Anduin the River Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Intro (1:35)
2. Houses of Healing (7:12)
Deep within the defense wall
Down in the town of Minas Thirith
I am looking forward
To find the houses of the healing

This is the city which helps when you cry out
These are the people with the healing hands
This is the city which helps when you cry out
These are the people with the healing hands

When I hear the silent voices
I can feel the mystical hands
When I hear the silent voices
I can feel the hands
Yes the hands
Yes the hands

In a dark room in the night
Silent in my mind
Look around and you will find, will find
The house of the healing

This is the city which helps when you cry out
These are the people with the healing hands
This is the city which helps when you cry out
These are the people with the healing hands

When I hear the silent voices
I can feel the mystical hands
When I hear the silent voices
I can feel the hands
Yes the hands
Yes the hands

This is the city which helps when you cry out
These are the people with the healing hands
This is the city which helps when you cry out
These are the people with the healing hands

When I hear the silent voices
I can feel the mystical hands
When I hear the silent voices
I can feel the hands
Yes the hands
Yes the hands
3. Beneath the Hills (6:06)
You can see the sign in the sky, where the eagles fly away
We're lost in the mountains, far away from home
Snow blocked my way, we must turn back now
Listen what the sagas say, through the gates of Erebor

Back to a hole, which the Gods forgot
Back to a neverland, which the Gods forgot

This is our only chance to take us to the exit
This is our only chance to take us to the exit

I will go beneath the hills
I will go when the enemy comes
I will go beneath the hills
I will go when the enemy comes

In the gates of Erebor are so dark, so dark and cold
Take us to the halls of the dwarfs, to the king of the dwarfs
We're the grey company, and the great old wizard
Take us to the lands of the free, yes, the lands of the free

Back to a hole, which the Gods forgot
Back to a neverland, which the Gods forgot

This is our only chance to take us to the exit
This is our only chance to take us to the exit

I will go beneath the hills
I will go when the enemy comes
I will go beneath the hills
I will go when the enemy comes

In the gates of Erebor are so dark, so dark and cold
Take us to the halls of the dwarfs, to the king of the dwarfs
We're the grey company, and the great old wizard
Take us to the lands of the free, yes, the lands of the free

Back to a hole, which the Gods forgot
Back to a neverland, which the Gods forgot

This is our only chance to take us to the exit
This is our only chance to take us to the exit

I will go beneath the hills
I will go when the enemy comes
I will go beneath the hills
I will go when the enemy comes
4. Princess of the Trees (3:39)
Born in a house of stone, top on this street
Lives a girl so beautiful, can't she feel my need
Galadriel was the name, the rose
She has brown hair so long
She fights with her heart, so wonderful
Her will is so strong

Fly little dragon and take me away
Far away to the church made of trees
Fly little dragon and take me away
Far away to the church made of trees

The breeze is so fine when you smile
In your eyes one fire
Your heart is so warm, you don't know my love
Accept my desire
I want you everytime and your lovely smile
Your healing hands are gently fine, please take my heart and smile

Fly little dragon and take me away
Far away to the church made of trees
Fly little dragon and take me away
Far away to the church made of trees

Fly little dragon and take me away
Far away to the church made of trees
Fly little dragon and take me away
Far away to the church made of trees
5. Anduin the River (6:13)
Pull harder, pull faster... we're rowing on the river
We search the riverside for the escape route in the night
This is no time to turn back now

Pull harder, pull faster... we're rowing on the river
We search the riverside for the escape route in the night
This is no time to turn back now
This is no time to turn back now

Far away from me, I can see the Rauros-falls behind this point
This is the only way to take us to the king, to the king of Gondor
Far away from me, I can see the Rauros-falls behind this point
This is the only way to take us to the king, to the king of Gondor

Deep waters, dark silent follow us so dangerous
Deep waters, dark silent follow us so dangerous
The great old river close to the Rauros-fall
The good old river, whose wingless blind fish call

A whispering in the night, a small light far away - This is Boromirs death
You will forget us never, in dreams we are together and fly away to a place of...
A whispering in the night, a small light far away - This is Boromirs death
You will forget us never, in dreams we are together and fly away to a place of...

Deep waters, dark silent follow us so dangerous
Deep waters, dark silent follow us so dangerous
The great old river close to the Rauros-fall
The good old river, whose wingless blind fish call

omni spiritus sanctus
omni spiritus

Deep waters, dark silent follow us so dangerous
Deep waters, dark silent follow us so dangerous
The great old river close to the Rauros-fall
The good old river, whose wingless blind fish call
6. Maiden in Forbidden Garden (8:05)
Close your eyes and walk around
Close to the magic dreams
Far away the sign of the bells and the fog of the fear
Leaves whispering in the wind, shadows show me the way
Listen what the darkness says, when you try to run away

This is the rose of the maiden in the forbidden garden
These are the secrets of her mind
This is the rose of the maiden in the forbidden garden
These are the secrets of her mind

I'm lost behind the bed of roses
I'm lost behind the bed of roses
I'm lost behind the bed of roses
I'm lost behind the bed of roses

Look around, go and find the bed of roses in the darkness
Step inside and take one for your secret garden, secret garden

This is the rose of the maiden in the forbidden garden
These are the secrets of her mind
This is the rose of the maiden in the forbidden garden
These are the secrets of her mind

I'm lost behind the bed of roses
I'm lost behind the bed of roses
I'm lost behind the bed of roses
I'm lost behind the bed of roses

I am a man, sacred only in this garden, in this garden
You're the maiden and left your secrets in this garden, in this garden

This is the rose of the maiden in the forbidden garden
These are the secrets of her mind
This is the rose of the maiden in the forbidden garden
These are the secrets of her mind

I'm lost behind the bed of roses
I'm lost behind the bed of roses
I'm lost behind the bed of roses
I'm lost behind the bed of roses

This is the rose of the maiden in the forbidden garden
These are the secrets of her mind
This is the rose of the maiden in the forbidden garden
These are the secrets of her mind
7. Mordor Speaks (6:59)
Silent in this land
Around the dark shadows
Footsteps deep in the sand
Brown are the meadows
Is this the invasion of the dark lords hand
Or the regeneration of the dark evil stand

I am your blood, I am your enemy before I die
Will fight with my sword, will fight to Sauron the dark lord
I am your blood, I am your enemy before I die
Will fight with my sword, will fight to Sauron the dark lord

The end of the ways are in Mordor
I hear the death voice into the night
The end of the ways are in Mordor
I hear the death voice into the night

Sam by my side, and the crows are black on this day
My good old friend, we'll flight side by side
We search the hills of faith for the grave of the lost ring
These are the last days, look backward and sing

I am your blood, I am your enemy before I die
Will fight with my sword, will fight to Sauron the dark lord
I am your blood, I am your enemy before I die
Will fight with my sword, will fight to Sauron the dark lord

The end of the ways are in Mordor
I hear the death voice into the night
The end of the ways are in Mordor
I hear the death voice into the night

The end of the ways are in Mordor
I hear the death voice into the night
The end of the ways are in Mordor
I hear the death voice into the night
The end of the ways are in Mordor, Mordor, Mor- Mor-dor
I hear the death voice into the night
The end of the ways are in Mordor
I hear the death voice into the night
8. In the Highlands (6:09)
In the dales of Scotland I walked in the spring
[...] the colors and scents, [...] the colors and scents
And I said that was good, I wandered in the summer
And I thought that was the best

To the beeches of the highlands I came in the autumn
These are the tales of a silent song
The gold and the red, the whispering of the leaves
To the beeches of the highlands I came in the autumn
Tales of the tales of a silent song
The gold and the red, the whispering of the leaves

Far away, far away, far away, far away into the highlands
Far away, far away, far away, far away, far away into the highlands

My rose went up and sang in the sky
And now all these lie back in my mind
And I walked and sang in the highlands
My rose went up and sang in the sky
And now all these lie back in my mind
And I walked and sang in the highlands

Yes, this is my song of a land in the north, a never, a neverending, a neverending, neverending story
Yes, this is my song of a land in the north, far away from home, far away, far away from home

Far away, far away, far away, far away into the highlands
Far away, far away, far away, far away, far away into the highlands

Far away, far away, far away in the highlands
Far away, far away, far away in the highlands
Far away, far away, far away, far away, far away in the highlands
Far away, far away, far away, far away, far away into the highlands
9. Gwaihir - The Name of a Bird (6:14)
The wind, we have broken him
We're lost in this time
Ride with the clouds and take us away
The wind, we have broken him
We're lost in this time
Ride with the clouds and take us away

This is the name of a great old eagle
We're the servants of a godly bird
This is the name of a great old eagle
We're the servants of a godly bird

And I want to ride on your back, away
Far away where the sun will shine
And I want to ride on your back, away
Far away where the sun will shine

So I, I close my eyes, open my mind
And fly away out here
So I, I close my eyes, open my mind
And fly away out here

Gwaihir, the name of this bird
Show me the way, I want to carry on
Gwaihir, the name of this bird
Show me the way, I want to carry on

Clouds, rain and water will never stop me, now
We must fly over fear and leafy crowns
Clouds, rain and water will never stop me, now
We must fly over fear and leafy crowns

This is the name of a great old eagle
We're the servants of a godly bird
This is the name of a great old eagle
We're the servants of a godly bird

And I want to ride on your back, away
Far away where the sun will shine
And I want to ride on your back, away
Far away where the sun will shine

So I, I close my eyes, open my mind
And fly away out here
So I, I close my eyes, open my mind
And fly away out here

Gwaihir, the name of this bird
Show me the way, I want to carry on
Gwaihir, the name of this bird
Show me the way, I want to carry on

And I want to ride on your back, away
Far away where the sun will shine
And I want to ride on your back, away
Far away where the sun will shine

So I, I close my eyes, open my mind
And fly away out here
So I, I close my eyes, open my mind
And fly away out here

Gwaihir, the name of this bird
Show me the way, I want to carry on
Gwaihir, the name of this bird
Show me the way, I want to carry on
10. Back Into the Deepest Night / Outro (12:01)
Learn now the lore of a living law, the four
Victory, death and glory and last the war
Learn now the lore of a living law, the four
Victory, death and glory and last the war

Smog in the trees, I can't find the way out
Bag-pipers play a song, for outlaws only one

Warlords, knights and fighters follow me with pain
Thunders, clouds and riders, through the grey old rain
I am the king of this battlefield, I am the lord of war
I am the king of this battlefield, I am the lord of war

Silent in the dark, nearby by us, 5000 side by side
Waiting in the night, we miss the sky, we're waiting for the fight
Silent in the dark, nearby by us, 5000 side by side
Waiting in the night, we miss the sky, we're waiting for the fight

Warlords, knights and fighters follow me with pain
Thunders, clouds and riders, through the grey old rain
I am the king of this battlefield, I am the lord of war
I am the king of this battlefield, I am the lord of war

Silent in the dark, nearby by us, 5000 side by side
Waiting in the night, we miss the sky, we're waiting for the fight
Silent in the dark, nearby by us, 5000 side by side
Waiting in the night, we miss the sky, we're waiting for the fight

Dark, night, sky, light
Darker than a hole, waiting in the night
Higher than the sky, back into the light
Darker than a hole, waiting in the night
Higher than the sky, back into the light

Back in the deepest night, waiting for the fight
Back in the deepest night, waiting for the fight

Back in the deepest night, waiting for the fight
Back in the deepest night, waiting for the fight
Back in the deepest night, waiting for the fight
Back in the deepest night, waiting for the fight
