The time has come to lead the charge And I don't want to pray. Our dreams that once were full of life Now lie here in the fray. It's all for king and country, yes. I know just who I am. My heart lies in the valley, My soul rides with the damned. [Chorus] How will they remember me? Ellie can you tell? The one who swore the traitors' oath, The poet mad as Hell. And will they fly the Hero's Flag? Or know just where I fall? Ellie, don't you wonder what's this about at all? And all I want is to feel your breath So warm against my skin Your lips so close That I can't breathe Or take this madness in. Ellie, when I close my eyes, You're in my every night. Knowing that I love you Somehow makes it worth the fight. [Chorus] And little did they know that day I cried the mourner's tears You held me in your ghostly arms And took away my fears Ellie, can you hear in now The blackbird's last refrain. Hush, I think it's calling us Back to the hills of Slane. [Chorus]
