Eurovision Countdown: This Year

2014 Israel

Same Heart- Mei Finegold

You fill me up with poisoned love
You fill my soul with sins, but I have learned to grow

And now, too many lies, too many cries
They’re as long as the infinity
I’m starting to rise, don’t need to be criticised
I’m not an animal in captivity

I’m skinning you out, no longer a part
We don’t beat from the same heart
I’m skinning you out, no longer a part
We don’t beat from the same heart
We don’t beat from the same heart

Ata shotek, ani shvuya
Mitoch milim notzra dmama

Zman, lakum bli hashash livchor mehadash
Vehashemesh titgale elay
Dam, boer lo nirdam, hakoach be kam
Hahofesh kvar kore li lesham

Mitoch hadmama el avir lenshima
Lo achsir od peima
Zman lakum velivhor shamaim veor
Lo achsir od peima

You are silent, I am a prisoner
Through our words silence was created.

Time, to rise without fear of making new choices
And then the sun will be revealed
Blood is throbbing not still, the strength in me has awakened
Freedom is already calling

Out of the silence into air I can breathe
Wouldn’t miss a beat again
Time to choose, skies and bright lights
Wouldn’t miss a beat again
