In the embers' red glow
When the fires burn low
I think of places I roam
Though my journey is long
One good thing keeps me strong:
The thought of the land I call home.

Where the forest is green
The fair people are seen
Good folk for miles around.
Simply ask them your need
And you surely receive
The fruits of my homeland abound.

Chorus x 2
And though I roam far
Following my star
You are my thought and my day
For wherever I roam
So far from home
My heart in Tel'Ruid stay.

Up from Moonglow land
Where the waves are bland
Southdown across to the lair
You find fighters so bold
And great stories are told
Of ladies with beautiful hair.

Elvish Arts are not bad
Fairy wine I have had
The Glade fulfils every dream
Here good wishes come true
All from Jhelom to Yew
No likeness you find so I deem.

Chorus x 2
And though I roam far
Following my star
You are my thought and my day
For wherever I roam
So far from home
My heart in Tel'Ruid stay.

There is Chivalry rare
Elvish ladies so fair
With smiles of heavenly blue
Days will never be grey
When you live with the Fay
And perhaps one will smile at you.

I may wander alone
Very far from my home
In towns and mountains of yore
But despite all my days
And mysterious ways
My heart calls me back to this shore.

Chorus x 2
And though I roam far
Following my star
You are my thought and my day
For wherever I roam
So far from home
My heart in Tel'Ruid stay.
