Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Enya:
Óir thug sé ordú dá aingil i do thaobh:
Tú a chosaint i do shlite go léir.
Iompróidh siad thú lena lámha
Sula mbuailfeá do chos in aghaidh cloiche.
Satlóidh tú ar an leon is ar an nathair;
Gabhfaidh tú de chosa sa leon óg is sa dragan.
Sinéad:
Young woman with a drink in her hand,
She likes to listen to rock and roll.
She moves with the music 'cause it never gets old.
It's the only thing that never gets old.
Young man in a quiet place.
Got a hawk on his arm.
Loves that bird,
Never does no harm.
It's the only thing that never can do no harm,
Must be the only thing that never can do no harm.
Sun setting on the avenue,
Everyone walks by.
They live their life undercover, being blind,
Ah, being blind,
Oh, being blind.
Enya:
Óir thug sé ordú dá aingil i do thaobh:
Tú a chosaint i do shlite go léir.
Iompróidh siad thú lena lámha
Sula mbuailfeá do chos in aghaidh cloiche.
Satlóidh tú ar an leon is ar an nathair;
Gabhfaidh tú de chosa sa leon óg is sa dragan.
Sinéad:
Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh.
Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh.
Oh, ooh, ah,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh.

Notes

Óir thug sé ordú dá aingil i do thaobh::

Psalm 91:11-13 in Irish Gaelic:
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
The Irish verses are handwritten (by Enya, presumably) in the The Lion and the Cobra liner notes: Compare the liner notes for She Who Dwells and the song "Whomsoever Dwells."
