Beetlebug – An Ode to L’manburg Lyrics

An Ode to L’manburg Lyrics By Beetlebug

It all started on a day like any other
All the salmon had swum to the sea
When my lover she darted, away down the stream
With a heart that she’d taken from me

And my chest though it ached, there was hope
A little beacon of light
Though my sunniest days were now stolen away
I still had our son by my side
And as he looked up at me, with those wondering eyes
I just knew that I must protect him with my life
And make a land that is good
And a land that is free
For the better of you and of me

We’ll build these walls, with our own fair hands
Through the wind and the rain and the snow
And I swear on my life, that I’ll stay by your side
Through whatever the world has to throw

So I summoned my men to my side
And we sung a familiar tune
As a final goodbye, with our fists to the sky
To our past as we started anew

We built these walls, with our own fair hands
Through the wind and the rain and the snow
And we swore that we’d keep an unwavering faith
To the land that we carved for a home

Oh, the dawn of the day set our country aflame
As the sun rose bloody and true
Arrows burned through the skies, as we swallowed our pride
And we ran with our backs to the moon

To our demise…
From a friend full of lies…

Oh, the break of the day shed it’s light
On our hearts left battered and bruised
All the hopes that we’d laid, on the home that we made
Torn to pieces and left in the blue…

But my friend with an angry cry
Held the weight of our world at his side
Took a trembling stand, with an arrow in hand
As he muttered a final goodbye…
