EARENDIL & ELWING

Music by G.Castelli/L.Catalano/M.Catalano
Lyrics by W.Collo

PART I: TUOR’S SONG (THE LAND OF WILLOWS)

BEYOND THE BITTERNESS AND FIGHTING
BEYOND THE OPPRESSION AND THE CHAIN
OF ALL THE HOURS OF SAD WEEPING

THE COURSE OF LIFE BEGINS AGAIN
AND LIKE THE WILLOWS BY THE RIVER
YOUR DEADENED LIVES WILL BE RESTORED
MYSTERIOUS HANDS WILL LEAD YOU THITHER
TO CURE THE WOUNDS OF FIRE AND SWORD

BUT NOT FOR ME THE LISTLESS QUIET
OF LONG-DRAWN CALM ON THE HITHER SHORES
MY EYES WILL GAZE AT THE HORIZON,
THE THRESHOLD OF UNOPENED DOORS
FOR ALL THE CHILDREN OF FAIR ARDA
SALVATION WILL COME FROM THE SEA
THE THOUGHT OF WHAT LIES IN THE DISTANCE
LIKE MAGIC WORDS WILL CAPTURE ME

AND FOR YOU, SON, A PATH SHALL OPEN
A CALL SHALL URGE YOU TO SET SAIL
AND BE THE TIRELESS STRONG-WILLED SEEKER
OF WHAT IS HIDDEN BY THE VEIL
FOR MEN AND ELVES, A MESSAGE-BEARER
FOR EARTH AND SKY A SIGN OF LIGHT
AND IN THIS LAND CLOUDED BY TERROR
THE DAY OF CHANGE SHALL BE IN SIGHT

PART II: THE MOUTHS OF SIRION

AND YET THE SENSELESS AIM WAS NOT ACHIEVED
FOR ELWING CAST HERSELF INTO THE SEA
UPON HER BREAST THE STAR-LIKE JEWEL SHONE,
BY OTHER HANDS FOR OTHER ENDS RETRIEVED

PART III: ELWING’S FLIGHT

HEAVING WITH THE TALL BREAKERS
IN THE WOMB OF THE SEA
WHERE NOTHING COULD REACH ME
ALMOST CEASING TO BE
LOW, DEEP UNDERSEA CURRENTS
CARRYING A CORPSE AWAY

BUT THE LIGHT SPREAD INSIDE ME
LIFTING BODY AND SOUL,
STRONGER THAN MY SURRENDER
INTO MY BEING IT STOLE
AND I COULD NOT RESIST THE LIGHT
AND THE SEA PLAYED ITS LYRE,
A NEW CREATION’S CRY
FLYING HIGHER AND HIGHER

PART IV: EÄRENDIL & ELWING

EÄRENDIL
“I LEFT THE HITHER LANDS TO SAIL AND WANDER
FOR MY UNQUIET WOULD NOT LET ME REST”

ELWING
“WHEN I REMAINED ALONE THE WORLD WAS BLINDED
AS, GAZING AT THE SEA, I SAT AND WEPT”

EÄRENDIL
“STILL LOST IN NEVER-ENDING EXPLORATION
I WAS AWAKENED BY VOICES IN DREAMS”

ELWING
“AND NOW THE NIGHT HAS FALLEN,
BUT THE GUIDANCE
OF HAPPY STARS ABOVE
WILL LIGHT MY WAY”

PART V: THE LOVER OF THE SEA

LIFT UP YOUR EYES,
O YOU THAT TREMBLE
YOU, PRISONERS
OF DISBELIEF
THE LONGED-FOR MESSENGER
OF FREEDOM
WILL COME TO ANNOUNCE
THE END OF GRIEF

THE DIAMOND
OF SUNRISE AND SUNSET
THE HOPE OF THOSE
THAT ARE OPPRESSED
UNLOOKED FOR
AND UNKNOWN APPEARING
BY THE TWO KINDREDS
SHALL BE BLEST

PART VI: THE WESTWARD JOURNEY

AND AT THE FALL OF
THE EVENTIDE
THEY SAW THE
TREASURE THE POWERS HIDE
THEY SAW THE OUTLINE
OF THE LAST SHORE
THE UNDYING REGION OF
VALINOR

A NEW DEPARTURE
TOWARDS THE UNKNOWN
TOWARDS A MYSTERY
NOT YET SHOWN
AND A NEW DESTINY
IN THEIR HANDS
AS THEY SET FOOT
UPON THE WHITE SANDS
