“La Forza” lyrics – Elina Nechayeva (Estonia, Eurovision 2018)


Elina Nechayeva will represent Estonia at Eurovision 2018 with her song “La Forza”. She won the Estonian national final with her bold Italian opera-style song.

Elina was an Eesti Laul newcomer, but she sure isn’t a stranger to the music scene. Born in Tallinn, where she honed her skills in choirs as a child, she graduated with a master’s degree in classical singing from the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater in 2016.

Her Eesti Laul 2018 entry “La Forza” (The Force) was composed by Mihkel Mattisen and Timo Vendt with lyrics, in Italian, written by Elina herself in collaboration with Ksenia Kuchukova. The La Forza lyrics suggest there is a power greater than us — love, light, godliness — that can take us higher, if we only believe.

“La Forza” Lyrics – Elina Nechayeva

Original lyrics

Sai nella notte per me
Una stella c’é
Lei mi rischiara la via
Per l’eternitá
É mia guida
Che non mi lascia mai’

La forza del destino
Volteggiar mi fa
L’ora é vicina di felicitá
É sogno o realtá
Nostra affinita
Sull’ali dell’amore rose

Quando m’en vo per la via
Sempre libera
Vorrei che intorno a noi sia una favola
Nostro amore
Guida a noi sará
Per l’eternitá

English translation

You know in the night for me
A star is there
You clear the way
For eternity
It is my guide
an immensity
That never leaves me

The force of Destiny
Vaulting makes me
The hour is near to happiness
Is it a dream or reality
Our affinity
On the wings of love rising

When I go that way
Always free
I would like it to be a fairy tale around us
Our love
Guide to us
In the infinite
For eternity
