Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows – Eldorado lyrics
[text by Edgar Allan Poe]

Gaily bedight,
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.

But he grew old-
This knight so bold-
And o'er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like Eldorado.

And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow-
"Shadow," said he,
"Where can it be-
This land of Eldorado? "

"Over the Mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride, "
The shade replied-
"If you seek for Eldorado!"
