1. Finduilas' Song

I dreamed a dream of waters deep
That rose and sang my heart to sleep
Beneath a silver sky.

I dreamed of ships to bear me home,
Far from the sentinels of stone
That laugh and watch me die.

I dreamed a life I thought to find
Of past and future intertwined
Ere morning killed the stars,

Ere shadow veiled the fading light
and drowned my dreams in endless night
that left but angry scars.

I dreamed a dream of waters wide
and gave my heart up to the tide
that sailed my soul up high.

They say there is a path to find
As hope and memory turn blind
I promise this, I’ll try.

For you, I’ll try,

I’ll try.
