Use Well The Days - Annie Lennox
-From The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Limited Edition OST bonus DVD.

Round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I have passed them by
A day will come

I will take the hidden path that run
West of the moon and east of the sun
I'm glad that you are here with me
Here at the end of all things.

Night too shall be beautiful
And blessed and then its fear will pass
I must leave, must cross the sea
The love you gave is all i take with me

Use well the days
Use well the days
Turn your face to the green world
Use well the days

Seven stars and seven stones
And one White Tree from all the southern seas

Use well the days
Use well the days
Turn your face to the green world
Use well the days


Everytime I hear this song I want to tear. It's a bittersweet feeling. Because of the Minas Tirith 'photoshoot' (refer to previous post, There and Back Again) I decided to rewatch The Return of the King. I haven't gotten to the second disc yet, but everytime I watch this film, I am afraid of reaching the end. Because I know I will tear. It's very bittersweet.

I remember when I first caught FotR, I didn't exactly like the Caves of Moria scene, but after some time, when I rewatched, I realised that that was one of my favourite scenes, even if my favourite character does fall off the bridge. And the Ballad of Bilbo is simply fantastic and heart-pounding.

Then there is the song Merry and Pippin sang in the Green Dragon. ("Rain may fall and wind may blow But there still be many miles to go! Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain...") Absolutely love Pippin's last line, "There's a mug of beer inside this Took!" Merry and Pippin goodness. (: When Pippin leaves for Minas Tirith, Merry went, "He used to get into a lot of trouble, and I was always there to get him out of it. But now he's going away, just like Frodo and Sam!" Aragorn, "One thing I have learnt about hobbits - they are hardy." Merry, "FOOLhardy you mean - He's a Took!" Still more Merry and Pippin goodness. (: And I'd remember the behind-the-scenes where Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan were trying to see who end up with the better outfit (a.k.a. the Gondor one which Pippin got in the end!)

And not to forget the moments of playing the soundtrack and closing my eyes and letting the scenes run in my head.

*cough*cosplayingtimes*cough*

All the fun in collecting all the beautiful collectibles. But I've stopped quite some time ago. After all... I'm not as filthy rich as Macheath. Nor do I own Pemberley like Mr Darcy. And I would never even reach the society of Anne Elliot.

Not forgetting always hearing Legolas speak redundant lines in the movie ! (Can't remember one off the top of my head now.) Most of his good, impressive, informative, wise, and powerful lines have been cut off and put in the Extended Edition instead. x)

And now I have a friend who calls himself Strider but I absolutely cannot imagine him to be Strider. Bleah. And he never fails to remind me of my height. Hobbits are cute anyway :P It was amusing to hear his mates call him "Strider!" at CCA orientation though. Very amusing. xD

The times when I love my home sound+video system to bits, are when I watch this trilogy. I wish it never ended, but things do have to end some day. It was a beautiful end anyway. (:
