Those Who Cannot Change Their Minds, Cannot Change Anything

Official music video of Gollum's Song, the end credits song from The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers, sung by Emiliana Torrini. Lyrics by Fran Walsh, music by Howard Shore.

Gollum/NSIL's Song
Where once was light
Now darkness falls
Where once was love
Love is no more
Don't say goodbye
Don't say I didn't try

These tears we cry
Are falling rain
For all the lies you told us
The hurt, the blame...
And we will weep to be so alone
We are lost
We can never go home

So in the end
I'll be what I will be
No loyal friend
Was ever there for me

Now we say goodbye
We say you didn't try

These tears you cry
Have come too late
Take back the lies
The hurt, the blame...

And you will weep
When you face the end alone
You are lost
You can never go home
You are lost
You can never go home

  1. Are you familiar with the words to old Led Zeppelin songs. They are chock full of references to Lord of the Rings.
    Like Ramble on.
    Was in the darkest depths of Mordor
    I met a girl so fair
    But gollum the evil one
    crept up and slipped away with her
    This doesn't have much to do with your post, but I thought I would point that out. I read the books in the late 70's and kept finding all these references that had never made any sense before.

    1. I was actually aware of that, my friend. I thought about posting those lyrics here, or otherwise including them in one of my posts about NSIL. ;)
