Song of the Day : J’attends by Denez Prigent And Lisa Gerrard (Gortoz A Ran)

Black Hawk Down by Miteality

From  Black Hawk Down (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) by Hans Zimmer.
Composed and written by Denez Prigent, performed by Denez Prigent and Lisa Gerrard

The language used here is breton, a celtic one (a language on the verge of disappearance : a wish of the French State since centuries).

Lyrics:

Gortozet ‘m eus, gortozet pell
E skeud teñval tourioù gell
E skeud teñval tourioù gell

E skeud teñval an tourioù glav
C’hwi am gwelo ‘c’hortoz atav
C’hwi am gwelo ‘c’hortoz atav

Un deiz a vo ‘teuio en-dro
Dreist ar morioù, dreist ar maezioù
Dreist ar maezioù, dreist ar morioù

D’am laerezh war an treujoù
‘teuio en-dro karget a fru
E skeud teñval an tourioù du

‘teuio en-dro an avel c’hlas
Da analañ va c’halon c’hloaz’t

Kaset e vin diouzh e anall
Pell gant ar red en ur vro all

Kaset e vin diouzh e alan
Pell gant ar red, hervez ‘deus c’hoant

Hervez ‘deus c’hoant pell eus ar bed
Etre ar mor hag ar stered

English:
“I’m Waiting”

I was waiting, waiting for a long time
In the dark shadow of grey towers
In the dark shadow of grey towers

In the dark shadow of rain towers
You will see me waiting forever
You will see me waiting forever

One day it will come back
Over the lands, over the seas

The green wind will return
And take back with it my wounded heart

I will be pulled away by its breath
Far away in the stream, wherever it wishes

Wherever it wishes, far away from this world
Between the sea and the stars
