"If only I could, as an arrow might, fly through the sky and find my fated mark," [. . .]

Atalanta

"If only I could, as an arrow might,

"If only I could, as an arrow might, fly through the sky and find my fated mark,"

"If only I could, as an arrow might, fly through the sky and find my fated mark," I thought each time I drew my bow and fired.

I wore the trophies of my daily hunt

I wore the trophies of my daily hunt as holy robes, a uniform of faith

I wore the trophies of my daily hunt as holy robes, a uniform of faith in praise of gods I soon would come to scorn.

The oath that bound me to my sacred role

The oath that bound me to my sacred role as priestess and as follower alike

The oath that bound me to my sacred role as priestess and as follower alike still chains me to the past I left behind.

Though now I run, I must in time submit

Though now I run, I must in time submit to give as tribute all my maiden charms

Though now I run, I must in time submit to give as tribute all my maiden charms in service of a prince's shameless whim.

A journey of a lifetime waits beyond

A journey of a lifetime waits beyond the sunset, in the infinite expanse

A journey of a lifetime waits beyond the sunset, in the infinite expanse that never sees the blinding light of day.

Come nightfall, all my wildest dreams come true.

Come nightfall, all my wildest dreams come true. At last, among the stars, I found my place.
