New Day - A Song

Yet another song that's not overtly LotR but LotR in its inspiration. This one comes from Sam's quote at the end of The Two Towers, and a passage I wrote in a fanfic-in-progress of mine (coming soon to a Reading Room near you).

Darkness and danger blacken the sky
And we're afraid to know the end
Because it's impossible to say
It could be anything but bad
Nothing can turn around and be
The way it was before
So we shut our eyes, afraid to look and see
And hide because we can't take it anymore

But see, this shadow
It's always bound to pass
The Sun will shine through the rain
And the hovering clouds will part
See, this darkness
It isn't gonna last
And the Sun will be much clearer
For the clouds it's broken through
See, this cloudy night
Though maybe it looks black
Light remains beyond its reach
A new day will come again

Storm clouds rumble overhead
And they blot out the stars
Our hope has all but fled
And we wonder how we got this far
The good in life is hidden by the bad
And our victories overshadowed by our loss
For every triumph there's a painful fall
And we start to wonder if it's really worth the cost

But see, this shadow
It's always bound to pass
The Sun will shine through the rain
And the hovering clouds will part
See, this darkness
It isn't gonna last
And the Sun will be much clearer
For the clouds it's broken through
See, this cloudy night
Though maybe it looks black
Light remains beyond its reach
A new day will come again

We're afraid to raise our hopes
Lest they're stricken to painful death
We shun the highs, fearing the lows
And afraid we'll never see the light again
We're almost ready to turn back
But we cling to the promises
That though the sky's gone black
There's something brighter on the horizon

'Cause see, this shadow
It's always bound to pass
The Sun will shine through the rain
And the hovering clouds will part
See, this darkness
It isn't gonna last
And the Sun will be much clearer
For the clouds it's broken through
See, this cloudy night
Though maybe it looks black
Light remains beyond its reach
A new day will come again
