Enya - China Roses Lyrics




Who can tell me if we have heaven,
Who can say the way it should be;
Moonlight holly, the Sappho Comet,
Angel's tears below a tree.

You talk of the break of morning
As you view the new aurora,
Cloud in crimson, the key of heaven,
One love carved in acajou.

One told me of China Roses,
One a thousand nights and one night,
Earth's last picture, the end of evening
Hue of indigo and blue.

A new moon leads me to
Woods of dreams and I follow.
A new world waits for me;
My dream, my way.

I know that if I have heaven
There is nothing to desire.
Rain and river, a world of wonder
May be paradise to me.

Enya China Roses Comments
  1. Henk de Groot

    Deze muziek wordt vaak gedraaid, c.q. in verband gebracht met Eerste Wereldoorlog-herdenkingen...
    De gedachten gaan dan onwillekeurig (?) uit naar die vaak eindeloos grote dodenakkers
    en monumenten uit die tijd.

  2. arry soebandiyoko

    Enya...you are verry beautiful

  3. Emery Candy

    I agree. Her music is very soothing and uplifting.

    I would I like to trade those 2 - 16th century vampires next door for anyone from the 1800's, before it beyond kills me day after day after day. Of course I always sell myself short in desperation, ...people of earth.

  24. Cristian Messina

    sento tutta la forza del sentimento vero e del passato che mai tornerà, quando da bambini si è ricoperti dall'amore

  25. triplejudy

    The most beautiful song ever written ... just my opinion.

  26. Globalarius Vetokultur

    A true alternate lesser not parallel existence, would just be one... level 6, an equal living kind of immoral but healthier place with any reason to defend itself/live/all its interests. That's turning out like this one, imitating or actually a church. And I'd like it more than kind of if those of us who were still kind of anything worth living were a speck better than hell than prudish fears and assessments for praise, wanting to corrupt the part that is ours, and not curse so many needs... or want to in any diminishing value this way.


    Think of endless uncelebrated reasons - status - in a world crying out from a power vacuum. Just do that if you want to be saved, stop making me tell you in front of Babylon's powers how to treat every god, goddess, or "savior".

  27. susan gorsuch

    so peaceful

  28. Maxpein de Valle

    Is Enya an angel? To give peace in this troubled world...

  36. Saved New Orleans Tile Spinster

    You can kill all harmony and a society with one silver bullet: "regime change". Freezing history - or the regime - can't save it from a helluva then.

    This song has nothing to do with oblivion .
    This song keep transcending the times and moving our hearts deeply . .

    From Tokyo in your imagination .

    Which national are you watching this video ?

    SAMMY LAVRIC

    Sammy, from Romania. Enya is above all artists EVER!

    Shin-i-chi Kozima

    @SAMMY LAVRIC
    Thank-you very much to your wonderful and excellent reply !
    How is your condition and your country ?
    How do you think and know about Japan ?
    We Japanese deeply love Enya,s songs .
    Enya,s songs are the moisture of hearts of urbanities who are tired of the hustle and bustle of the city .
    Take care of each other
    Good luck
    Someday I am looking forward to your country spreading endlessly in my mind .

    SAMMY LAVRIC

    @Shin-i-chi Kozima Thank you for your message! I know, Enya has a lot of fans in Japan. She deserves anyway to have the most fans throughout the world! Unfortunately, in Romania she is very underrated. I listened Enya's music at radio and TV just 5-6 times in the last 20 years in Romania. This can be an explanation why our society and economy is going down! Japan for us is like an other planet, science&fiction. We can't reach your civilization even in 3 centuries! Our politicians are good rather to destroy than to built. Let's come back to Enya. It's wiser. Working in United Kingdom since 2017 I received Enya's music on my device and for me it's a really therapy. I'm a tennis player and I had a terrible pain starting from my spin on my sciatic nerve for 3 years. But last year, in November, I received on my device Enya's music, both instrumental and vocal and 9 months passed without pains. It's not a coincidence as I did nothing else special in this period. Now at least 70% from my music is by Enya. Now, once I left away my pain I have courage to start my professional tennis tournaments. Take care, Sammy.
