Song of the Zephyrites From Guild Wars 2,

Please forgive the caterwauling and head to the Zephyr Sanctum in game, to hear the NPC do a much better job of singing this.

Lyrics:

The summer sun shone bright once more, warmed wood and cloth of home.
We honoured those who came before, and journeyed where they roamed.
Alas, alas, we’ve no more peace, no ally from on high.
We’ll make our way to brighter day and into clearer skies.
No more to tame the wind and rain, the skies to swallow whole.
She flies no more in glinting beam and leaves a hollow hole.
Alas, her magic strewn in sand. Alas, her soul undone.
The clouds shed tears upon the land for the loss of our crystal sun.
No more to tame the wind and rain, the skies to swallow whole.
She flies no more in glinting beam and leaves a hollow hole.
Alas, alas, how time must pass. Ancient, magical friend.
So terrible, so dreadful that so treasured should so end.
No more to tame the wind and rain, the skies to swallow whole.
She flies no more in glinting beam and leaves a hollow hole.
Alas, alas, alas, alas…
Alas, and so we go…
We fly on high into the sky…
And cry, “Alas, alas, alas…”
