Lyrics: Niclas Arn, Karl Eurén
Eurovision Song Contest 2018

Ships in the making
Bound for a distant shore
World for the taking

Man gone forever more
Boarding and setting sail
Yet victory won’t prevail

Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there
Be the first to turn around
Take the leap to land on higher ground

Call in, surrender
Still it won’t feel like defeat
Men laying down their swords
Each of their own accord

Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there
Be the first to turn around
Take the leap to land on higher ground

Raise the banner to the sky
Face the fear and hold your head up high
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Take the leap like you were bound for higher ground

Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there

Freeze the arrow in the air
Make your mark and leave it hanging there
Be the first to turn around
Take the leap to land on higher ground, yeah

Be the first to turn around
Take the leap and land on higher ground

    New Foundland – viking were first to land on higher ground…

  • Javier Leal says:

    I believe “you” in “Make you mark and leave it hanging there” should be “your”.
    Thanks!

  • Bev Anderson says:

    “Raise the battle to the sky” should read: “Raise the banner to the sky”

    The “you” that should be “your” has already been noted above.

    Best wishes when you get to Portugal! I will be watching from across the ocean. 😊

  • Bev Anderson says:

    More little corrections are needed:
    Line 3: “Man gone forever more” should read “Men gone forevermore.”

    Lines 11 & 12 reads:
    “Call in, surrender
    Still I won’t feel like defeat”

    The lines should read:
    “Call it surrender
    Still won’t feel like defeat”

    I’ve listened to this song with ear buds on maybe 20+ times in the last few hours. I really do like this song about ancient Vikings!
    😊

  • Bev Anderson says:

    Oops! One more correction:

    Line13 reads: “Man laying down their swords”

    It should read “Men laying down their swords”

    Mange Tak! 😊

    These are the right words:

    Ships in the making
    Bound for a distant shore
    World for the taking
    Men gone forever more

    Boarding and setting sail
    Yet victory won’t prevail

    Freeze the arrow in the air
    Make your mark and leave it hanging there
    Be the first to turn around
    Take the leap to land on higher ground

    Call it surrender
    Still it won’t feel like defeat
    Men laying down their swords
    Each of their own accord

    Freeze the arrow in the air
    Make your mark and leave it hanging there
    Be the first to turn around
    Take the leap to land on higher ground

    Raise the banner to the sky
    Face the fear and hold your head up high
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    Take the leap like you were bound for higher ground

    Freeze the arrow in the air
    Make your mark and leave it hanging there

    Freeze the arrow in the air
    Make your mark and leave it hanging there
    Be the first to turn around
    Take the leap to land on higher ground, yeah

    Be the first to turn around
    Take the leap and land on higher ground.
