Τα χέρια ανοιχτά Και κάνω στροφή Δική μου η καρδιά Δική μου η ζωή Τα χέρια ψηλά Και πιάνω το φως Τ’ αστέρια σειρά Μου ανήκει ο ουρανός Το βήμα μου δες Που σκάβει τη γη Στον κόσμο οι καρδιές Χτυπάνε μαζί Το βήμα μικρό Μα ανοίγω φτερά Στον ήλιο πατώ Και φτάνω μακριά My world’s a dance floor My world’s a dance floor Τα χέρια ανοιχτά Και κάνω στροφή Δική μου η καρδιά Δική μου η ζωή Τα χέρια ψηλά Και πιάνω το φως Τ’ αστέρια σειρά Μου ανήκει ο ουρανός Το βήμα μου δες Που σκάβει τη γη Στον κόσμο οι καρδιές Χτυπάνε μαζί Το βήμα μικρό Μα ανοίγω φτερά Στον ήλιο πατώ Και φτάνω μακριά My heart is beating like a drum Feel the rhythm This is who I am! Τα χέρια ανοιχτά Και κάνω στροφή Δική μου η καρδιά Δική μου η ζωή Μην ψάχνεις μακριά Εγώ ειμ’ αυτός Αυτή η φωτιά Αυτός ο χορός!
My hands outstretched And I spin round My heart belongs to me My life belongs to me My hands up And I reach for the light The stars are in line And the sky belongs to me Look at my step Which digs into the ground Around the world Hearts beat together It’s a small step But I open my wings I step on the sun And reach afar… My world is a dance floor My world is a dance floor My hands outstretched And I spin round My heart belongs to me My life belongs to me My hands up And I reach for the light The stars are in line And the sky belongs to me Look at my step Which digs into the ground Around the world Hearts beat together It’s a small step But I open my wings I step on the sun And reach afar… My world is a dance floor My world is a dance floor My heart is beating like a drum Feel the rhythm My heart is beating like a drum Feel the rhythm This is who I am! My hands outstretched And I spin round My heart belongs to me My life belongs to me Don’t search far off This is me This fire This dance…
