A cool wind blew in from the north
A cold chill lingered on our skin
In that winter that was the end
Of a war no one could win.

The cool wind took our brothers strong
The cold chill took our sisters fair
Our friends forgotten by the world
Their lives unwritten everywhere.

Sing, sing of fallen friends
We once loved so long ago
Sing, sing of all the names
Even we no longer know.

Now the years have come and passed
And our victory still lives on
But of the ones who gave their lives
The names and faces all have gone.

Now the years will roll on by
Until the war itself is lost
A legend of a bygone age
And nobody will know the cost

Sing, sing of fallen friends
We once loved so long ago
Sing, sing of all the names
Even we no longer know.
