This song was written (lyrics and music) by Denez Prigent, French singer singing only in Breton. Breton is a language spoken in Brittany, the western province of France. Lisa Gerrard participated in this song with...
Gortozet 'm eus, gortozet pell
E skeud teñval tourioù gell
E skeud teñval tourioù gell
E skeud teñval an tourioù glav
C'hwi am gwelo 'c'hortoz atav
C'hwi am gwelo 'c'hortoz atav

Un deiz a vo 'teuio en-dro
Dreist ar maezioù, dreist ar morioù
'Teuio en-dro an avel c'hlas
Da analañ va c'halon c'hloaz't

Kaset e vin diouzh e alan
Pell gant ar red, hervez 'deus c'hoant
Hervez 'deus c'hoant pell eus ar bed
Etre ar mor hag ar stered

    General CommentNote that the lyrics above are sung by Denez Prigent. Lisa Gerrard sings her usual style with nonsensical semantic content. :)

    English translation, found on the web:

    I waited, waited for a long time
    In the dark shadow of brown towers
    In the dark shadow of brown towers
    In the dark shadow of rain towers
    You will see me waiting forever
    You will see me waiting forever

    One day it will come back
    Over the lands, over the seas
    Will come back the green wind
    And bring with it my wounded heart

    I will be pulled away by its breath
    Far away by its stream, wherever it wishes
    Wherever it wishes, far away from this world
    Between the sea and the stars
