Lyrics by: Enya & ROma Ryan

Release Date: October 15, 1988

Many people don’t forget the debut album by Enya. Watermark spread all over the world quickly because Enya showed different ranges of her beautiful voice. The conclusion? People in 80′s loved much more New Age genre.

Watermark included two of her most popular singles: “Storms in Africa” and Orinoco Flow. This last single was released in 1988 as the lead single of this record by reaching the peak position at number one in different countries.

The title of the single has been reason of speculations. Some people have said it is a reference for Orinico river in Venezuela because it appears in the music video. Other people have ensured the title is a reference to Orinoco Studios.

The song was re-released ten years later and it was also known as “Sail Away”, one phrase is repeated in the chorus.

Enya has released nine records between them two compilation albums. “A Day without Rain”  has been her best-selling record which she released in 2000 but it became so popular after 9-11 event.

The artist is currently working in new record.



Orinoco Flow - Enya

let me sail, let me sail, let the orinoco flow,
let me reach, let me beach on the shores of Tripoli.
let me sail, let me sail, let me crash upon your shore,
let me reach, let me beach far beyond the Yellow Sea.
da da, da da, da da, da da, da da

sail away, sail away, sail away
sail away, sail away, sail away
sail away, sail away, sail away
sail away, sail away, sail away

from Bissau to Palau – in the shade of Avalon,
from Fiji to Tiree and the Isles of Ebony,
from Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
from Bali to Cali – far beneath the Coral Sea.

da da, da da, da da, da da, da da

turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up, up adieu
turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up, up adieu
turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up, up adieu

sail away…

from the North to the South, Ebudæ into Khartoum,
from the deep sea of Clouds to the island of the moon,
carry me on the waves to the lands I’ve never been,
carry me on the waves to the lands I’ve never seen.

we can sail, we can sail, with the orinoco flow,
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away
we can steer, we can near with Rob Dickins at the wheel,
we can sigh, say goodbye Ross and his dependencies
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away

we can reach, we can beach on the shores of Tripoli
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away

from Bali to Cali – far beneath the Coral Sea
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away

from Bissau to Palau – in the shade of Avalon
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away

we can reach, we can beach far beyond the Yellow Sea.
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away

from Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away…
