Over the misty mountains, nigh
the clouds rolled in the empty sky
they kissed the tops of mountains, high
until they dissipate and die
Over the misty mountains, cold
the glaciers shiver and then they fold
the polar bears, they stand up bold
whilst they slowly freeze to gold
Over the misty mountains, wild
a girl goes forth, a lonely child
she lifts her head and sadly smiled
her sorcery, so much beguiled


Ok so this may sound a bit like the song the dwarfs sing in 'the hobbit' (especially the line 'over the misty mountains, cold -which I actually wrote without realising that it was actually the title of the song. Honest) if you haven't heard that song it's amazing!!
