You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead,
And you're miles and miles from your nice warm bed
You just remember what your old pal said,
Boy, you've got a friend in me
Yeah, you've got a friend in me
Some other folks might be a little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
but none of them
will ever love you
the way I do
it's me and you, boy
And as the years go by,
Our friendship will never die
You're gonna see it's our destiny
You've got a friend in me

A thousand years before the Conquest, a promise was made, and oaths were sworn in the Wolf's Den before the old gods and the new.

The city is built upon the land they gave us. In return we swore that we should always be their men. Stark men!

That one thing is for sure:
You're the one I'm here for.
I will come running to you
Nothing I wouldn't do
I will never desert you, hurt you
I want you to know

Who's gonna help you when you can't keep it all together?
And who's gonna promise that they'll never leave you all alone?
I will, I will, I will, for you.
