The Lyrics

I am not a patient person by nature...and so I've waited and waited and waited for the Return of the King to come out...and it was driving me crazy...but now that it's been released and I've seen it...it's like I'm going through anticipation withdrawal. I'm pretty pathetic...I know. But oh well...I'll find something else to anticipate...I always do...
Now the war has been won
Sauron's power is gone
Try to catch my tears in a popcorn bag
Though the battle was great
Many good lives were lost
Never thought I'd find the end of the road
To be so hard to take

Hey now, hey now
Can't believe it's over
Hey now, hey now
Now my waiting's through
I've come, I've come
So used to suspense building
Not sure what I should do

As I walked to my car
Still replaying the scenes
My obsession has taught me a good lesson
It haunts my dreams
In the paper today
Read the four-star review
But I turned it over 'cause I'm sad it's through

Hey now, hey now
Can't believe it's over
Hey now, hey now
Now my waiting's through
I've come, I've come
So used to suspense building
Not sure what I should do

(instrumental)

Now I'm watching again
This will be my third time
And I'm wondering how long it will be on the screen
Harry Potter's ahead
It'll open in June
Got to love the feeling
Of laughing at Ron Weasley

Hey now, hey now
It's not really over
Hey now, hey now
I'll countdown to June
Here comes, here comes
I feel the suspense building
It can't get here too soon

Hey now, hey now
It's not really over
Hey now, hey now
I'll countdown to June

Hey now, hey now
It's not really over
Hey now, hey now
I'll countdown to June

I can relate a bit, Arwen - after leaving the theater after seeing The Return Of The King, I felt a little let-down - not because the movie disappointed me, but because it was such a high.....and now the rush is over! Back to real life - until the next fantasy comes along! Good job here, 5's.

Thanks, Johnny...it was totally bittersweet, huh? Oh well...we shall persevere!

You mean the good guys won? I was gonna see that movie! Now you've spoiled the ending! Rats! Well, lemme tell ya something, Arwen: In "Citizen Kane," Rosebud, is his childhood sled! In "Murder On the Orient Express," everybody did it! And in "Gone With the Wind," the North wins the war and Rhett leaves Scarlett! I was gonna say something about "Star Wars," but with the prequels, it's pretty pointless to reveal the "mystery."

Michael...when you start leaving votes along with your comments...i'll start leaving spoiler warnings in my introductions.

I knew the books too...didn't spoil it for me, I just wanted an LOTR #4 to magically appear. ..*sigh*

Btw, good job, Arwen!

Many thanks, Adagio...and I know what you mean with your comment. I think one critic said it best when she said that after it's all said and done, the greatest thing about the films is that even after 9 hours...all they have done is left us wanting more. I, at least, can agree with that!

If only Tolkein could right another book . . . straight 5's, by the way

The BBC comedy series 'Dead Ringers' did a sketch imagining how Richard Curtis ('Four Weddings', 'Notting Hill', Love, Actually' as well as the Blackadder series) would have directed a fourth LOTR film. And they had Gandalf and Saruman falling in love with each other! The Dead Ringers cast parodied LOTR a lot in the first TV series and another sketch had Harry Potter getting confused between Gandalf and Dumbledore, and then Dirty Den from Eastenders coming into the scene because he sort of came back from the dead too. Good stuff!
