It's actually the inverse of Danny Boy.

"It's me, it's me who has to hurry, and you who has to stay.
But I'll come back again, your sad heart whispers..."

Danny Boy? It's on my Culann's Hounds CD, where even I can tell that the girl shouldn't be trying to hit those notes, but it's also been stuck in my head recently because it's in an insurance commercial.

Alas! Danny Boy is not the correct answer.

What, saying it isn't Danny Boy isn't enough of a hint? ;)

The meaning of the first sentence is reversed.

Was this perhaps Gimli expressing his regret at having to leave Lothlórien? Was the gender of the last pronoun reversed as well?


Just to bring it to the new page:

Good guess. Not correct, but a good guess! You have the correct speaker. The gender of the last pronoun is NOT reversed.

It sounds a lot like someone lamenting that they have to leave a fallen comrade.

So if it's Gimli, I'm going to say - at Balin's tomb?

Wait, scratch that - it must be this:

Quote:
Now long shall I journey ere I have joy again. It is I that must hasten away, and he that must remain.


Lamenting Gandalf, not Balin.

Here's our brand new quote:

Quote:
She had already almost solidified me.


:shock: It's not what you think.

Another hint needed?

Or an easier quote?

Or a less naughty one?
