3. II.

Sulimë, 2988 TA

Do you recall the turning of the tide
that swept away the sun and veiled the sky
till naught was left but cold and iron pride?

It's in the wind alone I dare confide
the secrets and the tears I dare not cry.
Do you recall the turning of the tide?

Do you recall the ocean far and wide?
I tried and failed, I fail, I fail and try
till naught is left but cold and iron pride.

Oh stay but for a moment by my side,
make me believe that hope is last to die.
Do you recall the turning of the tide?

It's in the wind alone I dare confide
that I have seen the truth and choose the lie.
Do you recall the turning of the tide?
Naught now is left but cold and iron pride...

I am afraid, Finduilas, so afraid...
