Oonagh - Eldamar (English translation)

English translation

Eldamar

Versions: #1#2
A voice speaks
a nostalgia grows up
touched by the night
and woken up by the moon
the memories
at a distant happiness
beyond the horizon
leads the way back
 
Naira ëar, naira ëar, Endor lestalmë, Eldamar!
Naira ëar, naira ëar, tanna lutta nu i Menelmacar
Naira ëar, naira ëar, Endor lestalmë, Eldamar!
Naira ëar, naira ëar, telda ranta ló i menya lenda
 
Ela Eldamar – Eoo!
Ela Eldamar – Eoo!
Ela Eldamar – Eooo!
 
Síra an Elerína
 
the world breaks
get us out of here
our nation is far
our force with you
your bay encloses
the promised Land
what remains to hopes
is sent by you
 
Naira ëar, naira ëar, Endor lestalmë, Eldamar!
Naira ëar, naira ëar, tanna lutta nu i Menelmacar
Naira ëar, naira ëar, Endor lestalmë, Eldamar!
Naira ëar, naira ëar, telda ranta ló i menya lenda
 
Síra an Elerína
 
a voice speaks
and a wind comes up
so the fate wants
leads the way home
 
Naira ëar, naira ëar, Endor lestalmë, Eldamar!
Naira ëar, naira ëar, tanna lutta nu i Menelmacar
Naira ëar, naira ëar, Endor lestalmë, Eldamar!
Naira ëar, naira ëar, telda ranta ló i menya lenda

It'd be lovely if we could get someone who knows Quenya to translate the refrain here!

According to http://cosmicdandy.tumblr.com/post/115290807279/eldamar-by-oonagh-transl... :

Oh wide seas, we leave middle earth for Eldamar

Oh wide seas, we sail under Menelmacar*

Oh wide seas, we leave middle earth for Eldamar

Oh wide seas, the final piece of our journey!

Behold Eldamar - Eoo!

Now towards Elerína (an alternate name for Taniquetil. Literally “crowned with stars”)

* Menelmacar is a constellation (meaning “sword bearer of the heavens”) that appears in Middle Earth. Legend tells that the appearance of this constellation will signify Dagor Dagorlach
