A long time ago, in a land far away
An adventurous young man had heard of a legend
A legend of a hidden dragon kingdom
Where life was eternal

I have heard of the highlands
Where the Elder Dragon dwells
An enchanted place up high in the sky
It's a home of eternal life
Where no man has ever gone
It's a place where dragons live eternally
I must go there to find eternal life
I want to live forevermore
And to be free from my mortal destiny
Is there a way to find the highlands?

You must find the keys and magic to unlock the gate to immortality
But beware the dragons, they will guard their sacred lands

I will cross the seas
And ride across the plains
Fly over mountains
To find the secret keys and magic
To unlock the gate

Somehow, somewhere
I will live forever
Maybe someday, I'll get there
I will find my way

Take me far away
To the Highlands of the Elder Dragon
Fly me far away
To the magic kingdom of the Elder Dragon
I'll find my way

In a cold dark empty cavern
I found an Elder Scroll
It revealed the location of the keys
One was hidden in the ruins of the dwarves
And one was buried in the Twilight Forge
But where, where was the last key?

Now, what shall I do?
Hope is lost, I will never find
The last key to the secret dragon realm
But I will not give up
And I know my fate is out there, somewhere

I rode so far and wide
Across the lands and plains
To seal my fate and find the three keys
Two were right where the scroll told me to search
But the third key was still to be found

Now I am old and weak
I have searched all my life
But now I realise my time was wasted
This is my last breath
And I never found the third key
But what is that, a light?
My eternal life is there
The Elder Dragon is here

The years passed, kings and queens came and went
And empires flourished as well as crumbled
But the legend of the Highlands of the Elder Dragon remained a mystery

Take me far away
To the Highlands of the Elder Dragon
Fly me far away
To the Highlands of the Elder
The Highlands of the Elder Dragon
But now
I am home
