The War to End All Wars

"Lady of the Dark"

 

Milunka Savic was a Serbian woman who took her brother's place in the army.

Partly disguised as a man, she would eventually be among the most decorated soldiers of WW1.

Music:  Joakim Brodén

Lyrics:  Pär Sundström

 

Who shall be remembered

In the ancient House of war?

All the medals, all those stories

In the Alley of the greats

Celebrated hero, who has wandered through the dark

She stand before you, all that metal shining bright

 

Lost in time, returning to the light

Bow before, this lady fight for life

So sister

 

(Chorus)

Raise your hand

For the lady of the dark

Soldier with no will to kill, with a philanthropic heart

Forever

Break the norm

She’s the girl in uniform

Fighting side by side with men, she will fight until the end

 

Lied to be respected

And to change her brothers fate

Took a bullet, earned her freedom

And a place among the stars

Served the Iron squadron, served the toughest of them all

No fear of dying, for the frontline she was born

 

Sacrifice, she took her brothers place

War to war, a place where she belong

So brother

 

(Chorus)

 

Don’t fear the reaper

Don’t fear the war

She spared the life of brothers

 

She’ll fight for honour

She’ll fight for life

A lady goes to war

 

(Chorus)
