Penelope's Song

I'm listening to my new music, and Penelope's Song by Loreena McKennitt just started. For those of you reading 'I Remember You Not Fondly', this was the song I was thinking of during the part where Triona has been burning in the sun and hears music as she comes back to life. The lyrics seemed fitting somehow.


Now that the time has come
Soon gone is the day
There upon some distant shore
You'll hear me say

Long as the day in the summer time
Deep as the wine-dark sea
I'll keep your heart with mine
'Til you come to me

There like a bird I'd fly
High through the air
Reaching for the sun's full rays
Oh I'd find you there

And in the night when our dreams are still
Or when the wind falls free
I'll keep your heart with mine
'Til you come to me

Now that the time has come
Soon gone is the day
There upon some distant shore
You'll hear me say

Long as the day in the summer time
Deep as the wine-dark sea
I'll keep your heart with mine
'Til you come to me


I think it works as a song that fits the story overall. Don't you think?
