Watch “Ásgeir – Was There Nothing?” on YouTube

Was there nothing but the hush of night?
Had a boat, don’t remember where
Do you flee from what was said and seen?
Truth’s not true under the light of lies
Raise your sword and shield

Was there more than just the prose of night?
Had a grave, don’t remember where
Beaten down, now I lift up my prayer
Broken promises have set the snare
Both sincere and not

Was there nothing but the blessed night?
Had some gold, don’t remember where
When does faith lift up its head so high?
Oh my Lord, won’t you please tell me why?
Faith bestows power

Was there nothing but the hush of night?
Had a treasure, but I don’t know where
Did you flee from what was said and seen?
Yes, the good was not without the bad
Raise your sword and shield
Yes, the good was not without the bad
Raise up your sword and shield
