Whisperwood: Music

Elvin Song

Act IX: Eastern Journey
Scene I: Elvin Song

Followed an Elvin song
to a glade in the Whisperwood
Guided through a moon-lit night
by morning light he stood
He sang a song that opened my eyes
it opened my heart and filled my mind
Forgetting my pain and hearing his voice
he told me that destiny is a choice

Elvin songs and mandolin tunes
Lyre strings and piccolo flutes
Morris jigs and tapping sticks
Peace pipes under the moon
Elvin songs and minstrel tunes
Mandolin jigs and piccolo flutes
Pipes of peace and pipes of Pan
Calumet under the moon

Elric sang a minstrel song
it’s time for life to move along
From war to peace in just one night
your charms deceived, let your music delight
Elric sang a sylvan song
come with me now lets be gone
Trees of life will attain their height
and songs you sing will shine so bright

He said we would go to lands unknown
i would walk as a sheep where wolf packs roam
that both of my halves would be stronger as one
when i heal myself and persecute none
i could come with him or return to my war
return to the Elves and settle the score
But for the first time in my life i began to care
Life for me began there


Elric sang an Elvin song
you will find panacea before too long
Never again will you go to war
dreamin’ now dreams never dreamt before

Elric sang the song of songs
life it is the player and we’re the pawns
You’ve come out of the dark and into the light
you’ll change the world with the songs you write
