re: Geoffroi's Song

God Of Loss by Darlingside -
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0z0uuig92xzem6f/8-%28AegKeli%29GodOfLoss.abc?dl=0

Bit of a personal one here which I wouldn't normally post but I feel the need to share.

As most of you know I have been extremely ill; still am actually and am still in hospital, going on 8 weeks this spell. Anyway I got obsessed with a song during a very dark time and resolved to do something with it.

And to help with transcribing the tabs I recruited the highly talented Fool while Aegthil wasn't looking and he produced a fine file for me. Of course, I promptly changed and ruined it so don't blame him for the flaws.

The first lyrics I did were rather dark but they are now out of my system and I have had a rewrite based on my bio. They still express the love I have of the music community in Lotro and the support I have had from you all recently.

And I'm still obsessed with Darlingside!


at 40s
My father was a Haradhrim,
my mother I did not know.
Abandoned as a baby
with just a harp in tow.
Taken to Gondor.

I grew up with a merchant,
a kind man and his wife.
They grew me strong and healthy,
no trouble in my life,
nor any kind of strife.

And yet I leave in some disgrace,
too many lasses have I upset.
A bitter blow from the God of Loss
as I head off to the West.

at 2:13
So I brought my harp to Bree
to play for you good folks.
I gathered up companions
and we became Andune.
We see you lovely friends,
our hearts fill with joy.
And all I know is that I obey
The faithful God of Bards.
Faithful God of Bards.

at 3:14
So no more thoughts of darkness
No worry or despair.
We play with joy, you dance with grace
Together we are one.

re: Geoffroi's Song

This is beautiful, and that doesn't' seem like a good enough word. It seems like a pale, puny word compared to a grand thing like this.

I know I've taken comfort in music in many of my darker times. I am glad you can take some in it as well in this difficult time.

Who is cutting onions? Someone airing out Aegthil's socks in here? Yikes, excuse me.

I have just listened to the original recording for the first time & then to your collaboration with Aegthil. Your lyrics for Geoffroi's Song are perfect. (I'm liking Darlingside's music too)

You suck!

I've tried five times to get all the way through it, but have not yet done so without breaking down crying. (Don't know why, but ‘filling friends” hearts with joy’ really gets to me.)

Thank you so much for this one, Geoff. It's what it's all about.

This is very moving. Both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. Thank you for sharing.
