1. Always and Never


I walk alone
On this twice shunted land,
I walk alone.

As the moon waxes and the sun wanes
I wander through the spray of stars the shine always,
The wave of eternity breaks upon the shores of life
And I am there, my heart buried deep in the sands of time,
When, oh when will Valinor call!
As one hundred voices shout as one,
Ten thousand years takes its toll
On one so sorrowful and so sincere
The fires of doom are beaten back by
Lamentations of those who have passed,
And on the grass of Valinor
Many will live again.
I am there, always, wondering.
Life grows ever weaker, but on the borders of memories
Of Heaven and Hell,
Tears upon the wind will heal.

And still I walk alone
On this twice shunted land,
I walk alone
