Grá Faoi Bhláth - Love Blossoms

Grá Faoi Bhláth


Nuair a chonaic mise thusa, scaipna scamaill romham
Leathbhádóir os mo chomhair amach, ar léinseach chiúin
Chas rotha mór an tsaoil, is rug orm athrú treo,
Grá síoraí ‘s é ag seoladh liom, go deo na ndeor.

Curfá
Ó thit mé i ngrá i ngrá i ngrá
i ngach preabadhcroí bhígrá faoi bhláth
‘cuma cén chaoi cén lá cén fáth
ar bhealaí an tsaoil bíonn grá le fáil

Nuair a tháinig páiste chugainn, thosaigh clann ag fás,
Craoibhínúr ar chrann ár ngrá, is é faoi bhláth,
Borradh eile i mo chroí, beatha nua álainn í,
Fréamhaithe go buan i ngort ár nginealaigh
Curfá…Ó thit muid i ngrá i ngrá i ngrá…
Bhí muid sona, bhí muid sásta, ‘sin tháinig tú,
Páistín ag ár bpáiste fhéin, i bpreab na súl,
Réalt a’lonrúromhainn, a gealadh bealach úr,
Ar rotha mór ár gcroí, ghlac tusa stiúir.
Curfá…Ó thit muid i ngrá i ngrá i ngrá…
Tá nithe ann nach dtuigeann muid, sin mar atá,
An tráthúlacht ‘s’n ghreim chomh docht i gcúrsaí grá,
Tá taisce ar an tslí, roimh an mbochtán, roimh an rí,
Níl luach ná lá i ndán do ghrá, go dtéann tú thríd.
Curfá Deireanach
Ag titim i ngrá i ngrá i ngrá, i ngach preabadh croí beidh grá le fáil,
Cuma cén chaoi, cén lá, cén fáth, ar bhealaí an tsaoil beidh grá faoi bhláth.

When you appeared, the fog all cleared, and I could see
That calmer waters lay ahead, where I should be,
Shifting winds that blew steered my heart to you,
We held the helm of harmony, it got us through.

Chorus

I fell in love in love in love,
My heart beating free as love unfurled,
Life is a whirlwind in a world,
Where love blossoms free at every turn.

A child arrived, and ‘we’ became not two but three,
Another branch upon our tree of family,
Joy innate so strong, when new life comes along,
A deep-root starts within the heart, where love belongs.

Chorus
And, we fell in love in love in love/Our hearts beating free as love unfurled...

Our children grew, like years they flew, then you arrived,
Such precious news, this gift of you, child of our child,
Happy hearts renewed ‘n elation they once knew,
Ever pleasures, endless treasures, found in you.

Chorus
We fell in love in love in love/ Our hearts beating free…

So, where is love, when will it come, what year, what day?
Coincidence or providence, it’s hard to say,
Treasure’s there for sure, no matter rich or poor,
Love’s all around, and can be found where it finds you.

Chorus
Falling in love in love in love, all hearts will be free when love unfurls,
Life is a whirlwind in a world, where love blossoms free at every turn.
