A thousand dreams you gave to me

You held me high you held me high

And all those years you guided me

So I could find my way
  Enya So I Could Find My Way video picture 1 - give this dream
How long your love had sheltered me

You held me high you held me high

A harbour holding back the sea

So I could find my way
  How long your love had sheltered me
So let me give this dream to you

Upon another shore

So let me give this dream to you

Each night and ever more
  Each night and ever more
Yet only time keeps us apart

You held me high you held me high

You're in the shadows of my heart

So I can find my way

You held me high you held me high
  You're in the shadows of my heart
So let me give this dream to you

Upon another shore

So let me give this dream to you

Each night and ever more
  So let me give this dream to you
A thousand dreams you gave to me

You held me high you held me high

And all those years you guided me

So I could find my way

So I could find my way
  A thousand dreams you gave to me
 

Enya's interview, Nov 2, 2015

"So I could find my way', this is a song I dedicated to Nicky's mother. When I moved to Dublin to work with Nicky and Roma, I got to know her very well. Mona was her name and she passed away a few years ago. I got very close to her. On writing the melody, I felt it was appropriate to dedicate the song to her. It's a slow melody, very emotional. This is something that is quite universal when the mother moves on. You think about what she left behind in your life. That's what you'll always remember. What her stories were, what she was hoping for you. It's really that she was hoping you find your way (hence) so I could find my way".





Review

Composed in D major key, So I Could Find My Way, the second track of Dark Sky Island album released on 20 November 2015 on Aigle Music, confirms once again through melodic line and lyrics, Enya's resources for gratitude and universality, the delicacy and profoundness of her huge artistic potential.
