Gaelic Song Lyrics - words for some top Scottish songs

Air a'Chuan by Runrig

Tha am ball air fhuasgladh
Is tha sinn a' gluasad
Air a' chuan, air a' chuan
Tha sinn a' seoladh
Tro thonnan uaine
Air a' chuan, air a' chuan

Aur cursa deonach
Tha sinn a' seoladh
Air a' chuan, air a' chuan
Fad bho thir
Is an talamh aghmhor
Air a' chuan, air a' chuan

Is mi a' sealltainn man cuairt
Is mi cho fada bhuat
Cail ach muir, tonnan is cuan
O mo run

Tha a' ghaoth a' seideadh
Nan tonnan fiadhaich
Air a' chuan, air a' chuan
Tro thonnan fiadhaich
Is droch shide
Air a' chuan, air a' chuan

Cho domhain an cuan
Cho luachmhor an uair
Nach mair fada buan
O mo run

Sinn a' treabhadh
Tron an oidhche
Air a' chuan, air a' chuan
Siubhal sabhailteachd
Is madainn shunndach
Air a' chuan, air a' chuan

Thig crioch air an t-saoghal
Is thig crioch air daoin
Ach mairidh ceol is mairidh gaol
O mo run

Translation into English

On the Open Seas

The ropes have been undone
And we are set adrift
On the open seas
We are sailing on
Through the green waves
On the open seas

On a willing course
We keep sailing
On the open seas
Ever far from land
And the glorious soil

And as I look around me
All I feel is my distance from you
Separated by the relentless ocean
My love

The wind is rushing
Through the wild waves
Through the raging seas
And the brooding weather
On the open seas

The ocean is unfathomable
And the time that lever lasts
Is too previous
My love

And so we journey on
Through the night
On the open seas
Searching for safe waters
And the peaceful morning

The world will come to an end
An end must come for mankind
But music and love
They'll last forever
My love
