1. The Lament Of Glorfindel

- The Lament Of Glorfindel -

I can hear them dying still

Hear their cries against my will

Smoke and fire

Dark desire

Sold out Gondolin

Wind is howling in my ears

Dries away my salty tears

Tall I stand

Sword in my hand

Above Gondolin

Demon breath has scorched my skin

Wiped out all my friends and kin

Last ones dying

Crawling, trying

Fleeing Gondolin

Handle slippery with blood

From whose wound this crimson flood

Steals the life

In pain and strife

Of ruined Gondolin

There's no need for my defence

My resistance makes no sense

I will fall

Before the walls

Of fair Gondolin

Maeglin, I curse your name

And this beast of shade and flame

Final blow

My blood will flow

Farewell, Gondolin

Born again in Arda changed

To these times I feel estranged

Silent trees

No hope to seize

After Gondolin

You, my friend, are brave and wise

Naked truth before your eyes

Every breath

Is Elven death

I leave for Gondolin.
