An Tiománaí

 

Buailfidh tú le daoine
‘Dhéanfaidh iarracht tú a dhíruí
Treo amháin gan oíche
Agus treo eile gan lá
Buailfidh tú le daoine
‘Dheanfaidh iarracht do threo a rialú
Slí amháin le meallach
Agus slí eile le crá
Tá do mheáchan fhéin le iompar
Do bhóthair fhéin le tógáil
Tusa do anam do chorp ‘s do aigne
‘S má thuigeann tú gur beo tú
Ná scar le sin go héasca
Mar ins an deireadh thiar thall
Is tú fhéin an tiomanaí

Ó tiocfaidh am
Ina scoilteann an bóthar
Cas amháin ar chlé
Agus cas eile ar dheis
Ó tiocfaidh am
Ina mbeidh ortsa roghnú
Idir cas amhán ar chlé
Agus cas eile ar dheis
Nuair a thagann sé bí réidh dhó
Bí cinnte de do fhreagra
Ná seas sinn uaidh
Díreach ar aghaidh, pé slí a thógann tú
Tóg é gan amhras
Mar ins an deireadh thiar thall
Is tú fhéin an tiomanaí

‘S beidh dóchas i chuile éirí na gréine
Ó ach é a roinnt, ó ach é a roinnt
Dóchas i chuile casadh sa bóthar
Ó ach é a roinnt, ó ach é a roinnt
Dóchas i chuile gloine glan uisce
Ó ach é a roinnt, ó ach é a roinnt
Dóchas i chuile buille croíthe
Ó ach é a roinnt, ó ach é a roinnt

‘S’abair cad a dhéanfaimid ag
Snámh in aghaidh na taoide?
Is féidir leat snámh leis
Nó leannacht ina aghaidh
Abair cad a dhéanfaimid ag
Rith in aghaidh na gaoithe?
Is feidir rith leis
Nó rith leat ina hagaidh
Tá do thríú rogha féin ann
Fosca ó na gaoithe, bád ins an fharraige
Agus eitilt sa spéir
Cuir fás ar cúpla síolta
Agus tuigfidh tú gur fiór é
Mar ins an deireadh thiar thall
Is do chroí do chuid comhairle

You will meet with people
Who will try to direct you
One way has no night
The other has no day
You will meet with people
Who will try to rule your way
One with persuasion
Another with torment
You’ve your own weight to lift
Your own road to travel
You, your soul, your body and your mind
If you understand that you’re alive
Don’t let that go too easily
Because at the end of the day
You are the driver

A time will come
When the road splits in two
One to the left turn
And one to the right turn
A time will come
When you’ll have to choose
Between either left turn
And right turn
And when that time comes, be ready
Be sure of your choice
Don’t stand back
Go directly ahead, whichever way you choose
Do it without doubt
Because at the end of the day
You are the driver

And there is hope in every rising sun
Oh but to share it, oh but to share
And there is hope in every turn on the road
Oh but to share it, oh but to share
And there is hope in every clean glass of water
Oh but to share it, oh but to share
And there is hope in every heartbeat
Oh but to share it, oh but to share

So tell what will be
Swimming against the tide?
You can swim with it
Or against it
So tell what will we
Do running against the wind?
You can run with it
Or against it
There is a third option
Shelter from the wind, a boat in the sea
Fly in the sky
Grow a few seeds
And you’ll understand it to be true
That at the end of the day
Your heart is your master
