Lyrics

As I leave behind Néidín
It's like purple splashed on green
My soul is strangely fed
Through the winding hills ahead
And she plays a melody
On wind and streams for me

Won't you remember
Won't you remember
Won't you remember me
Won't you remember
Won't you remember
Won't you remember me

And we wind and climb and fall
Like the greatest waltz of all
Float across the floor
Her sweet breath outside the door
And it's time that I was gone
Cross the silver tear

Won't you remember
Won't you remember
Won't you remember me
Won't you remember
Won't you remember
Won't you remember me

As I leave behind Néidín
In the hall where we have been
Rhododendrons in her hair
In the mountain scented air
I still feel her spirit song
Cross the silver tear

Won't you remember
Won't you remember
Won't you remember me
Won't you remember
Won't you remember
Won't you remember me
