We had a very rough winter that year,
The village was covered with snow,
I still remember the hard work of all men
Trying to clear the roads,
And although frozen through,
we filled the tavern with laughter and joy
At the end of the day

Drink some wine and forget your troubles
Drink more wine and leave all your tears
Cause we are here together and we will
Sing the songs of sweet memories
Laughing at the worries we carry
In the arms of maidens we marry
There's no grief inside our hearts
But pride of what we give our sons
This world of ours, the land we tilled
And all the faith our fathers built
We tell them all the tales of our people
The truth we know: your heart is your temple
Sail along the waves of the ocean
Let the north wind set you in motion
Taste the freedom, seize the day
Don't let it go, live it your way

So they sung, the brave ones
Simple man, but still, they were heroes to us
The passion they have put into everydays life
And their togetherness.. it led them out even from the darkest days
Some of us still remember, there is always hope for the better
As for me, it still brings peace to my heart
As the cold wind whispers the echoes of their songs in this wintry night
