I figured this Sting song could be Faramir about to reach out to Eowyn but afraid of rejection and showing his emotions.

"Be Still My Beating Heart"
By Sting (tiny changes by me)

Be still my beating heart
It would be better to be cool
It's not time to be open just yet
A lesson once learned is so hard to forget
Be still my beating heart
Or I'll be taken for a fool
It's not healthy to run at this pace
The blood runs so red to my face
I've been to every single book I know
To soothe the thoughts that plague me so

I sink like a stone that's been thrown in the ocean
My logic has drowned in a sea of emotion
Stop before you start
Be still my beating heart

Restore my broken dreams
Shattered like a falling glass
I'm not ready to be broken just yet
A lesson once learned is so hard to forget

Be still my beating heart
You must learn to stand your ground
It's not healthy to run at this pace
The blood runs so red to my face
I've been to every single book I know
To soothe the thoughts that plague me so

Stop before you start
Be still my beating heart

Never to be wrong
Never to make promises that break
It's like singing in the wind
Or writing on the surface of a lake
And she wriggle like a fish caught on dry land
And she struggles to avoid any help at hand

I sink like a stone that's been thrown in the ocean
My logic has drowned in a sea of emotion
Stop before you start
Be still my beating heart



The Long and Winding Road
(Beatles, changes by me)

The long and winding road that leads to my door,
has disappeared, I’ll see that smial nevermore
It always led me there, led me to my door.
The dark and firey night I tossed the ring away,
Has left a pool of tears crying for the day.
I must go from here, let me know the way.
Many times I’ve been alone and many times I’ve cried,
Anyway you’ll never know the many ways I’ve tried, but
I'll never return to the long and winding road,
I left you standing there a long, long time ago.
I've been waiting here, for you in Valinor.
Da da, da da –



I'll Sail Away
Artist: Alison Krauss and Gillian Welch
(Song: I'll Fly Away Lyrics)

Since that dark morning my life was o'er,
I'll sail away;
To a home on Valinor's sweet shore,
I'll sail away (I'll fly away).

[Chorus]
I'll sail away, Oh Glory
I'll sail away; (in the morning)
When I die, Hallelujah, by and by,
I'll sail away (I'll sail away).

When the shadows of this life have gone,
I'll sail away;
Like sunlight on the clear, green water,
I'll sail away (I'll sail away)

[Chorus]
I'll sail away, Oh Glory
I'll sail away; (in the morning)
When I die, Hallelujah, by and by,
I'll sail away (I'll sail away).

Just a few more weary days and then,
I'll sail away;
To a land where healing may begin,
I'll sail away (I'll sail away)

[Chorus]
I'll sail away, Oh Glory
I'll sail away; (in the morning)
When I die, Hallelujah, by and by,
I'll sail away (I'll sail away).



Whose hand held you last night?

(Where did you sleep last night?)
Original by Ledbelly I chose the Nirvana version for the inhuman cry at the end (It wasn't listed in the lyric, imagine it)


My ring, my ring, don't lie to me
Tell me whose hand held you last night

In the mines, in the mines
Our black heart don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My ring, my ring, where did you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows

In the mines, in the mines
Our black heart don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Your Isludur, was a king and a man
Many a mile from here
His ring was found in a fishing kreel
But his body never was found

My ring, my ring, don't lie to me
Tell me whose hand held you last night

In the mines, in the mines
Our black heart don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My ring, my ring, where did you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows

In the mines, in the mines
Our black heart don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My ring, my ring, don't lie to me
Tell me whose hand held you last night

In the mines, in the mines
Our black heart don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My ring, my ring, where did you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows

In the mines, in the mines
Our black heart don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

 


Bag End Lane

(Penny Lane by John Lennon, Paul McCartney)
Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

In Bag End Lane there are hobbits sharing food and laughs
With all the neighbors they've had the pleasure to know
And all the people that come and go
Stop and say hello

On the corner Lotho Baggins looks with jealousy
The little children laugh at him behind his back
And that Lotho never wears a mack
In the pouring rain, very strange

Bag End Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue Hobbiton skies
I sit, and meanwhile back

In Bag End Lane there is a wizard with some fireworks
People say they are the best they've ever seen
He likes to watch the children play on fields of gree
It's a happy scene

Bag End Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A four of fish and finger pies
In summer, meanwhile back

Behind the smial nestled snugly underhill
Sam Gamgee is planting poppies bright today
He's at work but he feels that he's at play i
He is everyday

In Bag End lane the barber shaves another customer
We see that Lotho sitting waiting for a trim
And then the wizard rushes in
From the pouring rain, very strange

Bag End lane is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue Hobbiton skies
I sit, and meanwhile back
Bag End lane is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue Hobbiton skies
Bag End Lane



Got To Go Back
(tune by Van Morrison)

When I was a young boy
Back in Hobbiton
I used to gaze out
My uncle's window and dream
And then go home and listen to him sing
"I believe to my soul" after school,
Oh that love that was within me
You know it carried me through
Well it lifted me up and it filled me
Meditation contemplation too

Chorus:
Oh we've got to go back
Got to go back
Got to go back
Got to go back
For the healing go on with the dreaming

Well there's people in the street
And the summer's almost here
We've got to go outside in the fresh air
And breathe while it's still clear
Breathe it in all the way down
To your stomach too
And breathe it out with a radiance
into the nightime air

We've got to go back etc. etc...

Got my ticket now to Valinor
Well I guess I've been marking time
I feel like I'm living in another country
That operates along entirely different lines
Keep me away from gold rings or dark lords
Don't play anything sentimental it'll make me cry
I've got to go back my friend
Is there really any need to ask why

We've got to go back etc. etc...

This one could be Faramir wooing Eowyn

The Healing Hall
(aka Raglan Rd: words by Patrick Kavanagh, arranged by Van Morrison/Paddy Moloney apologies to all and J.R.R.T.)

In the healing hall on an cold, dark day,
I saw her first and knew
That her gold hair would weave a snare
That I may one day rue.
I saw the danger, yet I walked
Along the enchanted way
And I said let grief be a falling leaf
At the dawning of the day.

In Minas Tirith I remember,
We walked lightly along the ledge
Of a tall stone wall where we could see
The worst of battles waged.
The Queen of Hearts still baking tarts
And I not making hay,
Well I loved too much; by such and such
Is happiness thrown away.

I gave her the gifts of the mind.
I gave her the secret sign
That's known to all the artists who have
Known true Gods of Sound and Time.
With word and tint I did not stint.
I gave her reams of poems to say
With her own gold hair and her own name there
Like the sun over fields of May.

On a quiet street where old ghosts meet,
I see her walking now away from me,
So hurriedly. My reason must allow,
For I have wooed, not as I should
A creature made of clay.
When the angel woos the clay, he'll lose
His wings at the dawn of the day.



The Steward

(aka "The Psychic" by the Crash Test Dummies, changes by me)

He knows the future like the back of his hand
He knows your past like the lay of the land
The first time He met me He saw right through me
A swirling orb clasped in his hand - and he said:

All the ills that have come to pass
And all the ills that shall be
I see here right before me

He said his visions were a bane in his life
He could not control them, they kept him up nights
I know what you're thinking, I haven't been drinking
He knew things that cut like a knife - and he said:

All the ills that have come to pass
And all the ills that shall be
I see here right before me

Will there be volcanoes and invasions in waves?
Can he see back to Numenorian days?
How can he foresee and is it true what he sees and
Can he see me dying in his mind's eye?

What does he think when he fortells orc armies?
Would he keep it a secret if death stood before me?
What could that orb hold, where is his foothold?
Can he escape what he sees? And he said:

All the ills that have come to pass
And all the ills that shall be
I see here right before me
I see here before me



Let Me Fall
(From Cirque De Soleil)

Let me fall
Let me die
There's a moment when fear
And pain must subside

Someone I am
Is tired of this burden
My task is over
The One has been undone
Don't save me

So let me fall
If I must fall
I didn't heed your warnings
I wouldn't hear them

Let me fall
If I fall
Though the bright sun may
Or may not rise

I would let go freely
Holding on to no one
You can hold me only
If you too will fall
Away from all this
Useless fear and pain

Someone I am
Is tired of this burden
My task is over
The One has been undone
Don't save me

So let me fall
If I must fall
I won't heed your warnings
I won't hear

Let me fall
If I fall
There's no reason
For me there's no hope
No perfect moment
Just let me fall




The Stoor
(aka the Moth by Aimee Mann)

The Stoor don't care when he sees the ring
To the Stoor that ring's a precious thing
and once he's seen it he can't go back, and
holds it tight as his hands burn black
no the Stoor don't care when he sees the ring
no the Stoor don't care when he sees the ring
the Stoor don't care if the ring is bad
If you take it from him he'll get real mad
and nothing fuels a good flirtation
like need and anger and desperation
no the Stoor don't care if the ring is bad
no the Stoor don't care if the ring is bad
So come on let's go ready or not
cuz there's a ring I know more evil than not
that the fire bright and so thoroughly hot
melts away
the Stoor don't care if it burns him low
cuz Stoor believes in an afterglow
and rings are never gone completely
all you really need is some gold so neat
no, the Stoor don't care if it brings him low
no, the moth don't care if it brings him low
So come on let's go ready or not
cuz there's a ring I know more evil than not
that the fire bright and so thoroughly hot
melts away



Crawling Up The Mountain
(aka Walking Down The Hill by Travis, changes by me)

Crawling up the mountain today
I had a thought all to myself
As I contemplated the firey way

I understand it all, it must be unmade
I don't know how I got here
But I'm holding on for the crash

Pull myself out of this swoon
I know I'll never go home but
It shines deep in my mind's eye
We must see it done, we've got it done
I think I know what I have to do
Sooner or later we die

We're apart, go to pieces
While I fall into the deep

Look into my heart, oh Samwise
Don't become a part of the past
You can be a part of the key

Don't turn away, don't run away
Don't leave me hanging by a thread
Shine your loyal love down on me

I am going so say goobye, make your peace
Wasting time is all you need

Crawling up this mountain today
I had a thought it was my own
The Sun obscured by clouds and no shining ray
Or shall I be or shall I not be
I don't know I just don't
Feel like it today
