About his song, Armanyńnan Qalma, Yerzhan explains: "My song about dreams. If you have difficulties, never lose hope. The whole world will open up for you If you have dreams."

Lyrics of Armanyńnan Qalma

There’s a miracle that comes from above It will help you write your name in the stars When you have a dream you’ll go tirelessly don’t regret and hold it dear only then you’ll find the desire of your heart And if you pursue the dream that’s pure Every soul will root for you Don’t forsake your dream thought it’s harder than it may seem Don’t forsake your dream they are here to see you gleam Don’t forsake your dream Keep on giving it everything Your heart is glowing from within Кей-кезде болмай Сынауға жанды-ай Сәтсіздік ерер қалмай. Арманың сенің жарқ етер атқан таңдай Бар әлем саған жолын ашар Талабың болса таудай Арманнан қалма! Бәрі де орындалғанша! Қанатың сенің талғанша! Бар әлем саған жолын ашар Арманың сенің адал болса! Арманнан қалма! Жұлдызың жарық жанғанша Арманнан қалма! Алатын асу қанша Арманнан қалма! Бәрі де орындалғанша! Қанатың сенің талғанша! Үмітті үзбей аңса!
