The Edge of Night

This song is by Billy Boyd and appears on the movie soundtrack The Lord Of The Rings The Return Of The King (2003) by Howard Shore.

Home is behind
The world ahead
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadow
To the edge of night
Until the stars are all alight

Mist and shadow
Cloud and shade
All shall fade
All shall... fade
