Water Shows the Hidden Heart

From the City of Constellations
to the wanderer
and a Place of Rains
he journeys on...
...the City of hesitation and doubt
the Island if the house the colour of the sea
the Plain of Mementoeshe journeys on to find his love...
...the Valley of lost time
the City of End and Endlessness
the Isle of Revenents
he journeys on...
...the City of Solitudes
the City of distnace from you
the City of Words of blue
and yellow and red and greenhe journeys on to find his love...
...where the road takes him through
the City of Sleep
the thinking that does not end in within him
Then he dreams
the road takes himthis man who is searchingit brings him
in silence through the night
where the Cities that do not Exist, exist
it brings him
in silence through the night
close to the City of Realisations;
it is here one finds the way...
...Mount Orisonthe City of Days
the Tree of the losthe journeys on...
...north of his love
a road throught a valley of darkness
the islands that are not of this worldhe journeys on to find his love...

It is a long way through darknessto the way of the eremite
to the eremite sings of the world and of
the journey of love, which is not lost in eternity
...the Valley where the moon is caught in trees
water shows the hidden heart
endlong into midnight
he journeys on......the parable of day
the Room of Books
where the winds come to him and say...
The song lyrics is Water Shows the Hidden Heart, written by Roma Ryan (lyricist) and sung by Enya is their invented language, Loxian.

What I like about foreign songs is that one doesn't understand what's being sung, it's just beautiful and musical. Not knowing leaves the mind with miles of room to imagine, to fill in the lyrical music with words of their own, to relax and create and imagine. Foreign songs are the top #1 on my list, then comes English. It's always nice to know the English lyrics.

I'll be posting foreign songs often, if you have a suggestion, feel free to e-mail me!
