Overall Meaning

The song 'Evenstar' by Howard Shore is a beautiful piece of music that was used in the movie 'The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.' The lyrics of the song are in Sindarin, one of the languages of the elves in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth. The solo in Sindarin roughly translates to 'Not the end, it is the beginning. Now it is necessary not to fall, if you don't trust something.' The singer is advising someone to not give up even if things seem to be ending, and not to lose hope if they are unsure about something. The chorus in Sindarin repeats the same line, 'Not the end, it is the beginning,' emphasizing that there is always hope for a new beginning no matter how hopeless it may seem.


The second solo in Sindarin is a little more abstract and poetic, roughly translating to 'Trust this, trust this, trust. Trust this, trust love. You trust something, trust this.' The singer is imploring the listener to trust in something, possibly love, but it could also be interpreted as trusting in oneself or one's own abilities. The chorus repeats the phrase 'trust,' reinforcing the idea of relying on something or someone.


Overall, the lyrics of 'Evenstar' are about hope, perseverance, and trust. The song encourages the listener to keep going even when things seem tough, and to have faith in something, whether it's love or oneself.

Howard Shore really didn’t have to make the scores to this films as beautifully life altering as he did. The films would have been amazing anyway. But Shore’s scores are one of the reasons why this trilogy will live eternally through the ages.
