lyrics

Cogar liom, Ó ná éirigh a stóir
Tá sé dainsearach lasmuigh
Cogar liom, ná tabhairt aird ar na ndeor
Ó tá sé contúirteach san domhan mór mílteannach sin

Mmmmm....

Tá na coillte ar tine anocht
Tá deatach dubh dorcha ag fás
Níl mé clíste, no saibhir no bocht
Ach níl aon rud fagtha dom anseo

Curfá:
A chara, a chara, cá bhfuil tú imithe?
Tá farraige folamha eadrann anois
Súile dubha, tá gach gné duit aithrithe
Ó bháigh tú mo chara le fearg agus éad
'gus tá tú grammaithe le chéile le tairní agus téid

Ní tógfaidh mé an mílleán, níl ormsa an locht
Níor dhíol mé mo anam i gcomhair beagánín cumacht,
Ach fós - fós - tá faitíos orm go lasfinn d'aon bhflam
Ó tógfainn ar ais é, ach níl mé in ndann, tá mé dóite

Curfá

Le tairní agus téid...
Ah...

Translation:
("Codhladh Sámh" means Sleep soundly)

Whisper with me, don't get up my love
It's dangerous outside
Whisper with me, don't pay heed to the tears
It's dangerous in that huge world

Mmmm...

The woods are on fire tonight
black, dark smoke is growing
I'm not clever, or rich or poor
but there is nothing left for me here

Chorus:
My friend, my friend, where have you gone?
There are empty oceans between us now
Black eyes, every aspect of you has changed
You drowned my friend with anger and jealousy
you're held together by nails and string

I won't take the blame, the fault isn't mine
I didn't sell my soul for a bit of power
But still, still, I'm afraid I'll burst into flame
I'd take it back, but I can't, I'm burned

Chorus:

With nails and string
Ah.....
