Fall of Gondolin

In The Vale of Tumladen, Gondolin was built
Within the circle of Echoriath,
The time was dawn, the first day of summer
A glow dyed the mountain snow red

An army of orcs marching in Morgoths name
North from the mountain they rain
a council of war called by Turgon the wise
a time to resist or meet demise

the battle draws near
we stand near the western wall
will I see
the beginning of Gondolins fall

I ready my blade, as I dive into battle
In combat I fought and I slaughtered
By whip of the Balrog, I wounded became
I must fight though this strain

standing in a pool of blood
enduring I answer my call
I might see
The beginning of Gondolins fall

Cornered in and nowhere to go
A sacrifice is what I have to do
Gothmog their leader has to be slain
My life will not end in vain

I take my last breath
Before I drown in the well
Have I seen
The beginning of Gondolins fall

A thought comes before me
I start to recall
I have seen
The beginning of Gondolins fall
