OneDayLove – Poland 1994 – Edyta Górniak – To nie ja

Hello dear readers of Eurovision Ireland!

Today we continue with our exciting series: One Day Love!

Each week we celebrate one song from Eurovision History. Here, you can 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).

This week we have a special guest for our One Day Love, and it comes all the way from Poland. Edyta Górniak gave Poland a place on the podium and the best result to this date.

Year: 1994

Country: Poland

Artist: Edyta Górniak

Title: To nie ja

Lyrics:

To nie jaThat’s not me
Świat mój tak zwyczajnyMy world is so common
Pod niebem biało-czarnymUnder a white-black sky
Ludzie są wycięci z szarych stronThe people are cut out of grey pages
Ze środka ksiągFrom the interior of books
  
Piękni są z romansu tłaThey are beautiful from the background romance
Zmęczeni tylko z gazetYou are tired of a newspaper that is cut out
A ja… jestem białą, czystą kartkąAnd I… I’m white, a clean card
Pośród wasAmongst you
  
To nie ja byłam EwąI was not Eve
To nie ja skradłam nieboI had not stolen heaven
Chociaż dosyć mam łezThough I’m tired of tears
Moich łez, tylu łezMy tears, so many tears
Jestem po to, by kochać mnieI’m born to love me
  
To nie ja byłam EwąI was not Eve
To nie ja skradłam nieboI had not stolen heaven
Nie dodawaj mi winDon’t blame it on me once more
To nie ja, to nie jaThat’s not me, that’s not me
Nie ja, jestem EwąNot me, I’m not Eve
  
Niebo wieje chłodemThe sky blows chilly
Piekło kłania się ogniem do stópHell bows deeply with its flames to its feet
A ja… papierowa marionetka, muszę graćAnd I… a marionette of paper, I have to play
  
To nie ja byłam EwąI was not Eve
To nie ja skradłam nieboI had not stolen heaven
Chociaż dosyć mam łezThough I’m tired of tears
Moich łez, tylu łezMy tears, so many tears
Jestem po to by kochaćI was born to love
WiemI know it
  
Zanim w popiół się zmienięBefore I turn to ashes
Chcę być wielkim płomieniemI want to be a big flame
Chcę się wzbić ponad światI want to look down on earth
Hen, ogrzać niebo marzeniemWant to warm up the sky with dreams
  
(To nie ja byłam Ewą)(I was not Eve)
(To nie ja skradłam niebo)(I had not stolen heaven)
No, no, no, no…Yes, yes, yes, yes…
(To nie ja byłam Ewą)(I was not Eve)
(To nie ja skradłam niebo)(I had not stolen heaven)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no…Yeah, yeah, yeah, yes…
