I'm just a man but I know that I'm damned
All the dead seem to know where I am
A tale that began on the night of my birth
Will be done in a turn of the earth
I'll lie where I land, let my bones turn to sand
I was born on the lake and I don't wanna leave it
Every eye on the coast evermore
Will remember the sight of the ghost on the shore

Under the waves and the earth of an age
Lie a thousand old northerners graves
Deep in the night, when the moon's glowing bright
They come rising up into the light
I'll die if I must, let my bones turn to dust
I'm the lord of the lake and I don't wanna leave it
All who sail off the coast evermore
Will remember the tale of the ghost on the shore

I'm going away for a long time
I'm going away for a long time

I'll lie where I land, let my bones turn to sand
I was born on the lake and I don't wanna leave it
Every eye on the coast evermore
Will remember the sight of the ghost on the shore
I'll die if I must, let my bones turn to dust
I'm the lord of the lake and I don't wanna leave it
All who sail off the coast evermore
Will remember the tale of the ghost on the shore
