I don’t know if this is the whole song or just parts of it, so a single line skip denotes regular story text between lyrics, and 2 line skips denotes perspective change or lots of text between lyrics, that way you can judge for yourself.

Lyrics[]

My father wept for a prince
And died with a spear in hand.

My mother hasn’t wept since
Or left a god un-damned.


Maybe I’ll go east, they say
Swords there can win a crown.

Rule king a year and a day
Be buried with great renown.


Long ago, the tale goes,
The sun rose in the west
It might be it will again:
Tarry not, or we’ll be dead.


The fire turns to ember,
I wake from a sorry dream
Morning rides in pale splendour
Chasing down a fading gleam.


The road is long and winding,
Though I did it love it once
And tread it still, searching
The bottom of many cups.


Long ago, the tale goes,
The sun rose in the west
It might be it will again:
Tarry not, or we’ll be dead.
