Liv

Ma mammig lavar diñ-me
Da b'lec'h a ya gwenn an erc'h pa deuz
Da b'lec'h ya glaz an oabl
Da vare an noz dall diloar
Da b'lec'h a ya glazted ar gwez
Pa beg dorn yén an goañv war 'r maez
Da b'lec'h a ya gwad ruz an den
Skuilhet gant pobloù a bep seurt liv
 
Ma mammig lavar diñ-me
Da b'lec'h a ya mel bev an tan pa varv
Da b'lec'h mouez aour ar galon
Pa n'on n'eus den ebet da garet
Perak eo ken skeduz an douar
E donder melezour an dour
Perak 'kan ken brav spi an den
Bac'het gant e vreur ab'lamour d'e liv
 
Perak 'kan ken brav spi an den
Bac'het gant e vreur ab'lamour d'e liv
 
Ma merc'hig sell ta duhont
Gwenn-erc'h an eon a spoum e glaz an houl
E ruzder tarz-an-deiz
O tont ar garantez foll
An tan an tan a-zian al ludu
O tiwan 'vel an ed en douar
Hag atav ar skeud a zo ken du
Evit an den en deus forzh pe seurt liv.

Colour

Tell me, my mother
Where does the white of the snow go when it melts
Where does the blue of the sky go
At the time of the blind, moonless night
Where does the greenness of the trees go
When the cold hand of winter catches hold of the countryside
Where does the red blood of men go
When it is spilt from people of every colour
 
Tell me, my mother
Where does the living essence of the dying fire go
Where does the golden voice of the heart go
When there is no one at all to love
Why is there such shining on the earth
In the depths of the mirror of water
Why is song of hope so beautiful for the man
Imprisoned by his brother because of his colour
 
Why is the song of hope so beautiful for the man
Imprisoned by his brother because of his colour
 
Look over there my little daughter
Snow-white is the foam and froth and blue is the wave
Red is the glow of daybreak
That comes from crazy love
The fire, the fire is under the ashes
It rises like a seed in the earth
And the shadow is always so black
For the man of any colour.
 
And the shadow is always so black
For the man of any colour.
