Níl Sé'n Lá lyrics

by Celtic Woman

Chuaigh mé isteach i dteach aréir
Is d'iarr mé cairde ar mhnaoi an leanna.
Is é dúirt sí liom "Ní bhfaighidh tú deor.
Buail an bóthar is gabh abhaile

I came by a house last night
And told the woman I am staying
I said to her "The moon is bright
And my fiddles tuned for playing"

Tell me that the night is long
Tell me that the moon is glowing
Fill my glass I'll sing a song
And we'll start the music flowing

Never mind the rising light
There's no sign of day or dawning
In my heart it's still the night
And we'll stay here till the morning

Chorus
Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá,
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin,
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill,
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh.

It's not day nor yet awhile
I can see the starlight shining
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill,
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh.

Fill the glasses one more time
And never heed the empty bottle
Turn the water into wine
And turn the party up full throttle

[Fiddle Solo]

Don't go out into the cold
Where the wind and rain are blowing
For the fire is flaming gold
And in here the music's flowing

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá,
níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin,
níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill,
solas ard atá sa ghealaigh.

Tell me that the night is long
Tell me that the moon is gleaming
Fill my glass, I’ll sing a song
And we'll keep the music streaming
Until all the songs are sung

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá,
níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin,
níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill,
solas ard atá sa ghealaigh.

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá,
níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin,
níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill,
solas ard atá sa ghealaigh.

[Drum Solo]

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá,
níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin,
níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill,
solas ard atá sa ghealaigh.

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá,
níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin,
níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill,
solas ard atá sa ghealaigh.

Irish English
Chuaigh mé isteach i dteach aréir
Is d'iarr mé cairde ar mhnaoi an leanna.
Is é dúirt sí liom "Ní bhfaighidh tú deor.
Buail an bóthar is gabh abhaile
I went into a (public) house last night
And I asked the barwoman for credit
She said to me "You won't get a drop
Hit the road and go home."
Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá,
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin,
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill,
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh.
It's not yet day, it's not my love,
It's not yet day and it won't be 'till morning,
It's not yet day and it won't be yet,
A high light is in the moon.
