I heard this song in the trailer of Pixar’s upcoming movie Brave. So I searched around the net and found the title and meaning.
This song is a Scottish Gaelic (Gàidhlig) song. The song is beautiful. And if you read the meaning, it’ll be much more.
Below I’ll post the translation. And of course, the link to the original lyrics.
My Love Is On the High Seas
On a quiet evening at the beginning of May When the bat was in the skies I heard a tearful young maiden Singing beneath the shadow of the green branches The sun was setting in the sea And no stars yet graced the sky When the young girl sang sorrowfully "My love is on the high seas"
The night's dew began to fall Each bloom yielding softly to the droplets The wind blew in a fragrant breeze Bringing life and renewal to each field The girl tunefully sang her song Quiet and peaceful like the June dew And this chorus constantly repeated "My love is on the high seas"
Day darkened and the stars shone Setting their course amongst the clouds The maiden sat, burdened by her sadness Her singing could not have been more soothing I moved closer to the young woman Singing of her love sailing on the sea Oh sweet was her sad lament "My love is on the high seas"
The music enticed me Nearer to the brown-haired maiden of the warm eyes And she prayed to the King of Heaven "Protect my love on the high seas" Her heart was breaking with love When I took her by the hand "Wipe your eyes, your love is safe I have returned to you from the high seas."
Ohana Means Family. Family Means Nobody Gets Left Behind, or Forgotten
Because I work in the Stitch Complex of Tomorrowland, my CP family calls each other our Ohana.
At first, it was just a cute thing to say because it stayed within the theming of our area, but now I actually can’t think of a more perfect word to describe us.
We truly are a family. We support each other, giggle together, cry together, make meals together, take road trips together, complain together, everything a family does. I feel like a now have 20 sibilings who just happen to live all over the world (we span from the Unites States, South America, to Australia). I actually don’t know how I ever got this closely attached to people in 4 months and I don’t know how I am going to live without them after this.
