Against all Orcs

Bei diesem Lied hatte ich zunächst die Idee für den Titel - und habe danach zunächst längere Zeit das Web durchsucht. Das ist doch so nahe liegend, , dass es bestimmt schon jemand anderes gemacht hat! Da ich aber nichts fand, habe ich es selbst geschrieben.

Wir befinden uns am Rand von Mordor, zwei Hobbits sind am Ende ihrer Kräfte, und sie fragen sich, wie sie die letzte Etappe ihrer Reise schaffen sollen.

Against all Orcs
Original: Against All Odds (Phil Collins)
Text: Daniela Festi (2012)

Frodo: Why can’t we just leave and walk away?
Just go and leave without a trace?
When the Dark is taking every breath from me, ooh
He’s the only one who really knows me at all

How can I just keep on walking here
When is Sauron’s Eye all I see
Cause my soul is dark and full of pain 
Why did Gandalf said to me:
“You’re the only one who can bear the ring at all”?

So take a look at me now, 
'cause there's just an empty space 
and there's nothing left here to remind me 
Just the memories of this race
Take a look at me now, 
'cause there's just an empty space
Bringing back the ring is against all orcs 
and that is what I’ve got to face

Sam: I wish I could just make a turn-around 
Turn around and go back home 
There's so much I miss, I barely stand 
thinking ‘bout the Shire. 
But you’re the one who can bear the ring at all.

So take a look at me now, 'cause I am no empty space 
And I’m still left here to remind you 
Of the purpose of this race.
Take a look at me now, 'cause I am still standing here
Going on with you is all I can do, so let’s go to the final race. 
Take a good look at me now, 'cause we are still standing here. 
Bringing back the ring is against all orcs 
and that is what we’ve got to face. 

Just take a look at me now.
