[edit] Lyrics

Ai! laurië lantar lassi súrinen,
yéni únótimë ve rámar aldaron!
yéni ve lintë...

Et Eärello Endorenna utúlien.
Sinome maruvan ar Hildinyar tenn' Ambar-metta!

[edit] Translation

Alas! golden leaves fall in the wind,
long years numberless as [the] wings of trees!
Long years like swift...

Out of the Great Sea to Middle-earth I am come.
In this place I will abide, and my heirs, unto the ending of the world
