Gjon's Tears

Gjon Muharremaj, from Broc in the Canton of Fribourg, has dedicated his heart and soul to music since he was little.

The singer's story began when a childhood rendition of Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling In Love With You moved his grandfather to tears. This provided the inspiration for his stage name, Gjon’s Tears:

“I want to use my music to move people in all sorts of ways, whether it’s joy, sadness or melancholy.”

So impressed was his grandad that he decided to sign Gjon up to a TV talent show in his ancestral home of Albania. This proved to be a smart decision as, at the age of 12, Gjon finished third in Albania’s Got Talent. The next year he went on to reach the semi-finals of Switzerland’s Got Talent, and in 2019 he reached the same stage of The Voice (France).

Off stage, Gjon enjoys reading poetry and is a frequent visitor to theatres and museums. He also has a weakness for antiques, thanks to many flea-market visits with his father, but music has always been his number one passion.

Lyrics of Tout l'Univers

Laisser le vent qui frôle
Sa main sur mon épaule
Le vide dans ma tête
Pas la moindre cachette

C’est l’aube qui décline
Derrière un champ de ruine
Le moment de grandir
Ne pas te retenir


Je vois derrière nous des morceaux de toi
Et ce que la douleur a fait de moi


Tout l'univers
Nos deux coeurs sous la terre
Au milieu des failles où tout éclate
Se trouver au point d’impact
Sans toi


Que deviendront nos souffles
S’ils restent sur le bord ?
Cet amour qui nous tord


Je vois derrière nous des morceaux de toi
Et ce que la douleur a fait de moi

Tout l'univers
Nos deux coeurs sous la terre
Au milieu des failles où tout éclate
Se trouver au point d’impact
Sans toi
Derrière mes paupières
Trouver de l’air


Ah
(Tout l’univers)
(Nos deux coeurs sous la terre)
Au milieu des failles et des ressacs
Nous nous retrouverons au point d’impact
Comment soigner nos coeurs qui éclatent
Tout l’univers
Let the wind brush
His/her hand over my shoulder
The void in my head
Not a single place to hide

The dawn is fading
Behind a field of ruins
It’s time to grow up
Don’t hold yourself back

I see pieces of you behind us
And I see what pain has made of me

The whole universe
Our two hearts under the ground
At the centre of the rifts where everything explodes
Being at the point of impact
Without you

What will happen to our breaths
If they stay on the shore?
This love that wrings us out

I see pieces of you behind us
And I see what pain has made of me

The whole universe
Our two hearts under the ground
At the centre of the rifts where everything explodes
Being at the point of impact
Without you
Behind my eyelids
Get some air

Ah
(The whole universe)
(Our two hearts under the ground)
At the centre of the rifts and the aftershocks
We will meet at the point of impact
How can we heal our exploding hearts
The whole universe
