I was wondering if anyone knew the title to this song? ^^ I think... I found it when searching Heather Alexander songs, or Mercedes Lackey songs, but I'm sure it was mislabeled, because I haven't found any lyrics that are similar to the story I remember by either songwriter.
It was a story about a plain girl who was an elder sister to two younger beautiful ones. They had many suitors and were anxious to marry, but the father had a rule in place that the eldest sister must marry before the next, and so on. The plain girl was really kind, sweet, and had a beautiful voice but she was always overlooked for her more beautiful sisters. Anyways, one day the sisters devised a plan to get rid of the girl, and sent her off into the cold or snow (I'm not completely sure.. why, I've forgotten). So off she went... never doubting her sisters. Then when it was dark and cold, and she'd lost her way, or realized she might die, or something along those lines, she started singing, or maybe she was singing before, not sure. Anyway, a blind elven prince (? not sure if he was a prince, but I do know he was blind and elven) found her, fell in love with her because her beautiful voice, and they lived together happily in the woods.
I'm sorry for my mediocre, vague recollection of what happened in the song... Partially because of my vagueness I've had trouble locating the song title (ie. no lyrics to search by). Can anyone help? It'd be much appreciated.
Sorry for x-posting.
