INTO THE WEST
 
lyrics and music by FRAN WALSH, HOWARD SHORE, and ANNIE LENNOX
 
 
 
Lay down
 
Lay down
your sweet and weary head.
+
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling,
+
Night is falling
you've come to journey's end.
+
You've come to journey's end
   
Sleep now,
+
Sleep now
'nd dream of the ones who came before.
+
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling,
+
They are calling
from across a distant shore.
+
From across a distant shore
   
 
Why do you weep?
 
Why do you weep?
 
What are these tears upon your face?
 
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see,
+
Soon you will see
all of your fears will pass away.
+
All of your fears will pass away
   
Safe in my arms;
+
Safe in my arms
you're only sleeping
+
You're only sleeping
   
What can you see,
+
What can you see
on the horizon?
+
On the horizon?
 
Why do the white gulls call?
 
Why do the white gulls call?
   
Across the sea,
+
Across the sea
a pale moon rises.
+
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home.
+
The ships have come
  +
To carry you home
   
And all will turn,
+
And all will turn
to silver glass.
+
To silver glass
A light on the water;
+
A light on the water
all souls pass.
+
All souls pass
   
Hope fades,
+
Hope fades
into the world of night.
+
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling,
+
Through shadows falling
out of memory and time.
+
Out of memory and time
   
Don't say,
+
Don't say
"We have come now to the end.".
+
"We have come now to the end"
White shores are calling,
+
White shores are calling
you and I will meet again.
+
You and I will meet again
   
And you'll be here in my arms,
+
And you'll be here in my arms
Just sleeping.
+
Just sleeping
   
What can you see,
+
What can you see
on the horizon?
+
On the horizon?
 
Why do the white gulls call?
 
Why do the white gulls call?
   
Across the sea,
+
Across the sea
a pale moon rises.
+
A pale moon rises
The ships have come,
+
The ships have come
to carry you home.
+
To carry you home
   
And all will turn,
+
And all will turn
to silver glass.
+
To silver glass
A light on the water,
+
A light on the water
grey ships pass,
+
Grey ships pass
into the West.
+
Into the West

This song is by Howard Shore and appearson the album The Lord Of The Rings - The Return Of The King - The Complete Recordings (2007).

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

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

Why do you weep?
What are these 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
