The Lyrics

Sadly, Eowyn is remembered only as the slayer of the Witch-King of Angmar at Pelennor field. But I think her love story with Faramir deserves a song.
I am just a mortal, in the shadow of Arwen
I have been neglected sadly in the minds of fans of good professor Tolki-en
It's Faramir
the one who is my only one true love not Aragorn
Our love is lesser known....

When I left the court of Théoden I was dressed up like a boy
I had pseudonyme of Dernhelm
and I rode with Merry in the fields of Pelennor
My lord was struck and I rode to defend him and then I drew my sword
The Witch-king came
and I defended Rohan's name

(Faramir! Where are you my only true love, Faramir?)

I blocked the blow of his mace with my shield that broke in two
Saw Merry stab him
and I lunged my sword in undead flesh no man could slay
I heard a scream -
then a darkness fell around me, and I could not see a thing
I was taken to the Healing House

(Faramir! Where are you my only true love, Faramir?)

I was laying on my sickbed when I met my Faramir
and we promised love each other
and when the King comes back, we'll marry and live happily

On the tower stands the Steward with Shield-maiden by his side
and she carries the reminders of the steel mace blow that struck her
and they see the lands of Gondor and dreams of Numenor;
I am mortal, he is mortal
yet our love still remains

It is you, my only true love, Faramir!
It seems Central European female Tolkien fans like Arwen more, while Scandinavians seem to like more Eowyn as their character model.

The best thing about the LOTR movies was that there was a hero and heroine for everybody to like.
