Into the West (theme from "The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King") Lyrics - Annie Lennox

Review The Song (8)



Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You have come to journey's end

Sleep now
Dream--of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across a distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are those 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

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

My BGM for doing art | Reviewer: Rizky | 6/28/2007

I thank to this song which always acompany me while doing art, inspired me so much. This is because this song as BGM in LOTR ROTK when some artwork of alan lee displayed in the end of the film.
And thank you to james cameroon, who inspired me much to view this world. Everybody know that this song was dedicated for you, you deserve it james, even you're not in this world anymore. May you have peace in heaven.

Into the Best | Reviewer: Z | 9/19/2006

Oh! this song! What a crowning glory to the end of ROTK and the trilogy.
'May it be' began the hopeful searching, and 'Into the West' closes it off with this longing for happy times gone past, old friends out of our reach, far away, things never being the same again and heaven where we will all meet again. Heaven bringing all these happy times again & in ways more beautiful. This song is truly outstanding.

Evocative | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/17/2006

Every so often I hear I song that truly makes me pause and instantly takes me somewhere. Into The West is such a song. When hearing it, the listener experiences such an intense longing - but I don't know what for. Perhaps for me its because I associate the song with the films somewhere in my subconcious, I don't know. Beautiful beautiful song, perfect vocals from Annie Lennox. I will love this song for the rest of my life, and it will always make me wish for something that I can't quite put my finger on.

Played it at my husband's funeral | Reviewer: Lynnie | 8/8/2006

We played this as the coffin left the chapel (the committal - I believe they call it). The words are beautiful and I still cry now when I hear this song. Annie Lennox was the perfect choice for this song. My husband died 18 months ago but this song will be with me for the rest of my life.

Annie Lennox's triumph | Reviewer: Paul Robins | 9/3/2004

"The Lord of the Rings; The Return of the King" is one of the greatest films ever made, but also one of the saddest. The film was beautifully acted and Annie Lennox performed "Into the West" wonderfully.
