Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Rinn ni dhomh innse nach biodh tu dleas I suspected you were going to betray me
Bhuail e m' inntinn iomadach uair It struck my thoughts many times
A d' bhriathran mlseachd mheall mo chrdhsa Your honeyed words deceived my heart
A dh'andeoin ditheadh mo chin Despite my head telling me to condemn
   
Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
An dean thu m' fhgail trth air mhadainn Will you desert me in the early morning
Mar n faileas oidhche ri boillsgeadh grin? As the shadow of night is dispelled by a flash of sunlight?
Is ceann an ltha seo 'm b mi criteach And at the end of the day will I be broken-hearted
Gun ghaol, gun ghire, leam fhin? Without love, without laughter, all alone?
   
Ged fhuair sinn elas air iomadach slas Although we got to know many aspects of joy
Ged bh' ar stras loma ln Although our cup was full
Cha b' e gu ler leat bls mo phgan The taste of my kisses did not satisfy you
Chaidh thu 'n tir air cuid chich You went in pursuit of what belonged to others
   
D ceann iil dhuit is cit an stiir thu? What is your destination and where will you go?
Bheil do dhils' air ite taimh? Do you hope for a restful haven?
Ged tha do chl rium 's deir am shilean Although you have turned from me and I am weeping
Riut bi m' dhrachd ri m' bhe I will love you as long as I live
   
Gun ghaol, gun ghire, leam fhin? Without love, without laughter, all alone?
