Luaidh

(C. Macdonald / R. Macdonald)

 

Luaidh, luaidh
Luaidh, O luaidh

 

‘Nuair a chunnaic mi thu
‘Nuair a dhùisg mi bho’m bhruadar
‘S a’ mhadainn ùr ‘s a’ dearrs’ a’ ghrian
O cha robh mi fada smuaintinn
Gum b’e seo gaol mo mhiann

 

‘Nuair a dh’ aithnich mi do chliù
‘Nuair a chunnaic mi do shùilean
‘Nuair a dh’ fhairich mi do bhlàths
Cha robh ni air talamh a dh’ iarrainn
An toil agam uil’ air bàrr

 

Bhon t-earrach gu teas an t-samhraidh
Gu’n reothadh aig deireadh bliadhn’
Daonnan bidh do cridhe a’ bualadh
Gaol mo mhiann

 

‘Nuair a dhùisg mi bho’m bhruadar
‘S a’ mhadainn ùr ‘s a’ dearrs’ a’ ghrain
O cha robh mi fada smuaintinn
Gu b’e seo gaol mo mhiann
Gaol mo mhiann

 

 

Love / Translation

 

Love, love
Love, O love

 

When I saw you
When I awoke from my dreaming
In the new morning and the rays of the sun
I did not take long in thinking
That this was my desire

 

When I realised your being
When I saw your eyes
When I felt your warmth
There was nothing on earth I needed more
My joy on the crest

 

From spring to the heat of summer
To the frosts at the year’s end
Your heart will always keep beating
My desire
