Lyrics

Blood for Blood

Had I seen the melting snow?
I saw and trembled
For this a power I did not know
Though I was bound with chains

She was cruel but beautiful
And I was greedy
And like a slave I then was sold
By the way she said my name

Father, save me!
I the traitor
I who knew and ran from Love
I can hear the
Condemnation
In the rhythm of the drums

Though I knew all hope was lost
And this what I deserved
I had been conquered by the frost
But on my skin it burned

Cause she had power over me
At her touch I turned to stone
But in her eyes I saw a fear
A deeper magic her own

Chorus

And when I looked him in the eyes
I felt the weight of all my sin
For I knew what the law required
A death for death, a traitor’s end

But when I thought I feel his wrath
Despaired and filled with shame
He bent down to search my eyes
With such love whispered my name

Father, save me!
I the traitor
I who knew and ran from Love
Father, can you
Hear the Lion
It is written
Blood for blood
