And so the distance grows to light, to life, to hope
I am falling through the smoke and through the clouds
Was this why I left the dark of my father’s halls?
Always the aching, longing for light and beauty
Always the trappings of shadows and darkness and pain
Did I really dream that I could live in the light?
Madness I learnt and hatred for boldness and beauty
Under the shadows that darkened my father’s lands
Why did I attempt to claim both boldness and light?
And now the distance grows to light, to life, to hope.
I betrayed the light to darkness, chose my path.
How did I dare to dream of light… of her?
