SLAN ABHAILE (words and music by Dermot Henry; recorded by Cathie Ryan, bi-lingual chorus)
Dermot Henry, ASCAP/ACORN

The sun is down; the moon is blue
I think they know that I'm missing you
But time will heal this heartfelt pain
As soon as I see you again

Slan abhaile.
Slan go foill
Safe home, good luck until we meet again
Beidh mo chroi seo briste gan thu a stor
This heart of mine will be broken without you my love
No go gcasfad aris orainn
Until we meet again
Eist is bi ag smaoineamh
Listen and be thinking
Ar an gceol 'ta ag teacht
On the music that is coming
O mo chroi seo amach
From the depths of my heart.

I see an island, you're on the pier
I see you crying in the misty air
You look so lonely and there's no one near
Wish I could hold you, wish you were here


Look out your window when you're feeling blue
You'll see a bluebird looking in at you
Lay down your head, let yourself be free
Take in your deepest breath and sing with me
