Lyrics

Debesīs tā lēni, pazaudēti vārdi klejo
Tikai mūsu ēnas, tās neprātīgi dejo
Saule tu vai mēness, es gaidu tevi
Tikai skumjas nenes, tās vairs nenes

Tad atkal vilciens vecās sliedēs ies
Un nakts ar dienu nesatiksies

Diena vai nakts
Kas tagad esam mēs
Uguns vai gaiss
Kas esam tu un es

Diena vai nakts
Kas tagad esam mēs
Uguns vai gaiss
Kas esam tu un es

Debesīs tā lēni pazaudēti sapņi klejo
Tās ir mūsu ēnas, ar vientulību dejo
Katrā saules rietā es gaidu tevi
Nepareizā vietā, kā vienmēr

Tur vilciens atkal vеcās sliedēs ies
Un nakts ar dienu nеsatiksies

Lyrics (English translation)

Its slow, lost words roam the sky
Only our shadows, they dance madly
Sun you or moon, I’m waiting for you
Only sadness does not bring, it no longer brings

Then the train will go on the old tracks again
And night and day will not meet

Day or night
Who we are now
Fire or air
Who are you and me?

Day or night
Who we are now
Fire or air
Who are you and me?

In the sky, its slowly lost dreams roam
These are our shadows, dancing with loneliness
Every sunset I wait for you
In the wrong place, as always

There the train will go on the old rails again
And night and day will not meet
