Lord Of The Rings – May It Be lyrics

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh, how far you are from home

Mornië utúlië
Believe and you will find your way
Mornië alantië
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadows call
Will fly away
May it be your journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornië utúlië
Believe and you will find your way
Mornië alantië
A promise lives within you now

A promise lives within you now

    The first stanza of this song says, "May it be the evening star/ shines down upon you". Starlight is very important to the elves in the Lord of the Rings. Therefore this song is saying that the subject has significant light in them. Next it says, "May it be when darkness falls/ Your heart will be true/ You walk a lonely road/ Oh, how far you are from home". If this song is directed towards Frodo, it is saying that despite the dark influence of the ring, he remains true to his mission. He walks a lonely road, because he cannot share his troubles with his friends. The next stanza focuses on Frodo's promise. He has no idea how to get to his destination (Mordor), but feels obligated to complete his quest and therefore fulfill his promise.
