An t-éan bán ag eitilt gan stró as do bhéal.
(The white bird flies with ease from your mouth)

Agus mise I mo sheasamh faoi do sholas géar.
(And me standing there under your sharp light)

Na síoda ag titim barr do theanga.
(The silk falling from your tongue)

Níl mé abalalta na focail ceart a rá leat.
(I'm not able to say the right words to you)

Ba mhaith liom na sléibhte is airde a dhreapadh agus na focail a bhéicil amach os cionn na scamaill is airde.
(I want to climb the highest mountains and scream the words out over the highest clouds)

Nior fagadh na focail agam.
(The words don't leave me)

Grá mór, grá fior, grá an domhain, is é an grá is laidir.
(A huge love, a fierce love, the love of the world, this is the strongest love)

Grá mór, grá fior, grá an domhain, is é an grá is laidir.

Tá mé I ngrá leat.
(I'm in love with you)

Grá mór, grá fior, grá an domhain, is é an grá is laidir.
Grá mór, grá fior, grá an domhain, is é an grá is laidir.
Tá mé I ngrá leat.

    General CommentTo keep this song in your mind 'till the really love will be found. The words describe the great feeling very true. And irish
    language singing about love - it seems to be wonderfull.
