…è una canzone che parla di un amore lontano, che si perde tra le pagine del tempo; di quando ancora si combatteva con la spada d’acciaio e si affidavano le proprie speranze e preghiere ai venti. E’ anche la prima ballad che ho imparato e a cui tengo tantissimo.
Il ritornello in gaelico dice...

Corri amore, vieni, vieni da me
Svelto, senza far rumore;
vieni alla porta ed insieme voleremo via.
Possa il mio amore salvarsi,
ed essere per sempre al sicuro.



Siuil a Ruin

I wish I was on a yonder hill
‘Tis there I’d sit and cry my fill
Till every tear would turn a mill
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan.

Siuil, siuil, siuil a ruin
Siuil go sochair agus siuil go ciuin
Siuil go doras agus ealaigh liom
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan

Ill sell my rock, Ill sell my reel
Ill sell my only spinning wheel
to buy my love a sword of steel
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan

Siuil, siuil, siuil a ruin
Siuil go sochair agus siuil go ciuin
Siuil go doras agus ealaigh liom
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan

I'll dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red
and through the streets I’ll beg my bread
until my parents wish me dead.
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan

Siuil, siuil, siuil a ruin
Siuil go sochair agus siuil go ciuin
Siuil go doras agus ealaigh liom
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan

But now my love has gone to France,
to buy his fortune to advance.
If he’er come back, this but a chance.
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan

Siuil, siuil, siuil a ruin
Siuil go sochair agus siuil go ciuin
Siuil go doras agus ealaigh liom
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain
I wish I had my heart again,
And vainly think I'd not complain
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan

Siuil, siuil, siuil a ruin
Siuil go sochair agus siuil go ciuin
Siuil go doras agus ealaigh liom
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan
