Gaelic lyricsEdit

Dorch an nochd tha'n t-Eilean
Dathan air am fuadach far nam beann
Tha faileas a'tuiteam bhon an Stor
Mar t-fhalt dorch a suabadh do cheann

Horo Mhairi o
Horo Mhairi o
Horo Mhairi o
'S mi 'gad ionndrain ho ro

De math an tobar gun an t-uisge
De math an corp gun cridh'
Nam biodh neart an Stoir 'nam lamhan
Bhiodh sinn le'r cheile's an Eilean a rithis

Horo Mhairi o
Horo Mhairi o
Horo Mhairi o
'S mi 'gad ionndrain ho ro.

'S doch nach fhaigh sinn neamh no beatha eile
Nuair a dhuineas suilean aig deireadh lath
Ach fhuair mi mo neamh an seo's an aite
Far an d'thug thu dhimh do lamh's do cridhe slan

Horo Mhairi o
Horo Mhairi o
Horo Mhairi o
'S mi 'gad ionndrain ho ro.

English translationEdit

There's a darkness on the Island of Skye tonight
The colours are clearing away from the hills
A shadow is falling down from the Storr
Like your dark hair sweeping across your face

Horo Mary o
Horo Mary o
Horo Mary o
I miss you.

What use is the well without water
What use is the body without the heart
If I had the power of this landscape in my hands
We'd be together again on the island

Horo Mary o
Horo Mary o
Horo Mary o
I miss you.

Maybe we will never find a heaven or any other existence
When we finally close our eyes at the end of our days
But I have found my heaven here in this place
Where you gave me your promise and your full heart

Horo Mary o
Horo Mary o
Horo Mary o
I miss you.
