So once again I cannot sleep,

And some urge brings me here,

Our long lost home, now hidden deep,

In sad need of repair.

If one would ask, I could not say,

What troubles me tonight,

My mind, it seems, will not make way,

Though I turn out the light.

So once again,I turn to you,

And hope to pass the time,

To share again, as I used to,

My tired, midnight rhyme.

Too long has passed since I last read,

Of Lannister and Stark,

Now boxed away, just like the dead,

Alone and in the dark.

I long to once more turn the page,

And fall into that tale,

Whose words I love more as they age,

That move me without fail.

Lions and wolves, a burning stag,

And more who played their part,

I wish to fly again their flag,

Through Martin’s written art.

Fools and kings on iron thrones,

With crowns upon their head,

And dragons making ash of bone,

Borne high, on wings of dread.

Maybe my dreams will bring me there,

More memories of home,

The smell, and feel, the very air,

Of each misshapen tome.

I often wish I could go back,

To how things were before,

Fly home again, my books unpack,

And start afresh once more.

With these words said I hope to find,

Though hope is oft in vain,

A chance to rest my weary mind,

And sleep away this pain.

Linger

From Ygritte to Jon Snow, based on “Linger” by the Cranberries


If you, if you could return, don’t let you burn, don’t let you fade.
I know you were being you, and it was your attitude,
Your tearing up my heart, confusing everything.

I swore, I swore I would be true, and Jon Snow, so did you.
So why did you stand up and fight? Was that the way to leave?
Did you love me all the time? Was it just a game to you?

But I’m in so deep. You know I’m such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

Oh, I thought the world of you.
I thought nothing could go wrong,
But I was wrong. I was wrong.
If you, if you could get by, trying not to leave,
Things wouldn’t be so confused and I wouldn’t feel so sad,
But you always really knew, I just wanna be with you.

But I’m in so deep. You know I’m such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

And I’m in so deep. You know I’m such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

You know I’m such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

Entre el fuego y el hielo
En el infierno o el cielo
Donde terminarán señores
Del trono los jugadores?


by Baitac

Raum und Zeit um uns steht still,
es liegt in meinen Händen,
der letzte Drache lädt zum Kampf,
hier und jetzt wird es enden.

Schwert und Hammer singen ein Lied,
das Lied von Eis und Feuer,
für einen Moment nur zögert er,
der Moment kostet ihn teuer.

Ein Wimpernschlag vergeht,
bleibt für die Ewigkeit,
ich finde mein Ziel mit aller Kraft,
und fühle mich befreit.

Als das Leben ihn verlässt,
schillern die Fluten rot,
doch was nützt mir dieser Sieg?
Ich bin hier und sie ist tot.

Translation of this one

O neznani deželi, na pol razdeljeni,
razdeljeni enako na Ogenj in Led,
o neznani davnini, v času izgubljeni,
pravi ta pesem, ki pojem jo spet.

Sedmera Kraljestva, združena v eno
pod Prestola železnimi meči.
Zahodnje je pokleknilo pred zmaji;
vse pametne starke in plašni dekliči.

A kaj se zgodi, kadar se zmaj
v mlado volkuljo zaljubi?
Jezni jelen vojsko zbere
proti temu, ki mu drago snubi.

Ob reki zmaj rubine zgubi
in v boju ne uteče pogubi.
Z zadnjo sapo izdihne
le ime te, ki jo ljubi.

Kaj se je zgodilo volčici?
Kako se bo zgodba končala?
Poznali bomo odgovor,
ko se spet srečata ogenj in led.


by Buckwheat

Existiu um dia uma terra
Em tempos que já lá vão
Em Gelo e Fogo dividida
Tal como diz a Canção…

Seven Kingdoms all united
By the swords of an Iron Throne
All Westeros bent to dragons
From shy maiden to wise chrone.

Ma cosa sucede quando il drago
Si innamora di una lupa?
I ribelli cervo arrabbiati
Sposta in avanti la sua truppa.

Près de la rivière du dragon a été tué
Et tandis que les rubis dégoulinant de son coeur
Avec son dernier souffle, il murmure
Le nom de son amour.

Wat is er met de wolf gebuerd?
Hoe werkt dit verhaal eindigen?
We zullen alleen zeker weten
Wanneer Ijs en Vuur staan klaar om weet te ontmoeten.

by Little Miss Sunshine 

Come, people, come and see!
Hear the Song of Ice and Fire!
Do not think that you can flee
From this world of lords and liars.

Up here in the far, far North
Young Bran sees an execution
A deserter is brought forth
Losing head’s the retribution

And the King is riding here!
They say that good Jon is dead
But the monarch has no fear
He know he has a friend in Ned

And from here the story starts!
It will make you laugh and cry!
It will cruelly break your heart!
You will love and fear and sigh!

Ned really becomes the Hand
Jon decides to take the black
Arya a butcher’s boy befriends
His body cut in half comes back

Catelyn leaves, Bran will live
Sansa’s in love with young Joff
In snarks and grumpkins don’t believe
Varys a war will set off

Dany marries an horselord
Catelyn kidnaps the Imp
Ned and Jaime, it comes to swords
… Littlefinger is a pimp?

Wait, Joff’s uncle is his dad!
And a pot of molten gold
Is poured on Viserys’s head
On the Wall it’s getting cold

And the King is dying now
Tyrion’s trial is a fight
Theon is good with his bow
But Robb says “You had no right”

Robert dead, Stannis heir
Petyr has betrayed Ned
Robb for his dad cares
Arya flees, is Syrio dead?

Lord Tywin, Walder Frey
Kevan, Tyrion’s mountain clans
Two big battles fought today
Drogo an invasion plans

Jon decides to keep his vow
Joffrey calls for Eddard’s head
Jaime is a captive now
I fear also Drogo is dead…

Renly king, Tyrion Hand
The Watch goes beyond the Wall
Arya and Gendry become friends
Crowning in the Tully’s hall

Do you think the book is done?
It’s the song of Ice and Fire!
These news everyone will stun
Dragons rise from a pyre!

Come, people, come and see!
Hear the Song of Ice and Fire!
Just surrender, bend the knee
Read it, it’s what your desire!
