Ensiferum - Burning Leaves Lyrics




Passing aeons
Everlasting fight against the Evil
Their army grows on and on
With the darkening horizon

I'm not afraid, let them come
I will never retreat
I will stand and hold my ground
Protect the ancient tree
The defense is doomed to fall
With the world I used to know

Burning leaves
Turn to ash before my eyes,
Crushed my dreams long gone.

Burning leaves
Dead branches reach to the sky,
The flame within me is gone.

On the light of the last dying star
Serpents crawl closer
All five branches, cursed from the start
And roots are torn to pieces
Right before my dying breath
I lay my eyes to the sky
As an eagle spreads its wings for the last time
Leaving me, the oak, the grove, to die

Burning leaves
Turn to ash before my eyes,
Crushed my dreams long gone.

Burning leaves
Dead branches reach to the sky,
The flame within me is gone.

Liekö enää päällä maan
Ainuttakaan joka muistaa
Lehdon tuon kauniin kaukaisen
Jonne tie vie jokainen
Kun kuolemaan vartija viimeinen
Keskellä liekkien ikuinen
Puu ja maailma ihmisten
Niin loppuu aikamme
[English translation:]
I wonder if any longer someone walks the earth who recalls
That fair grove afar, where all paths meet
As the last of the guardians falls, ablaze the
Eternal tree and domain of man
Thus ends our time

    I feel like slaying a dragon right now

  19. andrew marlowe

    My current favorite ensiferum song, they really hit something deep on this song and whole album too

  20. Rangel

    Passing eons
    Everlasting fight against the Evil
    Their army grows on and on
    With the darkening horizon

    I'm not afraid, let them come
    I will never retreat
    I will stand and hold my ground
    Protect the Ancient Tree

    The Defence is doomed to fall
    With the world I used to know

    Burning leaves
    Turn to ash before my eyes
    Crushed my dreams
    Long gone
    Burning leaves
    Dead branches reach to the sky
    The flame within me
    Is gone!

    On the light of the last dying srae
    Serpents crawl closer
    All five branches, cursed from the start
    And roots are torn to pieces

    Right before my dying breath
    I lay my eyes to the sky
    As an eagle spreads its wings for the last time
    Leaving me, the oak, the grove, to die!

    Burning leaves
    Turn to ash before my eyes
    Crushed my dreams
    Long gone
    Burning leaves
    Dead branches reach to the sky
    The flame within me
    Is gone!

    Liekö enää päällä maan ainuttakaan joka muistaa
    Lehdon tuon kauniin kaukaisen
    Jonne vie tie jokainen
    Kun kuolee Vartija viimeinen, keskellä liekkien
    Ikuinen puu ja maailma ihmisten
    Niin loppuu aikamme

  21. Edward

    I am burning some leaves now to this.

  22. Pablo Sandoval

    Desde que Jari dejó la banda creo que esta es la mejor canción de Ensiferum

  23. Adler Gomes

    Very good!

  24. Jesús A. Herrera S.

    It has the 'old' Ensiferum's taste on.. I love it!♥

  25. Wilmer Lozano

    Muy buena canción

  26. tony mingo

    one of my favorite ensiferum songs

  27. PasserMontanus

    Easily one of Ensiferum's best songs. Too bad it had to be on the otherwise terrible album that was Unsung Heroes.

  28. Gerard Atlas

    I found this song on soundcloud while looking for a half decent cover of Inis Mona by Eluveitie that I could listen to while tabbed out on my phone. Folk metal has now gone from that one genre that I kinda like to my new favorite.

  29. WELTSCHMERZ

    "The defense is doomed to fall"; anybody else finds this song very sad? xd

  30. Veilleurs des ombres

    The best folk metal band ever

    gruzva grazvu

    And Moonsorrow, Finntroll, Primordial... ? This is shit ?

    Veilleurs des ombres

    no, they're good too !

    Nathan Vincent

    Uhh Turisas and Tyr?

    Cynewulf Meddugnatos Agenarich Turms

    I like Primordial too. But they're a different style. At the end of the day I probably prefer Ensiferum, but that's just me.

    Jonathan Hart

    Moonsorrows and Falkenbach are better, but Ensiferums is good to. Also Emporium and October Falls although they are a different kind of folk more on the melancholic side then the epic.

  31. Joe Scotton

    Battle for Hyjal ♥

  32. BrownBond Tunes

    Fucking amazing

  33. Uhtred

    So powerful

  34. TheOverlordMOO

    "I wonder if any more
    on this earth
    lives any one who remembers
    that grove so beautiful and distant
    to which goes every road.
    When dies the guardian last.
    Admist the flames eternal
    the tree and the world of man,
    so ends our time."
    (the word "eternal" can be interpreted to refer to the tree and/or the guardian)

    Uhtred

    TheOverlordMOO The tree of Life.

  35. Aracelli

    My fav, very emotional chorus then bammm scream again <3

    ninn lppuu aikamme

    This gives me chills! I gotta learn finnish ASAP!!!

    Brandan Lee

    I could listen to this part of the song on repeat for days.

    Jordan

    Perhaps no longer on the earth
    Not one to remember
    Grove on that beautiful distant
    Where the road takes every
    When the last guard killed
    In the middle of the eternal flame
    Wood and the world of people
    So ends our time

    Bluyth

    If you live in the UK, look up the Suomi Koulut; they're a charity-based group of Fins who live in the UK that do monthly language lessons.

    Kai 202840

    Jordan No, not "wood".
    An Eternal tree and the world of human kind all in flames... or something like that...

    Polina Racheeva

    @Öykü Özer Think of the coughing cat meme, that should work :D

  39. Raul Fernandez

    Just beautiful. Lyrics, music and how they project you to that world when playing live.

  41. Helder Ladeira

    well dont have much words to describe they are just amazing in all forms love it

  42. Thane Krios

    And people say Ensiferum lost it's charm after Jari left. Not true at all.

    G.H. D.N.

    Jari was good on the first two Ensifurm, and first Wintersun. The guy is an entitled piece of shit, though. I think by now everyone knows the story about Time II. :(

    J T

    The masterpiece from Ensiferum is their first album

    Jonathan Hart

    I think Victory Songs and From Afar (albums that didn't have Jari on) are Ensiferums best albums this album isn't as good as Ensiferums older stuff but it does have some good songs like this one.

    Aesthetic Virtuoso

    Not even slightly true

    Aesthetic Virtuoso

    This is just as good

  43. leki vujcic

    song too epic, killed a dragon on my way to work

    TV4ME

    You Sir, made my day.
    May your times be blessed.

    BFKC

    Now let's think what could in reality represent a dragon in hallucination/delusion... Because that song is rather unimpressive.

    NieDzisiejszy

    Let the gods bless you sir.

  44. The Airsoft Bible

    this song makes me feel like a viking

    Grovesy

    +Trashmaster JB So sick

    The Airsoft Bible

    Takes one to know one fuckboy.

    Erik Rumpel

    Except for the fact that Ensiferum´s music is based on Kalevala, which is like completely different mythology :(

    Shivaya Kali

    fatty big belly with long beard full of lice and many wrinkles in eyes from 21 years old cause too much blonde they ageing faster, cold feelings with 1cm penis woooooow ,,,i like this :)......but sorry i prefer to be AMERICAN forever

  45. Rui Coelho

    A true master piece :D

  46. Sanket Joshi

    what a chorus!!

    Dave Broad

    Sanket Joshi so good! Has me hooked

    SavatageIsMyReligion

    it reminds me of Pasi from Amorphis! Wonderful chorus, indeed!!

  47. brnleague99

    Woke up with an OVERWHELMING urge to listen to these guys.

    Öykü Özer

    thats my everyday routine

    Sam

    That tends to happen to me too, lol.

  48. Zuben
