LYRICS

Welcome to the LYRICS PAGE of THE ONE RING, a new musical based on J.R.R. Tolkienís The Lord of the Rings.Since we launched the site in May the lyrics section has been one of the most popular features of the site.In an attempt to make the site easier to navigate, we have placed the lyrics on one page as opposed to the individual pages we had before.This has also allowed us to present additional lyrics.

Below is a list of the song lyrics available.This is only a list and not links which would take you to a specific lyric.You can just scroll down the page.

Also, if there are any lyrics you particularly like or dislike, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to go to the FORUM.Brad Marston, writer of THE ONE RING endeavors to answer all contacts personally.

THE WINDS OF CHANGE

LEGOLAS

HERE WE STAND IN THE EYE OF A STORM

WHILE THE WINDS OF WAR SWIRL ĎROUND US.

SEEMINGLY WE STAND SAFE AND WARM

BUT THE EDGE OF THE STORM HAS FOUND US.

WEíLL STAND FAST TO THE WINDS THAT BLOW

AND FIGHT TO SEE EVIL UNDONE.

BUT THE WINDS THAT BLOW

ARE THE WINDS OF CHANGE

AND THE CHANGE OF THE WORLDíS BEGUN.

LEGOLAS & GIMLI

CAN YOU SEE

THE CHANGE IN THE LEAVES?

CAN YOU FEEL A CHILL

IN THE AIR?

DOES THE STREAM

SING AS SWEETLY NOW?

THE WINDS OF CHANGE ARE THERE.

LEGOLAS, GIMLI, HOBBITS

GREY CLOUDS GROW

THERE IS DARK BELOW

GLADE AND GLEN

THAT WERE EVER FAIR.

IN THE WORLD

HEARTS AND MINDS GROW COLD.

THE WINDS OF CHANGE ARE THERE.

MAY THE RIVERSí FLOW

AND THE WINDS THAT BLOW

AND THE STARS SHINING BRIGHT ĎTIL THE DAWN.

SERVE WELL AS OUR GUIDE

IF FEARS TURN US ASIDE.

TO OUR QUEST, JOURNEY SWIFT! TRAVEL ON.

BOROMIR

LET THE EAST

LIVE IN FEAR AT LEAST

OF THE HEARTS

IN THE WEST THAT BEAT FREE.

WHETHER SWORD IN HAND.

OR IN SAURONíS LAND

BRAVE HEARTS BRING VICTORY.

ALL

MAY THE RIVERSí FLOW

AND THE WINDS THAT BLOW

AND THE STARS SHINGING BRIGHT ĎTIL THE DAWN

SERVE WELL AS YOUR GUIDE

NOTHING TURN US ASIDE

ON OUR QUEST, JOURNEY SWIFT! TRAVEL ON!!!

SAIL ON MY FRIEND

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††ARAGORN

NO HEIR-SON YOURS IS NO FAILURE.

SONGS OF YOUR GLORY WILL ENTHRALL.

BE AT PEACE FOR WHILE IíM LIVING,

THE LAND OF GONDOR WILL NOT FALL.

BOROMIR MAKE HASTE IN TELLING,

NEWS OF THE BEARER AND HIS RING.

BY WHICH COURSE DID THE ORCS TAKE HIM?

X††† (BOROMIR DIES IN ARAGORNíS ARMS.)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

BOROMIR ITíS TIME TO SAIL.

THE WIND BLOWS FRESH AND NEW.

THE STARS BURN BRIGHT AND CLEAR

FOR GUIDING YOU,

TO THE SEA. THE ENDLESS SEA.

SAIL ON MY FRIEND.

THEN WEíLL CATCH THE TURNING TIDE.

RACE FAST BEFORE THE MOON,

AND FLEE THE SAD FAREWELLS

THAT CAME TOO SOON,

ON THE SEA. THE ENDLESS SEA.

SAIL ON MY FRIEND.

WESTWIND CRY,

YOUR TEARS WILL WASH HIS EVíRY DAWN.

NORTHWIND DIE

AND HOLD HIM GENTLY WHEN IíM GONE.

SOUTHWIND FLY

AND BRING NEWS OF HIM ANON.

TELL ALL THE WORLD MY FRIEND

SAILED BRAVELY TO HIS END,

EAST OF THE MOON, WEST OF THE SUN.



BEYOND THE QUESTION

ARAGORN

YES SAURON WEILDS GREAT POWER.

AND BOROMIR IS SLAIN

THE FELLOWSHIP IN RUINS.

I FEAR I MAY NEVER HOPE AGAIN.

GANDALF

ARAGORN, YOUR HEARTíS HEAVY.

YOUR MIND IS IN DOUBT,

OVER THE CHOICES YOU MADE.

FALL NOT TO REGRET

OF THE COURSE THAT YOU SET

OR THE PRICE YOUR FRIENDS HAVE NOW PAID.

IN EVíRY LIFE THERE COMES A POINT

WHEN CHOICES MUST BE MADE.

ONE MORE BATTLE MUST BE FOUGHT,

A HIGHER PRICE THAT MUST BE PAID.

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT

YOU KNEW WHAT FATE HELD FOR YOU,

THAT YOUR DUTY HAD BEEN DONE,

THAT THE DEVIL HAD HIS DUE.

AND STILL YOU HAVENíT WON.

AND IN THE BLACK OF NIGHT YOU DREAM

OF DREAMS THAT WILL NOT DIE

CLING TO HOPES YOU HOPE WONíT FADE

AND FORGET ABOUT THE LIES

NOT THE PROMISES YOU MADE

TO FIGHT ON DESPITE YOUR DOUBT

AND THE FEAR THAT GRIPS YOUR HEART.

NOW THE FEARS ARE WINNING OUT

AND ITíS TEARING YOU APART.

SO YOU CRY ĎIT ISNíT FAIRí,

IN THE SILENT CHILL OF DAWN

AND YOU FIND YOUR DEMONS THERE

AND STILL SOMEHOW YOU GO ON.

LOOK BEYOND THE QUESTIONS.

SEARCH DEEP INSIDE YOUR FEAR.

TRUST A NEW DIRECTION,

NEW VOICES THAT YOU HEAR.

FOR WHEN YOU DOUBT YOU LEARN TO TRUST.

WHEN YOU FEAR YOU LEARN TO DARE

LOOK TO THE STRENGTH BEYOND YOUR OWN

YOU WILL FIND THE ANSWERS THERE.

WORSE IS WHEN YOU STUMBLE ON

A PATH THATíS NOT YOUR CHOICE.

WHEN YOU BATTLE WITHOUT HOPE

SPEAK FOR OTHERS WITH NO VOICE

WHO CAN ONLY PRAY YOUíLL COPE

WITH THE ROAD YOUíRE FORCED TO CHOOSE

AND THE PRICE YOUíRE FORCED TO PAY

WITH LIVES NOT YOURS TO LOSE.

AND YOU KNOW IT ISNíT FAIR

BUT SOMEHOW YOU GO ON

AS YOU SEARCH FOR DEMONS THERE

EVER WONDíRING WHERE THEYíVE

THERE BEYOND THE QUESTIONS

DOWN DEEP BENEATH YOUR FEAR

YOUíLL FIND YOUR DIRECTION

IN VOICES RINGING CLEAR.

FROM FEAR AND DOUBT YOU DARE TO TRUST

IN HOPES AND DREAMS YOU CAN SHARE.

SUCH IS THE STRENGTH THAT MAKES A KING.

YOUíLL FIND YOUR ANSWERS THERE.

WITH HIS WORDS

EOWYN

WITH HIS WORDS

HE SAYS ďYOU ARE JUST A WOMAN.Ē

EVEN HIS EYES,

SAY ďYOUR WORLD IS IN THIS HALL.Ē

ALL MY LIFE

I HAVE LONGED TO SEE AN OMEN

THAT SAYS I CAN BE MORE

THAN IíVE BEEN BEFORE.

IF IíM LESS I AM NOTHING AT ALL.

WITH HIS WORDS

ĎHE-SAYSí ďYOUR LIFEíS ALREADY CHOSEN.Ē

EVEN HIS EYES

SAY ďTHAT YOU MUST WAIT YOUR TURNĒ

ALL MY LIFE

IS A MOMENT THATíS BEEN FROZEN

WHERE TOMORROWíS NEVER COME

WITH THAT SHARP EXCITING HUM

BEING MORE IS A RIGHT I HAVE EARNED.

WHY MUST I LIVE MY LIFE IN A CAGE,

FILLED WITH A LONGING? FEELING THE RAGE

THAT IíLL ONLY BE FREE, I CAN LET THE HOUSE BURN

WHEN MEN GO TO WARS FROM WHICH THEY WONíT RETURN.

WHEN ALL THE GLORY IS WON,

WILL ANYONE KNOW ALL I HAVE DONE?

WITH HIS WORDS,

HE SAYS ďTHERE IS NO PLACE BESIDE ME.Ē

EVEN HIS EYES

SAY ďYOU MUST WALK A STEP BEHIND.Ē

ALL MY LIFE

IíVE NEVER ASKED A MAN TO GUIDE ME

IF HEíD JUST REACH OUT HIS HAND,

TOGETHER WE WOULD STAND.

TO MEET BRAVELY WHATEVER WE FIND.

BUT I CANNOT LIVE ON WISHES AND DREAMS

I MUST LIVE OUT IN THE WORLD

FIGHTING FOR GLORY COUNTERING SCHEMES

WITH MY OWN BANNER UNFURLED!

IN THIS WORLD

WHY MUST MY LIFE BE JUST A SHADOW

ĎNEATH THESE SKIES

WHERE SUN SHINES BRIGHT BUT DOES NOT WARM?

IF MY LIFE

IS ACCEPTING WHAT I HAD, THOUGH

IT WAS NOT TOO LATE CHANGE IT,

RE-ASSESS AND RE-ARRANGE IT,

I SHALL EVER FEAR FACING THE STORM.

IN HIS WORDS

HIS FRIENDS HEAR THEIR CALL TO GLORY.

IN HIS EYES

THEY SEE THE MAN THEYíD HOPE TO BE.

ALL MY LIFE

I DREAMED HIS WOULD BE MY STORY.

I WILL FIND A WAY TO MAKE IT

AND DARE ANYONE TO TAKE IT.

I WILL KNOW WHERE I STAND,

WITH A SWORD

IN MY HAND

AND HIS WORDS WILL AT LAST SET ME FREE



††

IS THERE

MERRY

IS THERE A PLACE IN THIS WORLD

I CAN FEEL THAT I BELONG?

A PLACE I WONíT BE LEFT BEHIND

OR BE DEFINED,

AS NEITHER TALL NOR STRONG.

WHY CAN I NOT BE MEASURED

BY THE FIRE WITHIN MY HEART?

I KNOW I CAN,

EQUAL ANY MAN

AND FINISH WHAT I START.

FARAMIR

IS THERE A FACE IN THIS WORLD

MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN HERS.

WE STAND UPON THE BRINK OF WAR

LIKE NONE BEFORE,

YET MY HEART FINíLLY STIRS.

IíVE NEVER KNOWN THE MEASURE

OF THIS FIRE IN HEART.

I PRAY I CAN

BECOME THE MAN

WHOM SHE LOVES FROM THE START.

EOWYN

WHEN WILL MY TIME COME

TO TAKE MY PLACE IN THIS WORLD.

WHEN MAY I CHOOSE

WHAT TO GAIN? WHAT TO LOSE?

HOW WILL I EVER BE FREE?

THEODEN

HOW WILL MY TIME ON THIS EARTH

BE MEASURED AFTER ALL?

WILL VICTíRY BE MY LEGACY?

OR SHALL I SEE,

MY BELOVED ROHAN FALL?

SHALL I SPEND LIVES AND TREASURE

ON THIS, MY FINAL STAND?

WELL DAMN MY FATE

I CELEBRATE,

WITH THE SWORD NOW IN MY HAND.

MERRY:†††††††††††††† IS THERE A PLACE

FARAMIR:†††††††††† OR A FACE

THEODEN:†††††††† OR A TIME

ALL:††††††††††††††††††††† I WOULD RATHER SEE?

MERRY:†††††††††††††† IS THIS PLACE

FARAMIR:†††††††††† IS HER FACE

THEODEN:†††††††† IS THIS TIME

ALL:††††††††††††††††††††† MY DESTINY, DOES THIS (M)PLACE/(F)FACE/(T)TIME

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† HOLD ALL IíM MEANT TO BE?

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† SHALL I NOW KNOW THE MEASURE

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† OF THE (M) FIRE/ (F) LOVE WITH/ (T) COURAGE

ALL:††††††††††††††††††††† IN MY HEART?

MERRY:†††††††††††††† OR IS THIS PLACE

FARAMIR:†††††††††† OR IS HER FACE

THEODEN:†††††††† OR IS THIS TIME

ALL:††††††††††††††††††††† WHAT IíVE HOPED FOR FROM THE START?

(Eowyn repeats the verse in counterpoint to the others.)

MERRY:†††††††††††††† THIS IS THE PLACE

FARAMIR:†††††††††† AND THE FACE

THEODEN:†††††††† AND THE TIME

ALL:††††††††††††††††††††† IíVE LONGED TO SEE.

MERRY:†††††††††††††† ITíS THIS PLACE

FARAMIR:†††††††††† ITíS HER FACE

THEODEN:†††††††† ITíS THIS TIME

ALL:††††††††††††††††††††† THAT DESTINY AND NOT THIS (M)PLACE/(F)FACE(T)TIME

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† HOLDS ALL IíVE HOPED TO BE.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† AT LAST I KNOW THE MEASURE

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† OF THE (M)FIRE/(F)LOVE WITH/(T)COURAGE

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† IN MY HEART.

MERRY:†††††††††††††† IT IS THIS PLACE

FARAMIR:†††††††††† HER FACE

THEODEN:†††††††† THIS TIME

ALL:††††††††††††††††††††† I HAVE (HOPED FOR)(DREAMED OF)(RULED FOR)

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† FROM THE START.

THEODENíS ANTHEM

THEODEN

MY HEIR-DAUGHTER

MY HEIR-SON

IT SEEMS NOW

THE ENDS BEFUN,

BUT DO NOT FEAR

IF THIS WAR SHOULD

LEAD TO MY END.

FOR I AM OLD

MY SUMMERS GONE,

AND I LEAVE YOU

TO CARRY ON.

YOU ARE THE BEST

OF WHAT IíVE DONE

AND WHO IíVE BEEN.

LET OTHERS TAKE

MY THRONE, MY CROWN,

INVADE MY HALL

AND CAST IT DOWN,

FOR WIN OR LOSE

THE WORLD IS CHANGED

FROM AGES PAST.

BUT WHEN I LOOK

INTO YOUR EYES

AND I FIND LOVE

THAT NEVER DIES,

I AM A KING,

LORD OF A REALM

THAT EVER LASTS.

I HOPE I LEAD MORE THAN I RULE.

MORE IS A KING, LESS IS A FOOL.

WITH PRIDE AND JOY I ONCE MORE LEAD THESE MEN

WITH LOVE FOR THIS LAND I MAY NOT SEE AGAIN.

SOLDIERS

WE RIDE FOR KING

AND FOR THIS LAND.

HE NEED BUT ASK.

THEREíS NO COMMAND.

WE DO NOT FEAR.

OUR LIVES WE PLEDGE

TO BRAVELY GIVE.

LET TRUMPETS SOUND

LET HERALDS SING.

WE RIDE WITH HOPE

BEHIND OUR KING.

ROHAN WILL KNOW

WHEN WE HAVE DIED

THAT WE HAVE LIVED.

SOLDIER (SOLO)

FAREWELL MY LOVE.

GOODBYE MY SON.

I SHALL RETURN

WHEN WAR IS DONE.

BUT SHOULD I FALL

KNOW THAT I FELL

THINKING OF YOU.

AND WHEN I REST

BENEATH THE HILL,

DROP TO YOUR KNEES;

YOUR HEARTíS GROWN STILL,

AND FEEL THE GRASS

WET WITH MY TEARS

FROM MISSING YOU.

DERNHELM:

WHEN POETS WRITE SONGS TO BE SUNG.

DERNHELM AND EOMER:

OF HOW WE FOUGHT, OF DEATH MET TOO YOUNG.

DERNHELM, EOMER AND SOLDIERS:

RAISE UP YOUR VOICE SINGING LOUD ONE AND ALL.

WITH THE FUTURE AT STAKE, WE ANSWERED THE CALL.

THEODEN:

OATHS THAT WERE TAKEN ARE NOW FULFILLED,

STRENGTHENING HEARTS AS CAN NEVER BE STILLED.

ALL:

WE RIDE FOR KING

AND FOR THIS LAND.

HE NEED BUT ASK,

THEREíS NO COMMAND.

WE DO NOT FEAR.

OUR LIVES WE PLEDGE

TO BRAVELY GIVE.

LET TRUMPETS SOUND.

LET VOICES RING.

WE BRAVELY RIDE

BEHIND OUR KING.

LET SAURON KNOW

THAT ROHAN RIDES

AND HOPE STILL LIVES.


I AM YOUR FRIEND

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† SAM

I WAS A FOOL TO LEAVE HIM ALONE.

WHAT COULD HAVE I BEEN THINKING?

THINKING IS NOT YOUR STRONG SUIT SAM.

OF THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE AN INKLING.

NOW THEY HAVE HIM AND I HAVE THE RING.

EVíRY THOUGHT I HAVE IS CURSED.

HOW CAN I LEAVE MR. FRODO TO THEM?

WHAT WOULD HE DO IF ROLES WERE REVERSED?

I COULD CLAIM THE RING!

BEHOLD THE HOBBIT KING!

COULD I LEAVE HIM ALONE,

THE ONE TRUE FRIEND THAT I KNOWN...

MAYBE ITíS A GENTLE VOICE,

THAT OLD PICTURE ON THE WALL.

OR HOW YOU LET THE MOMENT PASS

WHEN YOU HAD NO TIME AT ALL.

MAYBE ITíS MORE HOW YOU FEEL

THAN WHAT YOU SAY OR DO.

OR MAYBE HOW I WISH AT NIGHT

THAT ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.

YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE PROTECTING ME,

WHEN YOU TRIED TO SAY GOODBYE.

AND ALTHOUGH THAT WAS LONG AGO,

I STILL THINK OF IT AND CRY.

I CRY FOR ALL THE SIMPLE THINGS

I NEVER GOT TO SAY.

I KNOW THAT YOU CANíT HEAR ME

BUT IíLL SAY THEM ANYWAY.

I AM YOUR FRIEND.

THATíS ALL I AM.

THATí ALL I ASK.

ITíS ALL I CAN.

I WAS THERE AT THE START

AND IíLL BE THERE AT THE END.

IF THEREíS A BEAT LEFT IN MY HEART,

I AM YOUR FRIEND.

WHEN YOU WONDER WHERE HOPE LIES

I HOPE YOUíLL THINK OF ME.

I WILL BE THAT GENTLE VOICE

THAT OLD PICTURE THAT YOU SEE.

WHEN ALL OF YOUR PAST MISTAKES

SEEM TO BE HAUNTING YOU.

JUST THINK OF ME

AND IíLL BE THERE.

THEREíS NOTHING YOU MUST DO.

I AM YOUR FRIEND.

THATíS ALL I AM.

THATíS ALL I ASK.

ITíS ALL I CAN.

NO STORM CAN TEAR US APART.

THE THUNDER THAT YOU HEAR,

IS THE BEATING OF MY HEART.

I AM YOUR FRIEND.

THATíS ALL I AM.

THATíS ALL I ASK.

ITíS ALL I CAN.

I WAS THERE AT THE START,

AND IíLL BE THERE AT THE END.

IF THEREíS A BEAT LEFT IN MY HEART.

I AM YOUR FRIEND.

I AM YOUR FRIEND.

I AM YOUR FRIEND.

(Spoken) IíM COMING MR. FRODO!



ONE MORE TOMORROW

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ARAGORN

MY EYES HAVE SEEN TOO MUCH DEATH,

AND YET I MUST SEE MORE.

AT TIMES I CANíT REMEMBER

THOSE IíVE LOVED AND LOST BEFORE.

SOMETIMES IN THE MORNING,

WHEN IíM ALL ALONE,

JUST BEFORE THE SUNRISE,

THE NEW DAY NOT YET SHOWN,

I TRY TO REMEMBER,

THE FACES I HAVE KNOWN.

TRY TO HEAR THEIR LAUGHTER,

AND HOLD IT AS MY OWN.

SOMETIMES IN THE TWILIGHT,

THE SUN ATOP THE HILL.

AS DARKNESS GROWS RESTLESS

AT FAITH IT CANNOT STILL.

I CAN FEEL A BURNING,

DOWN DEEP WITHIN MY SOUL.

I KNOW ITíS THEIR YEARNING

FOR TOMORROWS THAT DEATH STOLE.

I CALL THEIR NAMES,

SOME, I SHARED THEIR DREAMS.

I HELD THEIR HOPES,

IN MY ARMS IT SEEMS.

ALL THE LOST TOMORROWS,

THEY WILL NEVER SEE.

NEVER TO REPAY THEM

THE HOPE THEY GAVE TO ME.

THERE ARE TOO MANY VOICES

I SHALL NOT HEAR AGAIN.

VOICES STILLED BY CHOICES

I WAS FORCED TO MAKE, AND THEN

I LIVE WITH THEIR MEMíRIES;

WITH THEIR BLOOD UPON MY HANDS.

AND PRAY THEY WILL FORGIVE ME

OR AT LEAST UNDERSTAND.

I KNOW THEIR FACES,

THEIR HOPES, THEIR DREAMS, THEIRLIVES.

WITH MY TOMORROWS,

EACH OF THEM SURVIVES.

WITH EACH NEW TOMORROW,

THEIR END I CAN DELAY.

IF THEY LIVE IN MY MEMíRY,

THEY LIVE ANOTHER DAY.

ONE MORE TOMORROW,

THIS I PLEDGE MY FRIENDS.

MORE HOPE THAN SORROW.

TOMORROWS WITHOUT END.

WITH ONE MORE TOMORROW,

THE TWILIGHT FADES AWAY,

AND WITH THE MORNINGíS SUNRISE

YOUíLL LIVE,I SWEAR YOUíLL LIVE ANOTHER DAY.

.


THE CONFRONTATION

MOUTH OF SAURON

I AM THE MOUTH OF SAURON

KNOW HIS MIND, SERVE AT HIS HAND.

LIEUTENANT OF THE TOWER

BARAD-DUR AND OF HIS LAND.

IS THERE ONE AMONGST THIS RABBLE,

PITIFUL HOST, THIS MEAGER BAND.

WITH AUTHORITY TO TREAT WITH ME

OR EVEN WIT TO UNDERSTAND?

NOT THOU AT LEAST PRETENDER††††† (Looking at Aragorn)

TO A THRONE NEíRE COME TO PASS.

IT TAKES MORE TO MAKE A KING

THAN A PEICE OF ELVEN GLASS.

PERHAPS ITíS THROUGH THIS ARMY,

YOUR REGAL STATION I SHOULD KNOW?

A MERE PACK NO MORE THAN ANY

BRIGAND OF THE HILLS COULD SHOW.

ARAGORN(Stepping forward)

EVIL MASK I CLAIM NO KINGSHIP,

PERHAPS MY GAZE REVEALS MY WILL.

IíVE NOT MOVED MY HAND TO WEAPON

YET YOU SEEM TOíVE HAD YOUR FILL.

MOUTH OF SAURON

IF YOUR PURPOSE IS TO MENACE,

I ASSURE YOU THAT YOU FAILED.

IíM A HERALD AND AMBASSADOR

AND THUS MAY NOT BE ASSAILED.

GANDALF

SPARE ME YOUR INDIGNATION

YOUR MASTERíS POWíR MAKES YOU TOO BOLD.

THE LAND OF MORDOR KNOWS NO HONOR

NEITHER LAW NOR CUSTOM HOLDS.

STILL NO ONE HAS THREATENED YOU

FROM US YOUíVE NAUGHT TO FEAR

ĎTIL ERRAND DONE OR WISDOM COME

TO SAURON. HIS END DRAWS NEAR.

MOUTH OF SAURON

SO WE FIND A SPOKESMAN HERE AT LAST.

THE FRAIL GREYBEARD, WE FEARED YOUR TIME HAD PASSED.

WE HAVE HEARD OF YOU AT WHILES,

AND THY WANDíRINGS OíER THE MILES.

YOUR PLOTS AND MISCHIEF DELIVER YOU AT LAST.

WELL MASTER GANDALF YOUíVE GONE TOO FAR.

YOUR FOOLISH WEBS, NO MORE MENACE THAN THE STARS.

FOR SOON YOU WILL MEET YOUR FATE

AT THE FEET OF SAURON GREAT.

THESE TOKENS WILL REVEAL JUST HOW LOST YOU ARE.

PIPPIN

CAN THAT BE THE SWORD OF SAMWISE,

AND FRODOíS COAT OF MITHRIN MAIL.

THEY ARE THE TOKENS OF OUR DOWNFALL.

OUR NOBLE QUEST IS DOOMED TO FAIL.

GANDALF

(SPOKEN) SILENCE!!

MOUTH OF SAURON

ANOTHER OF THESE HALFLINGS.

WHAT USE THEY ARE WE CANNOT GUESS.

BUT TO SEND AS SPIES TO MORDOR

YOUR BENT TO FOLLY IS NO LESS.

WE THANK HIM FOR HIS WITNESS,

FOR ON THIS I CAN RELY.

THESE TOKENS ARE WELL KNOWN TO YOU

THIS IS A FACT YOU CANíT DENY.

GANDALF

I WISH NOT TO DENY THEM,

FOR THEIR HISTORYíS WELL KNOWN.

IF TíWOULD END YOUR FOUL COMMISSION,

I WOULD CLAIM THEM AS MY OWN.

NO DOUBT YOUR AIM IS FIENDISH.

WHY TO US DO YOU THESE BEAR?

MOUTH OF SAURON

DWARF-COAT, ELF-CLOAK, SWORD OF THE SHIRE

SEEDS OF CONSPIRACY IS THERE.

NOW PERCHANCE ARE THEY THAT BORE THESE HERE

WELL KNOWN TO YOU, AND ONES WHOM YOU HOLD DEAR.

OR GRIEFLESS THEIR LIVES TO LOSE,

IT WILL BE THEIR FATE YOU CHOOSE

FOR SPIES SAURON HOLDS NEITHER LOVE NOR FEAR.

GOOD! WELL LOVED BY YOU THEY WERE I SEE.

OR THEIR TASK FAILED, BE CAUSE FOR YOU TO FLEE.

THE WILL SUFFER YEARS ALIVE

IN FOUL TORMENT WE CONTRIVE

TAKE MY LORDíS TERMS OR THIS SHALL SURELY BE.

GANDALF

TAME YOUR BLUSTER SLAVE OF SAURON.

HAVE NO DOUBT THAT WE STAND FIRM.

IT IS ONLY OF YOUR CONSEL

THAT WE WEARY Ė NAME THE TERMS.

MOUTH OF SAURON

These are the terms.The rabble of Gondor and its deluded allies shall withdraw at once beyond the River Anduin, first taking oaths never again to assail Sauron the Great in arms, open or in secret.All lands east of the Anduin shall be Sauronís forever, solely.West of the Anduin as far as the Misty Mountains and the Gap of Rohan shall be tributary to Mordor and men there shall bear no weapons but shall have leave to govern their own affairs.But they shall help to rebuild Isengard which they have wantonly destroyed, and that shall be Sauronís and there his lieutenant shall dwell.Not Saruman, but one more worthy of trust.

GANDALF

IF I READ YOUR MIND CORRECTLY,

YOU THINK ME SIMPLE OR US KNAVES.

YOUíD BE ISENGARDíS LIEUTENANT.

YOU OUR TYRANT, WE YOUR SLAVES.

THIS IS MUCH TO DEMAND FOR THE LIFE OF THESE SERVANTS.

TO RECEIVE WHAT WOULD OTHERWISE TAKE MANY BATTLES TO GAIN.

OR HAS THE FIELDS OF GONDOR

DESTROYED HIS HOPES IN WAR

SO THAT HE FALLS TO HAGGLING

AND TAKES UP ARMS NO MORE.

IF INDEED WE RATED THESE SERVANTS SO HIGHLY

HOW COULD WE KNOW THAT YOUR MASTER WOULD KEEP HIS PART?

YIELD NOW TO ME THESEPRISíNERS

AND ONCE THEY ARE AT HAND,

THE CAPTAINS HERE WILL COUNCIL

AND CONSIDER YOUR DEMANDS.

MOUTH OF SAURON

Do not bandy words in your insolence with the Mouth of Sauron.†† These are the terms. Take them or leave them.

GANDALF

THESE WEíLL TAKE IN OUR FRIENDSí MEMíRY,

BOTH THEIR GARMENTS AND THE SWORD.

TO YOUR TERMS THEY ARE REJECTED.

TAKE THAT MESSAGE TO YOUR LORD.

YOUR EMBASSY IS OVER

AND YOUR DEATH DRAWS NEAR UPON.

CLOSE FOREVER MOUTH OF SAURON.

I COMMAND THEE SLAVE, BE GONE!!



I REMEMBER

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† FRODO

I REMEMBER

HOW YOU FOUND ME.

RAISED ME UP

AND HELD ME TO THE SUN.

DRIED MY TEARS AWAY

LIKE SO MANY YESTERDAYS,

WHEN I WAS LOST AND FEARED MY TIME WAS DONE.

SO I LEAVE YOU

MY COMPANION.

I MUST SAIL

FOR MY REST FAR FROM HERE.

MY OLD FRIEND DO NOT GRIEVE.

IT IS MY TIME TO LEAVE

AS THE DAYS OF WONDER DISAPPEAR.

WE FOUGHT TO SAVE OUR LAND.

WE SAVED IT NOT FOR ME,

I TRUST IT TO YOUR HAND,

AS THIS SHOULD BE.

REMIND THEM HOW WE LIVED.

DONíT LET OUR MEMíRIES FADE.

THE NOBLE VOICES STILLED,
THE PRICE WE PAID.

TRUST ME MY FRIEND,

YOU WILL FOLLOW,

WHEN AT LAST,

YOUR DAYS HERE TOO HAVE RUN.

BEYOND THE SECRET GATE

A NEW PATH WILL AWAIT,

JUST WEST OF THE MOON, EAST OF THE SUN.

SAM

OUR PATHíS WERE ALWAYS ONE.

THE JOYS AND PAINS ALL SHARED.

IN EVíRY DEED IíVE DONE

YOUR STRENGTH WAS THERE.

YOU CANíT SAIL FROM MY HEART.

NO BREEZE CAN BLOW SO STRONG.

SO LET YOUR JOURNEY START

TO WHERE YOU BELONG.

††††††††††††††† SAM††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† FRODO

IN TIME IíLL FIND YOU THERE

SAM & FRODO

WEST OF THE MOON EAST OF THE SUN.


ALL

OUR PATHS WERE ALWAYS ONE.

THE JOYS AND PAINS ALL SHARED.

IN EVíRY DEED WEíVE DONE,

OUR STRENGTH WAS ALWAYS THERE.

YOU CANíT SAIL FROM OUR HEARTS,

NO BREEZE CAN BLOW SO STRONG.

SO LET THE JOURNEY START,

TO WHERE WE BELONG.

TRUST US MY FRIEND,

WE WILL FOLLOW,

WHEN AT LAST,

OUR DAYS HERE TOO HAVE RUN.

BEYOND THE SECRET GATE,

A NEW PATH WILL AWAIT.

WEST OF THE MOON,

EAST OF THE SUN.
