In Dreams

Featured in The Breaking of the Fellowship
Lyrics by Philippa Boyens
Music by Howard Shore
Performed by Edward Ross

When the cold of Winter comes
Starless night will cover day
In the veiling of the sun
We will travel in bitter rain

But in dreams
I still hear your names
And in dreams
We will meet again

When the seas and mountains fall
And we come to end of days
In the dark I hear a call
Calling me there,
I will go there,
And back again

May It Be

Lyrics by Roma Ryan
Music by Howard Shore
Composed and performed by Enya

(Song in English & Quenya)

May it be
An evening star
Shines down
Upon you
May it be
When darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk along a road
Oh how far you are from home

Morni? ut?li?
Believe and you
Will find your way
Morni? alanti?
A promise lives
Within you now

May it be
The shadow's call
Will fly away
May it be
A journey on
To light the day
When the night is all gone
You may rise
To find the sun

Morni? ut?li?
Believe and you
Will find your way
Morni? alanti?
A promise lives
Within you now
A promise lives
Within you now ...

Morni? darkness
Alanti? has fallen down
Ut?li? has come


(In Sindarin)

Si boe -dhanna.
Ae -esteli, esteliach nad.

Estelio han, estelio han, estelio,

Not the end [it] is the beginning.
Now it is necessary [that] don't-fall
If you don't trust some thing.

Not the end [it] is the beginning.

Breath of Life

(In Sindarin)

Uich gwennen na 'wanath ah na dhn.
An uich gwennen na ringyrn ambar hen.

Boe naid bain gwannathar,

Boe cuil ban firitha.

Boe naer gwannathach, [...]

(In English)

You are not bound to loss and silence.
For you are not bound to the circles of this world.

All things must pass away,

All life is doomed to fade ...

Sorrowing you must go, [and yet you are not without hope].

Arwen's Song
By Liv Tyler

    With a sigh, you turn away
With a deepening heart, no more words to say
You will find that the world has changed forever

(And) the trees are now turning from green to gold
And the sun is now fading
I wish I could hold you closer
