Eowyn's Song - A cry from her heart.

Marching into battle, let me die
Life is not worth living-my lost love
By both my parents' beds did I cry
I am a shieldmaiden-no tender dove.

Disguised in a helm and armor
Life is not worth living-my lost love
Riding with the host to Gondor
I am a shieldmaiden-no tender dove.

Life holds no worth for me-it is bleak
Life is not worth living-my lost love
Nay, not life but death also I seek
I am a shieldmaiden-no tender dove.

In my youth I saw my mother wither
Life is not worth living-my lost love
Where my father went-she went thither
I am a shieldmaiden-no tender dove.

Pain is all I've ever known, and work
Life is not worth living-my lost love
But I am strong and do not shirk
I am a shieldmaiden-no tender dove

Once I believed I could live a worthless life
Life is not worth living-my lost love
But I will not live as a useless wife
I am a shieldmaiden-no tender dove.

Nay-Faramir, gentle lord, my healer
Life is worth the living-I've found love
I will be a grower-no longer am I a killer
I will not be a shieldmaiden-I have a dove.
