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 lead home
And though where the road then takes me
I cannot tell
We came all this way
But now comes the day
To bid you farewell

Many places I have been
Many sorrows I have seen
But I don't regret
Nor will I forget
All who took the road with me

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

To these memories I will hold
With your blessing I will go
I turn at last on paths that lead home
And though where the road then takes me
I cannot tell
We came all this way
But now comes the day
To bid you farewell

I bid you all a very fond farewell

mijn meisje, mijn lieve meisje
ik ben gebroken, maar voor jou ook blij

jij jaagt nu op spookmuisjes
en vangt vast spookvogeltjes

mijn meisje, mijn lieve meisje

in de poezenhemel woon je nu
voor altijd jong
voor altijd vrij

maar ach mijn meisje, mijn lieve meisje

ik mis je
ik mis je


je was bijna je hele leven
een heel groot deel van dat van mij

Ik vergeet soms

Ik vergeet soms
vergeet dat ik vergeet soms
en vergeet dan te denken
dat dat niet erg is
-meestal

Want soms vergeet ik
iets wat ik beter niet kon vergeten
iets waarvan het bijna zeker beter is
het te blijven weten

Dus poog ik steeds te blijven weten
dat wat ik beter niet kan vergeten
zodat ik zeker niet vergeet
datgene wat ik weet

Het is alleen zo jammer
dat mijn hoofd niet weet
hoe ik niet vergeet


Already his

erratic thoughts run wild
my brain pulsating with unruly life

death - so inviting
an idyllic image anchored in my mind
of secret glances & romantic dances

he awaits me
patiently
till last breath ~ soon

this life, this world
I won't miss

carve my name into stone
I am already gone
I am already his
