Goodbye youth, and hello sorrow,
Who knows where we'll be tomorrow,
All we know and all well say,
Is we get older every day…
Springtime of the heart to winter,
Rain or shine or come what may…
Where we stand alone tomorrow,
Wasn't where we stood today…

When we are young the world is bright,
Dragons and Nazgul hunt at night,
And all the stories that we're told, burn white hot as a sun of gold…
How we love the fun and laughter,
Pray for happily ever after,
And want the story to go on,
When the last page is done…

When we are young…

We soar between the fell-beasts as they dive before the Eye!
We ride with Rohan to the field, we hear the eagles cry!
We walk beside the Fellowship, are crowned beside the king…
We hear the gulls that call the elves, and sing the song they sing!

And they sing..!
Goodbye youth, and hello sorrow,
Who knows where we'll be tomorrow,
All we know and all well say,
Is we get older every day…
Springtime of the heart to winter,
Rain or shine or come what may…
Where we stand alone tomorrow,
Wasn't where we stood today…

Goodbye stories that I treasured,
Goodbye fields where late I rested,
Goodbye Mordor's mount of fire,
The ships have sailed away….

…I have fought at Minis Tirith,
And all I have, to say…

…is keep the story in your heart,
And let what comes come, come what may!
But the stories, they are your second childhood…
And they can't, take that…
…away.

Return, return, the rings rebirth...
Will test the hearts of man on earth...
Return, return, into the fray, the Valar are calling...
Come away... sail away...
It is a time of magic things..!

Lord of the Rings!
