Lachlan
I have tidied up the translation a bit.  Here it is:


-Gortoz a ran (Denez Prigent and Lisa Gerrard)
       I'm waiting

Gortozet 'm eus, gortozet pell
E skeud te˝val tourio¨ gell
E skeud te˝val tourio¨ gell

E skeud te˝val an tourio¨ glav
C'hwi am gwelo 'c'hortoz atav
C'hwi am gwelo 'c'hortoz atav

Un deiz a vo 'teuio en-dro
Dreist ar maezio¨, dreist ar morio¨

'Teuio en-dro an avel c'hlas
Da anala˝ va c'halon c'hloaz't

Kaset e vin diouzh e alan
Pell gant ar red, hervez 'deus c'hoant

Hervez 'deus c'hoant pell eus ar bed
Etre ar mor hag ar stered

------


I was waiting, waiting for a long time
In the dark shadow of grey towers
In the dark shadow of grey towers

In the dark shadow of rain towers
You will see me waiting forever
You will see me waiting forever

One day it will come back
Over the lands, over the seas

The blue wind will return
And take back with it my wounded heart

I will be pulled away by its breath
Far away in the stream, wherever it wishes

Wherever it wishes, far away from this world
Between the sea and the stars

Lachlan:

I got together with a native speaker of Breton and we yielded the
following translation:


-Gortoz a ran (Denez Prigent and Lisa Gerrard)
       I'm waiting

Gortozet 'm eus, gortozet pell
E skeud te˝val tourio¨ gell
E skeud te˝val tourio¨ gell

E skeud te˝val an tourio¨ glav
C'hwi am gwelo 'c'hortoz atav
C'hwi am gwelo 'c'hortoz atav

Un deiz a vo 'teuio en-dro
Dreist ar maezio¨, dreist ar morio¨

'Teuio en-dro an avel c'hlas
Da anala˝ va c'halon c'hloaz't

Kaset e vin diouzh e alan
Pell gant ar red, hervez 'deus c'hoant

Hervez 'deus c'hoant pell eus ar bed
Etre ar mor hag ar stered

------


I was waiting, waiting for a long time
In the dark shadow of grey towers
In the dark shadow of grey towers

In the dark shadow of rain towers
You will see me waiting forever
You will see me waiting forever

One day it will come back
Over the lands, over the seas

The blue wind will come back
And bring back with it my wounded heart

I will be pulled away by its breath
Far away by its stream, wherever it wants

Wherever it wants, far away from this world
Between the sea and the stars

I'm Waiting

I was waiting, waiting for a long time
In the dark shadow of grey towers

Over the seas, over the lands
Over the lands, over the seas

I will be pulled away by its blow
Far away by its stream to another land

I will be pulled away by its breath
Far away by its stream, wherever it wants

Wherever it wants, far away from this world
Between the sea and the stars
