a new song released by The National for the upcoming 2nd season soundtrack for the HBO show “Game of Thrones“, based on the Song of Ice and Fire series of books by George RR Martin. I’ve read books 1 through 4, but not book 5, and I haven’t watched any of the TV series yet. but I am a sucker for music by The National. enjoy.
for a little history of the song, see this wiki page.
And who are you, the proud lord said,
that I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
that’s all the truth I know.
In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
a lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp, my lord,
as long and sharp as yours.
And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
that lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o’er his hall,
with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o’er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.
