Nope, it's about a woman of the race of men.

A further hint: While Ransom Stoddard did return, this man did not.

I am gonna revive this, and this song fits whom I have in mind. And no, it isn't anyone from my 'mafia'

I had my wake up
Won't you wake up
I keep asking why
And I can't take it
It wasn't fake
It happened, you passed by

Now you are gone, now you are gone
There you go, there you go
Somewhere I can't bring you back
Now you are gone, now you are gone
There you go, there you go,
Somewhere you're not coming back

The day you slipped away
Was the day I found it won't be the same no..
The day you slipped away
Was the day that I found it won't be the same oh...

(From "Slipped Away by Avril Lavigne)

Thread Revival

Because I stumbled upon a collection of perfect songs for some of ME stuff. So here is the first one.

We'll drive out the [darkness] from this land that we own.
With our blood and our steel we will take back our home.

I’m splitting hairs but the song is from Skyrim 😛

Obviously there’s two answers that come to mind. I’ll pick the more obscure one fist.

Retaking Osgiliath

I’m much less versed on first age lore so if it’s in there I’m not going to get it. Granted the original context matters less, but the song is a Stormcloak song about taking back Dkyrim from the Imperials and Thalmor.

Now blood and steel definitely implies war or battle, so it’s not Bombadil casting out the wights since for that he used song. The song is from a bard but that’s pushing.

Now Rohan does drive Saruman out and certainly lots of blood and swords involved there.

Treebeard and the Ents in the last March of the ents. Certainly less steal but more blood. Afterall they willingly marched into what for all intents was the end of their people.

Lastly, the Scouring of the Shire definitely has a merit to the song as well.

So there’s my next three guesses

Rohan
Treebeard
Scouring of the Shire

Nope. It looks like this answer doesn't come to mind easily, but the answer is the Elves' attempt to reclaim Beleriand, the land of their birth.
