Shanee Taylor, traditional Welsh tune ‘Hiraeth am Feirion’
As she walks along the seashore
And the sun meets the horizon
Foaming waves crash into the rocks.
She is dreaming of her true love
She is dreaming of her true love.
Golden light glints on the water
Shiny path that calls her homewards
And her thoughts converge on this one:
She is longing for her true love
Always longing for her true love.
Every breath of salty sea air
And a seagull’s haunting laughter
All affirm that she is alone.
She is yearning for her true love
How she is yearning for her true love.
As she runs into the water
And the current swiftly takes her
She is carried far out to sea
And is merging with her true love
Now she is merging with her true love.
