He took me by the hand and got me for a walk
And there he made me look at the stars

You haven’t heard in many countries
About a mother killed her child
Añriet Rolland killed her own one [...]
Track Name: Gwerz Inês

Oa bet lac’het, O! didruez,
Karantez ar Roue
In the year 1355
The King’s beloved one
Has been killed
Track Name: Sekrejoù ar c'hloareg
Gwelloc’h e vefe o skrivañ ‘n em c’halon

It would be better to write them in my heart
There they would stay forever etched
Track Name: Gwerz ar Yougoslavi
Ar vaouezh gozh a lare c'hoazh :
Soñjet 'meus d'am amezegezh ( …)
Bemde 'haen d'evo kafe d'hi zi
Peotramant c'hoazh 'te d'am welet

The old woman also said
I remember my neighbour (…)
I use to go and drink coffee at her place everyday
Track Name: Seizh bloaz
Un den yaouank pa n’eus klevet e oe marv e vestrez
N’em retireras d’ar gouant e-pad ur seizh bloavezh
Hag e pad ar seizh bloez se, na red med pediñ Doue
O soñjal welet e vestrez evel pa oe en he buhez

When the young man heard about the new
He locked himself in a convent for seven years
And for seven years he did nothing but pray to God
To let him see his beloved again as she was while alive
Track Name: My beloved has died
Marv eo ma mestrez, marv eo ma holl fiziañs
Marv ma flijadur ha toud ma holl esperañs

My beloved is dead, my faith is dead,
My joy is dead, and so is all my hope
Track Name: Ar c'hased arc'hant
« En anv Doue ma fried, ne n’it ket war ar mor
An Avel a zo pounner, an noz a zo treitour ! »

In the name of God my beloved, don’t go sailing
The wind is heavy, and the night seems insidious
Track Name: Ur plac'h yaouank ag an Oriant
An Anglezed bonedoù ruz
Emaint dibarket ’barzh ar Poulldu.
Ur plac’h yaouank o deus laeret.

The English with their red hats
Have landed in the Poulldu
And have stolen a young girl
