12Puan: How did you get the idea of participating in Eurovision?

Madame Monsieur: We decided to participate in the Eurovision selection because we wanted carry our song “Mercy” and its message of hope as far as it can go.

12Puan: Can you please tell us about the making of process of mercy? What’s the message you want to tell to people with this song?

Madame Monsieur: On March 21st last year we saw a tweet announcing the news of the birth of a baby girl, Mercy, born in the middle of the sea aboard an SOS Mediterranean rescue boat. The news really touched us very deeply and we wanted to translate this emotion into song. We wrote “Mercy” the same day she was born. It’s not a political song. We’re not giving out lessons to anyone. It’s simply a song full of hope, one that puts a face on the word “migrant”.

Lyrics
Je suis née ce matin
Je m’appelle Mercy
Au milieu de la mer
Entre deux pays, Mercy

C’était un long chemin et
Maman l’a pris
Elle m’avait dans la peau, huit mois et demi
Oh oui, huit mois et demi

On a quitté la maison, c’était la guerre
Sûr qu’elle avait raison, y’avait rien à perdre
Oh non, excepté la vie

Je suis née ce matin
Je m’appelle Mercy
On m’a tendu la main
Et je suis en vie
Je suis tous ces enfants
Que la mer a pris
Je vivrai cent mille ans
Je m’appelle Mercy

Et là devant nos yeux y’avait l’ennemie
Une immensité bleue peut-être infinie
Mais oui, on en connaissait le prix

Surgissant d’une vague, un navire ami
A redonné sa chance à notre survie
C’est là, que j’ai poussé mon premier criJe suis née ce matin
Je m’appelle Mercy
On m’a tendu la main
Et je suis en vie
Je suis tous ces enfants
Que la mer a pris
Je vivrai cent mille ans
Je m’appelle Mercy
Je suis née ce matin
Je m’appelle Mercy

Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci
Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci
Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci
Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci

English Translation
I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
In the middle of the sea
Between two countries, Mercy

It was a long path, and my mother took it
She had me inside her skin, eight months and a half
Oh yes, eight months and a half
We left our home, it was the war
For sure she had a reason, there was nothing to lose
Oh no, nothing but life

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
They offered me a hand
And I’m alive
I am all those children
Who were taken by the sea
I’ll live a hundred thousand years
My name is Mercy

And there in front of our eyes, there was the enemy
A blue immensity, maybe infinite
But yes. we knew the price
Emerging from a wave, there’s a friendly ship
It gave again its luck to our survival
It’s there that I cried for the first time

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
They offered me a hand
And I’m alive
I am all those children
Who were taken by the sea
I’ll live a hundred thousand years
My name is Mercy
I was born this morning
My name is Mercy

Mercy, Mercy, I’m alright, thank you
Mercy, Mercy, I’m alright, thank you
Mercy, Mercy, I’m alright, thank you
Mercy, Mercy, I’m alright, thank you
