Sunrise Number 1 lyrics, our NASA contest winner

Sunrise Number 1

This song was inspired by the photos that this astronaut published from the Spacial International Station, where there’s a new dawn 16 times a day.

It won the NASA Space Rock Contest, and it got played as the wake up music aboard Space Shuttle Endeavor, on its last day of its final mission. 😎

Lyrics

“Sunrise Number 1” by Stormy Mondays
Words and music: Jorge Otero

Time to wake up and see the first sunrise
There’ll be fifteen more
Aurora Borealis lights up the horizon
Clouds swirl below

And we don’t care ‘bout rain or shine
When you’re in space the weather’s fine

Blue blue earthshine against a yellow moonshine
Such a sight to behold
Blood orange sunset fades into night lights
Cities etched in gold

And we don’t care ‘bout rain or shine
When you’re in space the weather’s fine

Soon we’ll sail back to our blue marble
Soon we’ll be getting back to normal

Now we don’t care ‘bout rain or shine
When you’re in space the weather’s fine

Spanish translation

Es hora de despertar y ver el primer amanecer
Habrá quince más
La aurora boreal ilumina el horizonte
Las nubes se arremolinan debajo

Y no nos importa si llueve o si hace sol
Cuando estás en el espacio, siempre hace buen tiempo

El brillo azul, azul de la Tierra, contra el resplandor amarillo de la Luna
Es un espectáculo para la vista
La puesta de sol, en naranja sanguino, se desvanece en luces de ciudad
Ciudades grabadas en oro

Y no nos importa si llueve o si hace sol
Cuando estás en el espacio, siempre hace buen tiempo

Pronto navegaremos de vuelta a nuestra canica azul
Pronto volveremos de nuevo a la normalidad

Pero ahora no nos importa si llueve o si hace sol
Cuando estás en el espacio, siempre hace buen tiempo
