lyrics

Take my hand
We’ll travel this dark land
To the place where the river meets the sea
Follow me
Along this crooked path
I will be your eyes to see
Put your trust in me
And out of shadow I will lead

(Pre-chorus)
The primeval forest’s a sinister road
A trap for the craven, a test for the bold
A place for the helpless when things fall apart
Lost in the barrow, the trembling starts
The boughs of the trees are twisted and gnarled
The branches a blanket--a burial shroud
A scaffold for traitors high up on the hill
Death to the stranger that won’t bend to its will

(Chorus)
Can you remember the place?
On the shoreline
Lonely sky and sea
Can you pick up the pace?
Can you see that twilight's breaking?
Night is drawing near

Cold as death
Alive and without breath
Wicked whispers in the trees
Tarry here
And today may be your last
Morgoth is drawing near

(Pre-chorus)

(Chorus)

In the grey mist of dawn
Hear the wind's song
The chant of the sea
Washing over me
We're sailing away
On wings of a new day
Our worries abate
The havens await on distant shorelines
