My housemate plays a lot of Assassin’s Creed. The trailer for Revelations features the song Iron by Yoann Lemoine aka Woodkid.
Naturally, I made sheet music for the song.
This was a fun song to transcribe. It’s more of a reduction than an arrangement. To clarify: a reduction “reduces” all notes from the instruments in the original song into a smaller set of instruments, whereas an arrangement usually takes some creative liberties. This isn’t to say that reductions can’t be creative; they are simply more accurate to the original.
For this version, the piano is pure accompaniment and does not follow the male lead’s melody. If you can sing this let me know!
Iron sheet music
Deep in the ocean, dead and cast away
Where innocence is burned, in flames
A million mile from home, I’m walking ahead
I’m frozen to the bones, I am…
A soldier on my own, I don’t know the way
I’m riding up the heights of shame
I’m waiting for the call, the hand on the chest
I’m ready for the fight, and fate
The sound of iron shots is stuck in my head,
The thunder of the tribes dictates
The rhythm of the falls, the number of dead’s
The rising of the hoards, ahead
From the dawn of time to the end of days
I’ll have to run, away
I want to feel the pain and the bitter taste
Of the blood on my lips, again
This steady burst of snow is burning my hands,
I’m frozen to the bones, I am
A million mile from home, I’m walking away
I can’t remind your eyes, your face
