"Amarantine" as written by Nicky Ryan, Roma Ryan and Eithne Ni Bhraonain....
You know when you gave your love away
It opens your heart, everything is new
And you know time will always find a way
To let your heart believe it's true
You know love is everything you say
A whisper, a word, promises you give
You feel it in the heartbeat of the day
You know this is the way love is

Amarantine
Amarantine
Amarantine
Love is always love

You know love may sometimes make you cry
So let the tears go, they will flow away
For you know love will always let you fly
How far a heart can fly away

Amarantine
Amarantine
Amarantine
Love is always love

You know when love's shining in your eyes
It may be the stars fallen from above
And you know love is with you when you rise
For night and day belong to love

    General CommentSorry, but I think that is kinda obvious. We are talking about Enya here. She has to be, if not the best, then very close to the best female vocalist in the world.

    General CommentGreat song, she explains herself so we don't have to. Call me crazy, but I think someone with a sound like razorlight or green day should do a cover of this one, with distorted amps and everything. Does anyone else hear this?

    General CommentLove is many things, and it surrounds us wherever we go. It's true that love does open our hearts, and it hurts, it's in every word we speak or should be.

    General CommentThis song is so pretty. The lyrics make it even prettier. I love how Amarantine is a never blooming flower and it's like love, never stops blooming. That makes me love the song even more.

    It sounds like she says "love is love is love" instead of "love is always love" :D

    General CommentI have grown many varieties of amaranthus and if the plant grows out of love then the labour I gave to see it was out of the same love. Thank you Enya for making a song about my garden, I am grateful, forever.

    General CommentYou know when you give your love away
    it opens your heart,
    everything is new.
    And you know time will always find a way
    to let your heart believe it's true.

    You know love is everything you say;
    a whisper, a word,
    promises you give.
    You feel it in the heartbeat of the day.
    You know this is the way love is.

    Chorus
    Amarantine...
    Amarantine...
    Amarantine...
    Love is.
    Love is.
    Love...

    You know love may sometimes make you cry,
    so let the tears go,
    they will flow away,
    for you know love will always let you fly
    -how far a heart can fly away!

    Chorus

    You know when love's shining in your eyes
    it may be the stars
    fallen from above.
    And you know love is with you when you rise,
    for night and day belong to love.
