"Caribbean Blue" as written by Nicky Ryan, Roma Ryan and Eithne Ni Bhraonain....
Eurus
Afer Ventus

So the world goes round and round
With all you ever knew
They say the sky high above
Is Caribbean blue

If every man says all he can
If every man is true
Do I believe the sky above
Is Caribbean blue

Boreas
Zephryus

If all you told was turned to gold
If all you dreamed was new
Imagine sky high above
In Caribbean blue

    General CommentI remember hearing the beginning of this song over and over and over and over again....i was taking a college exam in Calculus....in the Fine Arts building for some reason. The floor below they were doing dances and this song hummed through the floor. I don't know if the rest of the class appreciated this song. But it sold me on Enya. It brought me into her music fully.... (P.S. I got an "A" in the class)

    General CommentI love how she just lifts you up about 2 minutes into it, then goes back to the "...if all you told was turned to gold". Then the layers of her beautiful to end it are just so surreal. This song can tame even the most savage of beasts.

    General CommentOne of my favorite Enya songs. When I was a child, my mom would put on the Enya CD "Shepherd Moons" to help my brother and I fall asleep. This song has a lot of meaning to me. I believe it is about growing up and questioning things we were taught as young children. The first verse:

    "So the world goes round and round
    With all you ever knew
    They say the sky high above
    Is Caribbean blue"

    Pretty much captures what we know (or think we know as children). Of course, our childhood knowledge is constructed entirely by those who teach us, and we accept these teachings because we are not yet old enough to question the things we are taught. It is not until the second verse, that we begin to hear the author question things for herself:

    "If every man says all he can,
    If every man is true,
    Do I believe the sky above
    Is Caribbean blue?"

    Assuming all men tell the truth, the author would be more willing to accept the things they say. But knowing that people do lie, the author asks herself "do I really believe these things to be true?" Finally we come to the last verse:

    "If all you told was turned to gold,
    If all you dreamed were new,
    Imagine sky high above
    In Caribbean blue"

    In this verse the author imagines a world in which everyone tells the truth, and where the truth is actually on par with the things she was taught as a child. Of course, our human knowledge will always fall short, as it is impossible for us to know everything about life, our world, and our universe. Finally realizing this, the writer comes to the conclusion that, in the end, all that is left is our imagination....
