It's a sure sign the end is near, the official video clip for 'The Last Goodbye,' the theme song for [The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies](movie:512312) has been released, and get the tissues out because they were definitely out for tears when they created this one.

As if the song itself wasn't emotional enough, it is sung by Lord of the Rings alumnus Billy Boyd, who played the hobbit Pippin in the films. But wait, don't bother drying your tears yet, because the video clip itself is made up of different snippets from all six of Middle-Earth saga films as well as behind-the-scenes footage.

Check out some of the highlights of video clip and watch the whole thing at the bottom:

It starts as all good stories start

But with the beautiful soundtrack of Billy Boyd

The clip has scenes from The Hobbit films

Including the upcoming Battle of the Five Armies

The huge Gates of Argonath appear

And beautiful sweeping scenic shots

With scenes from Lord of the Rings

And simply awesome snippets of behind-the-scenes footage

Emotional moments from Lord of the Rings

And more awesome behind-the-scenes footage

Orlando Bloom and Peter Jackson having a laugh on set

And this touching moment between Ian McKellan and Peter Jackson with Martin Freeman looking on

And the clip ends in the most fitting way ever

I'm not going to lie, that was a bit of an emotional journey! The scenes are so beautifully cut together and the song is so fitting that I have no doubt it will soften even the hardest of hearts.
