G├╗dkin's Song

Verse: Mother told me deathless monsters dwell beyond my home:

Pointed faces, demons' eyes, and hair like white-hot flame;

And ev'ry morning the sky is on fire,

Burning and blinding all under its eye.

Chorus: I want to be somewhere where life exists,

Somewhere where dreams can survive.

Keep by my side, as I leave this land behind

And I bid my home farewell.

Verse: Now I see the monsters aren't as frightening as I'd feared.

One has shown me kindness and has helped me to get by.

'Though the sun warms the earth, brightens the sky,

If flowers can take it, then so can I.

Chorus: I want to be somewhere where life exists,

Somewhere where dreams can survive.

Keep by my side, as I leave this land behind

And I bid my home farewell.

Verse: But I still don't understand the anger in their eyes,

Sneering words, and outdrawn blades that threaten me away.

Are these the monsters of which I was told? I

Wonder instead if the monster is I.

Chorus: I want to be somewhere where life exists,

Somewhere where dreams can survive.

Keep by my side, as I leave this land behind

And I bid my home farewell.

Verse: I'm so sorry, mother, that I didn't listen well.

I wish I had never left and was still safe at home.

But no home have I to return to.

My kin are all slain, as soon shall I be.

Chorus: I want to be somewhere where life exists,

Somewhere where dreams can survive.

Keep by my side, as I leave this land behind

And I bid my home farewell.
