The Lord of the Rings | A Beautiful Song

The Lord of the Rings

I found this song at the end of the movie, The Return of the King (DVD). The song was played at the end while the closing credits were rolling. Annie Lennox (the singer) has a beautiful voice.  Here is: Into the West 

Lay Down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You have come 
to journey’s end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones
who came before
They are calling
From across 
The distant shore
Why do you weep?
What are these tears
upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears
Will pass away
Safe in my arms
You’re only sleeping
What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls
call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come
To carry you home
And all will turn 
to silver glass.
A light on the water
All souls pass
Hope fades
into the world of night.
Through shadows falling
out of memory and time
Don’t say
we have come now to the end.
White shores are calling,
you and I will meet again.
And you’ll be here 
in my arm arms,
just sleeping.
What can you see
on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls 
call?
Across the sea
a pale moon rises.
The ships have come
to carry you home.
And all will turn
to silver glass.
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West
