May It Be by Enya

What do you think?

‘May It Be’ was written for the 2001 movie Lord of the Rings:Fellowship of the Ring. According to the question answered on Quora, the song is a prayer “that when times get dark you stay strong and make it through. It’s stating that every day is a new dawn, let’s make it a good one this time, no matter what happened in the dark past. The ending line “a promise is within you now” shows the seed of hope waiting to be planted and to grow.” The song includes a few words from ‘Lord of the Rings’ author J.R.R Tolkien’s fictional elvish language Quenya.

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 (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornië alantië (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadow’s call
Will fly away
May it be you journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornië utúlië (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way

Mornië alantië (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

A promise lives within you now
