Again, this song has references to the Shire. But it also includes the theme of the Elves. The Hobbits are heading to see Gandalf and Bilbo set off on one last journey.

The Elves are going to go across the sea where they will remain forever in peace, happiness, and immortality. It is indeed a heaven on earth.

What Merry, Pippin, and Sam are not aware of is that Frodo will be leaving them as well. They become extremely distressed, but Frodo states that he was able to make the Shire a haven, but not for himself. He will go with the Elves and Bilbo to the Havens. It is actually quite an honor, few mortals receive the chance to go there.

The song is one of sadness. The Hobbits are losing dear friends in Gandalf and Frodo. It seems what they worked for is true. But Frodo tells them that they have much in store for them back at home, and indeed they do. They have their lives back in the Shire, and that is where their hearts remain.
