Celtic Woman - Nil Se'n La (2016 Version) Lyrics




Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Walking home one stormy night
With my pockets full silver
I did spy a friendly light
And decided I would enter

Well the woman of the house
Made to serve, she wasn't willing
But she quickly changed her tune
When she saw my silver shilling

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

You are welcome, be our guest
Fill your cup to overflowing
Come right in and take a rest
Sure, where else would you be going

Piper play, the night is young
For the guest we're entertaining
Let us lead the soul in song
And enjoy the time remaining

It's not day, stay a while
See the stars, the sky adorning
Bright the moon that's in the sky
While away the hours 'til morning

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

It's not day, stay a while
See the stars, the sky adorning
Bright the moon that's in the sky
While away the hours 'til morning

Oh how soon the hours passed
And I didn't heed the warning
As they filled the parting glass
With the sun already dawning

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

It's not day, stay a while
See the stars, the sky adorning
Bright the moon that's in the sky
While away the hours 'til morning

What a fool I was to stay
And now I'm in trouble plenty
For the landlord wants his pay
And my pockets, they are empty

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas… ard… atá… sa ghealaigh!

Celtic Woman Nil Se'n La (2016 Version) Comments
  1. Duskflower

    So glad there's a version that doesn't have the "turn the party up full throttle" line, even if it's a little less fun.

  2. schrap72

    Upon listening to this for the second time, I've discovered I really like this version of the song! I can't find a recording of this version (it's not on the CD) but when it's available, I'm definitely going to buy it!

    Josiah Whitesell

    It's on the target deluxe edition in the US.

  3. Juvio Lockser

    I didn't like at first but I grew to like it.

  4. Julie Bee

    “I like the original more” go listen to that one then! Like every Celtic Woman song ever is on YouTube. Also why would you want them to re-record the exact same version? Switching up original songs is awesome! These women’s voices compliment each others so well. I love them 💖

  5. schrap72

    The lyrics are different from the other version but I like it. The original was more lively.

  6. 張庭瑜

    The Tempo is very like driving Rally Racing car in forest.

  7. Susan R. Dunn

    I like this rendtion, maybe even more then the original one. The blend of the voices are pretty!

  8. Bonaventura Leonardo Dharma Putra

    I more like original than this version with the soloist Chloe, Lisa, Alex, And Lynn

  9. Kathryn Arkless

    Sorry but, no, just, no.

  10. Aithe19

    Love the basses/the cellos that are subtly supporting the whole tune. It's not comparable to the old version, because both songs have absolutely different arrangements. The old one fits into the general style the CW had back then. This new version is more compatible with their newest hits.

  11. indigothecat

    This has a dramatic movie opening feel, but I like this version better if for no other reason than they got rid of the stupid line, "turn the party up full throttle" from the original. It was so out of place and always bothered me.

  12. Phoenix2811

    Has anyone managed to find lyrics to this version? I can't seem to find them anywhere.
    I love both versions, both are amazing and enchanting in their own way

  13. Olivia Deloy

    Could someone PLEASE put the lyrics to this? I can't find them anywhere.

  14. michael smith

    the original is better but they did right by not aping the original they have their own style and this is the English version

  15. Martin gardner

    I've met these ladies. for the future I want to hear them do wild mountain thyme on an album

  16. Sarah Danielle

    I saw it live last night.. it was amazing!! <3

  17. Piotrek

    Only chorus is better than old version.

  18. My music Archive

    I like both versions ,but on different levels. This is undoubtedly beautiful,especially the haunting violin parts, but the original one was more in the mood, and more enjoyable. I like that one better, but this is great too.

  19. Veronika Fannon

    I love this version. It is haunting, especially Eabha's voice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DrinkinWaterLike A-Monkey

    Her voice is amazing!

    Shan Manuelle

    My favourite among them, truth be told.

  20. StephanieME 23

    My mouth just about hit the floor! Gorgeous new version of this Celtic Woman classic! Love it!!

  21. terry townsend

    just because they are new does not mean they dont know what they are doing, this is very well done

  22. Monica Nazare

    i like the original version more than this one :/

    BEEP BEEP

    Monica Nazare then go listen to that one

    Florentin

    This is an English Nil sen La!

    Julie Bee

    BEEP BEEP lol right. What a strange/rude thing to say

  23. Shaylyn Ariana Elizabeth Crain

    i like the original better. i wish they had an album with new songs to them like fields of athenry, skye boat song, loch lomond, wild mountain thyme, amd a lot more songs completely in Gaelic Irish and Scottish.

    izzy duffy

    Shaylyn Ariana Elizabeth Crain ask Eabya,,she is the one who could persuade David(yes he is back tg)to change,,she is used to singing such songs in gaelicgh and English,,as is mairead,,and pixie in the fiddle(know her from lots and ct with Michael,,friends now),,u could try through the fans forum as well

    Stacy Koopmann

    izzy duffy David is coming back?!?! Where did you here this?

    Martin gardner

    songs from the heart or emerald

    Murphdawg1 gaming

    I would like to hear them do Fields of Athenry, I know Mairead has done her own version of it which is beautiful.
