🇦🇱 ALBANIA

Song: “Bota Ime”

Performer:  Viola Gjyzeli

Albania is back in Junior Eurovision for their ninth time. This year they send Viola Gjyzeli with a song written by Eriona Rushiti who also wrote the song for Albania’s ESC entry this year. It’s interesting to hear a song with a bluesy feel to it. Viola delivers in the vocals. The thing is unlike the blues, this song doesn’t have a depressing theme to it. Instead the song’s lyrics are about dreaming and wishing for a promising future. It’s very common in Junior Eurovision songs to be about dreaming for the future. That’s one of the many things that being young is about.

JESC Chances::

Except for their fifth-place finish in 2015, it seems like Albania is one of the nations in Junior Eurovision that constantly gets the short end of the stick. They haven’t had a Top 10 finish since and I’m not expecting this song to be the second. Despite the good singing and lyrics of hope, I don’t see this song getting much online votes. I don’t see a bluesy-sounding song scoring well with the young. Also the vocals are good but they don’t grab your attention so much. That might cause a low placing too. Mind you I could be wrong. Last year, I was not a fan of the singing of Albania’s entry and she had the eighth-highest jury points total.

Lyrics “Bota Ime” Viola Gjyzeli

Albanian

Jo jo! Jo jo!
Mos lufto!
E kam unë një botë
E imja është ajo
E vogël është ajo
E mbushur, e mbushur plot

Uuuuu

Ëndërroj
Aty ëndërroj
Aty jam e vertetë
Askush nuk më gjykon
Aty unë rrezikoj
Në vendin tim, jetoj aty, unë

Më lini të jem e vertetë
Të jetoj si dua vet

Refreni
Jooo nuk gaboj
Kur ëndërroj
E them unë çdo deshirë
E them se jam e lirë
Jam e lirë, jam e lirë , jam e lirë

Sa herë ëndërroj
Jo nuk gaboj
Se jam e lirë , në vend të lirë
për çdo dëshirë, cdo dëshirë
uuu
Ëndërroj

…..

Ëndërroj
Aty ëndërroj
Aty jam e vertetë
Askush nuk më gjykon
Aty unë rrezikoj
Në vendin tim, jetoj aty, unë

Më lini të jem e vërtetë
Të jetoj si dua vet

Refreni

…….

Jo, jo mos lufto!

English

No, No! No, No!
Back off!….Don’t fight me!
I’m in my own fairyland
Mine is this world
Tiny, but fully-fledged

Uuuuu

There I muse
My fantasy I build
Feeling real and taking risks
No-one judges me
Live the way I want
Let me be real
In my fairy world!

Refrain

I know, I’m not wrong
When musin’
My wishes I speak out
‘Cause I feel free
I’m free, I’m free, I’m free

Whenever I daydream
I know, I’m not wrong
Cause’ in my fairyland, I feel free
Every wish to fulfill

Uuuuu

I’ve got to follow that dream
There I muse and real I feel
No-one judges me
Taking risks

Live the way I want
In my fairyland
Let me be real!

Refrain

Oh, no. no me! Back off!…..

Don’t fight me!
