Albania in Junior Eurovision 2021: Anna Gjebrea “Stand By You”

Anna Gjebrea, the young star, is no stranger to the showbiz world in Albania. Her father Ardit Gjebrea is a very popular host and producer, working on the likes of E Diela Shqiptare and Kënga Magjike.

Anna was crowned as the winner of the Albanian National Final, Junior Fest 2021, out of 19 competing songs. Her entry was produced by Adam Watts, Gannin Arnold, Sanni M’Mairura, and the lyrics written by Endi Çuçi and Anna Gjebrea. Adam Watts is a very well known American producer, behind the songs for the Hannah Montana TV series, the Jonas Brothers and Kelly Clarkson.  

What do the “Stand By You” lyrics mean?

“Stand By You” has a very strong message against bullying. Anna stands with all children hurt by bullying, singing “aty do jem të premtoj” (I will be there, I promise).  

The music video continues the message as we see Anna and her friends stand up against the bullies using the mantra — “Be a buddy, not a bully”. 

In an interview with wiwibloggs, Anna tells us that she wants to spread a message to Europe about the negative impacts of bullying – not only to children right now, but also their future selves.

She says: “Bullying is something that happens a lot today, and many many people have experienced it. And I even had some of my friends experience it, and I felt so bad.” She goes on to pinpoint the main message of the song which for her is “Strength is in numbers, we have to get together and stop bullying because it is not good.”

“Stand By You” lyrics — Anna Gjebrea (Albania JESC 2021)

Written and composed by: Adam Watts, Gannin Arnold, Sanni M’Mairura, Endi Çuçi and Anna Gjebrea

Original Albanian text

English translation

Do të jem me ty dhe jo nuk do të lë në balt
Vetëm më kërko dhe un’ aty do jem për pak
Ty të vetmuar s’dua të t’shoh
Jam këtu e ti më beso

Nëse fryma do të mbahet ti duro dhe pak
Do të jem në krah dhe prap’ ne do ja dalim bashkë
Të trishtuar nuk dua të t’shoh
Më ke mike më beso

Jo mos ki frik kudo ti je
Asgjë nuk do na ndali ne
Nëse zemrën ta lëndojn’
Aty do jem të premtoj

Me vete do më kesh
Je me mua ti vetem qesh
Sa her’ do m’kërkosh
Aty do jem të premtoj

Une aty do jem, jem, do të jem,
Une aty do jem, prane teje

Une aty do jem, jem, do të jem,
Premtoj un’ se aty do jem

When the clouds are rolling in
I’ll be the light that shines
You know I’m never far away
Always by your side
Any time you can call my name
I’ll show up for ya’ any day

You and I we got nothing but history
Side to side nothing better than you and me
We are one and we’re standing together
Light it up, yeah, we got forever

Jo mos ki frik kudo ti je
Asgje nuk do na ndali ne
Nese zemren ta lendojne
Aty do jem te premtoj

Me vete do me kesh
Je me mua ti vetem qesh
Sa here do m’kerkosh
Aty do jem te premtoj

Une aty do jem, jem, do te jem,
Une aty do jem, prane teje

Une aty do jem, jem, do te jem,
Premtoj un’ se aty do jem

If someone hurts your heart
And you’re feeling really low
I’ll be there to pick up the pieces
I hope you know that I’ll never let go

You know I’m gonna stand
Stand by you
I’ll never leave your side

No matter what may come your way
Call on me I’ll be here to stay
Every time you’ll know what I’ll do
I promise I’ll stand by you

Me vete do me kesh
Je me mua ti vetem qesh
Sa here do m’kerkosh
Aty do jem te premtoj

Une aty do jem, jem, do te jem,
Une aty do jem, prane teje

Une aty do jem, jem, do te jem,
Premtoj un’ se aty do jem!

I will be with you and no I will not leave you in the mud
Just look for me and I’ll be there for a while
I do not want to see you alone
I am here and you believe me

If the breath will hold you endure and a little
I will be by your side and again we will succeed together
I do not want to see you sad
You are my friend, believe me

No do not be afraid wherever you are
Nothing will stop us
If they hurt the heart ‘

I will be there, I will be, I will be,
I promise I will be there

When the clouds are rolling in

You know I’m never far away
Always by your side
Any time you can call my name
I’ll show up for ya ’any day

You and I we got nothing but history
Side to side nothing better than you and me
We are one and we’re standing together
Light it up, yeah, we got forever

Strong message and with the stage director being the same as Senhit’s last May, this could be good!

The second line says ” I’ll be there in a while” or “I’ll be there soon”

I’m really proud of our entry this year. I hope we do well.
