•The Edge of Night
sung by Billy Boyd.

Home is behind. The world ahead.
And there are many paths to tread.
Thru shadow to the edge of night.
Until the stars are all alight.
Mist and shadows, cloud and shade.
All shall fade. All shall fade.


FOTR, Book 1, Chapter III, Three is Company

These lyrics are from a song in FOTR with the first line "Upon the Hearth the Fire is Red." Bilbo had written the words to an old tune and taught it to Frodo. It speaks of the comforts of home that are enticing... but adventure more so. In the end, the traveler heads home and leaves behind the adventure.

Home is behind, the world ahead,
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night,
Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead,
We'll wander back to home and bed.
Mist and twilight, cloud and shade,
Away shall fade! Away shall fade!
Fire and lamp, and meat and bread,
And to bed! And then to bed! (FOTR, Book 1, Chapter III, Three is Company)
