The Meaning Behind The Song: Ora e jetës by Manjola Nallbani
I am currently listening to the song “Ora e jetës” by Manjola Nallbani, and I must say, it has a profound and emotional impact on me. The lyrics, combined with the melody, create a captivating experience that touches the depths of my soul.
The song begins with an enchanting intro, and then Manjola Nallbani’s mesmerizing voice takes over. The first verse speaks about living in a different time, where a simple hug is missing. It portrays a sense of longing for connection and warmth. The chorus follows, emphasizing the idea that despite the challenges we face, life continues and this world will still exist. It expresses the hope that even if just one person survives, life will prevail.
The second verse carries a message of resilience and rebirth. It highlights how one life may be lost, but another is born, and the world goes on. It reinforces the idea that no matter what happens, we will always be together, facing everything that comes our way.
In the bridge, the captivating melody repeats, further enhancing the emotional atmosphere of the song. It creates a sense of unity and togetherness, reminding us that we are not alone in this journey.
The third verse beautifully portrays the unstoppable nature of time. It symbolizes the pulsating heart that keeps beating, the clock that never stops ticking. It signifies that life goes on, for you and me, forever moving forward.
The song ends with a powerful repetition of the chorus, emphasizing the importance of embracing and cherishing each other. It reflects upon the uncertainty of our path and the need to hold onto love and connection. It’s a reminder that amidst the uncertainties of life, we can find solace in the warmth of a hug and the presence of another human being.
“Ora e jetës” was originally intended to be Manjola Nallbani’s entry into Festivali i Këngës 59, the Albanian national selection for Eurovision 2021. Unfortunately, she had to withdraw due to testing positive for COVID-19. Although the song was deleted from the RTSH channel after her withdrawal, its impact and meaning remain.
As I continue to listen to “Ora e jetës” while working or engaging in various activities, it serves as a reminder of the power of music to touch our souls and unite us. It reminds me that despite the challenges we face, the essence of life lies in our connections with others, our resilience, and our ability to keep moving forward.
