Track Name: Bastard Blood
Bastard Blood
Dwight Evan Young

This isn’t the first girl to tempt me wearing red…
Can I be bound by an oath that I’ve broken?
I know the truth, I know a man can’t be brave till he’s afraid
And I’d die for the watch.

[Chorus]
I’d rather be a Ghost than a Wight,
And I know the night is dark
And full of terrors.
I know that I belong in the fight,
I’m worth less than common born,
I just have bastard blood.

Your warnings do not fall on ears so deaf,
I’ve seen the coldness to the north,
Ancient and dark,
Winter is coming.

Wildling, or high-born south of the wall;
I’m trying to save them all
But they act like I know nothing.

Kill the boy and let the man be born.

[Chorus]

I am the sword in the darkness.
I am the watcher on the walls.
I am the shield that guards the realms of men.
I am the guard who opened the gates
And let the foe march through

[Final Chorus]
I’d rather be a Ghost than a Wight,
And I know you said the night is dark
And full of terrors.
I know that I belong in the fight,
I’m worth less than common born,
I just have bastard blood.
I know that I’m the son of a wolf
But my anger can burn like dragon’s fire.
I know that I belong to the Snow,
But sometimes I feel like
I don’t have bastard blood.
