lyrics

Your heart’s too full for talking
The muses found me sulking in my cell
They wish you well, they wish you well, they wish you well

Wives of wind can’t win at all these days
Every other hour levels praise
Upon the verses underserved
To impress me, you’d better impress her

Were the world all mine
From the ocean to the Rhine
I’d give it all, I’d give it all
I’d give it all for the Queen of Sweden

The Huns set fire to the library as the left
You cursed their gods under your breath
Sit in your room
Your room will teach your everything

You held your sword like a dancer
You held your sword like a dancer
You held your sword like a dancer
And you fought like the girl I loved

Were the world all mine
From the ocean to the Rhine
I’d give it all, I’d give it all
I’d give it all, I’d give it all
I’d give it all for the Queen of Sweden
