Trust is the name of a song that Matrim Cauthon remembers while dancing in Salidar. It is unlikely that those lyrics are known or intended by the musicians. [1] He has the memory of the man that wrote the song, or at least those lyrics. [1]

LyricsEdit

Give me your trust, said the Aes Sedai.
On my shoulders I support the sky.
Trust me to know and to do what is best,
And I will take care of the rest.
But trust is the color of a dark seed growing.
Trust is the color of a heart’s blood flowing.
Trust is the color of a soul’s last breath.
Trust is the color of death.

Give me your trust, said the queen on her throne,
for I must bear the burden all alone.
Trust me to lead and to judge and to rule,
and no man will think you a fool.
But trust is the sound of the grave-dog’s bark.
Trust is the sound of betrayal in the dark.
Trust is the sound of a soul’s last breath.
Trust is the sound of death.

Give me your trust, said the king on high...
Give me your trust, said the lady and lord...
Give me your trust, said the love of your life...
Trust is the taste of death.
