Phandolin Fair/Canticle

songsbyscribe:

A TAZ filk of Simon and Garfunkle’s “Scarborough Fair/Canticle” written by the lovely and talented Nana Graye ( @howtotrainyournana ) and sung by me!

Lyrics:

Are you goin’ to Phandalin fair?
Promises, missions, bonds, and time
Remember me to one who passed there
She once was a true love of mine

Tell her to make me an umbrella grand
Promises, missions, bonds, and time
That’s dear to the heart and light in the hand
Then she’ll be a true love of mine

[On the deck of a ship run by love and bonds true
Tracings of memories; robes red as blood
Wrap all ‘round the travelers from worlds away
Marks them fore-bearers of Hunger’s dark call]

Tell her to find me the Light as it falls
Promises, missions, bonds, and time
To split it apart and dampen its calls
So people instead fall prey to its thralls

[On a base on the moon on the evening of war
Mem’ries recovered and fam’ly reclaimed
Between the dark void or pale ashes instead
Choose with your heart and trust despite pain]

Tell her be patient and hold tight to trust
Promises, missions, bonds, and time
Though mem’ries be static and bodies be dust
Bonds forge again and love once more shines

[War bellows blazing with savage delight
The Hunger directs its armies to kill
The world fights against a foe it is blind to
And waits for the heroes hearts hope to instill]

Are you goin’ to Phandalin fair?
Promises, missions, bonds, and time
Remember me to some who passed there
They once were dear fam’ly of mine.
