    Some words sounds like Hebrew but a few people on the net claim that they are not. Here are the lyrics although I'm not sure how accurate the are.


    Artist: Lisa Gerrard
    Song: Now We Are Free

    Anol shalom
    Anol sheh lay konnud de ne um {shaddai}
    Flavum
    Nom de leesh

    Flavne...

    Anol shalom

    Hmm, well, Lisa Gerrard used to be in a band called Dead Can Dance, which was a kind of ambient pop music group with Renaissance or Moorish kind of influences. While some words in the song look like Hebrew, some look like Gaelic, too, and some maybe Egyptian, if I squint hard enough... Which leads me to the conclusion that it's probably mostly gibberish. Some of it is supposed to sound like languages people would recognize - I guess so people can give whatever meaning they want to it - but other parts are simply there to help carry the tune.
