about

This is my first ever solo release. Each song was written about individual love stories within my favourite TV show 'Game of Thrones'. All characters or quotes mentioned belong to that franchise.

I really hope you enjoy what you hear.

Track Name: Eternally
You are my stars
and i don't want to do what they ask
where did you come from?
i can only hope that this will never end

when you lay there you're so beautiful
all my dreams of being king
they fade away into the dirt
lay with me eternally

and i'm a wolf
that's what they say
i'm supposed to not feel love
be stronger than my enemies
but i'd rather die holding your hand
kissing your lips
than by the sword of another man
let's live in this light

when you lay there you're so beautiful
all my dreams of being king
they fade away into the dirt
lay with me eternally
lay with me eternally
lay with me eternally
Track Name: My Queen
you're cleansing my the river
you're so beautiful my love
i am just a soldier
i'll never have your touch

you're something of a dream
they'll never put their hands on you and me
you're something of a dream
and you, you'll always be my queen
my queen

i never believed in luck
but now i do
because being this way has brought me to you
and i will learn these words
if i have to
to find a way to tell you i love you

you're cleansing by the river
you're so beautiful my love
but i am just a soldier
i'll never have your touch
you're something of a dream
they'll never put their hands on you and me
you're something of a dream
and you, you'll always be my queen
my queen

you're cleansing by the river
you're so beautiful my love
Track Name: You Know Nothing
oh you make me feel wild
seem's as though i'm breaking my vow's
but we're still breathing in the cold
beyond the wall my intention's were cruel
but after all, i'm just a crow who's wing's were never meant to fly
to you

i never thought i could feel this way
love can be such a wicked game
and if i could i would forget it all
we could run away
seven kingdoms couldn't keep me apart from you
i'd kill the dead if that's what i have to do
but in that cave
in that cave is where we should have stayed

i never meant to betray you baby
can't explain the love you gave me
i'm not a bleeding poet
i'm a watcher of the wall

but i still love you
you're so far away
i still love
and i still love you
you're so far
even when you shot me at my heart

i never thought i could feel this way
love can be such a wicked game
and if i could i would forget it all
we could run away
seven kingdoms couldn't keep me apart from you
i'd kill the dead if that's what i have to do
but in that cave
in that cave is where we should have stayed
in that cave is where we should have stayed
in that cave is where we should have stayed

you know nothing after all
