In Extremo – Liam

Liam

Lá seideadh amháin
Nuair luí sí ina theannta
Shéid an stoirm, bhris na tonnta
Lá ar bhádh a stór sa mhuir
Chaoin an gaoth oíche
Chaoin sí ina cluas
Fada amach
Chuaigh sé
Do stór caillte

Liam, Liam, bím I gcónai I do theannta
Liam, Liam, Tá grá agam don mhuir
Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam
Beidh mé agat gan mhoill

I mbád a hathair
Lán sí le h-éirí gréine
Sheol si de lá is d'oíche
D'impigh sí na Déithe
Bhí an chinnúint léi
Rinne said trócaire uirthi
Fada amuigh
Ansin bhuail sí le long

Liam, Liam, bím I gcónai I do theannta
Liam, Liam, Tá grá agam don mhuir
Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam
Beidh mé agat gan mhoill

Chaptaen, cogar anois dom
An bhfuil mo stór in bhur measc
Stróic na tonnta é thar bhord
Rug an mhuir fhián é léi
Chaoin an cailín
Chaoin sí go géar
Fada amuigh
Gur imigh a deora le mhuir

Liam, Liam, bím I gcónai I do theannta
Liam, Liam, Tá grá agam don mhuir
Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam
Beidh mé agat gan mhoill
Liam

One gusty day
When she lay despairing
The storm blew, the waves broke
On the day her love died at sea
The night wind cried
It cried in her ears
Far away
He went
Her lost love

Liam, Liam, I will always be forlorn for you
Liam, Liam, I have love for the sea
Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam
I'll be with you soon

In her father's boat
She left with the rising sun
She sailed day and night
She beseeched the Gods
Fate was with her that day
They took mercy on her
Far out to sea
She met with a ship

Liam, Liam, I will always be forlorn for you
Liam, Liam, I have love for the sea
Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam
I'll be with you soon

"Captain, confide in me
Is my love amongst you?
The waves struck him overboard,
The wild sea bore him away with her"
The girl cried
She cried loud and shrill
Far out to sea
Her tears disappeared into the ocean

Liam, Liam, I will always be forlorn for you
Liam, Liam, I have love for the sea
Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam, Liam
I'll be with you soon
