Song Of The Lonely Mountain

Lyricist: Neil Finn   Composer: Howard Shore


Far over the Misty Mountains rise
Lead us standing upon the height
What was before, we see once more
Is our kingdom a distant light

Fiery mountain beneath the moon
The words unspoken, we'll be there soon
For home a song that echoes on
And all who find us will know the tune


Some folk we never forget, Some kind we never forgive
Haven't seen the back of us yet, We'll fight as long as we live
All eyes on the hidden door, To the Lonely Mountain core
We'll ride in the gathering storm, Until we get our long-forgotten gold


We lay under the Misty Mountains cold
In slumbers deep and dreams of gold
We must awake, our lives to make
And in the darkness a torch we hold

From long ago when lanterns burned
Until this day our hearts have yearned
Her fate unknown the Arkenstone
What was stolen must be returned


We must awake and make the day
To find a song for heart and soul


Some folk we never forget, Some kind we never forgive
Haven't seen the end of it yet, We'll fight as long as we live
All eyes on the hidden door, To the Lonely Mountain core
We'll ride in the gathering storm, Until we get our long-forgotten gold

Far away from Misty Mountains cold
