"Please, please forgive me

But I won't be home again." Faramir silently said to his father. His father's critisim at his incompetence stung Faramir's heart. He bowed to his father and left the throne room.

Maybe someday you'll look up

And barely conscious, you'll say to no one

Isn't something missing

As he changed into his armor, Faramir began to weep. "Father doesn't love me. He never did. He blames me for mother dying." Faramir's birth had been a hard one. His mother had died while giving birth to him. Not only that, but he remembered relatives remarking that he looked just like her. For all that, his father hated him.

You won't cry for my absence I know

You forgot me long ago

Am I that unimportant

Am I so insignificant

Isn't something missing

Isn't someone missing me

Faramir mounted his horse. He would leave The White City, and not look back.

"I am of no use to my father. I best die and ease my father's pain." Gandalf spoke to him as he rode toward the gates, but he wasn't paying much attention.

Even though I'm the sacrifice

You won't try for me, not now

Though I'd die to know you love me

I'm all alone

Isn't someone missing me

He rode into battle, not caring what his fate was. He only had one wish. To die!

Please, please forgive me

But I won't be home again

I know what you do to yourself

I breathe deep and cry out

Isn't something missing

He led the charge against the orcs, not for his father, but for Gondor and Boromir, the brother who loved him.

Even though I'm the sacrifice

You won't try for me, not now

Though I'd die to know you love me

I'm all alone

Isn't someone missing me

The orc's arrows pierced him. As he fell from his horse, Faramir smiled.

"Finally. I'll not cause anymore pain, sorrow, or trouble." The blood poured out of his body. His foot got caught in the stirrup, and his horse dragged him back to Gondor.

And if I bleed

I'll bleed

Knowing you don't care

And if I sleep just to dream of you

I'll wake without you there

As he was dragged back to Gondor, Gandalf's word's echoed.

"Your father loves you Faramir. He will remember it before the end."

"Will he?" Faramir wondered.

Even though I'm the sacrifice

You won't try for me, not now

Though I'd die to know you love me

I'm all alone

Isn't something missing

Isn't someone missing me
