Rain Like Tears - A Song

Arwen, as Aragorn leaves Imladris with the Fellowship. Okay, so it didn't rain...but let's just pretend it did. 'Kay?

I watch you take your final leave
I stand here silently losing you
You whisper your farewells beneath the trees
So finality becomes the aching truth
That fills me with this parting
It's another goodbye and you mean it this time
Still after all we've been through
Why can't you shed your defeatist views
And listen to mine?

And the rain like tears falls down upon me
For the miles that are taking you away
Oh the rain like tears weeping 'round me
I lose myself in this rain like tears

Oh the darkness that fills your tired soul
That you would release it to the light
I've been waiting years for you to let go
But you won't set yourself free without a fight
The distance of another goodbye
Raises another wall between you and I
And the questions without answers rear their heads
How long until you let me love you again?
What are you going to do with yourself now?

And the rain like tears falls down upon me
For the miles that are taking you away
Oh the rain like tears weeping 'round me
I lose myself in this rain like tears

Your endless searching's brought you nowhere
Your endless hiding has just let you down
You're waiting hopelessly for illumination
Can't you see it waits to be found?
All your running's made this distance
These walls that lie between us
I think it's time you gave up
Because this rain's not going to let up
Until you let go of yourself
And reach for something higher

Oh the rain like tears falls down upon me
For the miles that are taking you away
Oh the rain like tears weeping 'round me
I lose myself in this rain like tears
