Cursum Perficio, by Enya

Xah Lee, 2010-06-16

“Cursum Perficio” (1988), sung by Enya (Eithne Ní Bhraonáin, b1961)

The lyrics is in Latin, and is written by Roma Ryan.

Here's the lyrics, in Latin, with English translation, from the official site enya.com.

Cursum perficio
Verbum (sat) sapienti
eo plus cupiunt
Quo plus habent, eo plus cupiunt
Post nubila, Phoebus
(in) aeternum
...my journey ends here...
...a word is enough for the wise;
   the more one has, the more he desires...
...after the clouds, the light...  
...forever...

Cursum Perficio, Enya The text shown on the screen is someone's try in putting the sound in English. It's not accurate, but quite funny. I especially like the way where the words “eterna” gets larger and larger.

Love this song. It also reminds me of Elfen Lied (Elven Song).
