Amaranthine - The word 'amaranthine' is a term meaning 'unfading' or 'everlasting', but also refers to a deep purplish-red colour


"Amaratine" by Enya, lyrics by Roma Ryan

You know when you give your love away

it opens your heart, everything is new.

And you know time will always find a way

to let your heart believe it's true.


Amarantine... Love is.


You know love is everything you say;

a whisper, a word, promises you give.

You feel it in the heartbeat of the day.

You know this is the way love is.


You know love may sometimes make you cry,

so let the tears go, they will flow away,

For you know love will also let you fly

how far a heart can fly away!


You know when love's shining in your eyes

it may be the stars fallen from above.

And you know love is with you when you rise,

for night and day belong to love.


"In the song, amarantine means 'everlasting'. It is a song about love"
