Sheathed

- Fan Forever

Too long have I pleaded my case
too long has my youth been wasted
I can fight! My sword is needed!
But my sword is forever sheathed
hidden in darkness behind a throne

Ah! Sung is the valour of the shieldmaiden
as my brothers ride
as they fly on the plains
to slay our enemies

but Rohan denies me
and I wither away
behind a king’s throne
