Jamie McDell - The Black Arrow (The Hobbit Song) Lyrics

The dark grows on the river
Our friends stay on the brighter side
The true friends can only shiver
In times so cold the match can't light

And flames won't catch me now,
I'm half way down
I'm already falling!
And there's just one way out
Here and now the black arrow's calling!

My eyes, they hold the only weakness
I watch and wait for signs to go
My breath grows heavier, I'm sleepless
I know the path my fathers chose

And flames won't catch me now,
I'm half way down
I'm already falling!
And there's just one way out
Here and now the black arrow's calling!

My hands stay strong
I brave the distance
I know I only have one chance

And flames won't catch me now,
I'm half way down
I'm already falling!
And there's just one way out
Here and now the black arrow's calling!

  5. Sven F

    cute young singers.
    the pigtails are sooo cool!

  6. Russell Knipe

    Something special happens when siblings sing together. Because the voices are so closely matched, harmonies are glorious.
     Jamie, I may be 64 years old, but I know something good when I hear it. I have "Angel" on my Ipod. I have to admit that when I first heard it, I thought it was a big US star, like Christina Aguilera. Mate, you made a great job of that.
    Keep up the good work.

  7. abayer1000

  8. Michelle B.

  90. vikay

    i love this song!! 

  91. Michael Duthie

    Hey Jamie, just wondering what sort of camera/mic setup you use? I've been thinking about getting into some of this youtube stuff but not sure if I need a separate mic or not. Whatever you use sounds great - might possibly just be because your good at what you do haha.

  92. Cj Stoffberg

    your voices are perfect together!

  93. Sarah Taylor

    This is incredibly beautiful :)

  94. Isabel Coyle

    Omg this is so good! They should actually use it in the movie! If they don't, I'll cry xx

  95. wikitoriamurphy

    Jamie, this really is amazing. I love this and you are a cery talented composer! Xx

  96. Katy Smith

    Omg!! This is so amazing!! You need to put in on an album! You need to sing it on the hobbit album! Love you!!

  97. Tularni Belle Murphy

    Who is older out of you two? And also this should definetely be in the next hobbit movie! I love you!!

    Jamie McDell

    I'm older :) aww thanks heaps Tularni I really appreciate that!


    I definitely agree that this should be part of the next Hobbit soundtrack. The tone this song's producing, already summons (for me anyway) the characters' journey -their story, i guess you could say - and a song such as that is definitely worthy of being part of the next film.

  98. Robert Law

    Solid effort! 

  99. Mehr Rafiei

    You're so talented in making music .. Keep up the good work :)

  100. Céline D Imperio

    I love this song ! You're so talented !
