Original text

I love you
Mon amour, je t’aime
Ti amo
Eu amo-te
Tantas formas de decir te quiero
Y gritarlas por el mundo entero

Me gustaría cada día vivir así
Traer de cada rinconcito algún souvenir
Me gustaría descubrir cada país
Saber sus secretos

Me gustaría bucear en cada mar
Me gustaría hablar la lengua de tu hogar
Y que me cuentes las leyendas que al final
Acaban en cuentos

Aprenderé a soñar en todos los idiomas
Aprenderé a decir

I love you
Mon amour, je t’aime
Ti amo
Eu amo-te
Tantas formas de decir te quiero
Y gritarlas por el mundo entero

Me gustaría que mi viaje de película
Desafiara las leyes de la física
Hoy en la torre Eiffel
Mañana en el Big Ben
Y cada noche en un castillo cenaré pastel

Y subir por los tejados
Tirar confeti por todos lados
Y si queréis venir
Yo os espero aquí
Estáis todos invitados

I love you
Mon amour, je t’aime
Ti amo
Eu amo-te
Tantas formas de decir te quiero
Y gritarlas por el mundo entero

English translation

I love you
My love, I love you
I love you
I love you
So many ways to say “I love you”
And shout them to the whole world

I would like to live every day like this
Bring back a souvenir from every little corner
I would like to discover every country
To know their secrets

I would like to dive into every sea
I would like to speak your home’s language
And for you to tell me the legends that, in the end
Turn into tales

I’ll learn to dream in all languages
I’ll learn to say

I love you
My love, I love you
I love you
I love you
So many ways to say “I love you”
And shout them to the whole world

I would like my movie-like journey
To defy the laws of physics
Today at the Eiffel Tower
Tomorrow at Big Ben
And every night, I’ll have cake for dinner in a castle

I’ll climb on the rooftops
Throw confetti all around
And if you want to come
I’ll be waiting here
You’re all invited

I love you
My love, I love you
I love you
I love you
So many ways to say “I love you”
And shout them to the whole world

This is my winner for JESC 2023. The song is constant fun and joy put into three minutes. Even if most of the chorus is just “I love you” in another language, it’s effective. Besides, it’s not like a kids’ song needs to have insane poetic and lyrical depth. The music video already looked amazing, and I really hope that the staging will be just as joyful, colorful and such. I’ve seen a YouTuber call this entry an early Christmas gift, and I have to agree. This is a clear 10/10 for me and I hope for Sandra to win… Read more »

Very nice, catchy and kid-friendly song!! My favourite this year, Spain really deserves a second win, almost 20 years after its first victory. And i would love to see next year contest in Madrid/Barcelona or Sevilla:)

I haven’t listened to the song yet but the lyrics are nice – age appropriate and meaningful. They really made me think of a world that is more beautiful, kinder and happier.

Much better than last year’s Spanish song. It almost makes me think the junior contest is worth it. I don’t actually like the song, but I am not the target audience, children, and that’s the way it should be.

I’d love jesc to have only kids as members of the jury, and only kids, but as the jury of each countries is made by THREE adults and only TWO kids, some countries often the same, play with that, and bring adult songs performed by kids to please the adults jurors.

It would be cool to know if this contest is watched mainly by kids, by teenagers or by adults. But as the Ebu presents it as a family show, then the adults and the teenagers are welcome too and to please them, to have them engaged during the show it needs more “mature” songs I guess. I don’t agree but the Ebu wants to make the maximum of audience to make the maximum of money so they try to have a line up pleasing everybody. Since 2021 only the more adultish songs of their respective years have won the televote… Read more »

This is one of the songs that is age appropriate to the contest. Simple catchy but plainly child like. Is it the best song in the contest? In my opinion no. Do i dislike it? no, but it fits the criteria of the contest and is sung and performed well (as per video). Potential winner.

It is one of the happiest and most Junior songs on the edition. With a good staging I think it could finish top 3 or even win.

I think it is a great potential winner of Junior Eurovision 2023. It could perfectly be the anthem of the contest

Cute song. They should have had an “I love you” in some other language instead of “mon amour”, it just doesn’t sound right AT ALL. And it’s totally ok to have cake for dinner, it’s just a matter of ingredients. You can make a savoury cake too if you wish to.

“Mon amour, je t’aime” might just be a nod to France as hosts, different and not better than “Ich liebe dich, mein Schatz”.
