'S Fágaim Mo Bhaile
(Irish Gaelic: And I Leave My Home)
Music by Enya
Lyrics by Roma Ryan


Irish Gaelic:

Maidin is tús an lae
Is fágaim mo bhaile
Tá mo chroíse go brón
Is fad ar shiúl m'óige

Oíche is mé liom féin
Spéartha dubh go domhain, a choích
Ag cuimhneamh ar laethanta a bhí
Gan ghá agus gan ghruaim
Eistim leis an ghaoth
Uaigneas mór, go deo, a choích

Deireadh an turas mór
Táim brónach, buartha 's briste
I mo dhiaidh nach mbeidh níos mó
Ach, tá sé i ndán dúinn, a pháistí

Is fada anois an lá
A d'fhág mé mo bhaile
Níl áthas i mo chroí
Níl ann ach an marbh


Translation from Irish Gaelic:

Morning and the start of the day
and I leave my home
My heart is grieving
and my youth is long past

Night and I am alone
Endless deep black skies
Recollecting the days that were
carefree and happy
I listen to the wind
Great loneliness, forever, and ever

The end of the great journey
I am sad, sorrowful, and broken
After me there will be nothing more
But, it is our fate, children

Long ago was the day
that I left my home
There is no joy in my life
Nothing is left except the dead
