Annie Lennox - Into the West (The Return of the King)


4 CD - 07.  DAYS OF THE RING
Featuring Annie Lennox performing “Into the West”

Strings stir up a final reading of the Journey Back Again, until trickling guitar instigates a new accompaniment line. Annie Lennox sings “into the west,” the vocal rendition of the grey havens theme. Somewhere, upon the outer waters of middle-earth, Frodo’s journey is ending… and just beginning.

After a suite of musical highlights from The Return of the King, the orchestra introduces a new line, a series of lilting arpeggios climbing high over lapping chords. This is Shore’s nod to Richard wagner’s Götterdämmerung, the final opera in his Der Ring des Nibelungen, another Ring myth.

 "Into the West" (The Return of the King) performed by Annie Lennox: won the Academy Award for Best Song in 2004.


Into the West
Words and music by Fran walsh, howard Shore, Annie Lennox

 Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve 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 arms
Just sleeping

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West
