OPINION

It’s a nice classic piano ballad and I love that it’s performed in their native language. However, it’s a bit boring and could possibly send people to sleep.

PREDICTION

I very much doubt that this will qualify.

LYRICS

Georgian

Dgheo gadiddi
Tovli gaadne
Visats upro shests’ivda ghamit

Guli skhvisi bednierebit gaakhare

Mze amosvlas ar agvianebs
Sitbos achukebs adamianebs
Da dedamits’a siq’varulit t’rialebs

Skhvisi gaigo, skhvistvis gaigo
Guli ra aris tskhrajer tskhrad tu ar gaiq’o
Skhva q’velaperi, karma ts’aigho
Sheni mkholod is aris, rasats skhvistvis tmob

English

Day – be longer
And melt the snow
To warm up the one, who felt cold in the night
Shine not for me
For us
For us
Make the heart feel joyful for the others’ happiness
 
The sun rises in time
To grant People warmness
And the earth keeps turning with love
 
Let understand the feelings of others share with others
What is the heart if not break into nine pieces to with others
The wind will carry the rest away
You own only what you share
 
Day breaks the night
If I am by your side
Something ends and there Comes a new start
Kindness will live forever on the earth
 
For you
For love
For just one Flash
We go on our way
All is yours what you share
