VERSE:
Dreams are seldom shattered by a bullet in the dark
Rulers come and rulers go, will our kingdom fall apart?
Who shall we now turn to when our leaders lost their heart?
Lives are lost, but at what cost? Will the grand dream fall apart?
PRE-CHORUS:
Killed by his own or by his foes
Turned the tide
300 years still no one knows
The secret remains
CHORUS:
Broken dreams so grand
Sing of his final stand, long live Carolus
Brought by soldier's hand
Back to the fatherland, long live Carolus Rex
VERSE:
Brought him back to Sweden, where we put him in a chest
Years of war and agony, now the king can finally rest
What will be uncovered from that cold November night?
Frederiksten, what happened there? Will it ever come to light?
PRE-CHORUS:
Killed by his own or by his foes
Turned the tide
300 years still no one knows
The secret remains
CHORUS:
Broken dreams so grand
Sing of his final stand, long live Carolus
Brought by soldier's hand
Back to the fatherland, long live Carolus Rex
BRIDGE:
For their honor, for their glory, for the men who fought and bled
A soldier from Sweden remembers the dead
CHORUS:
Broken dreams so grand
Sing of his final stand, long live Carolus
Brought by soldier's hand
Back to the fatherland, long live Carolus Rex
CHORUS:
Broken dreams so grand
Sing of his final stand, long live Carolus
Brought by soldier's hand
Back to the fatherland, long live Carolus Rex
