Track Name: Pioneers
PIONEERS

A puzzled cat is striding clumsy
Across the yard with quivering paws
And from above him, down the lantern post
Are falling ragged sea-gull caws

Pioneers
Open-mouthed, with staring eyes
Surprised spectators of enchanting scenes
Who face what’s never seen… before

Now, you as well, have a look above the trees
Leave the roofs of the houses out of sight
Millions of snowflakes are rushing towards you
That’s how some distant places say “hi”
We slowly seem to rise up in the air
Leaving all worries beneath our feet
A majestic horde of rousing fanfares
Accompanies us from far

Pioneers
Open-mouthed, with staring eyes
Surprised spectators of enchanting scenes
The first to face what’s never seen… before

We’re gliding among countless comets and stars
Marses and venuses, suns and moons
A blizzard of stardust that makes your face
Glisten with the cosmic dew

This is the first snow
Snowflakes slide and collide, they dance till they die
The breath-taking meaning of the Universe
Is treasured in short, beautiful whiles

You take my hand gently and I feel your warmth
I see your hair full of little stars
The breath-taking meaning of the Universe
Is treasured in short, beautiful whiles

PIONIERI
(Latvian version of the song “Pioneers”)

Kāds apjucis kaķis neveikli brien
Pār pagalmu, trīcošām ķepām
Un augstāk, laternas galā
Pār viņu izspūrusi kaija kliedz

Pionieri
Mutēm vaļā, acīm lielām
Burvju ainu dalībnieki
Tie redz, kas agrāk redzēts nav
Vēl nav

Nu arī Tu paveries virs kokiem
Atstāj māju jumtus ārpus redzesloka
Sniegpārslu rindas pretī Tev steidz
Tā tālas vietas Tevi sveic
Šķiet, mēs lēni ceļamies gaisā
Visas raizes paliek zem mums
Un mums pievienojas no tālēm
Majestātisks fanfaru pulks

Pionieri
Mutēm vaļā, acīm lielām
Burvju ainu dalībnieki
Tie redz, kas agrāk redzēts nav
Nekad

Tā mēs planējam starp komētām un zvaigznēm
Marsiem, venērām, mēnešiem un saulēm,
Un zvaigžņu putekļu vētras
Ar kosmosa rasu Tavu seju klāj

Tas ir pirmais sniegs
Pārslas lido un saskrienas, tās dejo līdz dziest
Visuma elpu aizraujošā jēga
Ir īsos, skaistos mirkļos slēpta

Tu satver manu roku, un man kļūst silts
Redzu Tev matos simtiem sīkas zvaigznītes mirdz
Visuma elpu aizraujošā jēga
Ir īsos, skaistos mirkļos slēpta
