about

Anselm's love song to his beloved maid, as he leaves the town to serve a famous lord in the office of squire.

lyrics

Fair maid, long is your hair, black like the night
Will it wait for me?
Fair maid, deep are your eyes, bright like the sun
Will they cry when I leave?

My Queen, soft is your voice, sweet like the breeze
Will it sing for me?
My Queen, white is your skin, pure like the silk
Will you love me when I return?

Honour: righteous, noble, lover!

I would fight, would die
Wait for my return
I will fight, victorious
I will come back for you

Honoured I will be
Knighted and proud
I will come back
I will return for my…

My Queen, soft is your voice, sweet like the breeze
Will it sing for me?
My Queen, white is your skin, pure like the silk
Will you love me when I return?

I will show all my love
All my life is for you
I will rise again to destroy your enemy
Lend you my hand, thus lend you my power

I sense that dark clouds will cover the sky
I feel the sadness, I can see the grieving
But would it be love if it were easy to build?
Doomed is the castle that’s built on the sand

Take my hands one last time for short is the life
And we got to make the most of it
Love if the fountain of life without love we can’t live
Without love we are doomed to die

Today we say farewell one day I will return
Give you my honour and give you my love
Then our souls shall be entangled forever
We shall be like one, the fair knight and my…

My Queen, soft is your voice, sweet like the breeze
Will it sing for me?
My Queen, white is your skin, pure like the silk
Will you love me when I return?

Trust me my Queen
Don’t cry my angel
Long is the path
But we shall reach the end

Long is my way
I will fight for you
I will survive for my love
I will return for my Queen

Unripe is our love
Let it grow strong
Give it time to lay down its roots
It shall turn into the strongest bonds
No living man can set loose

My Queen, soft is your voice, sweet like the breeze
Will it sing for me?
My Queen, white is your skin, pure like the silk
Will you love me when I return?

Love me when I return
Wait for me, for me
My Queen
Love me when I return
Wait for me for me

Wait for me…
