Driving Out                      Driving Out MP3

I´m driving out with Thor today,
High in his wain we roam,
Keeping giantkind at bay,
Protecting mankind´s home.

Making thunder and rainfall,
Flying through stormclouds gray,
I´d love to keep driving forever with him,
But his wain´s rolling away.

Falcon-winged I´m faring,
Soaring at Freya´s pace.
Glistening necklace wearing,
Dazzling is her grace.

Cats are pulling her chariot,
Loping on Mani´s way.
I´d love to keep gazing for ever,
But her wain´s rolling away.

I see Sleipnir´s eight legs prance,
Riding at Odin´s side.
Nine worlds spying at a glance,
Wilder grows the ride.

Over all limits and boundaries,
Faster than stormwind´s fray,
I´d love to keep riding forever with him,
But Sleipnir´s strolling away.

Gullinbursti races fast,
Carrying Frey and me.
Rivers and meadows swirling past,
Flowers blossoming with glee.

Grain is growing behind us,
Golden like Sunna´s ray.
O how I would love to stay at his side,
But his boar´s strolling away.

Getting into my driver´s seat,
Making my engine roar,
Next to me sitting Freya sweet,
In the back are Odin, Frey and Thor.

And I say: "Welcome, Aesir!
Great that you have come by!
My car´s not as fast as your vehicles are,
But we´ll keep rolling for aye!"
