Use Well the Days... [In reply to] Can't Post

The lyrics from verse 2:

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
Towards the Moon or to the Sun.

were used for Annie Lennox's "Use Well the Days" which was planned for RotK, but dropped in favour of "Into the West". However you can definitely hear a livelier version of the melody from the former song in the "World is ahead" track (I believe that is what FrogmortonJustice I referring to in his post below.)


"Choosing Trust over Doubt gets me burned once in a while, but I'd rather be singed than hardened."
