May It Be 2:45 (enya)
On the very last day of recording Gary Thompson suggested this song. We went to Ed Tree's neighbor's house to watch the Lord of the Rings DVD, to hear it for the first time. 2 hours later, it was arranged, recorded, and we liked it so much we put it first on the CD!


May it (D) be an evening (G)star
Shines (D)down upon (A7)you
May it (Bm)be when darkness (G)falls
