: : Hey Byron, what you hear is Gaelic:

: I thought I read on one of the M.Press pages that some of the lyrics were in an Indian language...and that Wes Studi actually helped Clannad write them. Am I crazy?

: Myrrh

Actually, some of the lyrics are Mohican and some are Cherokee.

The mohican lyrics are printed like this:

The Cherokee lyrics go like this:
"Hale wu' yu ga i sv
Do na dio sv i
Wi ja lo sv
Ha le wu' yu
Do na dlo sv"

This is from the Clannad "Banba" album liner notes. But my point in my original email is that the version on the movie is much different from both the soundtrack version *OR* for the Banba version. After watching it again last night, I believe it is merely the chorus ("No matter where you go I will find you") sung in Cherokee, and then repeated in Mohican. It is just that it was so beautiful when arranged this way -- first you have the English chorus, then the Cherokee, and Last (no pun intended), the Mohican!
