OneDayLove – Armenia 2010 – Eva Rivas – Apricot Stone

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 this time all the way from Armenia. Apricot Stone remains even today a symbolic song about the love that Armenians have for their country.

Year: 2010

Country: Armenia

Artist:  Eva Rivas

Title: Apricot Stone

Lyrics:

Many, many years ago
When I was a little child
Mama told me you should know
Our world is cruel and wild
But to make your way through cold and heat
Love is all that you need

I believed her every word
More than anything I heard
But I was too scared to lose my fun
I began to cry a lot
And she gave me apricots
Kisses of the earth, fruits of the sun

Apricot stone
Hidden in my hand
Given back to me
From the motherland

Apricot stone
I will drop it down
In the frozen ground
Let it, let it make its round

Apricot stone
Hidden in my hand
Given back to me
From the motherland
Apricot Stone

Now I see the Northern stars
Shining brightly in the storm
And I’ve got an avatar
Of my love to keep me warm
Now I’m not afraid of violent winds
They may blow – they can’t win

May the winter stay away
From my harvest night and day
May God bless and keep my cherished fruit
Grow my tree up to the sky
Once I waved my home goodbye
I just want to go back to my roots

Apricot stone
Hidden in my hand
Given back to me
From the motherland

Apricot stone
I will drop it down
In the frozen ground
Let it, let it make its round
Apricot stone
Hidden in my hand
Given back to me
From the motherland

Apricot stone
Hidden in my hand
Given back to me
From the motherland

Apricot Stone
