After falling off their high mark in recent years, Greece hopes that Yianna Terzi will turn things in their favour with “Oniro mou”. Due to some issues with their planned national final, the broadcaster ultimately chose Yianna to represent her country without staging a domestic contest.

Just like Demy in Kiev, ERT sends a female solo artist. The song is the first full Greek language entry since Giorgos Alkaois & Friends “OPA” in 2010.”Oniro mou” was written by Aris Kalimeris, Dimitris Stamatiou, Mihalis Papathanasiou and Yianna herself.

Lyrically, the song is an imaginary ‘dialogue’ between Greece and its citizens. Using the ethno pop approach, the song touches on several issues regarding the Greek society. It comes across as very authentic and mysterious. Throughout the three minutes, Yianna showcases her vocal abilities while keeping the unique spirit alive.

Despite their struggles and despite the turmoil, there’s love between lovers — and nation and state. As she sings: “How can I make it clear that I would die for you? I’d give my life for you, the end and the beginning, you are everything…”

You can find the full Oniro mou lyrics below, along with the music video and our reaction.

Oniro mou lyrics — Yianna Terzi

An tha psaksis to vitho mou
Zondanevis t’oniro mou

Pos thes na sou to po
Pos gia sena ego tha pethena
Ti zoi mou tha stin edina

Telos kai arhi, ola ise esi

Giati thelis na m’ allaksis
Kai to ble mou na ksevapsis
An milisis ta vouna mou

Pos thes na sou to po
Pos gia sena ego tha pethena
Ti zoi mou tha stin edina
Telos kai arhi, ola ise esi

Oso ki an pono
Ap’to harti den tha s’esvina
Ti zoi mou tha stin edina
Telos kai arhi, ola ise esi

Oniro Mou (English Translation)

If you look into my depths
you’ll bring my dream to life
And if you look into my heart
I’ll take you into my arms
How can I make it clear
That I would die for you?
I’d give my life for you
The end and the beginning, you are everything

No matter my heartache
I wouldn’t strike you off the map
I’d give my life for you
The end and the beginning, you are everything

Why would you want to change me
And dull my blue?
If you talk to my mountains,
My loneliness will be listening

How can I make it clear
That I would die for you?
I’d give my life for you
The end and the beginning, you are everything

No matter my heartache
I wouldn’t strike you off the map
I’d give my life for you
The end and the beginning, you are everything

How can I make it clear
That I would die for you?
I’d give my life for you
The end and the beginning, you are everything

No matter my heartache
I wouldn’t strike you off the map
I’d give my life for you
The end and the beginning, you are everything

A better translation in English of the Greek lyrics: My Dream If you’ll explore my deep sea, you’ll make my dream come true. And if you look into my heart, I’ll take you into my arms. How do you want me to tell you that I would die for you? I would give my life for you! The end and the beginning, you’re everything to me. No matter how much would I suffer, I wouldn’t erase you off the map. I would give my life for you! The end and the beginning, you’re everything to me. Why do you want… Read more »

Sorry if I have offended anyone. It was meant to be funny and it was taken out of context. I have a lot of respect for her as an artist. I apologise.

Boring ok, everyone has a different taste.. And why pathetic?! That is a comment completely out of topic

Not pathetic at all — just a different flavour. With the right staging it could really be magical and it’s definitely going to be different.

Just want to punch her face and beat her up with that look. Really dislike her music and look forward to her not qualifying.

So hateful with no reason….. Tell your opinion by judging the song, not her face… But it seems that you don’t have something to write about the song and you attack to her.. Plz block this comment.

S.T.F.U @ Purple Mask! You dare to say Love Love Peace Peace when I saw you at Sweden’s article defending Igrosso’s rude behaviour. I know you have been getting trolled and I felt bad for you but now I think you deserve it. Go away and don’t you ever say Love Love Peace Peace!

Don’t be rude to me. We all have opinions, and mine have been corrupted recently. My actual opinion on Benjamin personally is: I don’t know either way, because I haven’t met him. It’s like feigning ignorance, only truer.

Remember that Wiwi took down Benjamin’s reaction video, probably to try to prevent other people from being offended by it. And now people want to see more of it?! Sorry, no I won’t shut the f up. Not now.

I love this song and the depth to the lyrics. Matched with the mystical sound and authenticity it brings to the contest by bravely being performed in its native language. It all works so well together. I like the lyrics “I would die for you. I’d give my life for you, the end and the beginning, you are everything” It reminds me of the Bible the people that gave their life for a cause greater than themselves, and the Alpha and Omega verse in Revelation, as Yianna sings “you are the end and the beginning, you are everything” — Ahh.… Read more »
