Lyrics (Shadow Speak)Edit

Dweade a doi e'tol, mi dium ond zia.


Diwethaf'wym soli'un nod ywr, url'kise gaefa troi at card iar


Dweade a doi e'tol, no'l Card'aid bachk er soli'on rro nod ywr, mi dium ond zai, hurl'wym er pam gollais aid


Literal TranslationEdit

Tell me you shall not come back, I have only the darkest of shadows now


Last summer you went away, cruel winter turns my soul to ice


Tell me you shall not come back, love since you have fell away, I have only the darkest of shadows now, no summer for my souls desire...

MeaningEdit

Tell me you shall not come back: This actually means 'They tell me', and is referencing the way one would recieve a notification telling them a loved one has fallen

I have only the darkest of shadows now: 'Darkest of shadows' is essentially an Umbrae Populus expression for extreme sorrow or sadness

Last summer you went away: In the old days of the tribal Umbrae Populus, Summer would be the time that armies would go on a recruitment drive to raise as many recruits as they could to raid other tribes food supplies for the winter

Cruel winter turns my soul to ice: The lover is left alone in the winter with no one to warm their soul. In the Umbrae Populus culture, 'soul' replaces 'heart' as the part of the body which loves

Tell me you shall not come back: See above

Love since you have fell away: 'Fell away' is used here to mean 'fallen away from the land of the living' In other words, the lover has died.

I have only the darkest of shadows now: See above

No summer for my souls desire: Essentially this means that there is no light at the end of the tunnel, as the loved one is dead and will not return, meaning there will be no summer to wash away winters hardships.
