Lyrics:
Verei cu wiru julime
Throw wohi mi cru, wohi.
Manja kheri lei worhed koro threi truh.
Manjarho gandhalei rhu freilhed,
Throw wohi mi cru, mi.
Thei mi cru thora, thei mi cru ver.
Thu ti fruhlurha, thei, wo thei.

Manjarho gandhalei rhu freilhed,
Throw wohi mi cru, mi.
Thei mi cru thora, thei mi cru ver.
Thu ti fruhlurha, thei, wo thei.

Verei cu wiru julime
Throw wohi mi cru,
Throw wohi mi cru, wohi.

None I'd recognize. People in another forum say it's a fictional language with no published translation:

I think that this is maybe Galego language,'coz in runet there is a translation of the song. But idk this is Galego language or not.

Galego? You mean Galician? That's close enough to Spanish that I can tell that the text above is not written in it.

Yeah, I mean Galician language.

Then this is maybe really fictional language.

Anton, I think it's a Gaelic inspired fictional language. It sounds like Gaelic (Irish) but I can't recognise a single word. In Gaelic the text would look different but some sound collocations were taken off Gaelic.

I think it's unlikely to be Gaelic-inspired as there are sounds that occur neither in gaeilge nor in gàidhlig nor in gaelg. In fact the sound seems to me to be more similar to Welsh than to any of the three living Gaelic languages (but perhaps that's because my Welsh is just about non-existent so maybe I'm missing some obvious counterindications in the sound). Or maybe it's loosely based on one of Tolkien's artificial languages?

That's just pretty sounds put together to create an Elvish feel.
Don't expect too much from a video game sound track Regular smile
Based on the phonetics, I'd say it's an English speaker trying hard to sound exotic, but still staying well within the range of English phonemes.

I'm pretty sure this is a made-up language created specifically for this video game (such as Dragon for The Elder Scrolls). I don't recognize any word in it, but I'm sure it isn't Galician. If you're still interested, you can ask whoever posted this video if they know it - but that language may have no name.

First of all, it's not Welsh because it's neither a Gaelic, nor even an Indo-European language. It's not a Turkic language, besides. I suspect, it's not a language, indeed. Nevertheless it could be probably deciphered if we knew the native language of the author/singer.

Well, the singer is German, isn't she? So, we should find an expert in German lullabies, 'cause the song has the structure of a typical lullaby. Since that we'll have a chance to find a song close to the subject in its tune and thereby decipher it. Wink smile

Or maybe you should watch the cutscenes of Spellforce (picking the proper version, I think there are three installments out there) and see what the plot is about Wink smile

Maybe... But I don't have much time to play games, so let it be done by somebody else... Regular smile
