Elvana Gjata Albania Eurovision 2020

Elvana Gjata will compete with her song “Me tana” in Festivali i Këngës 58, the contest that will decide Albania’s entry for Eurovision 2020. The song title means “With all” in English and the song is an examination of deep feelings of love.

Elvana asks “Who will stop me from giving love?” She is bursting with emotions and is letting them out through her song.

Someone in her life has brought up many different emotions in her. Elvana sings,  “It’s only you/Just because of you/My eyes shine like a million stars”.

“Me tana” is loaded with sensual delights, as Elvana insists, “Stop the time, stop it/So I can go slowly, slowly”. And really, if she’s enjoying something, it’s totally understandable she’d want to slow things down to savour every moment.

Elvana Gjata – “Me tana”

Elvana Gjata – Me Tana Lyrics and English Translation

Original Albanian lyrics

Ti kam fal ty me tana
Me tana, o me tana
Dashni me fal
O kush ka me ma nal?

A ma thua edhe sa
Duhet të pres ty me të pa
Ta di, dua ta di dhe sa
Ti kam fal ty me tana
Me tana, o me tana
Dashni me fal
O kush ka me ma nal
Hey!

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

Shpirt ti më je se shpirtin ma jep
Nëse ti nuk je të gëzoj a kam arsye
Vetëm ti je, vetëm prej teje
Sytë më shkëlqejnë si miliona yje

Kohën ndale ndale
Të shkoj ngadale ndale
O më ngadale ndale
Na na na na na

A ma thua edhe sa
Duhet të pres ty me të pa
Ta di, dua ta di dhe sa
Ti kam fal ty me tana
Me tana, o me tana
Dashni me fal
O kush ka me ma nal
Hey!

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

Shpirt ti më je se shpirtin ma jep
Se ka ditë e netë që buza ime thahet
Harroj botën më mbyt vetmia
Nuk ta bën askush ç’ka të bën dashuria

Kohën ndale ndale
Të shkoj ngadale ndale
O më ngadale ndale
Na na na na na

A ma thua edhe sa
Duhet të pres ty me të pa
Ta di, dua ta di dhe sa
Ti kam fal ty me tana
Me t’tana, o me tana
Dashni me fal
O kush ka me ma nal

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

English translation

I have given you all
You all, oh you all
Oh, who will stop me from giving love?

Oh, can you tell me how much?
Should I wait to see you?
To know
I want to know how much
I have given you all,
You all, oh you all
Oh who will stop me from giving love?
Hey!

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

My soul, you are
Because you give me your soul
If you’re not here, do I have any reason to cheer?
It’s only you
Just because of you
My eyes shine like a million stars

Stop the time, stop it
So I can go slowly, slowly
Oh, slowly slowly
Na na na na na

Oh, can you tell me how much?
Should I wait to see you?
To know
I want to know how much
I have given you all,
You all, oh you all
Oh who will stop me from giving love?
Hey!

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

My soul, you are
Because you give me your soul
Because it’s days and nights that my lips dry out
I forget the world
Loneliness suffocates me
Nothing does what love does to you

Stop the time, stop it.
So I can go slowly, slowly.
Oh, slowly slowly
Na na na na na

Oh, can you tell me how much?
Should I wait to see you?
To know
I want to know how much
I have given you all
You all, oh you all
Oh, who will stop me from giving love?

Elvana’s lyrics are terrible which are translated into English I was expecting something bigger powerful

The song should cut the second repetition of “shpirti im” – it makes the song boring and it doesn’t add any value to the song (the text is meh). Work more on orchestration and make out of the song a great show.

Cry me a river B I A T CH E SSS!
Wiwibloggs did this cuz Elvana is fan favorite here.
And the non-Albanian speaker fans that would like to know the meaning, you’ve been served!
And B E A T CH E SSS, if your nail got broken, stop yelling on our faces!

Alberie should be getting attention too, since she is a former winner of FiK many many years back, before it was their selection for eurovision

we can laugh even more when this is outed in one of the FiK semi’s

juries got good professional taste, and anyone can hear other entries have more authenticity than this americanized, over-fabricated mess

uhh no one in america would listen to this. it’s not a bad song but it’s not in line with today’s taste either, kinda dated, enjoyable still

Btw, as long as we’re doing lyrics, can someone who speaks Albanian explain to me the story/meaning of the song ‘Ajër’?

She is singing to someone telling to him that you are my air, and since you are not here, I’m day-by-day growing up without air.

If there will be no lyric review for Bojken Lako I’m gonna be disappointed, Robyn!

A quick Google translate draft shows that the lyrics and message are way deeper : we walk very fast communicate very easily are we closer? do we feel the same? are you real or virtual is the same in the world today you are a human or a robot it’s not the same where are we going towards the virtual world we are forgetting what a natural need we are building an artificial world no game with signs code we are expressing feelings but our bodies are still natural touched his friend’s face get the aroma and embrace React enter… Read more »

Two articles on one artist in one day. I think we know who Wiwibloggs want to win… In all seriousness, if she wins then fine. I don’t like the song but it’s clear a lot of people do, but what isn’t fair is completely ignoring all the other artists who deserve just as much coverage. It’s happened in Malta too with everyone ignoring the other artists over Destiny. All I ask to Elvana fans is just give the other artists a little bit of attention and if Elvana doesn’t win don’t be mean to the winner just because they aren’t… Read more »

I am Elvanas Fan too but at this point I agree totally with you. Other artists have worked hard on their projects too, that’s why everyone there should be same covered from media. Elvan hes way more views on YouTube as others but that’s only because she has a strong fan base and to be honest the song is very good,but that doesn’t mean that the other song are not good. Era Rusi, Kanita, Arilena, Olta, Kamla etc. They are all high level singers and have very good songs, that’s why I will not be so sure who is going… Read more »

Elvana is starting to get the hate Måns Zelmerlöw got in 2015. A *Eurovision* runaway winner always gets that.

Mr Vanilla Bean

Yeah, such a poor guy. Shame on Il Volo for running away with the televotes and post-Eurovision careers, while he had to catch his breath giving the reprise.

Måns received a lot of hate that’s a fact. But don’t think the reason of this hate could be the same for Elvana :’) She has a good song but in a normal year it can’t even pretend to a top 10.

lmao, at least Mans got to eurovision and won, this Elvana won’t be going to rotterdam for Albania, not by far, when juries have all power in FiK

your typical bland basic love song

Arilena has better lyrics, yet it’s production of Shaj is quite underwhelming, where someone like Dimitrov should have experience by now with ballads, given his success with Proud for North Macedonia

getting overhyped, her song isn’t even a clear stand-out.

She is incredibly talented. They need to hire a good stage director to make her shine even more in Rotterdam.

I can’t quite tell who people here want to win FiK. A lot of inconclusive signs.
