'S Fagaim Mo Bhaile - Enya

Irish Gaelic

'S F?gaim Mo Bhaile

Maidin is t?s an lae
Is f?gaim mo bhaile [1]
T? mo chro?se go br?n
Is fad ar shi?l m'?ige

O?che is m? liom f?in
Sp?artha dubh go domhain, a cho?ch
Ag cuimhneamh ar laethanta a bh?
Gan gh? agus gan ghruaim
Eistim leis an ghaoth
Uaigneas m?r, go deo, a cho?ch

Deireadh an turas m?r
T?im br?nach, buartha 's briste
I mo dhiaidh nach mbeidh n?os m?
Ach, t? s? i nd?n d?inn, a ph?ist?

Is fada anois an l?
A d'fh?g m? mo bhaile
N?l ?thas i mo chro?
N?l ann ach an marbh [2]

Translation

And I Leave My Home

Morning and the day's beginning
And I leave my home
My heart is breaking
My youth is long past

Night and I am alone
Endless deep black skies
Remembering days that were
Without want and without gloom
I listen to the wind
Endless great loneliness forever

The end of the long journey
I am sad, sorrowful, broken
After me there will be no more (of my kind)
But children, it is our destiny

The day is long past
When I left my home
There is no hope in my heart
There is only death
