At Eurovision 2010 Alyosha represented Ukraine with the song “Sweet People”. She sang into a super-charged wind machine and finished a very respectable 10th. Now she’s back with a new Russian-language single called “Moyo Serdce” (My Heart). It’s already #1 on most of the Ukrainian music charts!

The lyrics are fab. It’s all about love and the desire to make things right when they’ve gone so wrong. “How the sea forgives sand, I will dissolve in the depth of your eyes”; “Just like the moon I will disappear by morning, leaving just a light on your lips”. Content-wise, Alyosha’s pain reminds of Estonia’s Elina in “Goodbye to Yesterday”.

The music video, which brings that story to life, is sooo worth watching. You see both a conflicted relationship and a barely-dressed Alyosha. But she’s much more than a pretty face: Alyosha is one of the authors of the music and the lyrics.

You can watch the music video and read our English translation of the lyrics below. Don’t forget to share your thoughts about Alyosha’s new material!

My Heart — Alyosha (English lyrics / translation)

How the earth forgives rain,
I will forgive you without haste.
But don’t wait for me anymore,
A soul has flown to the sky.
How the sea forgives sand,
I will dissolve in the depth of your eyes.
Find me between the lines –
I was there but now there’s no me.

Chorus:
It is beating, beating, beating, living,
It is breathing, breathing, breathing and waiting.
Set my heart free and it will forgive you!

It is beating, beating, beating, living,
It is breathing, breathing, breathing and waiting.
Set my heart free and it will forgive you!
My heart! Heart!

How the dawn forgives sunset –
I will forgive, there’s no pain in my soul anymore,
And it’s not our fault
That love is calling us.
Just like the moon I will disappear by morning,
leaving just a light on your lips.

Chorus:
It is beating, beating, beating, living,
It is breathing, breathing, breathing and waiting.
Set my heart free and it will forgive you!

It is beating, beating, beating, living,
It is breathing, breathing, breathing and waiting.
Set my heart free and it will forgive you!

I like Alyosha so much, but i’m tired of listening to Ukrainian songs of her. Sweet people was an amazing entry and desurved the top 10. Ukrainian launguage isn’t stupid, but i can’t connect with the song if i can’t understand the song.

Nice song.. I really like her beautiful expressional voice <3 Alyosha was born just less than 24 hours before me.. It was my birthday when Ukraine won in the Vision of 2004 <3 ————————————————— In 1986 the nuclear disaster of Ukraine's Chernobyl was the worst atomic energy catastrophic accident that has ever occurred in our planet.. There is still big radio active energy in the place there after 29 years.. It will take too long before it fades away.. The Chernobyl disaster caused such pain & sorrow in Ukraine.. Really devastating… Pripyat town that was very near the zero affected… Read more »
