'S Fagaim Mo Bhaile (And I Leave My Home)

Enya

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 cuimhneach 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.

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 )
