Lyrics

Ar tevi

Written By: Marta Ritova/Toms Barons-Lukis

Diezgan pierasti mes abi
Abi sežam, viss it ka labi
Rit dienas un laika ir daudz
Ik pa laikam kads taluma sauc.

Klejo doma – vizija priekša
Tas ko dzirdu – vai laist to iekša?
Nez vai balss, kas tik talu skan,
Bus ta ista un noderes man.

Piedz.
Tik ar tevi but tuvu cik drikst,
Divas sirdis pa pasauli klist,
Trešais manigs, tas mirklis bus iss,
Divas sirdis pa pasauli klist. x2

Pat ja laiks relativs škiet,
Zini reizem gribas man iet,
Reizem skanas vilina loti,
Rodas jautajums – atteikties proti?

Piedz.
Tik ar tevi but tuvu cik drikst,
Divas sirdis pa pasauli klist,
Trešais manigs, tas mirklis bus iss,
Divas sirdis pa pasauli klist. x2

Diezgan pierasti mes abi
Abi sežam, viss it ka labi
Rit dienas un laika ir daudz
Sežu es un tu mans draugs.

I am who I am

I am who I am
I know I’m the best
Don’t care about you
Oh oh oh

I will fight today
I will fight all my life
I know you know I will
Oh oh oh

I will follow my star
It will lead me to the top
I will follow my star
It will lead me to the top

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I am who I am
I know I’m the best
Don’t care about you
Oh oh oh

I will fight today
I will fight all my life
I know you know I will
Oh oh oh

I will follow my star
It will lead me to the top
I will follow my star
It will lead me to the top

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh

I close my eyes and dream, and dream
I open my eyes and see that it is true
I close my eyes and dream, and dream
I open my eyes and see that it is true

I will follow my star
It will lead me to the top
I will follow my star
It will lead me to the top

I will follow my star
It will lead me to the top
It will lead me to the top
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Mainiet vardus

Written By: Marta Ritova/Toms Barons-Lukis

Reizi pa reizei, vardi tik asi,
Skali Tu runa, skali Tu prasi.
Reizi pa reizei, no malas redz skatus,
Negaiss ir bijis, rokas plešs Matus.

Reizi pa reizei, uguns škil atri,
Gaisa dun perkons,vaigi klust sarti.
Reizi pa reizei, gribas but sapni,
Moderna pasaule, nemt – un – attit.

Piedz.:

Mainiet vardus, Tas pasauli mainis.
Redzes aklais cik saulekts ir smaidigs,
Kopa skries, kliegs – Esmu Laimigs.
(Tik) Mainiet vardus Tas pasauli Mainis.

Reizi pa reizi, katram tak škiet,
Sapigs bij duriens, kurš lika kliegt.
Reizi pa reizei, var pazaudet daudz,
Sauciens pec sauciena - mainities sauc.

Piedz.:

Reizi pa reizei atri vist zieds,
Udens ka glabejs - var gadities lieks.(2x)

Piedz.(2x)
