Minstrels sing and bards proclaim:
“whole kingdom has to celebrate
the great King who marries a nymph
coming from the Elvish land.
Ethereal shape, immortal soul
Wonderful daughter of the woods.
He is a strong and wise King
his sword doesn’t know defeat”.

The elves came from the forest
To punish the human’s arrogance
to avoid the sacrilegious union.
Their murderous rage
fell on village like’n hurricane:
“No mercy for the sinners!
Sacred laws have been broken,
we’ll wash shame in their blood!”
“Like ears of corn, one by one…
they must be all mowed!!!”

Alone among the human deads
Protected by your lover, you’ve survived.
To accept you, was the only guilt of these people
and now, they'r all dead.
Lookin’ for love in a human’s heart
Like a sweet and crazy hope.
You have found a cruel cold death,
Caused by your people’s steel.

Oh father…
my heart is crying but I’ve done what I had to do
what have you done?
the laws are immutable and you know this
They have no guilt
it’s your fault but I couldn’t allow:
I loved him,
you would have been sentenced forever.
why don’t you understand?
I did this ‘cause I love you… my daughter
