28. Wizard

Author’s note:
Sung by Gandalf after Saruman’s death; based on “Angel,” by the Eurythmics.

*******

You put on this body like a shawl
So eagerly you came here
Walking tall
When did you fall?

And we all followed you
We all followed you
Like Tirion chasing
Arien in the heavens
(When did you fall?)

Well he’s gone out to great Eru
Back to where we came from
Heeding now that call...
Heeding now that call...
Needing now us all
’Cause it’s too late for
Your regrets
We’ll not forget

Wizard
Poor wizard
’Twas Men named you
Wizard...

He took his course
Without a qualm
He took his course
Without a single qualm
And no-one could tell him
How to act then

And we all followed you
We all followed you
Like Túrin hunting
After fiery Glaurung
(When did you fall?)

Well he’s gone out to
great Eru
Back to where we came from
Heeding now that call...
