Eurovision 2010 Greece: Giorgos Alkaios & Friends – Opa!

Γιώργος Αλκαίος & Friends – Ωπα

Ωπα

Ωπα, ωπα

Έκαψα το χθες, νύχτες μου παλιές,
θρύψαλα οι αναμνήσεις έγιναν κι αυτές
Μνήμες και φωνές άδικες ευχές
κι άφησα σε μια γωνία ανοιχτές πληγές

Έκαψα το χθες νύχτες μου παλιές
όνειρα και εφιάλτες ρίχνω στις φωτιές
Δάκρυα καυτά ψέμματα πολλά
μοιάζουν σα βουβή ταινία που δεν βλέπω πια

Ωπα

Βάζω μια φωτιά
σ’όλα τα παλιά
όλα θα τ’αλλάξω
και θα το φωνάξω
περασμένα ξεχασμένα κι όλα απ’την αρχή ξανά

Βάζω μια φωτιά
σ’όλα τα παλιά
όλα θα τ’αλλάξω
και θα το φωνάξω
περασμένα ξεχασμένα κι όλα απ’την αρχή ξανά

Έκαψα το χθες, νύχτες μου παλιές,
κι από το μηδέν αρχίζω όσο κι αν δε θες
Δάκρυα καυτά ψέμματα πολλά
πλήρωσα όσο χρωστούσα και τα δανεικά

Ωπα!

Βάζω μια φωτιά
σ’όλα τα παλιά
όλα θα τ’αλλάξω
και θα το φωνάξω
περασμένα ξεχασμένα κι όλα απ’την αρχή ξανά

Ωπα!

Βάζω μια φωτιά
σ’όλα τα παλιά
όλα θα τ’αλλάξω
και θα το φωνάξω
περασμένα ξεχασμένα κι όλα απ’την αρχή ξανά

Βάζω μια φωτιά
σ’όλα τα παλιά
όλα θα τ’αλλάξω
και θα το φωνάξω
περασμένα ξεχασμένα κι όλα απ’την αρχή ξανά

Ωπα!

English Translation

Opa!

Opa!

Opa, Opa!

I burnt the past, my old nights,
memories also became shivers
Memories and voices unjust wishes
and left open wounds in a corner

I burnt the past, my old nights,
dreams and nightmares I threw in a flames
Hot tears, too many lies
seem like a silent movie that I’m not watching anymore

Opa!

I set on fire
all past events
I’ll change everything
and I will cry out:
the past is forgotten and everything is starting over

I set on fire
all past events
I’ll change everything
and I will cry out:
the past is forgotten and everything is starting over

I burnt the past, my old nights,
and I start from scratch even if you don’t want to
Hot tears, too many lies
I paid what I owed and borrowed

Opa!

I set on fire
all past events
I’ll change everything
and I will cry out:
the past is forgotten and everything is starting over

Opa!

I set on fire
all past events
I’ll change everything
and I will cry out:
the past is forgotten and everything is starting over

I set on fire
all past events
I’ll change everything
and I will cry out:
the past is forgotten and everything is starting over

Opa!

  7. Well done to Greece and the choice of song that it send to Eurovision. I am very pleased that we send a song with Greek/Hellinic lyrics. Of course the song may not be to everybody taste (it happens with all songs), i like it and even though we did not win excellent choice of song and most importantly with Hellinic lyrics. Next year i hope we will continue with Greek/Helinic lyrics. Opa Ellada, Opa Eurovision. We love you George Alkaio. All the best Eugenia.
