“GORY HAZE” SUNG BY LORD EDDARD STARK


LORD EDDARD STARK
My good friend Robert was a fighter gone fat
Back at Winterfell.
He could wield a war hammer well;
Made me look like a green boy.
Kept from him secrets of the Tower of Joy.
I was thinking what he now was all about.
Wants me to be his “Hand!  “No!” I wanted to shout.
All he kept begging about was

Gory Haze, now his life’s a lie.
Bloody Phase, the years might pass him by.
Gory Days, Bloody Maze!

Bob had many girls he took to his bed.
He said “Ned, don’t worry; I need not wed.”
So he makes love. Robert grunts and sighs.
I try not to judge my pal, but in
My Stark eyes
He is creating a den of lies
And good-byes.
I guess some men like “them” good times.
I think the old gods will make him pay for his crimes.
When he thinks of Lyanna dying,
He chokes and then starts crying.

Gory Haze, now his life’s a lie.
Bloody Phase, the years might pass him by.
Gory Days, Bloody Maze!

Bob defined himself by the battle line.
Now he seems so blind.
I hate to tell him that he’s too old.
The king may toss me into the cold.
Once we soared as wards of Jon Arryn at the Vale.
But our true love, well, on that boat did sail!
I wish he was old Bob, but he’s gone and he can’t stand tall.
He drinks alone in his cold, dark hall.

Glory Haze, now his life’s a lie.
Bloody Phase, the years might pass him by.
Gory Days, Bloody Maze!

Now I do not want to start a fight of might.
If he wants to drink all day, his right, his fate.
And I hope I never get fat and drunk because
Our hour is late.
Our fears we must not fake.
So mind my word. I don’t know what to say?
Get it together before time slips away.
Bob never changed his ways,
And I’m tired of the old stories of glory daze.

Glory Haze, now his life’s a lie.
Bloody Phase, the years might pass him by.
Gory Days, Bloody Maze!

Glory Haze, now his life’s a lie.
Bloody Phase, the years might pass him by.
Gory Days, Bloody Maze!

“IN MY LIFE” and “HEART FULL OF LOVE”

NOW SUNG BY LYANNA STARK AND PRINCE RHAEGAR TARYGARYAN AND NED STARK in lieu of COSSETTE AND MARIUS AND VALJEAN

LYANNA STARK
I am changed
All these feelings come on so fast
It’s strange,
What’s the matter with me, Lyanna?
Your brothers left you too much alone.
So many things unknown.
I’m too much on my own.

He’s my love.
And I have questions unanswered
That somehow are wrong

He’s my love.
The sigh of his faraway song
And he sings
Of dragons I long to see
Not in reach
Yet a breath away
Waiting for me.

Is he really alive?
To touch him is real
Does he see what I saw?
Does he feel what I feel?

With my love
I’m no longer alone
With a dragon in my life.
He’s so near
Rhaegar, find me know!  Find me here!

NED STARK
Dear Lya,
You’re such a lovely girl.
With a strong wolfish will.
You seem so sad to me.
Lyanna, if I had the power
I’d fill each and every hour
But you are the wolf, I see.
Stuck with only me for company.

LYANNA STARK
Very little do I know
Of certain things I long to know.
Of the woman I am
Not the child long ago.
Ned, you have nothing to say
But my love you have known
Why keep the secret to yourself?
Why make me stay alone?
So dark, so dark and deep
All the secrets the Starks keep.
In my time
You give me all I want
You are kind and tender and good.
But dear Ned, dear Ned
To you I am just a child
Like a wolf running wild.

NED STARK
No more talk of love
No more talk.  Let this love be dead.
There are things
You never heard.
They are better unsaid.

LYANNA STARK
But brother dear!
I’m not a child!  You hear?
I demand the truth you know
Of the time not long ago.

NED STARK
You will learn.
The truth comes in time.
Given by the old gods
In their own turn.

(Ned leaves the godswood and Lyanna is alone;  spying through the wolfwood, Rhaegar Targaryan arrives.)

PRINCE RHAEGAR TARYGARYAN
For my love,
She sounds  like the music I sing.
She lights the sun.
And my heart does stop.
Our love cannot be over
Before it’s scarcely begun.
Lyanna,
The gods in your wood have brought me here.
Will she meet me here?
She is so near
That I fly like a Dragon in a world that is free.

LYANNA STARK (Unaware Rhaegar is eavesdropping)
Every word Ned said is a dagger in me.
For my love
No one like my dragon, anywhere
Anywhere, where he is.
If he asked – I’d be his.
In my life
Rhaegar touches my life.
I’m waiting here.
I hope he’s near.

[Rhaegar sneaks into the Winterfell godswood to meet Lyanna Stark, who sits under the heart tree reading a book)

RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
My heart’s full of love
My heart’s full of song
My words
All sound
Wrong
I want to know your name?
I’m so filled with shame.
Dear Lady Stark?
Won’t you say?
Make my day?

LYANNA STARK
My heart’s full of love.
No fears, no tears.

RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
I’m Prince Rhaegar Targaryen

LYANNA STARK
I am Lyanna, or Lya

RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
Lya, I don’t know how to say -

LYANNA STARK
No!  There is no way …

RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
Make no sound

LYANNA STARK
I am lost.

RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
Now you’re found!

LYANNA STARK
A heart full of light.

RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
A bright night to light our way
And you must never go away
Dear Lya, Lya.

LYANNA STARK
Ours is a vow
We’ll never break.

RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
I have a dream …

LYANNA STARK
We’re both awake!

RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
My heart’s full of love
You are now mine to lose.

LYANNA STARK
My heart’s full of you.
Why dream of what cannot be?

RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
Just one look and I knew

LYANNA STARK
For me too.
I saw you jousting too.

RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
From today, you and me

LYANNA STARK
Everyday,  you and me.

BOTH LYANNA STARK  and RHAEGAR TARGARYAN
This isn’t a dream
Our hearts full of love.
We will find a way.
After all, we feel this way:
Our hearts full of love.

“NED’S DEATH SCENE”

FEATURING LYANNA, SANSA, JON SNOW, ROBERT, RHAEGAR AND THEIR FALLEN  COMRADES

NED STARK
Alone, I wait in darkness.
I count the hours.
Till I can sleep.
In my dream
Lyanna’s standing by.
I made her weep
To know I die.
Alone, to the old gods I pray
That on this my last day
Please keep my children safe
In your embrace
In their case.
Gods on high,
Hear my prayer.
I am ready
For your care.
I do dare.
I am there.
Let me see.
Where I’ll be
For eternity –a tree.
Take me home.
I want my home.

LYANNA
My dear Ned, I bless your name.

NED STARK
I’m ready, Lya.

LYANNA
Brother, rest, all the same.

NED STARK
This is my last of days

LYANNA
You raised my Jon with love.

NED STARK
He’s a man of the Watch

LYANNA
The old gods will take you.

SANSA
Father, what can I do?
Father, I love you.
They said you’d gone away!

NED STARK
Sansa, my dear.
Thank the gods you’re here.
What a good day.

JON SNOW
Father, please forgive me.
I wanted you to see
That I am living
Because of all your giving.
Dear Father, you are too good.
Shall I carry you out to the godswood?
I have been at the Wall
An ice cliff so tall
But I came home to you.

NED STARK
Now you are here.
Sit beside me.
So I can die in peace.
I have been blessed.
Let me rest.

JON SNOW
You will live!  Father, you will live.
I refuse to say good-bye.

NED STARK
Jon, do not forbid me now to die.
I ask Why?
I can try.
To the tree
I send my last confession.
I will see
When I am finally sleeping.
My short story
Of your mother’s love for you.
Lya gave her life for you.
Then she gave you to my keeping.

LYANNA
Come with me.
Nightmares will never find you.
All your regrets
At last, Will be behind you.
And to the old gods
I pray for mercy.

NED STARK
Forgive all my sins.
Take me to my glory.

NED STARK, LYANNA, RHAEGAR, AND ROBERT
Take our hand.
We’ll lead you to the night land.
Take our hearts,
In which you are a part.
And remember
Our times at Winter-Fell
We did dwell
In a heaven
Not a hell.

CHORUS OF ALL WHO DIED IN ROBERT’S REBELLION AND ON THE WALL
Do you hear the North lords sing?
Heading to the valley of the night.
It is the singing in the trees
Leading us into the light.
On earth did we meet our end.
Into the roots we’ll wend.
The soul never lies.
The dark night will end.
And we will rise.
We have laid down the sword
In order to seek out
The old gods and their reward.

Will you march in our parade?
Will you join hands with me?
Our lives have been made
So in death we soon shall see.
Do you hear the Children sing?
Their shields a distant drum.
It is our death they mean to bring,
When salvation comes.

Will you come and join on up?
Will you drink from my cup?
Raise your glass; drink with me.
A new world we soon will see.
Do you hear the Children sing?
Their shields a distant drum.
It is our death they mean to bring,
When salvation comes.

“NED’S CONFESSION”

NED STARK as Jean Valjean
And JON SNOW as Marius

NED STARK

Be quiet and listen my son.
I have a task that must be done.
I speak from my heart.
You must know your name.

I have a story to tell
Of love and shame
That you alone must know.
I never said before,
You once dreamed of dragon lore.
Now you need the truth.
A story you must know
Of fifteen years ago.

There lived a Prince TAR – GAR- Y –ON.
He is the man who had the son.
But shortened was his time.
His early death a crime.
Years ago
He stole my sister’s heart.
I could not keep them apart.
The Starks I feared she might disgrace.
Until I looked into her face.
I could not order Rhaegar gone.
So the Tower of Joy they moved on.

JON

Who am I?

NED STARK

You are Jon
TAR – GAR- Y –ON

JON

I’m a dragon?
What did I do?
Are you still
My father too?
I don’t want this to be!
I cannot believe…

NED STARK


I do not deceive
I have kept my secret
Listen to what I say
Your parents’ hearts were full.
This is the best way.
“Promise me!”
Did she say
On her last day.

JON

Father, now I know.
For your sake, it is so.

(Everything I Do) I Do it for You

Look into my eyes, you will see
what you mean to me.
Search your heart, search your soul
and when you find me there
you’ll search no more.

Don’t tell me, it’s not worth tryin’ for.
You can’t tell me, it’s not worth dyin’ for.
You know it’s true.
Everything I do, I do it for you.

Look into your heart, you will find
there’s nothin’ there to hide.
Take me as I am, take my life,
I would give it all, I would sacrifice.

Don’t tell me it’s not worth fightin’ for.
I can’t help it, there’s nothin’ I want more.
You know it’s true.
Everything I do, I do it for you, oh yeah.

There’s no love, like your love
and no other could give more love.
There’s nowhere, unless you’re there
all the time, all the way yeah.

Look into your heart baby.
Oh yeah.

Oh, you can’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for.
I can’t help it, there’s nothin’ I want more.

Yeah I would fight for you.
I’d lie for you.
Walk the wire for you.
Yeah I’d die for you.

You know it’s true.
Everything I do, ohh, I do it for you


for Ned and Cat

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

(scream) Sansa!

(Ned prays a song of the Children of the Forest, in a language long forgotten but remembered in the trees, in the truths buried in Winterfell.)

[ Ned sings]

Eleka nahmen nahmen
Ah tum ah tum eleka nahmen
Eleka nahmen nahmen
Ah tum ah tum eleka nahmen

Let her blood not be spilled,
Let it not fall like rain!
When they beat her,
Let her not be killed.
Let her bones never speak

No matter how they try
To destroy the Starks
Never let them die!
Never, ever let them die!

Eleka nahmen nahmen
Ah tum ah tum eleka nahmen
Eleka nahmen nahmen
Ah tum ah tum eleka: eleka:

What good is this magic?
I don’t even know the Tongue I am speaking!
I am imprisoned with no tricks to try!

Sansa?  Where are you?
Are you already dead and bleeding?
My daughter is one more casualty
For me to add to my generous supply:

No good deed goes unpunished
No act of honor goes unresented
No good deed goes unpunished


These are my new family words!

All my good intentions
are like Words in the Wind!
No good deed
Goes unpunished!

Robert.
Lyanna.
Jon Aryn..
Sansa -
My sweet Sansa!

All these bad dreams
Haunt me and it hurts
Too very much too ever mention.
Was I really seeking HONOR?
Or just admiration and attention?
If these were my motives –
When I look with my grey eye -
If this is all my honor is –
If my purposes are selfish - then
Maybe that’s the reason why!

No good deed goes unpunished
All helpful urges should be prevented.
No good deed goes unpunished

(Speaks) This is ill done -
So be it.
Let all the Seven Kingdoms be agreed
I’m a traitor through and through –
If I cannot succeed,
Sansa, in saving you,
I  do promise,  
( song) “Winter is Coming” –

No good deed
Will I attempt to do again!
Ever again!
No acts of honor
Will I do again!
Never Ever Again!

I don’t even like wine, but I couldn’t not buy this.

I don’t even like wine, but I couldn’t not buy this.

This surprises me every time, no matter how many times I watch this damn show and read the books. Season 1 was epic compared to season 2. That is all.
But Ned looks almost pleasantly surprised.

This surprises me every time, no matter how many times I watch this damn show and read the books. Season 1 was epic compared to season 2. That is all.

But Ned looks almost pleasantly surprised.

Random! A Ned there was, a Ned, a Ned!

A Ned there was,
A Ned, a NED!
All stern and proud,
And married to Cat!

“Oh come” he said,
“Oh come to be Hand!”
“The Hand?” said he,
“But I’m the Ned!
All stern and proud,
And married to Cat!”

And down the road,
where path them led.
It led! It led!
Two wolves, two girls
And a grumbling Ned!
They rode and walked,
So he could be Hand!

Oh! sweet she was,
And promised to wed,
The maid of North,
Daughter of Ned! Of Ned!
The maid of North,
Daughter of Ned!

With Prince she walked
and to her he said:
“I’m bad! I’m bad!”
All gold and proud,
He made butcher bled!
“I’m bad! I’m bad!”
He made the butcher bled!

Ned sniffed and asked,
And smelled it, Ned!
Cersei, to the King was wed!
“Oh I’m no bad,”
She lied, she said
“I always loved

Man I didn’t wed!”
Not wed! Not wed!
“I’ll never love
Man in my marriage bed!”

The Ned, the Ned
“You must run away”
to her he said.
The Ned, the Ned!

She called for the guards:
“I will have your head!”
The head! The head!
All stern and proud,
“I will have your head!”

Not kicked, not wailed,
The Northern Ned.
When Payne with Ice cut
His head!
He bled! He bled!
When Payne with Ice cut
His head!

Not sighed, not squealed,
When he took his head!
Joff cried: “You see, I’m bad!”
And off it went,
The Ned! The Ned!
And his honour with his head!

Ned Stark’s song for his beloved Lyanna


There’s a rose
Underneath your statue
That I placed fifteen years ago
Dried up petals and a faded bouquet
And a secret in my memories

There’s no reasons, no excuses
Only years in which to agonize
Just a hard truth like an old song
And a son you wouldn’t recognize

In the meantime, I’ll be waiting
For fifteen years and fifteen more
I’ll be praying for redemption
And your secret, in my memories

And your secret, in my memories.

Discussions on parentage…

Cat’s so mad it’s ludicrous
Jon’s a Targy it’s obvious
Cat’s children are all of Ned’s kids
You would think a Mistress in politics
Wouldn’t be so damn oblivious
