Haunting: Winter in my heart


Winter in my heart - VAST 🎢

I only found out just now that this song has been used as a theme song for the hit series Game of Thrones, which I have not seen myself. It is a fitting lyric I guess, with the 'Winter-is-coming-theme' announcing the series.
I really love a couple of songs by VAST, like Touched from the first album, but this song is my favorite by far. For me it is a touching but haunting song.

Lyrics:

I need a summer but the summer's come and gone
I need a summer but it's winter in my heart
It's all the same fucked up game you play with me
I need to hold you but you're never coming back

I can't get, any lower
I can't find all the pieces of my broken life

I need a summer but the summer's come and gone
I need a summer like a winter in my heart

I can't get, any lower
I can't find all the pieces of my broken life

But I try, I still try
I still try

and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night

Sigh: The last goodbye

The last goodbye - Billy Boyd 🎢



This is the song that concludes the trilogy of The Hobbit, filmed by Peter Jackson. To me it is even more than that. It is the perfect goodbye to both The Lord of the Rings as well as The Hobbit. What a magnificent journey the actors, producers and all others on the set have taken in participating in filming the mighty fantasy world created by Tolkien. It truly must have been a bit sad having to say goodbye to their characters, the world they were creating and to each-other. This was an epic undertaking and one I can imagine they will never forget.


Lyrics:

I saw the light fade from the sky
On the wind I hear a sigh
As the snowflakes cover my fallen brothers
I will say this last goodbye

Night is now falling
So end this day
The road is now calling
And I must away
Over hill and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down to the sea

Under cloud, beneath the stars
Over snow one winter's morn
I turn at last on paths that lea…
