You can't translate her lyrics because they aren't even words, just sounds that almost seem to be words. Anyone who knows anything about her knows this. Stop contradicting each other, because if you are claiming that you know what language she is singing in, you're just as wrong as everyone else. It would make sense to delete every translation of a Lisa Gerrard song, or a Dead Can Dance song she was a founding member of the band sung by Lisa, because you can't translate gibberish, and gibberish is all she sings.
Well this has been the funniest thread I have ever read. People see 1 word in their mother tongue and think it's that language, do they not hear the rest of the song that is gibberish? And that imbecile who "confirmed" that Lisa Gerrard is the lead singer of Enya had me in stitches.
Physically it has no meaning but does spiritually as you listen to the song it harness your spirit to the one whom is been praise in the song is highly spiritual.
It's very fitting that so many are claiming they understand or recognise the words. The concept of speaking in tongues is ancient and seen extensively through distinct cultures.
Part of the point is that the speaker speaks to all people regardless of their specific languages, so all people find meaning in it. There's some introspection invoked so any one lister will interpret meaning in it that is specific to them.
So there is a deep level to that. But on a more superficial level, Gerrard probably uses sounds that she has heard from different languages from her own experience that may resemble certain words to different listeners.
I'm not into too much new age BS myself, but don't be too simple about this stuff; it's neither sensicle nor jibberish. I'd find Hebrew or any other sacred language more meaningful than gibberish.
Start a Wiki. I thought I may have cleared this up near the top of this strand of comments and responses comments and responses. It's not a real language- she improvises them Yet it may sound like Greek or Turkish, it is totally made up. Hence the "watching the screen and just singing, and you better be recording when she starts or you'll miss the best stuff.
Now I am filled with the Holy Ghost, that is the promise in the Bible the Church will not talk about, because this secret would mean the fall of the religion. Views Read Edit View history.
