In Dreams

In Dreams is a song sung in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring during the track The Breaking Of The Fellowship composed by Howard Shore and Fran Walsh, and sung by Edward Ross. The tune bears a remarkable resemblance to the traditional hymn "This is my Father's world", and the opening musical phrase is identical. The tune is often played as a "Hobbit" or "Shire" theme throughout the film.

[edit] Lyrics

When the cold of Winter comes
Starless night will cover day
In the veiling of the sun
We will walk in bitter rain

But in dreams
I can hear your name
And in dreams
We will meet again

When the seas and mountains fall
And we come, to end of days
In the dark I hear a call
Calling me there
I will go there
And back again
