Na Dánta Seo

Na dánta seo
is rudaí iad a dheinimse
sa dorchadas
ag síneadh chugatsa
pé thú féinig
agus
an bhfuil tú réidh?

Na briathra seo
is clocha san uisce iad
ar a dteitheadh

Na línte creatlaí seo
géaga baothdhána mo mhianta is mo ghrá iad.

Is strainséir mé
ag foghlaim conas na strainséirí atá timpeall orm
a adhradh

Pé duine atá ionatsa
pé duine a bheidh ionam féin

NICK DRAKE: WAY TO BLUE / AN BEALACH GO DTÍ GORM

AN BEALACH GO DTÍ GORM


Nach bhfuil siolla ann a léireodh dom an tslí
Nach bhfuil eolas ann faoin mbealach 'dtí an ghrian
Inis domsa gach aon ní
Léirigh domsa gan imní
Tar is abair liom
An bealach go dtí gorm.

Chonaic tú an tír, maireann sí ar bhríos
Féach an dtuigeann tú an solas ins na crainn
Inis domsa gach aon ní
Léirigh domsa gan imní
Abair liom inniu
An bealach go dtí gorm.

Féach trí am is aimsigh rím
Abair cad tá ann
Beimid ann, sin mar 'bhíonn,
Dóchasach mar dhall

Bhfuil sé ann mar scáil, gach a raibh id' cheann
An bhfuil fód le fáil
Is an oíche ann?
Inis domsa gach aon ní
Léirigh domsa gan imní
Tar is abair liom
An bealach go dtí gorm.


WAY TO BLUE


Don't you have a word to show what may be done
Have you never heard a way to find the sun
Tell me all that you may know
Show me what you have to show
Won't you come and say
If you know the way to blue?

Have you seen the land living by the breeze
Can you understand a light among the trees
Tell me all that you may know
Show me what you have to show
Tell us all today
If you know the way to blue?

Look through time and find your rhyme
Tell us what you find
We will wait at your gate
Hoping like the blind.

Can you now recall all that you have known?
Will you never fall
When the light has flown?
Tell me all that you may know
Show me what you have to show
Won't you come and say
If you know the way to blue?

NICK DRAKE - CELLO SONG / AMHRÁN NA DORDVEIDHLE

AMHRÁN NA DORDVEIDHLE


Gnúis ait, is na súil'
Mílítheach gan bhréag
Tuigeann tú go rímhaith
Nach bhfuil aon ghá le scaoll
Mar na haislingí 'tháinig is tú óg
Dhein siad cur síos
Ar thír na rós.

Ó nach lag a bhís
Is an oíche-an fhuar
Agus airm na mothúchán
Ag troid monuar
Ach má tá an domhan ag dul sa chré
Tá tusa ag léim suas
ar thonnta geala glé

Déan dearmad ar an saol seo
A bhfuilim ann
Suífead is fanfad
Canfad m'amhrán
Is má fheiceann tú lá éigin mé sa phlód
Tabhair lámh chúnta domsa
Is ardaigh mé ón bhfód.

CELLO SONG


Strange face, with your eyes
So pale and sincere
Underneath you know well
You have nothing to fear
For the dreams that came to you when so young
Told of a life
Where spring is sprung

You would seem so frail
In the cold of the night
When the armies of emotion
Go out to fight
But while the earth sinks to its grave
You sail to the sky
On the crest of a wave

So forget this cruel world
Where I belong
I'll just sit and wait
And sing my song
And if one day you should see me in the crowd
Lend a hand and lift me
To your place in the cloud

NICK DRAKE: RIVER MAN / FEAR NA hABHANN

FEAR NA hABHANN


Beití ag teacht faoi mo dhéin
is do chuala óna béal
faoi inniu is inné
is duilleoga.

Ní raibh cloiste aici faoin nuacht
ní raibh am aici roghnú
is dul amú
tá sí cróga.

Labhróidh mé le fear na habhann
labhróidh mé amach go lom
mar tá sé in am
do líológa.

Má insíonn sé dom a rún
rún mór na habhann a ritheann fúinn
pléaráca chugainn
roimh theacht an fhómhair.

Beití is í ag guí go tréan
go n-imeoidh an spéir i gcéin
nó fanacht linn
cá bhfios, ar sí

Mar nuair a thit an fhearthainn mhín
'glaoch uirthi arís go binn
chaill sí an phian
ag súil le brí.

Labhróidh mé le fear na habhann
labhróidh mé amach go lom
mar tá sí gann -
an tsaoirse a bhí!

Má insíonn sé dom a rún
rún mór na habhann a ritheann fúinn
is am amú
an scéal dom chroí

Ó - tagaid is imíd
Ó - tagaid is imíd


RIVER MAN


Betty came by on her way
Said she had a word to say
About things today
And fallen leaves.

Said she hadn't heard the news
Hadn't had the time to choose
A way to lose
But she believes.

Going to see the river man
Going to tell him all I can
About the plan
For lilac time.

If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
And all night shows
In summertime.

Betty said she prayed today
For the sky to blow away
Or maybe stay
She wasn't sure.

For when she thought of summer rain
Calling for her mind again
She lost the pain
And stayed for more.

Going to see the river man
Going to tell him all I can
About the ban
On feeling free.

If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
I don't suppose
It's meant for me.

Oh, how they come and go
Oh, how they come and go.

Smaoineamh an Lae

Saor atá an t-aingeal de bharr a chuid eolais,
saor atá an bhrúid de bharr a chuid aineolais.
Eatarthu streachailt an duine.
