Mary Black – As I Leave Behind Neidin lyrics

As I leave behind nйidнn
It's like purple splashed on green
My soul is strangely fed
Through the winding hills ahead
And she plays a melody
On wind and streams for me


Won't you remember
Won't you remember
Won't you remember me
Won't you remember
Won't you remember
Won't you remember me

And we wind and climb and fall
Like the greatest waltz of all
Float across the floor
Her sweet breath outside the door
And it's time that I was gone
Cross the silver tear


As I leave behind nйidнn
In the hall where we have been
Rhododendrons in her hair
In the mountain scented air
I still feel her spirit song
Cross the silver tear

    I was intrigued on seeing the title As I leave behind Néidín on a CD by Mary Black, 'Without the Fanfare'. I do research on names and I wondered if this name followed the recent wide adoption of Irish names by many parents. Maybe, I thought, it's an Irish Gaelic form of Nadine, a name not unfamiliar to people of Scottish background. I don't know but I did find out that Neidin is a place name in southwestern Ireland. In that case the song may be saying adieu to a childhood home in Neidin, and not necessarily to a lover named Neidin.
