Aspro Mavro was the Cypriot entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1987 in Brussels performed by Alexia. An up-tempo song, the lyrics deals with a girl remembering a man she saw on a train but only being able to bring the memory back by playing on the piano.

At the contest, host music director Jo Carlier conducted the entry as Cyprus did not have a conductor in their delegation. The song was performed 17th following Germany and preceding Finland. At the close of voting, it finished in 7th place with 80 points, earning Alexia another top 10 finish to go with the 6th place as part of the group Island in 1981.

She also recorded an English version entitled "Please Me Lover".

Lyrics

Thimame, s' iha protodhi sto treno
Ipes pos thelis na se perimeno
Istera, ihes pia hathi
Psahno yia na vro kati pu mas dheni
Ma mia ikona tora pia mu meni, ne, oh...

Aspro, mavro, onira kano, konda mu pos yirnas
Aspro, mavro, pezo sto piano ki esi hamoyelas
Ke ta pliktra san angizo niotho na peto
Aspro, mavro, onira kano pos tha se ksanadho

To prosopo su vlepo ston kathrefti
Kathos tis niktas en' asteri pefti
Mia evhi, na' maste mazi
To oniro mu zondanevi panda
M' ena tragudhi, mia glikia balanda, ne, oh...

Aspro, mavro, onira kano, konda mu pos yirnas
Aspro, mavro, pezo sto piano ki esi hamoyelas
Ke ta pliktra san angizo niotho na peto
Aspro, mavro, onira kano pos tha se ksanadho

Klino ta matia mu, thelo sto plai su na vretho
Ke san ksipniso pia yinete t' oniro alithino

Aspro, mavro, onira kano, konda mu pos yirnas
Aspro, mavro, pezo sto piano ki esi hamoyelas
Ke ta pliktra san angizo niotho na peto
Aspro, mavro, onira kano pos tha se ksanadho

I remember seeing you on the train
And you said that you wanted me to wait for you
Then you just vanished
I look for something to bring us together
But only a picture is left for me, yeah, oh...

White, black, I dream you are coming back to me
White, black, I play the piano and you smile
And as I touch the key I feel like flying
White, black, I dream I'll see you again

I see your face in the mirror
As a star falls in the night
A wish we'll be together
My dream always comes true
With a song, a sweet ballad, yeah, oh...

White, black, I dream you are coming back to me
White, black, I play the piano and you smile
And as I touch the key I feel like flying
White, black, I dream I'll see you again

I close my eyes, I want to find myself by your side
And as I wake up, my dream comes true

White, black, I dream you are coming back to me
White, black, I play the piano and you smile
And as I touch the key I feel like flying
White, black, I dream I'll see you again
