Hello dear readers of Eurovision Ireland!

Today we continue with our a new series: One Day Love!

Each week we will celebrate one song from Eurovision History. Here, you will find facts like: year, country, artist, title of the song, lyrics (translations when the song is in another language other than English), video, points and placement in the semi-final, final or even national final (if the song only performed at that stage of the competition).

To celebrate Luxembourg’s National Day (June 23rd), this week we have a special guest for our One Day Love!

Year: 1972

Country: Luxembourg

Artist: Vicky Leandros

Title: Après toi

Lyrics:

Après toi

Tu t’en vas
L’amour a pour toi
Le sourire d’une autre
Je voudrais mais ne peux t’en vouloir
Désormais
Tu vas m’oublier
Ce n’est pas de ta faute
Et pourtant tu dois savoir

Qu’après toi
Je ne pourrai plus vivre, non plus vivre
Qu’en souvenir de toi
Après toi
J’aurai les yeux humides
Les mains vides, le c’ur sans joie
Avec toi
J’avais appris à rire
Et mes rires ne viennent que par toi
Après toi je ne serai que l’ombre
De ton ombre
Après toi

Même une jour si je fais ma vie
Si je tiens la promesse
Qui unit peut-être pour toujours
Après toi
Je pourrai peut-être
Donner de ma tendresse
Mais plus rien de mon amour

Après toi
Je ne pourrai plus vivre, non plus vivre
Qu’en souvenir de toi
Après toi
J’aurai les yeux humides
Les mains vides, le c’ur sans joie
Avec toi
J’avais appris à rire
Et mes rires ne viennent que par toi
Après toi je ne serai que l’ombre
De ton ombre
Après toi

Lyrics translation:

AFTER YOU

You go away…

Love has for you

The smile of another girl

I would like but cannot be

angry against you. From now on,

You are going to forget me.

This is not your fault

But, however, you must know

That after you

I will not be able to really live anymore,

I’ll only live remembering you.

After you,

I will have wet eyes,

Empty hands, a heart without joy.

With you,

I had learned how to laugh

And my laughter comes only because of you.

After you, I will be only a shadow…

Of your shadow….

After you…

Even if a day, I live a new life again,

If I hold the promise

Who links two human-beings

(perhaps) forever , After you

I might be able

To give some tenderness

But nothing from my love.

After you

I will not be able to realy live anymore,

I’ll only live remembering you.

After you,

I will have wet eyes,

Empty hands and a heart without joy.

With you,

I had learned how to laugh

And my laughter comes only because of you.

After you, I will be only a shadow…

Of your shadow….

After you…
