Hollens, Peter - Gollum's Song Lyrics

Where once was light
Now darkness falls
Where once was love
Love is no more
Don't say goodbye
Don't say I didn't try
These tears we cry
Are falling rain
For all the lies you told us
The hurt, the pain
And we will weep to be so alone
We are lost
We can never go home
So in the end I'll be what I will be
A loyal friend was ever there for me
Now we say goodbye
We say you didn't try
These tears you cry
Have come to late
Take back the lies
The hurt, the pain
And you will weep when you face the end alone
You are lost
You can never go home
You are lost
You can never go home

  5. Zane P.R.

  6. Nabil Riordon


  7. Shireknight

    Love the song but unfortunately on this occasion I don't think it quite works for anyone other than Emiliana Torrini, your version of the Greatest Show from The Greatest Showman is outstanding though.

  8. PineappleExpress

    What is a Hollenses, precious?

  9. Rickus Kruger

    This has to be my favourite song from you! Wow

  10. emily benson

    every time i hear this, i get the chills!

  11. Clancy

    I wonder how many people wind up thinking about an ex partner when they hear this song? I sure did!

  12. Bryn Amethyst

    Magnetizing. Just, wow.

  13. Chrisanthea LeVert

    You’ve made this song even more haunting.

  14. jadbiz

    Is it a 100% human voice?

  15. TakiwaraTaki

    so why is the video cut now at the end ?

  16. kyselá kyselka

    ❤️❤️❤️😢❤️❤️❤️🎈 this song is my favourite ❤️❤️❤️🎈💋

  17. Rachel

    its hauntingly sad and beautiful

  18. The-Quiet-One

    Such an incredibly emotionally moving version of this song. Thank you very much.

  19. Minecraft CREEPER

    Hey question so my high school is running the lord of the rings and I was wondering if I talked them into it I play Gollum and I really like this cover and I’m asking permission cause why not

  20. anwe bacaudae

    what's in my pocket? I'm just happy to see you >*D

  21. Bekah Grey

    The effects were cheesy and overly dramatic for how low the budget was, and he really stretched his voice for a lot of this song 😂

  22. Evan Kenny

    1:58 is when the line moving across the screen lines up with the red bar mobing acroos the bottom

  23. Shadow Broker

    I think if you sing a little bit slower it is better :)

  24. Svenja Rick

    Wow !!!!

  25. zelordofzepotatoes


  26. Alan Acevedo

    Loved it

  27. RAGE_Xeno BOI

    the effect is amazing

  28. Natasha Caudill

    if Gollum does not get a home I will make Gandalf get him one.


    He got a home in that nice toasty warm magma.

  29. Ashleigh Piccinino

    I think it'd be cool if you performed "The Ent and the Entwife."

  30. Daniel Mihalev

    Please do the Witcher's Lullaby of woe, please, please, please!

  31. Daniel Mihalev

    Please do the Witcher's Lullaby of woe, please, please, please!

  32. Thea Coultrap

    it would like to hear that song i enjoy hearing your songs

  33. uberqueen05131974

    One word... BEAUTIFUL!

  34. JusBidniss

    "You are lost, you can never go home." And with that there is no Smeagol left, there is only Gollum, forever addicted to the Ring, to his own destruction. Which is the story of all such harmful addictions, and is why the story is relevant outside of Middle Earth.

  35. Matheus Silva Sousa

    I could really feel the corruption of the one ring taking over me, loved it

  36. I'm Canada

    YOU KNOW ELVISH??????!!!!!!!!! i'm like the biggest LOTR fan and i only know a little Sindarin!

  37. Sean McEuen

    Is this an original? I don’t remember it.

  38. trina20disneyfanatic

    That was chilling! Very nice.


    this gives me chills

  40. Brittany Hall

    I'm not depressed. Extremely creeped out honestly. Gollum always scares me.

  41. JM&NM Studios

    ... interesting VFX

  42. All Dat Jazz

    my love, my love, my precious, my precious, goldensess, poor hobbites, so poor, so afairess, don't kill Gollumsses

  43. Dmitri Bender

    Who else noticed that Peter's ears were slightly more pointy than normal?

  44. Maria Lorena Eloisa Bautista

    I'd love some lyrics for this.

  45. Rachel Hunt

    Okay I don't know if anyone else has truly realized how much more work had to go into this cover compared to others of his. Because like, he had to film each part twice. Consider how much work goes into a normal accapella cover, then double it. God I love this video

  46. GermanCliqueSpam


  47. Maura Guaiumi

    It's difficult for a man to sing songs sung by women and you, Peter Hollens, are always able to do do it.

  48. WilliamGM3rd

    You should do "Blunt the Knives" from the Hobbit!!! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEASE???

  49. NickTheWorld

    0:34 WOAH how did you do that?

  50. Mindy Lafler

    Hi there.
    I absolutely love singing with you on this song! Of course, I am an octave higher, so that part where you go up into your head voice, I'm up there, an octave higher, with you. Yep! Love it!

  51. Florence Tuffigo

    superbe interprétation,bravo

  52. Mindy Lafler

    Hi there.
    Depressed in a most beautiful way. It is helping me find my voice again. Of course, I have to sing an octave above you, but it's where my natural singing voice is. Yes! This song is perfect. The writer of this song, had a fantastic sense of the emotion this song needed. I dig it. It is such a perfect statement of Gollum's life.
    Can't help myself but to join you every time I play this one. I don't know all the words to all the other songs as yet. Still working on my vocal stamina. (I have mild COPD-bronchitis).
    Thank you Peter.

  53. Jan Adema

    I did not like this at all

  54. Mindy Lafler

    Hi there.
    Haunting, beautiful. Will stick with me.
    Thank you.

  93. RandTheNorwegianGamer

    Peter, can you do Grease? I'd love to hear it :D

  94. Ender Hershey

    I think this is one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs in LotR. If you really listen to the lyrics you will definitely see why it is called 'Gollum's Song'. 😪 it's so sad.

  95. Samuel

    I loved it

  96. Samuel


  97. NerdyHubb222

    Please do the Rings of Akhaten from Doctor Who.
