"In Dreams" is a song by Howard Shore, with lyrics by Fran Walsh, originally written for the motion picture The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. In the movie, it was sung by the boy soprano Edward Ross.[1] It was also sung by another boy soprano named James Wilson, but was not noted on the album. Since then, it has been arranged for many occasions, including a full symphonic version arranged by Kurt Bestor and sung by Ryan Tani and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Lindsey Stirling played and sang this song as part of her "Lord Of The Rings Medley" music video.

The last lines pay homage to There and Back Again, an alternate title for Lord of the Rings author J. R. R. Tolkien's earlier book The Hobbit, which precedes and sets the background for the main story that has been adapted into major motion pictures.
