lyrics

This road is familiar
It worries me...
For all the faces I've seen in my deepest dreams lead me down the path
Still I follow on.

Nothing can stop it...
There is no respite from the endless trail
Down and to the North we go
Up ahead of me the gates loom

Down the underground trail
That only unfortunate and evil men have seen
The old and sick all around
Helheim is near

When I am gone
Remember me...
Of my smiles and laughter
Not my evil deeds
Shed no tears for me...
I am free of this world
Walking down the path
Helveien

Walking along a path blind
This valley is so deep
I cannot see anything...

The giantess Modgud
Guarding Gjallarbru
A frightening sight...

Have I wasted my life?
Have I wasted my love?
Can you give me another chance?

I have wasted life...
I have wasted love...
I don't deserve another chance...

The gates of Helheim loom
At the end of the underground trail
That only unfortunate and evil men have seen

When I am gone
Remember me...
Of my smiles and laughter
Not my evil deeds

When I am gone
Remember me...
Of my smiles and laughter
Not my evil deeds
Shed no tears for me...
I am free of this world
Walking down the path
