by Enya

Album: Dark Sky Island (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Enya (from Saga magazine): "We've always had elements of nature: 'The Memory of Trees,' 'A Day Without Rain,' Echoes in Rain.' I do a lot of walking and you take that moment. Diamonds on the Water is from one of my walks, when the sun causes the shimmering and the diamonds on the water. It's very visual."
