Join the night’s watch and prepare to set forth
A raven will carry a message to you
Dark wings bring dark words you’ll know what to do

At the edge of the world is a wall made of ice
And if you are wise you will take my advice
Run for your life flee the sight of the wall
For winter is coming to bury us all

Blue eyes and black hands live on after death
Beasts in the forest will stop all your breath

You’ll need a good horse and you’ll need a good sword
Your friends are all rapists and bastards and whores
Try to remember a couple of things
You owe your allegiance to cripples and kings

At the edge of the world is a wall made of ice
And if you are wise you will take my advice
Run for your life flee the sight of the wall
For winter is coming to bury us all

My mother said I should not have been born
Will I be redeemed by the oath I have sworn
Or will I betray all that I hold most dear
Will it even matter when winter is here

At the edge of the world is a wall made of ice
And if you are wise you will take my advice
Run for your life flee the sight of the wall
For winter is coming to bury us all
