This song is so beautiful and I actually looked up the translation not long ago. It is actually about saying goodbye to parents or grandparents who have passed. It may sound morbid but I would like to sing this at one of my parents funerals.

(D'Aodh Agus Do Mháire Uí Dhúgain)

(To my maternal grandparents ,
literally: "For Hugh and Mary Duggan")
Listen to my heart,
Forever sad
I'm lost without you
and your wife.
The great love in your lives <1>
Will guide me.
Be (plural) with me always
Day and night.
Chorus:
Weeping due to the great loneliness
The tears, sorrowfully
Asleep in the quiet green grave
In a deep peace.
There was blissfulness
But that is gone
You followed

I memorized the lyrics to this song before I knew what they meant. Now, I think of the meaning as I sing. When my grandmother died, I sang this song and cried. So touching.

Some people may call it Irish Gaelic, but its official name is Irish. People in Ireland call it Irish.

Stephanie hull it's Irish Gaelic. Not to be confused with Scottish Gaelic.

Erika, the language Enya sings in is officially called Irish. Scroll down for an in-depth explanation of the languages by Stephanie Hull.

Is this song on the Titanic movie with Kate Winslet? Reminds me of the song played as the flood was gushing in and everyone below knew they were going to drown. :-(

I love Enya, she's great. I use all of her songs for my massage sessions. The greatest thing of all, she's the only person singing all of her songs. There's no back up singers. She takes hours to do all of this :)
