“Lo hobbit”: la canzone conclusiva.

Questo “The last goodbye” di Billy Boyd non ha certo la potenza emotiva di “Into the west” di Annie Lenox, ma il giusto punto di nostalgia si e, a mio avviso, è fors’anche fin troppo per concludere la trilogia cinematografica che dovrebbe essere tratta da “Lo hobbit”.

“The last goodbye”: testo originale

‘The Last Goodbye’ by Billy Boyd

I saw the light fade from the sky
On the wind I heard a sigh
As the snowflakes covered
My fallen brothers
I will say this last goodbye

Night is now falling
So ends this day
The road is now calling
And I must away

Over hill and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down to the sea

Under cloud beneath the stars
Over snow and winter’s morn
I turn at last to paths that lead home

And though where the road then takes me, I cannot tell
We came all this way but now comes the day
To bid you farewell

Many places I have been
Many sorrows I have seen
But I don’t regret nor will I forget
All who took that road with me

Night is now falling
So ends this day
The road is now calling
And I must away

Over hill and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down to the sea

To these memories I will hold
With your blessing I will go
To turn at last to paths that lead home

And though where the road then takes me, I cannot tell
We came all this way but now comes the day
To bid you farewell
