DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Add: ETERNITY (Dougie MacLean)
From: Genie
Date: 16 Aug 10 - 04:55 PM

I will sow this seed again,
I will work this field and know it's never-ending.

I'll lose a son to the German wars -
We'll lose the land he was fighting for,
Lose our language to greed and gain,
All washed away by a southern rain,
Washed until we can't see
What our own destiny meant us to be.

Here's another beautiful song from Dougie Maclean:

Music & Lyrics by Dougie MacLean. Published by Limetree Arts and Music

She loves me, she loves me not –
Where can a simple island boy begin?
This Highland pride is all I've got
But in the darkness it means everything.
It makes me one with the tide,
It makes me strong when I'm burning inside.

Standing here on Cadderley
Between the burn and the turning sea,
I gaze across at these golden hills.
I'm looking all the way to eternity,
All the way to eternity.

I stand naked, I'm the native one –
I like to feel the wind across my face.
I like to dream but maybe I should run
In case our tracks get covered and we leave no trace,
No trace of where we have come,
No trace of song we can hold for our young.


Dougie Maclean sings "Eternity"

(The lyrics I posted were found at but edited very slightly to match the lyrics as Dougie sings them in the video I linked to.
