In Uthenera

Been playing Dragon Age: Origins for a while now thanks to Seng Chee. These song captivates me, not only because of the FMV in the game, but the words in the song too.



Lyrics:

hahren na melana sahlin
emma ir abelas
souver'inan isala hamin
vhenan him dor'felas
in uthenera na revas

vir sulahn'nehn
vir dirthera
vir samahl la numin
vir lath sa'vunin


Translated from the elven tongue:


elder your time is come
now I am filled with sorrow
weary eyes need resting
heart has become grey and slow
in waking sleep is freedom

we sing, rejoice
we tell the tales
we laugh and cry
we love one more day


-- From "In Uthenera," traditional elven song of unknown origin.
