Oh, misty eye of the mountain below

Keep careful watch of my brothers’ souls

And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke

Keep watching over Durin’s son


If this is to end in fire

Then we should all burn together

Watch the flames climb high into the night

Calling out father, stand by and we will

Watch the flames burn auburn on

The mountain side


And if we should die tonight

Then we should all die together

Raise a glass of wine for the last time

Calling out father

Prepare as we will

Watch the flames burn auburn over

The mountain side

Desolation comes upon the sky


Now I see fire

Inside the mountain

I see fire

Burning the trees

And I see fire

Hollowing souls

I see fire

Blood in the breeze

And I hope that you remember me


Oh, should my people fall in

Surely I’ll do the same

Confined in mountain halls

We got too close to the flame

Calling out father

Hold fast and we will

Watch the flames burn auburn on

The mountain side


Desolation comes upon the sky


Now I see fire
Inside the mountain
I see fire
Burning the trees
And I see fire
Hollowing souls
And I see fire
Blood in the breeze
And I hope that you remember me


And if the night is burning

I will cover my eyes

For if the dark returns then

My brothers will die

And as the sky is falling down

It crashed into this lonely town

And with that shadow upon the ground

I hear my people screaming out


Now I see fire

Inside the mountain

I see fire

Burning the trees

And I see fire

Hollowing souls

And I see fire

Blood in the breeze


I see fire

You know I saw a city burning

And I see fire

Feel the heat upon my skin

And I see fire


And I see fire burn auburn on the mountain side

  1. Thank you for sharing! It is one of my favorite songs. I sung it to myself while reading the lyrics. Huge fan of Ed’s work and can’t wait for his new album 🙂
