Isyana – Il sogno

All rights belong to Isyana.
Music and lyrics: Isyana Sarasvati

Question every second when I’m dreaming
I feel it alive
Il sogno

Climbing to the top of Himalaya
I need to survive
All of the scenes keep on playing
Running around in never-ending motion
Is it a sign of what is coming
Either a gift or a burden

Question every second when I’m dreaming
I feel it alive
Blinded by a mist under the moonlight
My vision revives
Il sogno

Il sogno sembra di essere sempre vivo

Marianne Mendt – “Musik”
Music and lyrics: Richard Schönherz, Manuel Rigoni
Place: 16th out of 18 (66 points)

Überall, wo ma hinschaut
Machen die Leit Musik
Oft wird’s verkauft als des, was gar net is

Dann aber wird’s schee einpackt
Mit Liachter obendrauf
Und wird verschickt als Flucht ins Paradies

Net des Liacht, net der Glanz
Net die Show soll die Musik sein
Wie da Wind, wia a Traum
Soll’s die Sprach der Phantasie und Freiheit sein

Die Sprach in der ma reden
Die reicht no lang net aus
Daß ma an andern sagen ka, was ma gespiat

Drum ham ma die Musik gemacht
Was anders wird’s nie sei
Was rundherum ist, macht mi no verwirrt

Net des Liacht, net der Glanz
Net die Show soll die Musik sein
Wie da Wind, wia a Traum
Soll’s die Sprach der Phantasie und Freiheit sein

Net des Liacht, net der Glanz
Net die Show soll die Musik sein
Wie da Wind, wia a Traum
Soll’s die Sprach der Phantasie und Freiheit sein

M’hemmx li jdur l-iżveljarin
Nistenna li jgħaddi l-ħin
Putirjal mimli bit-tama
Ħdejn il-funtana nkun nistenniek

Sabiex moħħi jsib is-serħ
Qalbi tintela’ bil-ferħ
Il fortuna laqqgħatni miegħek
Ħelu d-destin

Marija, Marija, Mari
Ismek fuq fomm kulħadd, isem ferieħ
Marija, Marija, Mari
Bħal ward li jfewwaħ ġnien tant hu sabiħ

Kulur ħaddejk lewn xrar in-nar
Minn ġos-smewwiet l-Anġli ġabu żewġ kwiekeb kbar
Blu, blu, dawk għajnejk sbieħ
Tbissima ta’ mistrieħ
Denja li tkun bint Malta
Marija l-Maltija

M’hemmx li jdur l-iżveljarin
Nistenna li jgħaddi l-ħin
Putirjal mimli bit-tama

FUN FACT: This song, along with the Maltese entry the following year, were the only Maltese Eurovision entries to be sung entirely in Maltese – the first time a Semitic language is heard in the contest’s history. Maltese is the only Semitic language written in the Latin alphabet, and incorporates loanwords from Arabic, French, Italian, and English languages. Most Maltese people today speak English.

Sèverine – “Un banc, un arbre, une rue”
Music: Jean-Pierre Bourtayre
Lyrics: Yves Dessca
Place: 1st out of 18 (128 points; WINNING SONG)

On a tous un banc, un arbre, une rue
Où l’on a bercé nos rêves
On a tous un banc, un arbre, une rue
Une enfance trop brève

Un jour ou l’autre il faut partir
Pour se construire un avenir, un avenir
Et c’est inoubliable instant
Où l’on rend ses habits d’enfant, d’enfant

Chacun s’en va, rempli d’espoir
Sur le chemin qu’il s’est choisi, qu’il s’est choisi
Vers la richesse ou vers la gloire
Pourtant quelle que soit notre vie, notre vie

On a tous un banc, un arbre, une rue
Où l’on a bercé nos rêves
On a tous un banc, un arbre, une rue
Une enfance trop brève

Chacun, dans son coin d’horizon
Ne défend que ses ambitions, ses ambitions
Mais si nous ne partageons rien
Que nous reste-t-il en commun, en commun

On a tous un banc, un arbre, une rue
Où l’on a bercé nos rêves
On a tous un banc, un arbre, une rue
Une enfance trop brève

Lalalalala lalalalalala
Lalala lalala lala

Katja Ebstein – “Diese Welt”
Music: Dieter Zimmermann
Lyrics: Fred Jay
Place: 3rd out of 18 (100 points)

Sternenklare Nächte und die Luft ist wie Jasmin
Flüsse wie Kristall so klar und Wälder saftig grün
Kann es das noch geben oder ist es schon zu spät
Dass für alle überall, dieser Traum noch in Erfüllung geht

Diese Welt, diese Welt
Hat das Leben uns geschenkt
Sie ist dein, sie ist mein
Es ist schön auf ihr
Was werden soll, liegt an dir

Rauch aus tausend Schloten senkt sich über Stadt und Land
Wo noch gestern Kinder warn, bedeckt heut Öl den Strand
In den Düsenriesen fliegen wir dem Morgen zu
Wie wird dieses Morgen sein, sinnlos oder voller Sonnenschein

Diese Welt, diese Welt
Hat das Leben uns geschenkt
Sie ist dein, sie ist mein
Es ist schön auf ihr
Was werden soll, liegt an dir

Diese Welt, diese Welt
Hat das Leben uns geschenkt
Sie ist dein, sie ist mein
Es ist schön auf ihr
Was werden soll, liegt an dir

Und ist sie auch ein Staubkorn nur in der Unendlichkeit
Nur dieser Stern ist unser Stern, die andern sind viel zu weit

Diese Welt, diese Welt
Hat das Leben uns geschenkt
Sie ist dein, sie ist mein
Es ist schön auf ihr
Was werden soll, liegt an dir

Diese Welt, diese Welt
Hat das Leben uns geschenkt
Sie ist dein, sie ist mein
Es ist schön auf ihr
Was werden soll, liegt an dir

Liegt an dir
Liegt an dir

Karina – “En un mundo nuevo”
Music: Rafael Trabucchelli
Lyrics: Tony Luz
Place: 2nd out of 18 (116 points)

Sólo al final de camino
Las cosas claras verás
La razón de vivir
Y el porqué de mil cosas más

Al mirar hacia atrás
Cuando llegues comprenderás

Busca las cosas sencillas
Y encontrarás la verdad
La verdad de ese amor
Lo demás déjalo pasar

Solamente el amor
Con el tiempo no morirá

Al fin del camino se harán realidad
Los sueños que llevas en ti
Si en todo momento en tu caminar
La vida has llenado de amor y verdad

Al fin del camino podrás encontrar
El bien que esperaste sentir
Olvida el pasado, pues no volverá
Conserva el amor que hay en ti

Al fin del camino habrá un despertar
De nuevo volver a vivir
Si en todo momento en tu caminar
La vida has llenado de amor y verdad

Al fin del camino en ti llevarás
La fe y la ilusión de vivir
Tus sueños de siempre se harán realidad
En un mundo nuevo y feliz

Al fin del camino en ti llevarás
La fe y la ilusión de vivir
Tus sueños de siempre se harán realidad
En un mundo nuevo y feliz
En un mundo nuevo y feliz
En un mundo nuevo y feliz

Tus sueños de siempre se harán realidad
Si llenas tu vida de amor y paz
Si llenas tu vida de amor y paz
En un mundo nuevo y feliz

Serge Lama – “Un jardin sur la terre”
Music: Alice Dona
Lyrics: Henri Djian, Jacques Demarny
Place: 10th out of 18 (82 points)

À force de courir pour ne rien découvrir
De n’être aventurier que dans ses souvenirs
Où de faire des voyages comme on fait des affaires
Et perdre sa jeunesse comme on gagne une guerre

On arrive à se dire
Que rien n’est important
Qu’on n’a plus rien à dire
Qu’on a perdu son temps

Un jardin sur la terre, un petit coin perdu
Juste un trompe-misère, un abri, rien de plus
Un jardin sur la terre pour cultiver son coeur
Et prendre à l’éphémère ce qu’il y a de meilleur

Semer en étant sûr que l’on donne la vie
De la graine au bourgeon et de la fleur au fruit
Un jardin sur la terre, un Éden avant l’heure
Un jardin sur la terre, n’est-ce pas le bonheur

À force de vouloir vivre à deux pour la vie
Au point de s’accoupler avec n’importe qui
Ou de faire de son lit plusieurs champs de bataille
Collectionnant les coeurs à défaut de médailles

On arrive à se dire
Que rien n’est important
Qu’on n’a plus rien à dire
Qu’on a perdu son temps

Un jardin sur la terre, un petit coin perdu
Juste un trompe-misère, un abri, rien de plus
Un jardin sur la terre pour cultiver son coeur
Et prendre à l’éphémère ce qu’il y a de meilleur

Semer en étant sûr que l’on donne la vie
De la graine au bourgeon et de la fleur au fruit
Un jardin sur la terre, un Éden avant l’heure
Donnez-moi un jardin sur la terre

Pomme, pomme, pomme d’Api, tapis, tapis rouge
Pomme, pomme, pomme d’Api, moi, je vais croquer la

Pomme, pomme, pomme d’Api, tapis, tapis vert
Pomme, pomme, pomme d’Api, il paraît que dans la
Pomme, pomme, pomme, il y a des tas de pépins
Tant pis, je verrai bien

Oh, c’est la printemps
C’est la printemps et je n’ai pas encore vingt ans

Pomme, pomme, pomme d’Api, tapis, tapis bleu
Bleu, bleu comme le ciel avant de croquer la
Pomme, pomme, pomme d’Api
Je voudrais savoir ce qu’il y a dedans

Est-ce que c’est l’amour, le Prince Charmant
Au milieu des bois qui est caché dans ma
Pomme, pomme, pomme, dis-moi
Est-ce que c’est l’amour, l’amour ou le serpent

Oh, en attendant
C’est la printemps et je n’ai pas encore vingt ans

Pomme, pomme, pomme d’Api, tapis, tapis blanc
Si c’est le serpent, je n’ai pas peur, j’ai ma
Pomme, pomme, pomme dorée
Et j’ai tout l’été pour courir dans les prés

Pomme, pomme, pomme jolie, tapis, tapis gris
Mais si c’est l’amour, je lui dirai tout bas
Viens, viens, viens chez moi
Viens, je t’attendais, viens, je comptais les jours

Oh, c’est la printemps
C’est la printemps et je n’ai pas encore vingt ans

Pomme, pomme, pomme d’Api, tapis, tapis rouge
Pomme, pomme, pomme d’Api, moi, je vais croquer la
Pomme, pomme, pomme, et puis quand j’aurai fini
Je recommencerai

Oh, c’est la printemps
Oh, c’est la printemps

Clodagh Rodgers – “Jack in the box”
Music: John Worsley
Lyrics: David Myers
Place: 4th out of 18 (98 points)

Stop, don’t say you’ll put me down
Love, don’t go away
Drop my feet back on the ground
Open your arms, let me stay

Hold me like you know you should
Don’t leave me on the shelf
Like a doll you throw away
So sad and lonely all by myself

I’m just your jack in the box
You know whenever love knocks
I’m gonna bounce up and down on my spring

A toy used up when it stops
I’m just your jack in the box
Because for your love I’d do anything

Who just keeps my heart around
Loves to pull the strings
You, and when it’s upside down
Look at the way that it swings

I can’t help the way I feel
It’s you and no one else
Comes the tune, but all the soon
I’m just a doll put back on the shelf

I’m just your jack in the box
You know whenever love knocks
I’m gonna bounce up and down on my spring

A toy used up when it stops
I’m just your jack in the box
Because for your love I’d do anything

Lalala lalalala
Lalala lalalala
Lalala lalalala lalala

Lalala lalalala
Lalala lalalala
Lalala lalalala lalala

Hey, hear what I say
You’ll find someday that I walked away from you
So say, I’ve got to stay
And from today it’s love that’s gonna break through

I’m just your jack in the box
You know whenever love knocks
I’m gonna bounce up and down on my spring

A toy used up when it stops
I’m just your jack in the box
Because for your love I’d do anything

Hey hey!

Lyrics: Phil van Cauwenbergh
Place: 14th out of 18 (68 points)

Goeiemorgen, morgen, goeiedag
Goeiemorgen, goeiemorgen
Blij dat ik je weer vanmorgen zag
Goeiemorgen, goeiemorgen

Goeiedag, iedereen
Dank u wel dat ik er weer bij mag lopen
Zingen, dansen

Goeiemorgen, morgen, ik ben blij
Goeiemorgen, goeiemorgen
Want ik mag er immers weeral bij
Goeiemorgen, goeiemorgen

Goeiedag, zonneschijn
Dank u, morgen, dat ik mag zijn

De wereld is een schouwtoneel dat wij bespelen
Voor iedereen zijn luchtkasteel om van te delen
En krijgen we niet al te veel, ‘t kan ons niet schelen
We vinden ook het minste deel sensationeel

Goeiemorgen, morgen, goeiedag
Goeiemorgen, goeiemorgen
Blij dat ik je weer beleven mag
Goeiemorgen, goeiemorgen

Goeiedag, allemaal
Dank u, morgen, voor het onthaal

De wereld is een schouwtoneel dat wij bespelen
Voor iedereen zijn luchtkasteel om van te delen
En krijgen we niet al te veel, ‘t kan ons niet schelen
We vinden ook het minste deel sensationeel

De wereld is een schouwtoneel dat wij bespelen
Voor iedereen zijn luchtkasteel om van te delen
En krijgen we niet al te veel, ‘t kan ons niet schelen
We vinden ook het minste deel sensationeel

FUN FACT: This song was intended to be performed by Nicole and Hugo, who would represent Belgium in 1973 with their song, “Baby, baby”. However, shortly prior to their departure to Dublin for the contest in 1971, Nicole fell ill with jaundice and they were unable to compete. Thus, they were replaced by Lily Castel and Jacques Raymond.

Massimo Ranieri – “L’amore è un attimo”

Lyrics: Giancarlo Bigazzi, Gaetano Savio
Place: 5th out of 18 (91 points)

Ciao, perdono amore mio
Stasera scrivo a te l’ultima lettera
Ne ho strappate mille sai
Perché ti lascerò, ma non so dirtelo

Mai dicevi nascerà
Chi dividerci potrà
L’amore è un attimo, l’amore è un attimo
Però la vita è un vento, forte più di noi

E va, tristezza, va
Per lei c’è un pensiero e una lacrima
Addio, felicità
Vedrai le ferite si chiudono

Chissà se un fiore c’è
La sotto la neve per te

È passato un mese e già
Non mi difendo più dalla malinconia
Il mio solo amico qui
È questo treno che va verso casa mia

Mai dicevi nascerà
Chi dividerci potrà
L’amore è un attimo, l’amore è un attimo
Però la vita è un vento, forte più di noi

E va, tristezza, va
Per lei c’è un pensiero e una lacrima
Addio, felicità
Vedrai le ferite si chiudono

Chissà se un fiore c’è
La sotto la neve per te
Chissà se un fiore c’è
La sotto la neve per te

Family Four – “Vita vidder”
Music and lyrics: Håkan Elmquist
Place: 6th out of 18 (85 points)

Soliga stränder
Gröna vajande palmer
Medelhavsländer
Mörka nätter, varma, sköna

Där vill du leva
Jag her ett annat paradis

Vita vidder, gnistrande skare
Fjäll med snö så långt man kan se
Djupa skogar, vipor och hare
Evig sol som aldrig går ner

Här är min värld
Och den vill jag dela med dig
Om du vill vara vid min sida
Du vill vara vid min sida

Bara vi båda
Förstår varandra, då är världen vår
Sol på en strand
Eller sol över snövitt vinterland

Lummiga vindar
Gör små vågor i sanden
Medelhavs vindar
För var segelbåt mot stranden

Så vill du leva
Jag har ett annat paradis

Snö som virvlar runt mina skidor
Nerför branta hisnande stup
Glida ner för fjällkammens sidor
Ensam mellan himmel och djup

Så’n min värld
Och den vill jag dela med dig
Om du vill vara vid min sida
Du vill vara vid min sida

Bara vi båda
Förstår varandra, då är världen vår

Angela Farrell – “One day love”
Music and lyrics: Donald Martin, Ita Flynn
Place: 11th out of 18 (79 points)

You love for a day
Then you go on your way
Breaking hearts, lonely hearts
Though they want you stay

Then you laugh, how you laugh
When the tears start to fall
Turn your back, one day love
Wave your hand to them all

Yesterday, lovely day
I was yours for a while
In your arms there was peace
As you kissed with a smile

Words of love, empty words
Whispered close to my ear
They were lies, only lies
But I held them so dear

How can you be so deceiving
Why do you injure my pride
Building me up with your promises
Only to throw me aside

How many hearts have you broken
Closing your ears to their cries
How many ties have you cheated and lied
With a look of deceit in your eyes

One day soon, very soon
Deep in love you will fall
And the one that you want
Will not answer your call

So beware and have care
Take advice from a friend
Your kind of love, one day love
Will come to an end

How can you be so deceiving
Why do you injure my pride
Building me up with your promises
Only to throw me aside

How many hearts have you broken
Closing your ears to their cries
How many ties have you cheated and lied
With a look of deceit in your eyes

One day soon, very soon
Deep in love you will fall
And the one that you want
Will not answer your call

So beware and have care
Take advice from a friend
Your kind of love, one day love
Will end

Lyrics: Gerrit den Braber
Place: 6th out of 18 (85 points)

Jij stuurde mij je dromen
Maar dat was niet genoeg
Ik vroeg je zelf te komen
Ik vroeg het veel te vroeg

Verlangen is een bloesem
En bloesem wordt een vrucht
En stormen worden opgebouwd
Uit adem, zucht voor zucht

Jij stuurde mij verhalen
Die las ik veel te vlug
Een snoer met duizend kralen
En nog was jij niet terug

Een vogel trekt naar ‘t zuiden
Precies op uur en dag
En wie geen tranen heeft geplengd
Herkent geen echte lach

Jij komt om mij te warmen
De stip komt dichterbij
Ik voel at haast je armen
Het wachten is voorbij

De tijd bepaalt her ritme
En gaat zijn eigen gang
En iemand die nog vlugger wil
Die maakt het eens zo lang

Music: Nuno Nazareth Fernandes
Lyrics: José Carlos Ary dos Santos
Place: 9th out of 18 (83 points)

Menina de olhar sereno raiando pela manhã
De seio duro e pequeno num coletinho de lã
Menina cheirando a feno casado com hortelã
Menina cheirando a feno casado com hortelã

Menina que no caminho vais pisando formosura
Trazes nos olhos um ninho todo em penas de ternura
Menina de andar de lindo com um ribeiro à cintura
Menina de andar de lindo com um ribeiro à cintura

Menina de saia aos folhos, quem a vê fica lavado
Água de sede dos olhos, pão que não foi amassado
Menina de riso aos molhos, minha seiva de pinheiro
Menina de saia aos folhos, alfazema sem canteiro

Menina de corpo inteiro com tranças de madrugada
Que se levanta primeiro do que a terra alvoroçada
Menina de corpo inteiro com tranças de madrugada
Menina de corpo inteiro com tranças de madrugada

Menina de saia aos folhos, quem a vê fica lavado
Água de sede dos olhos, pão que não foi amassado
Menina de fato novo, Avé Maria da terra
Rosa brava, rosa povo, brisa do alto da serra

Rosa brava, rosa povo, brisa do alto da serra
Rosa brava, rosa povo, brisa do alto da serra
Rosa brava, rosa povo, brisa do alto da serra

Place: 14th out of 18 (68 points)

Još uvijek mislim
Na onu koja tu
Kraj mene već dugo ne spava

A noć je duga
I tamna kao bol
A postelja prazna
I prazan je stol

Ja ne znam gdje živi i da li još zna
Da negdje bez nje još sanjam i ja
Jer drugi je vodi na doleki put
Do zvijezda i dalje, bez mene

U nekom vrtu
I ti si sada ruža
Dok bdijem u noći
Ti znaš da sam tužan

Ne zovi me više, ti znaš da je kraj
Mom putu do zvijezda bez tebe

U drugom vrtu
I ti si sada ruža
Tvoj dječak te sanja
Tvoj dječak je tužan

Markku Aro and Koivistolaiset – “Tie uuteen päivään”
Music and lyrics: Rauno Lehtinen
Place: 8th out of 18 (84 points)

On pala maata ja pala vettä
Ja pala tulta polttavaa
On ihmismieli ja paha kieli
Ei tahdo tulta sammutta

Tuo kaikki miedät uuteen päivään johtaa
Nyt onko syytä surra tulevaa
Kun muita tiellä kulkevia kohtaa
Ja kaikki on niin mukavaa

Nyt sinne uuteen päivään kaikki kulkee
Ja toiset näyttää mistä löytyy tie
Jos kerran silmät huomiselta sulkee
Tie helppo mukanaan jo vie

Maailma valmis jo on
Tieto muutumaton nyt ohjailee
Aika niin mittaamatton
Meitä palveltuaan joku loppunut on

Kun yksi ottaa ja toinen antaa
Ja kolmas huutaa janoissaan
Et tunne heitä ei hekään meitä
Ja samaa tietä kuljetaan

Tuo kaikki miedät uuteen päivään johtaa
Nyt onko syytä surra tulevaa
Kun muita tiellä kulkevia kohtaa
Ja kaikki on niin mukavaa

Nyt sinne uuteen päivään kaikki kulkee
Ja toiset näyttää mistä löytyy tie
Jos kerran silmät huomiselta sulkee
Tie helppo mukanaan jo vie

Nyt sinne uuteen päivään kaikki kulkee
Ja toiset näyttää mistä löytyy tie
Jos kerran silmät huomiselta sulkee
Tie helppo mukanaan jo vie

Hanne Krogh – “Lykken er”
Music and lyrics: Arne Bendiksen
Place: 17th out of 18 (65 points)

Lykken finnes på vår jord
Bare ikke der du tror
Den er ikke penger i banken, tiger på tanken
Lykken er alt du vil

Lykken er et spann med sand
I en liten barnehand
Lykken er en hilsen fra gjengen, frokost på sengen
Lykken er sild i dill

Om du ser deg omkring, tusen ting
Kan gi deg litt av lykken du vill nå
Ja, den finnes der hvor du er
Det er jo bare deg den venter på

Lykken er en gammel hatt
Som din beste venn har hatt
Lykken er en time på badet, varm sjokolade
Lykken er ditt og datt

Lykken er krystallklart vann
Fingrene i solvarm sand
Å få rusle barbent i gresset uten adresse
Lykken er deg og meg

Lykken er å være russ
Og å nå den siste buss
Lykken er blant trærne i parken, hjerter i barken
Lykken er sus og dus

Om du synger en sang, prøv en gang
Å late som om den er lagd til deg
Prøv med denne her, lykken er
Jo noe som du søker på din vei

Lykken er en melketann
I et lite glass med vann
Å få litt tillbake på skatten, slippe inn katten
Lykken er dann og vann

Lykken er jo som en vind
Som et solstreif i ditt sinn
Lykken er hva sangen forteller, små bagateller
Lykken er din og min

Lykken er jo som en vind
Som et solstreif i ditt sinn
Lykken er hva sangen forteller, små bagateller

Hearts of Soul – “Waterman”
Music and lyrics: Pieter Goemans
Place: 7th out of 12 (7 points)

Waterman, ben jij een Waterman
Dan past jouw sterrenbeeld bij mij
Intuitief, heb ik je nu al lief
‘t Is net of jij eenvoudig hoort bij mij

Waterman, mijn teken en talisman
Van nu af aan hoor jij bij mij
Waterman, zachtmoedige Waterman
Mijn liefste man, dat ben jij

Sterrenbeeld, dat niet met harten speelt
Maar mensen helpen wil, altijd
Jij kent gewoon geen ruwe heerserstoon
Jij zoekt altijd naar warme mens’lijkheid

Waterman, mijn teken en talisman
Van nu af aan hoor jij bij mij
Waterman, zachtmoedige Waterman
Mijn liefste man, dat ben jij

Waterman, mijn teken en talisman
Van nu af aan hoor jij bij mij
Waterman, zachtmoedige Waterman
Mijn liefste man, dat ben jij

Die altijd fair bent, altijd trouw en solidair bent
Maar ook vaak zo goedgelovig, en voor slechtheid ietwat dovig
Soms zo ernstig, haast verlegen, maar oneindig toegenegen
Waterman

Henri Dès – “Retour”
Music and lyrics: Henri Dès
Place: 4th out of 12 (8 points)

Toi qui m’attends au moins toutes les nuits
Et moi qui prends le train pour l’Italie
J’y resterai dix jours, ni trop long ni trop court

C’est un peu loin, je sais, mais tiens-toi bien
À mon retour, j’aurai, dans un écrin
Les photographies de mes p’tites amies
Et l’Italie vaudra bien quelques nuits

Papapapapapa papapapapa
Papapapapa, papapapapapa
Papapapapapa papapapapa
Papapapapa, papapapapapa

Toi qui as l’âme soeur mieux qu’une soeur
Et moi qui joue carreau avec ton coeur
Je me fais l’affaire pour les Angleterres

C’est un peu loin, je sais, mais tiens-toi bien
À mon retour, j’aurai, dans un écrin
Deux-trois galipettes et quelques bouclettes
Et ta douleur vaudra bien mon ardeur

Papapapapapa papapapapa
Papapapapa, papapapapapa
Papapapapapa papapapapa
Papapapapa, papapapapapa

Toi qui donnes l’amour mieux qu’une mère
Et moi qui fais le sourd, comme on prend l’air
J’pars à la conquête de toutes les minettes

Ça n’est pas rien, je sais, mais tiens-toi bien
À mon retour, j’aurai, dans un écrin
Une grande expérience, tu peux m’faire confiance
Et notre amour vaudra bien un détour

Papapapapapa papapapapa
Papapapapa, papapapapapa
Papapapapapa papapapapa
Papapapapa, papapapapapa

Toi qui fermes les yeux sur mon absence
Toi qui parles si peu, toi la clémence
Je sais qu’entre toutes, au bout de mes routes

Je garderai pour toi, au fond du coeur
Une place de choix, comme une fleur
Et puis une bagouse, qui f’ra des jalouses
Et ton amour vaudra bien un retour

Papapapapapa papapapapa
Papapapapa, papapapapapa
Papapapapapa papapapapa
Papapapapa, papapapapapa

Gianni Morandi – “Occhi di ragazza”
Music: Lucio Dalla
Lyrics: Sergio Bardotti, Gianfranco Baldazzi
Place: 8th out of 12 (5 points)

Occhi di ragazza, quanti cieli
Quanti mari che m’aspettano
Occhi di ragazza, se vi guardo
Vedo i sogni che farò

Partiremo insieme per un viaggio
Per città che non conosco
Quante primavere che verranno
Che felici ci faranno sono già negli occhi tuoi

Occhi di ragazza, io vi parlo
Coi silenzi dell’amore
E riesco a dire tante cose
Che la bocca non dirà

Quando ti risvegli la mattina
Tutto il sole nei tuoi occhi
Quando si fa notte, nella notte dei tuoi occhi
C’è una luce che mi porta fino a te

Un giorno in loro scoprirò
Quello che tu nasconderai

Occhi di ragazza, questo viaggio
Prima o poi, sarà finito
Una spiaggia vuota senza mare
Io dovrò vedere in voi

Occhi di ragazza, quanto male
Vi farete perdonare
L’acqua di una lacrima d’addio
Sarà l’ultimo regalo che da voi riceverò

L’acqua di una lacrima d’addio
Sarà l’ultimo regalo che da voi riceverò

Pridi, dala ti bom cvet

Pridi, dala ti bom cvet
Odprla bom zate

Cvetela sem zate
Utrgati smeš me le ti

Jean Vallée – “Viens l’oublier”
Music and lyrics: Jean Vallée
Place: 8th out of 12 (5 points)

Un chagrin vient d’apparaître
Un peu de pluie pour tes cils
Quelques larmes viennent de naître
Un peu d’amour qui s’enfuit

Viens l’oublier
Ce garçon te fait trop souvent souffrir
Viens l’effacer
Ce premier amour était mal écrit

Un nuage va disparaître
Un bouquet d’ombres qui s’enfuit
Un soleil vient d’apparaître
Un peu de bleu pour tes cils

Viens l’oublier
Ce garçon te fait trop souvent souffrir
Viens l’effacer
Ce premier amour était mal écrit

Une étoile vient d’apparaître
Un peu de nuit pour tes cils
Une rose vient de naître
Un peu d’amour dans la nuit

Viens l’oublier
Ce garçon te fait trop souvent souffrir
Allez, viens l’effacer
Ce premier amour était mal écrit
Viens

Guy Bonnet – “Marie-Blanche”
Music: Guy Bonnet
Lyrics: André-Pierre Dousset
Place: 4th out of 12 (8 points)

C’est l’heure où des perles de givre se posent
Où chaque feuille se prend pour une rose
Quelque part un oiseau chante quelque chose
Et Marie-Blanche est à moi

Nous sommes là dans une douce quiétude
Nous avons mis fin à notre solitude
Nos corps apprennent de tendres habitudes
Et Marie-Blanche est à moi

Et Marie-Blanche est à moi, et moi, je l’aime
Et Marie-Blanche s’endort près de moi

La neige tombe et le vent lui fait escorte
Tous les étangs sont gelés, oui, mais qu’importe
À l’hiver nous avons fermé notre porte
Et Marie-Blanche est à moi

Et Marie-Blanche est à moi, et moi, je l’aime
Et Marie-Blanche s’endort près de moi

Oh, que le temps lui-même tourne ses pages
Nous resterons là un siècle ou davantage
La ville dort sous l’aile des blancs nuages
Et Marie-Blanche est à moi

Je ne veux rien savoir du reste du monde
La terre ne m’a jamais semblé aussi ronde
Contre mon coeur, il y a sa tête blonde
Et Marie-Blanche est à moi

Mary Hopkins – “Knock knock, who’s there?”
Music and lyrics: John Carter, Geoff Stephens
Place: 2nd out of 12 (26 points)

Tears of rain run down my window pane
I’m on my own again, good evening, sorrow
Sit and dream of how things might have been
And as I close my eyes, I get the strangest feelings

Knock knock, who’s there
Could this be love that’s calling
The door is always open wide

Knock knock, who’s there
Now as the night is falling
Take off your coat and come inside

Climb the stair and then I say a prayer
For someone who could share my situation
But instead, as I lay down my head
I have to leave it all to my imagination

Knock knock, who’s there
Could this be love that’s calling
The door is always open wide

Knock knock, who’s there
Now as the night is falling
Take off your coat and come inside

Lalala lalalala lala
Lalalala lala, lalalalala
Lalala lalalala lala
Lalalala lala, lalalalala

Sit and dream of how things might have been
And as I close my eyes, I get the strangest feelings

Knock knock, who’s there
Could this be love that’s calling
The door is always open wide

Knock knock, who’s there
Now as the night is falling
Take off your coat and come inside

Take off your coat and come inside

David Alexandre Winter – “Je suis tombé du ciel”
Music: Yves de Vriendt
Lyrics: Eddy Marnay
Place: 12th out of 12 (0 points)

Je vivais bien là-haut dans mes nuages
J’avais le coeur et la tête en voyage
Je me croyais tranquille pour longtemps
Pour longtemps

Chaque fois que je regardais la terre
Je la trouvais bien ronde et bien sévère
Je n’avais pas envie de voir les gens
Mais tout à coup, un jour, en te voyant

Je suis tombé du ciel
Pour me pencher sur toi
En arrivant du ciel
Je suis tombé sur toi

Il m’est venu des ailes
En m’approchant de toi
Je suis tombé du ciel
Et je suis fou de joie

Je n’irai plus jamais dans les nuages
Tu es ma ville et tu es mon village
J’ai découvert que le seul paradis
C’est ici

Dieu qu’on s’ennuie quand on plane là-haut
À vivre seul comme un triste pierrot
Quand il suffit de plonger dans tes yeux
Pour naviguer au milieu du ciel bleu

Je suis tombé du ciel
Pour me pencher sur toi
En arrivant du ciel
Je suis tombé sur toi

Il m’est venu des ailes
En m’approchant de toi
Je suis tombé du ciel
Et je suis fou de joie

Lalalalalala
Lalalalalala
Lalalalalala
Et je suis fou de joie

Julio Iglesias – “Gwendolyne”
Music and lyrics: Julio Iglesias
Place: 4th out of 12 (8 points)

Tan dentro de mí conservo el calor
Que me haces sentir conservo tu amor
Tan dentro de mí que aún puedo vivir
Muriendo de amor, muriendo de ti

Como buscan las olas la orilla del mar
Como busca un marino su puerto y su hogar
Yo he buscado en mi alma queriéndote hallar
Y tan sólo encontré mi soledad

Y a pesar que estás lejos, tan lejos de mí
A pesar de otros besos, quizás, Gwendolyne
Aún recuerdes el tiempo de aquel nuestro amor
Aún te acuerdes de mí

Y aún recuerdo aquel ayer cuanto estabas junto a mí
Tú me hablabas del amor, yo aún podía sonreir
Aún recuerdo aquel amor
Y ahora te alejas de mí

Le he pedido al silencio que me hable de ti
He vagado en la noche queriéndote oír
Y al murmullo del viento le he oído decir
Tu nombre, Gwendolyne

Dominique Dussalt – “Marlène”
Music: Eddie Barclay, Jimmy Walter
Lyrics: Henri Djian
Place: 8th out of 12 (5 points)

Une voix grave et nostalgique
Dans mon coeur chante une musique
Musique anachronique

Avec elle, je reviens toujours
À l’époque du soixant dix-huit tours
Rayé et oublié

C’était toi qui charmais, Marlène
Qui troublais, Marlène, c’était toi
Tu n’étais pas pour moi la reine des écrans, Marlène
Mais l’Ange Bleu qu’on n’oubliera jamais

De longs doigts, un fum’ cigarette
Un regard qui n’en finissait pas
Sait pas, sait pas ses bas

Ses bas noirs en Cinérama
Une silhouette en sexyrama, Marlène
Oui, c’est bien toi

Tu souris et je suis Marlène
Les gens crient, “Marlène!” – c’est pour moi
Je rêve d’un escalier de scène comme toi, Marlène
Que je descends langoureusement

Un mètre cinquante avec mes talons
Des cheveux frisés comme un mouton
Oh, quelle désillusion

Je voulais tant lui ressembler
Vous ensorceler, vous ‘Marlèniser’
L’Ange Bleu, pour moi c’est raté

Sie sagte
“Die Liebe, das ist mein Leben”
“Nur auf die bin ich eingestellt”
Non, non, je ne peux pas

“I want you, I love you, darling”
“I’ve got you”
Je ne pourrai jamais, jamais chanter comme ça

Katja Ebstein – “Wunder gibt es immer wieder”
Music: Christian Bruhn
Lyrics: Günter Loose
Place: 3rd out of 12 (12 points)

Vielen Menschen fragen
Was ist Schuld daran
Warum kommt das Glück
Nicht zu mir

Fangen mit dem Leben
Viel zu wenig an
Dabei steht das Glück
Schon von der Tür

Wunder gibt es immer wieder
Heute oder morgen können sie geschehn
Wunder gibt es immer wieder
Wenn sie dir begegnen, musst du sie auch sehn

Viele Menschen suchen
Jeden Tag auf neu
Jemand, der sein Herz
Ihnen gibt

Und wenn sie schön glauben
Er kommt nie vorbei
Finden sie den einen
Der sie liebt

Wunder gibt es immer wieder
Heute oder morgen können sie geschehn
Wunder gibt es immer wieder
Wenn sie dir begegnen, musst du sie auch sehn

Wunder gibt es immer wieder
Heute oder morgen können sie geschehn
Wunder gibt es immer wieder
Wenn sie dir begegnen, musst du sie auch sehn

Dana Rosemary Scallon – “All kinds of everything”
Music and lyrics: Derry Lindsay, Jackie Smith
Place: 1st out of 12 (32 points; WINNING SONG)

Snowdrops and daffodils
Butterflies and bees
Sailboats and fishermen
Things of the sea

Wishing wells, wedding bells
Early morning dew
All kinds of everything
Reminds me of you

Seagulls and aeroplanes
Things of the sky
Winds that go howling
Breezes that sigh

City sights, neon lights
Gray skies or blue
All kinds of everything
Reminds me of you

Summertime, wintertime
Spring and autumn too
Monday, Tuesday, everyday
I think of you

Dances, romances
Things of the night
Sunshine and holidays
Postcards to write

Budding trees, autumn leaves
A snowflake or two
All kinds of everything
Reminds me of you

Summertime, wintertime
Spring and autumn too
Seasons will never change
The way that I love you

Dances, romances
Things of the night
Sunshine and holidays
Postcards to write

Budding trees, autumn leaves
A snowflake or two
All kinds of everything
Reminds me of you

All kinds of everything
Reminds me of you

Romuald – “Catherine”
Music: Paul Mauriat, André Borgioli
Lyrics: André di Fusco
Place: 11th out of 16 (7 points)

Catherine, Catherine
Nous avions dix ans
Souvenez-vous, Catherine
Au jardin d’enfants

Je vous offrais mes tartines
Et mes chocolates
Avec mon coeur, Catherine
Amoureux déjà

Et quand le nuit refermait le jardin
Se brisait mon coeur d’enfant
Vous me laissiez seul avec mon chagrin
Vous rêviez au Prince Charmant

Si je riais, Catherine
J’avais dans le coeur
Bien des rires, Catherine
Tristes comme des pleurs

Où êtes-vous et le Prince Charmant
L’avez-vous découvert enfin
Il y a toujours nos coeurs et nos prénoms
Gravés sur l’arbre du jardin

Catherine, Catherine
Au jardin d’enfants
Catherine, Catherine
Nous avions dix ans

Catherine, Catherine
Je rêve souvent
Devant d’autres, Catherine
Au jardin d’enfants

Catherine, Catherine
Et malgré le temps
Je vous attends, Catherine
Comme avant
Au jardin d’enfants

Lyrics: Aniano Alcade
Place: 1st out of 16 (18 points; WINNING SONG)

Cuántas noches vagando
Por mil caminos sin fin
Cuántas noches callando
Cúanto te quise decir

Una profunda esperanza
Y un eco lejano me hablaba de ti

Desde que llegaste ya no vivo llorando
Vivo cantando, vivo soñando
Sólo quiero que me digas qué está pasando
Estoy temblando de estar junto a ti

Desde que llegaste ya no vivo llorando
Vivo cantando, vivo soñando
Pero me pregunto que tu amor hasta cuándo
Podré guardarlo muy dentro de mí

Desde que llegaste ya no vivo llorando
Vivo cantando, vivo soñando
Sólo quiero que me digas qué está pasando
Que estoy temblando de estar junto a ti

Desde que llegaste ya no vivo llorando
Vivo cantando, vivo soñando
Pero me pregunto que tu amor hasta cuándo
Podré guardarlo muy dentro de mí

Desde que llegaste ya no vivo llorando
Vivo cantando, vivo soñando
Sólo quiero que me digas qué está pasando
Que estoy temblando de estar junto a ti

Que estoy temblando de estar junto a ti
Que estoy temblando de estar junto a ti

Jean Jacques – “Maman, maman”
Music and lyrics: Jo Perrier
Place: 6th out of 16 (11 points)

Maman, maman
J’ai fait un rêve merveilleux
Maman, maman
Et que j’étais devenu grand

Je marchais au pas
Casque, fusil et sac au dos
Dans la lumière d’un matin, le soleil brillaut tout là-haut
Il me suvait comme un copain

Maman, maman
J’ai fait un rêve merveilleux
Maman, maman
Nous étions partis tous les deux

Sur un grand bateau
Tout blanc, flottait pavillon haut
Et moi j’étais le commandant, parti pour les îles du vent
Tu étais fière de moi, maman

Maman, maman
J’ai fait un rêve merveilleux

Mais soudain tout s’arrête de mon rêve d’enfant
Et je vois apparaître la vraie vie des grands
J’ai le temps
J’ai le temps

Maman, maman
J’ai fait un rêve malheureux
Maman, maman
Je te voyais les cheveux blancs

Je veux oublier
Le soldat et le grand bateau
Auprés de toi je veux rester et que Dieu te garde longtemps
Toi, la plus belle des mamans

Maman, maman
Je veux rester encore enfant
Garde-moi près de toi, maman
Garde-moi près de toi, maman

Muriel Day and the Lindsays – “The wages of love”
Music and lyrics: Michael Reade
Place: 7th out of 16 (10 points)

Look before you leap
Right into love, my friend
It cannot be bought
So very cheap, my friend

Love that makes you laugh
Love that makes you cry
Before you really understand it
It can make you live, it can make you die

There will be bridges to be crossed
And there’ll be teardrops to be lost
Or you will have to pay the cost
Just wait and see, oh yeah

There are many rainbows on the way
Days are maybe bright or maybe gray
So when you fall in love, you pay the wages of love
The wages of love, the wages of love

Just take my advice
Don’t be a fool, my friend
When you fall in love
You go to school, my friend

Lessons must get learned
Fingers must get burned
Before you really understand it
Love is very nice if you pay the price

There will be bridges to be crossed
And there’ll be teardrops to be lost
Or you will have to pay the cost
Just wait and see, oh yeah

There are many rainbows on the way
Days are maybe bright or maybe gray
So when you fall in love, you pay the wages of love
The wages of love, the wages of love

There will be bridges to be crossed
And there’ll be teardrops to be lost
Or you will have to pay the cost
Just wait and see, oh yeah

There are many rainbows on the way
Days are maybe bright or maybe gray
So when you fall in love, you pay the wages of love
The wages of love, the wages of love

Music: Piero Soffici
Lyrics: Carlo Daiano
Place: 13th out of 16 (5 points)

Il nostro cuore, dicevi sempre
Non è una stanza che si affita
Noi ci lasciamo, la stanza è vuota
La porta aperta resterà

Due grosse lacrime bianche
Come due perle del mare
È tutto quello che a me rimane di te

D’amore, no, non si muore
Per non sentir la tua voce
La testa sotto il cuscino io nasconderò

Come un lampo che apre il cielo
Ho visto chiaro in mezzo al buio
Solo d’amore, no, non si umore
Ridendo, me l’hai detto tu

Due grosse lacrime bianche
Come due perle del mare
È tutto quello che a me rimane di te

Due grosse lacrime bianche
Che non faranno rumore
Perchè le ultime sai non pesano mai

Lyrics: Peter Warne
Place: 1st out of 16 (18 points; WINNING SONG)

Come closer, come closer and listen
The beat of my heart keeps on missing
I notice it most when we’re kissing
Come closer and love me tonight
That’s right
Come closer and cuddle me tight

My heart goes boom bang-a-bang, boom bang-a-bang when you are near
Boom bang-a-bang, boom bang-a-bang, loud in my ear
Pounding away, pounding away, won’t you be mine
Boom bang-a-bang-bang all the time

It’s such a lovely feeling
When I’m in your arms
Don’t go away, I wanna stay my whole life through
Boom bang-a-bang-bang close to you

Your smile is so warm and inviting
The thought of your kiss is exciting
So hold me and don’t keep me waiting
Come closer and love me tonight
That’s right
Come closer and cuddle me tight

My heart goes boom bang-a-bang, boom bang-a-bang when you are near
Boom bang-a-bang, boom bang-a-bang, loud in my ear
Pounding away, pounding away, won’t you be mine
Boom bang-a-bang-bang all the time

It’s such a lovely feeling
When I’m in your arms
Now you are near, I wanna hear your heartbeat too
Boom bang-a-bang-bang, I love you

It’s such a lovely feeling
When I’m in your arms
Now you are near, I wanna hear your heartbeat too
Boom bang-a-bang-bang

Lenny Kuhr – “De troubadour”
Music: Lenny Kuhr
Lyrics: David Hartsema
Place: 1st out of 16 (18 points; WINNING SONG)

Hij zat zo boordevol muziek
Hij zong voor groot en klein publiek
Hij maakte blij melancholiek
De troubadour

Voor ridders in de hoge zaal
Zong hij een stoere, sterke taal
Een lang en bloederig verhaal
De troubadour

Maar ook het werkvolk uit de schuur
Hoorde zijn lied vol avontuur
Hoorde bij het nachtelijk keukenvuur
De troubadour, de troubadour

En in de herberg van de stad
Zong hij een drinklied op het nat
Voor wie nog staan kon en wie zat
De troubadour, de troubadour

Lalalala lala lajlala lajlala
Lalala lajlalala
Lalalala lala lajlala lajlala
Lalala lajlalala

Hij zong in een klooster stil zijn lied
Van een mirakel dat geschiedt
Ook als geen mens het wonder ziet
De troubadour

Van vrouwen in fluweel of grijs
Zong hij de harten van de wijs
Zijn liefdeslied ging mee op reis
De troubadour

Hij zong voor boeren op het land
Een kerelslied van eigen hand
Hij was van elke rang en stand
De troubadour, de troubadour

Zo zong hij heel zijn leven lang
Zijn eigen lied, zijn eigen zang
Toch gaat de dood gewoon zijn gang
De troubadour, de troubadour

Toen werd het stil, het lied was uit
Enkel wat modder tot besluit
Maar wie getroost werd door zijn lied
Vergeet hem niet

Want hij zat zo boordevol muziek
Hij zong voor groot en klein publiek
Hij maakte blij, melancholiek
De troubadour

Oh, lalalala lala lajlala lajlala
Lalala lajlalala
Lalalala lala lajlala lajlala
Lalala lajlalala

Oh, lalalala lala lajlala lajlala
Lalala lajlalala
Lalalala lala lajlala lajlala
Lalala lajlalala

Tommy Körberg – “Judy, min vän”
Music: Roger Wallis
Lyrics: Britt Lindeborg
Place: 9th out of 16 (8 points)

Judy, min vän, vad du är tankfull
Varför, Judy, min vän
Judy, min vän, du är tyst och sorgsen
Varför, Judy, min vän

Börjar du inse nu
Att vi båda, jag och du
Kanske aldrig kan bli lyckliga tillsammans
Judy, min vän

Judy, min vän, du älskar saker
Villa, TV och bil
Din väg är kantad av lyx och prylar
Det är inte min stil

Våra mönster går isär
Låt mig säga det så här
Jag kan aldrig bli den man som du behöver
Judy, min vän

Hurdan är jag, låt mig förklara
Lever för stunden, en drömmare bara
Detta är min filosofi
Jag vill jämt känna, jag är fri

Judy, min vän, din dröm om pengar
Tycks mig liten och trång
Min dröm är drömmen om gröna ängar
Vindens lek och en sång

Kanske jag ändrar mig
Då hörs jag av
Då ska jag presentera mig
Som din Mister Medel-Svensson

Judy, min vän, här går vår korsväg
Kanske ses vi igen
Då får vi se vad livet har gjort med oss
Judy, min vän

Hurdan är jag, låt mig förklara
Lever för stunden, en drömmare bara
Detta är min filosofi
Jag vill jämt känna, jag är fri

Judy, min vän, här går vår korsväg
Kanske ses vi igen
Då får vi se vad livet har gjort med oss
Judy, min vän

Judy, min vän
Judy, min vän

Lyrics: Phil van Cauwenbergh
Place: 7th out of 16 (10 points)

Londen-stad lag stil te dromen in de zon
Van zee te dromen in de zon rondom mij
Waar ik ging langsheen de zomen van ‘t gazon
Stonden de bomen in de zon er zalig bij

En toen kwam jij, Jennifer Jennings
En danste lief als de lente voorbij
Jij kwam, Jennifer Jennings
En blauwe ogen, die lachten naar mij
Naar mij, alleen naar mij

Jij hebt min toen meegenomen door de stad
Langsheen de dromen die je had, zacht als zij
En sindsdien keren m’n dromen telkens weer
Naar al die dromen van weleer van jou en mij

En dan kom jij, Jennifer Jennings
Zo fris en speels als de liefde, zo blij
Want jij, Jennifer Jennings
Je bent precies wat ik droomde voor mij

Ja, dan kom jij, Jennifer Jennings
En blauwe ogen, die lachen naar mij
Maar jij, Jennifer Jennings
Je danste telkens en telkens voorbij
Voorbij, altijd voorbij

Steeds weer voorbij
Hopeloos voorbij

Lyrics: Jack Stark
Place: 5th out of 16 (13 points)

Bonjour, bonjour, es ist schön dich mal wiederzusehen
Bonjour, bonjour, grade heut’ scheint die Sonne so schön
An deiner Hand, durch die Stadt zu geh’n, das wünsch’ ich mir nur
Bonjour, bonjour

Der Himmel lacht wie mein Herz, wenn du lieb zu mir bist
Es blühen Blumen, wo sonst nur der Straßenstaub ist
Ein Vogel singt für uns beide in Moll und in Dur
Bonjour, bonjour

Die Welt ist wunderbar
Sie kann nicht schöner sein
Und sie gehört nur den Verliebten allein

Bonjour, bonjour, es ist schön, dich mal wiederzusehen
Bonjour, bonjour, nur bei dir scheint die Sonne so schön
Was ich erlebe mit dir, das ist alles l’amour
Bonjour, bonjour

“Bonjour, bonjour,” sagen alle, die dich und mich seh’n
Bonjour, bonjour, schlägt die Uhr und für uns bleibt sie steh’n
Gleich zieht ein Denkmal den Hut, darauf warte ich nur
Bonjour, bonjour

Die Welt ist wunderbar
Sie kann nicht schöner sein
Und sie gehört nur den Verliebten allein

“Bonjour, bonjour,” sagt das Glück, und es kommt zu uns zwei’n
In deinen Armen flieg’ ich in den Himmel hinein
Wenn ich auch weiß’, für mich bleibt nach der glücklichen Zeit
Nur Einsamkeit

Bonsoir, bonsoir, es war schön dich mal wiederzusehen
Fällt’s mir auch schwer, so verliebt auseinander zugehen
Ich träum’ von dir, bis du kommst und dann sage ich nur
“Bonjour, bonjour”

Oj, oj, oj, så glad jeg skal bli
Når ikke lenger han har noen på si’
Oj, oj, oj, da skal det bli fest
Og jeg skal være den eneste gjest

Oj, oj, oj, så glad jeg skal bli
Når jeg kan slippe konkurrentene fri
Oj, oj, oj, alene med deg
Ja, det et toppen av livet for meg

Jeg har verdens kjekkeste kar
Den saken er klar
Men han har for stor appetitt
På mini-invitt

Han flyr etter Eva, Lise og Anne
Og boltrer seg vilt som fisken i vannet
Men hver gang han legger på svøm
Så har jeg en inderlig drøm

Oj, oj, oj, så glad jeg skal bli
Når ikke lenger han har noen på si’
Oj, oj, oj, da skal det bli fest
Og jeg skal være den eneste gjest

Oj, oj, oj, så glad jeg skal bli
Når jeg kan slippe konkurrentene fri
Oj, oj, oj, alene med deg
Ja, det et toppen av livet for meg

Primaballerina, Primaballerina
Kleine Porzellanfigur, warum bist du allein
Primaballerina, Primaballerina
Tanz auf deiner Spieluhr und musst immer einsam sein

Primaballerina, Primaballerina
Primaballerina, deine Welt ist die Musik
Primaballerina, Primaballerina
Dreh dich zu dem Glockenspiel im Tanz – da liegt dein Glück

Du bist schön in deinem weissen Kleid
Du musst dich drehn, aber nie zu zweit
Sag, weint dein Herz
Wenn die Nachtigall ihr Lied von ihrem Liebsten singt

Lalala

Sag, weint dein Herz
Wenn die Nachtigall ihr Lied von ihrem Liebsten singt

Primaballerina, Primaballerina
Kleine Porzellanfigur, noch nie hast du gelacht
Primaballerina, Primaballerina
Wer hat dich verzaubert und ins Märchenland gebracht

Du bist schön in deinem weissen Kleid
Du musst dich drehn, aber nie zu zweit
Sag, weinst du nicht
Wenn das Mondlicht sich im Lächeln der Verliebten bricht

Lalala

Un jour se lèvera
Sur trois branches de lilas
Qu’un enfant regardera
Comme un livre d’images

Le monde autour de lui
Sera vide et c’est ainsi
Qu’il inventera la vie
A sa première page

En dessinant
La forme d’une orange
Il donnera
Au ciel son premier soleil

En dessinant l’oiseau
Il inventera la fleur
En cherchant le bruit de l’eau
Il entendra le cri du coeur

En dessinant
Les branches d’une étoile
Il trouvera l’enfant
Le chemin des grands

Des grands qui ont gardé
Un regard émerveillé
Pour les fruits de chaque jour
Et pour les roses de l’amour

Kuin eilispäivää ollutkaan ei ois
Nyt luokses tulla saan kuin silloin ennen
Ja tiedän, etten lähde koskaan pois

Silmät loistaa sun, vain sen, en enempää mä nää
Sydän toistaa mun, sen minkä livertää
Tuo sinirinta satakieli

Kaikki taas on niin kuin silloin ennen
Ja toivoa en muuta enää vois

Kuin silloin ennen, silloin ennen

What’s Hot, K-Pop?: What if Oh My Girl were the first brand ambassadors of Lux Botanicals from South Korea?

Hi, guys!

As a Miracle for almost two years now, I’ve always had an imagination if all-visual girl group Oh My Girl became brand ambassadors of popular brands, and if they represented Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest. Currently, youngest member (maknae) Arin has been contracted by many brands across the Land of the Morning Calm to become their brand ambassadors.

However, I want to talk about this. What if all members became the first brand ambassadors of Lux Botanicals from South Korea – something that I never thought would say? Because Lux Botanicals is a popular soap brand in Asia, but I have never seen a brand ambassador from East Asia starring in their commercials.

As commonly known, Oh My Girl has seven members and seven visuals: Hyojung, Mimi, YooA, Seunghee, Jiho, Binnie, and Arin. Lux Botanicals also have seven variants (plus two new variants that we’ll talk about later on).

Lux Botanicals variants that fit all OMG members if they became brand ambassadors this year:
1. Hyojung = Sakura Bloom (for glowing skin)
2. Mimi = Blue Peony (for energized fresh skin)
3. YooA = Magical Orchid (for fragrant skin)
4. Seunghee = Camellia White (for visibly fair skin)
5. Jiho = Velvet Jasmine (for thoroughly smooth skin)
6. Binnie = Lily Fresh (for vibrant fresh skin)
7. Arin = Soft Rose (for soft, bacteria-free skin)

There’s also the Bird of Paradise (for nourished skin) and Yuzu Blossom (for deeply cleansed skin).

If this is true, then Lux Botanicals will make seven commercials for seven members. The filming process for these commercials can be tedious and take a long time, ahead of their upcoming comeback this May. I’m excited and so happy. Although my bias is Seunghee, I’m especially excited for Jiho and Arin‘s commercials. And actually that’s the purpose of me writing this post – ahead of their comeback.

Now, let’s be honest. Every Lux commercial has featured at least one male actor in it. However, in my mind, their male pairs can be bizarre. Arin can be paired with Polish singer Rafał Brzozowski for her commercial of Lux Botanicals Soft Rose. However, the commercials after that can be more bizarre. Imagine Binnie being paired with Swiss singer Gjon’s Tears for her commercial of Lux Botanicals Lily Fresh, or Jiho being paired with Fyr og Flamme’s Jesper Groth for her commercial of Lux Botanicals Velvet Jasmine!

So there you go. If Oh My Girl became the first ambassadors of Lux Botanicals from South Korea. I’d be excited to watch all seven of their commercials.

Não interessa mais pensar

Assim deixo esta tristeza
Vogando embalando na certeza

Jij bleef die nacht van me weg
Dag van me weg, bleef uit m’n leven

Toi qui es si loin de moi

Chante ton bonheur

Quand tu reviendras, te hâtant là-bas
Par nos chemins d’autrefois
Monteront tes couleurs
Aux créneaux de mon coeur

Passent les semaines, se traînent les jours
Et moi, j’attends ton retour
En filant la laine dans mes beaux atours
En bordant ma peine de doux fils d’amour

Quand tu reviendras, toi qui m’as laissé
Tant d’espoir au found de moi
Mon amour t’attendra
Auprès d’un feu de bois

Veille ma tendresse sur ton étendard
Mais avant de te revoir
Moi, pauvre princesse, le coeur dans le noir
Je tourne sans cesse mon rouet d’espoir

Car tu reviendras sans plus me quitter
Et mon coeur sera comblé
Puisque je t’aime
Puisque je t’aime

Nun trägt schon die Stadt ihr Abendkleid
Ein Lichtermeer in der Dunkelheit
Die große Einsamkeit
Tritt in jedes Haus um diese Zeit

Wie auf kleinen Inseln leben wir
Du weißt nicht mal, wer wohnt neben dir
Ihr alle kennt euch nicht
In der gleichen Welt von Lärm und Licht

Viele tausend Fenster leuchten hell in dieser Stadt
Und du fragst dich wer mag wohl dahinter sein
Viele tausend Fenster sagen stumm hier lebt noch wer
Grad’ wie du so einsam und allein

Kann da drüben das der Mensch nicht sein
Von dem du träumst, schon jahraus jahrein
Der dein Zuhause wär
Doch dich trennt von ihm ein Häusermeer

Morgen ist dein Herz genauso leer
Dann hoffst du auch noch genauso sehr
Nicht so allein zu sein
In der grauen Welt aus Stahl und Stein

Viele tausend Fenster leuchten hell in dieser Stadt
Und du fragst dich wer mag wohl dahinter sein
Viele tausend Fenster sagen stumm hier lebt noch wer
Grad’ wie du so einsam und allein

Et je m’y vois toujours plus heureux
Je sais que d’autres ont connu ces joies

I förrgår sa jag plötsligt nej till killarna
När de skulle ha ett party
Se’n satt jag en hel kväll och konverserade
Med din mamma och va’ arti’

Det börjar verka kärlek, banne mej
Sån’t som man ser på bio, tänka sej
Jag är väl misstänksam, men tanken sticker fram
Men för all del, jag kan ha fel

I går kväll gick jag med dej på en snyftare
Fast jag ville gå på pang-pang
Och se’n satt jag och hörde på en stråkkvartett
Jag som bara gillar dang-dang

Det börjar verka kärlek, banne mej
Sån’t där som står i böcker, tänka sej
Jag fattar ingenting, jag är väl lite ding
Så för all del, jag kan ha fel

I morse sjöng jag när jag borsta’ tänderna
Och se’n fick jag arbetsdille
Se’n ringde jag till dej om inte nå’nting alls
Bara för jag plötsligt ville

Det börjar verka kärlek, banne mej
Sån’t där som händer andra, tänka sej
Det mesta pekar på att jag är kär och så
Men för all del, jag kan ha fel

Det börjar verka kärlek, banne mej

S’il faut croire à cette légende
D’une fille qu’on y trouva

Elle était blonde, elle était douce
Elle aimait à se reposer
Dans le bois, couchée sur la mousse
Écoutant les oiseaux chanter

Un jour qu’elle allait à la ville
Par le bois où elle passait
Elle vit soudain, immobiles
Trois hommes qui la regardaient
Trois hommes qui la regardaient

Elle chante au milieu de bois
La source, et je me demande
S’il faut croire à cette légende
D’une fille qu’on y trouva

Ils étaient là, trois, à l’attendre
Trois hommes loups, cette brebis
Elle avait la chair bien trop tendre
Ils avaient bien trop d’appétit

Elle ne savait pas défendre
Le souffle léger de sa vie
Elle tomba sur l’herbe tendre
Comme un oiseau tombe du nid
Comme un oiseau tombe du nid

Elle chante au milieu de bois
La source, et je me demande
S’il faut croire à cette légende
D’une fille qu’on y trouva

Quand on l’a soulevée de terre
Comme une grande fleur coupée
Sa robe blanche et la lumière
On aurait dit une mariée

Quand on l’a soulevée de terre
On aurait dit comme un grand lis
Entres les feuilles, entre les pierres
Une claire source a jailli
Une claire source a jailli

Elle chante au milieu de bois
La source, et je me demande
S’il faut croire à cette légende

Oh, the sun shone down on us from above
Why should I be out walking that day and get
The chance of a lifetime of love

Show me the way you are feeling
Always tell me just what I should know
Oh, a guiding hand must have brought us together
But now that seems so long ago

Oh, I never thought my dreams would come true

A ljubav moja neće
Zanju živim zanju dajem sve

Jedan dan, onaj pravi dan
To je život, pun život nije san
Jedan dan, onaj pravi dan
To je mladost, ljubav, radost stvaran san

I’m burning up without fictions
Gi-give me your full attention
I want you to tame my fire now
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

Keep moving, now your eyes on me
It’s like my body’s yours only
So baby, don’t leave me lonely now
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

We’re like fire and gasoline
Come and light it up with me
So high on adrenaline
You’re my adrenalina

Just one touch and I’ll ignite
I’m a flame on dynamite
So high on adrenaline
You’re my adrenalina

Adrenalina

Oh-oh-oh, this place so fancy
Let’s go and light up this city
You’re close enough, but I need you closer
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

You got me to this, boy, don’t let go
I’m not living, no, without you
You know and I know you know, oh
Oh, you know I know (Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh)

We’re like fire and gasoline
Come and light it up with me
So high on adrenaline
You’re my adrenalina

Just one touch and I’ll ignite
I’m a flame on dynamite
So high on adrenaline
You’re my adrenalina

Adrenalina
(Flo Rida! Senhit and adrenaline!)

Step in the party ’cause she noddin’ to my body like, hot cause
Gasoline, kerosene, stop, drop, roll
I can’t blame it on the stove
911 when she comin’ down the pole

Heavy like planes when we touch, can’t get enough
We get ignited, so excited, you can feel the rush
Fi-fi-fire, more fire when we in the club
Put up my lighter, got the heat, she got me burnin’ up

Whoa, so hot like that to steam up
We got the place on inferno where we team up
Hotspot, hot girl, have you seen her
We up in smoke, fireworks, adrenalina (Adrenaline)

We’re like fire and gasoline
Come and light it up with me
So high on adrenaline
You’re my adrenalina

Just one touch and I’ll ignite
I’m a flame on dynamite
So high on adrenaline
You’re my adrenalina

Adrenalina
Adrenalina (Adrenalina)

Just one touch and I’ll ignite
I’m a flame on dynamite
So high on adrenaline
You’re my adrenalina

Uku Suviste – “The lucky one”
Music: Dimitris Kontopoulos
Lyrics: Sharon Vaughn

Wonder if it ever crossed your mind
And what we had was really unbelievable
Unbeatable, a miracle

Why’d you have to go and mess it up
Why’d you have to make what was unbreakable
Shakable, unsaveable

Now it’s too late to cross your fingers
I’m wide awake and not a dreamer
Hate it, but it seems the dreams were never true

For a little while, the fates were with us
Wonder why it had to turn against us
I can make a wish, but there is no use

I can feel
Even though I’m numb, the change to come will hurt someone
I can see
This time it isn’t me, I might be the lucky one

I don’t need a crystal ball to show me
Baby, it’s plain that you don’t know me
When it comes to you, I’m better off alone
(Better off alone)

I don’t need a crystal ball to make me
Realize that if I stay, you’d break me
Every sign is saying I should be gone
I should be gone

Thought I had a cloud over my head
It had to be my fault that it kept raining down
Until now, I figured out

That if I had the nerve to say goodbye
I could look for clearer skies up over head
Weather says sun instead

I don’t need a crystal ball to show me
Baby, it’s plain that you don’t know me
When it comes to you, I’m better off alone
(Better off alone)

I don’t need a crystal ball to make me
Realize that if I stay, you’d break me
Every sign is saying I should be gone
I should be gone

(Feel) I can feel
(Even though I’m numb) The change to come will hurt someone
I can see
This time it isn’t me, I might be the lucky one

I don’t need a crystal ball to show me
Baby, it’s plain that you don’t know me
When it comes to you, I’m better off alone
(Better off alone)

I don’t need a crystal ball to make me
Realize that if I stay, you’d break me
Every sign is saying I should be gone
I should be gone

Stefania Liberakakis – “Last dance”
Music: Dimitris Kontopoulos, Diveno, Pavlos Manolis, Egion Parreniasi, Gavriil Gavrilidis, Loukas Damianakos
Lyrics: Sharon Vaughn

My heart was born a radical
Electric and dynamical
I’ve never listened to the remedies
With no forevers, no eternities

Holding on beyond the night
For a shadow that feels right
Holding on beyond the night to you

If the dreams we made are made of fire
I will give a life just to live the dream again
If our hearts are hanging on a wire
Then let’s forget the world below and dance until the end

Let’s dance
Our last dance
Rockin’ romance
This ain’t our last dance

Let’s dance
Oh-oh…
Oh whoa whoa…
Oh-oho…

My heart was born in neon lights
Floating in space like satellites
Looking for signs of life tonight
As we collide in black and white

Holding on beyond the night
For a shadow that feels right
Holding on beyond the night to you

If the dreams we made are made of fire
I will give a life just to live the dream again

Let’s dance
Our last dance
Rockin’ romance
This ain’t our last dance

Let’s dance
Oh-oh…
Oh whoa whoa…
This ain’t our last dance

Take a deeper breath before we touch
Running out of time, let’s use it up
And hold me before the morning comes

Let’s dance
Oh…
Rockin’ romance
This ain’t our last dance
LET’S DANCE!

Vincent Bueno – “Amen”
Music and lyrics: Ashley Hicklin

Amen, I guess
You said that it’s time for us to put
Our love to rest
Dressed in black, you left my neighborhood

No, I never thought you’d bury me and you
No, I never thought we’d die

But amen
Amen
Tell me is this what you wanted
Is this what you wanted

Amen
Amen
Tell me is this what you wanted
Is this what you wanted

Amen, I bet
It’s just another funeral to you
But for me, it’s the end
A marching band are playing “Gone Too Soon”

No, I never thought you’d bury me and you
No, I never thought we’d die

Amen
Amen
Tell me is this what you wanted
Is this what you wanted

Amen
Amen
Tell me is this what you wanted
Is this what you wanted

‘Cause it all feels like
You didn’t even try
Oh, try, oh, try, try to save us
All this time
Wasted on a lie

But amen
Amen
Tell me is this what you wanted
Tell me is this what you wanted

Amen
Amen, yeah
Are you getting what you wanted
Are you getting what you wanted
Amen

Rafał Brzozowski – “The ride”
Music and lyrics: Joakim Övrenius, Clara Rubensson, Thomas Karlsson, Johan Mauritzson

Lights, beating down the rainy street
All the faces that I meet, tell me I’m wrong
Bright, staring up the neon signs
Making up a storyline, gotta hold on

Not lost, even if in the dead of night
I can make it out of might, just let me go
Yeah, I, I will make it through somehow
Let me figure out what is in and out

So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
High above ground, living it loud
I’m gonna take you to the end of the line
Taking the fight, make it alright

It doesn’t matter if I stumble and fall
I’ll make it through, I’ll never touch the ground
So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
Hold on real tight, make it alright

Heart, I will give my heart and soul
I am going for the goal, no holding back
I’m gonna rise, higher in the atmosphere
I ain’t got no time to fear, follow my tracks

Not lost, following the neon lights
Shooting through the seven skies, just let me go
Yeah, I, I will make it through somehow
Let me figure out what is in and out

So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
High above ground, living it loud
I’m gonna take you to the end of the line
Taking the fight, make it alright

It doesn’t matter if I stumble and fall
I’ll make it through, I’ll never touch the ground
So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
Hold on real tight, make it alright

I’m gonna take on the world tonight
Not gonna ask, gonna take what’s mine
So hold on tight, baby, let’s get high
High above the ground

Bright, staring at the neon signs
Let me figure out what is in and out

So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
High above ground, living it loud
I’m gonna take you to the end of the line
Taking the fight, make it alright

It doesn’t matter if I stumble and fall
I’ll make it through, I’ll never touch the ground
So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
Hold on real tight, make it alright

Natalia Gordienko – “Sugar”
Music: Dimitris Kontopoulos, Philipp Kirkorov
Lyrics: Mikhail Gutseriyev, Sharon Vaughn

I can’t explain it, but there’s something going on
A crazy energy inside of me
First just a tingle, then it turned into a burn
Like fire in my blood

And now I hear my body talk, talk, talk
A taste is all, all I need
And I’m about to climb the walls
No way I’ll be alone tonight

Come over, come over
I’m over doing without you
Come over, come over
Hey lover, give me some sugar

Got me addicted so you can’t take it away
Get me all satisfied

And now I hear my body talk, talk, talk
A taste is all, all I need
And I’m about to climb the walls
No way I’ll be alone tonight

Come over, come over
I’m over doing without you
Come over, come over
Hey lover, give me some sugar

Just took a little kiss to show how I was missing out
Compared to you, no one that I think to brag about
Your lips are hot and sweet, I feel it to my knees
Now I want only one, sugar sugar on my tongue

I need your kisses, baby, gotta keep ’em coming
Ah, ah, AAAAAAHHHHHH~

Sugar

Daði Freyr and Gagnamagnið – “10 years”
Music and lyrics: Daði Freyr Pétursson

We’ve been together for a decade now
Still look pretty, I’m loving you more
If I could do it all again
I’d probably do the same as before

I don’t wanna know what would have happened if I never have had your love
I didn’t become myself before I met you
I don’t wanna know what would have happened if I never have felt your love
Everything about you – I like

We started out so fast, now we can take it slower
Love takes some time, takes a little time, so take a little time
As it ages like wine

How does it keep getting better
Everyday our love finds a new way to grow
The time we spend together
Mmm… simply feels good
We got a good thing going

And just when I thought that my heart was full
I found places that I never explored
You’re so fascinating
I can’t remember the last time I was bored

I don’t wanna know what would have happened if I never have had your love
I didn’t become myself before I met you
I don’t wanna know what would have happened if I never have felt your love
Everything about you – I like

*dance break*

How does it keep getting better
Everyday our love finds a new way to grow
The time we spend together
Mmm… feels good

How does it keep getting better
Everyday our love finds a new way to grow
The time we spend together
Mmm… simply feels good
We got a good thing going

Hurricane – “Loco loco”
Music: Nemanja Antonić, Darko Dimitrov
Lyrics: Sanja Vučić

(А ја слатка сам и фина)
(Loco loco)
(А ја слатка сам и фина)
(Hu-Hu-Hu-Hurricane)

Немој да се љутиш, храброст скупи
Једна цура као ја не тражи обећања
Не скидаш тај поглед ти са мене
Лако ушла сам ја у твоје вене

Осмех твој ми каже
Да ме желиш кога лажеш
Слатка као ћоко моко
Хајде буди loco

Рам-ба-ба-бам, а ја слатка сам и фина
А ти си сам, сам, сам
И ја знам, знам, знам
Да биже лом, лом, лом
Зато хајде буди loco loco

А ја слатка сам и фина
А ти си сам, сам, сам
И ја знам, знам, знам
Да биже лом, лом, лом
Зато хајде буди loco loco
(Буди loco loco)

Baby, baby, baby, чему драма
Једна цура као ја не тражи обећања 
Baby, baby, baby, играм сама
То што ниси са мном то је твоја мана 

Осмех твој ми каже
Да ме желиш кога лажеш
Слатка као ћоко моко
Хајде буди loco

Рам-ба-ба-бам, а ја слатка сам и фина
А ти си сам, сам, сам
И ја знам, знам, знам
Да биже лом, лом, лом
Зато хајде буди loco loco

А ја слатка сам и фина
А ти си сам, сам, сам
И ја знам, знам, знам
Да биже лом, лом, лом
Зато хајде буди loco loco
(Loco loco)

1, 2 – girls, come on!

Loco loco
Loco loco
Loco loco
(Хајде буди loco loco)

Не скидаш поглед са мене
Лако сам ти ушла у вене
Хајде буди loco loco

А ти си сам, сам, сам
И ја знам, знам, знам
Да биже лом, лом, лом
Зато хајде буди loco loco

А ја слатка сам и фина
А ти си сам, сам, сам
И ја знам, знам, знам
Да биже лом, лом, лом

Anxhela Peristeri – “Karma”
Music: Kledi Bahiti
Lyrics: Olti Curri

Zoti nuk ma fal

Jeta si në përrallë
Më kish llastuar
Lart në qiell si një yll
Jetoja unë

Qeshja si e marrë
Kur ti rënkoje
E pashpirt, vetëm veten doja shumë

Zoti nuk ma fal
Bota mbi mua ra
Më ike ti, më ikën miqtë
As dritë nuk ka

Zoti nuk ma fal
T’thirra por sot nuk kam
Lotët mbledhur në dorë
Të ndryshkur janë

Se të kërkoja nëpër zemra bosh
Dhe e kuptoja asgjë nuk më josh
E vetme jam
Po, e vetme jam

Kur unë rënkoja, qeshje si i marrë
E meritoja, unë tërhiqem zvarrë
Fajtore jam
Po, fajtore jam

Zoti nuk ma fal
Bota mbi mua ra
Më ike ti, më ikën miqtë
As dritë nuk ka

Zoti nuk ma fal
T’thirra por sot nuk kam
Lotët mbledhur në dorë
Të ndryshkur janë

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

(Zoti nuk ma fal)
Bota mbi mua ra
(Më ike ti) Më ikën miqtë
As dritë nuk ka

Zoti nuk ma fal
T’thirra por sot nuk kam
Lotët mbledhur në dorë
Të ndryshkur janë

The Black Mamba – “Love is on my side”
Music and lyrics: Tatanka

Left home when I was only sweet 16
Chasing blind love and a bunch of broken dreams
Don’t know how, I thought I’d be a queen
I could do anything
And somehow I end up here
I don’t know why
I still believe that

Love is on my side
Love is on my side
Love is on my side
Maybe not tonight

I can feel it when it rains
I can feel it still running through my veins
Ran so fast, I couldn’t even grow
Forgot where I belong
Sold my body on a dirty cold floor
Yet I believe that
I believe that

Love is on my side
Love is on my side
Love is on my side
My side
Maybe not tonight

(Love is on my side) Love is, yeah
(Love is on my side) Love is, love is
Love is on my side
Maybe not tonight

Victoria Georgieva – “Growing up is getting old”
Music and lyrics: Victoria Georgieva, Maya Nalani, Helena Larsson, Oliver Björkvall

Playing Tetris
With my feelings, tryna keep them all inside
Hollow shadows
And my soul is spilling over, I’m out of time

Closing every door, wanna be alone
Lonely is the way that I survive
Sick of wanting more, sitting on the floor
Wondering where all my feelings go

Nervous system’s aching
Growing up is getting old

Don’t get it
There’s an ocean of emotion that I’m carrying inside
I am cautious
‘Cause I never understood how so much can fit in little me

Star-crossed soul
And I’m used to letting go, sink deeper in the flow of it
My demons know
Exactly where my fears are hiding all my tears

I’m torn by nervous system’s aching
Growing up is getting old
Anxiety is draining
Getting up is growing old

And if I ever take that second
To leave my worries behind
Maybe I could tread the waters of time
Get out of my mind

(Growing up is getting old)
Growing up is getting old
(Getting up is growing old)
Getting up is growing old

If your world is breaking
And growing up is getting old
Know that you’re worth saving
And getting up is all you’ve got

Blind Channel – “Dark side”
Music and lyrics: Niko Moilanen, Aleksi Kaunisvesi, Joel Hokka, Joonas Porko, Olli Matela, Tommi Lalli

Put your middle fingers up
Take a shot, throw it up and don’t stop
I’m, I’m, I’m
I’m living that life on the dark side

(Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!)
Every psycho in the scene, hands up and follow me saying
(Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!)
Empire of the freaks, all drinks on me

Just another night in my pitch-black paradise
Don’t wanna cry, so I gotta get paralyzed
My body is my weapon, so I keep it loaded
Till I’m all over my place like my head exploded

Don’t waste your prayers, they can’t save us
Lifestyles of the sick and dangerous

Put your middle fingers up
Take a shot, throw it up and don’t stop
I’m, I’m, I’m
I’m living that life on the dark side

Like the 27 Club
Headshot, we don’t wanna grow up
I’m, I’m, I’m
I’m living that life on the dark side
Life on the dark side

(Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!)
Every psycho in the scene, hands up and follow me saying
(Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!)
Empire of the freaks, all drinks on me

I’m in a cave of man-made misery
Digging a grave for myself and my enemies
Of all the dark things that keep me wasted
You’re the sweetest I’ve ever tasted

Put your middle fingers up
Take a shot, throw it up and don’t stop
I’m, I’m, I’m
I’m living that life on the dark side

Like the 27 Club
Headshot, we don’t wanna grow up
I’m, I’m, I’m
I’m living that life on the dark side
Life on the dark side

Just another night in my pitch-black paradise
Don’t wanna cry, so I gotta get paralyzed
Don’t waste your prayers, they can’t save us
Lifestyles of the sick and dangerous

Put your middle fingers up
Take a shot, throw it up and don’t stop
I’m, I’m, I’m
I’m living that life on the dark side

Like the 27 Club
Headshot, we don’t wanna grow up
I’m, I’m, I’m
I’m living that life on the dark side
Life on the dark side

(Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!)
Every psycho in the scene, hands up and follow me saying
(Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!)
Empire of the freaks, all drinks on me

Samanta Tīna – “The moon is rising”
Music and lyrics: Samanta Tīna, Oskars Uhaņs (SKVR), Aminata Savadogo

The queen of the night is coming
The blood moon is rising

When I’m walking like this with an attitude
You should know that I’m coming after you
You can run, you can hide, but you’re mesmerized
In your mind, I’m already idolized

Playing dirty – not my case
Giving up hopes – not my case
Being envious – not my case
You got something to say, say to my face

The queen of the night is coming
The blood moon is rising
(Get ready for the)

Badada badada badadaba
Badada babare
Badada badada badadaba
Badada baba – get ready for the

Badada badada badadaba
Badada babare
Badada badada badadaba
Badada babare

I will glow, I will burn, illuminate
Bring the passion inside, let me touch your fate
I will lead, I will guide you on your way
I’m here to remind, you’re in the right place

Playing dirty – not my case
Giving up hopes – not my case
Being envious – not my case
You got something to say, say to my face

My rules, your rules – I’m a woman, I’m a ruler
Rules, your rules – I’m accepting only true love
Rules, your rules – I’m a woman, I’m a ruler
You got something to say, say to my face

My rules, your rules – getting ready for the parade
Rules, your rules – no excuses if it’s too late
Rules, your rules – everybody follow my way
You got something to say, say to my face

The queen of the night is coming
The blood moon is rising
(Get ready for the)

Badada badada badadaba
Badada babare
Badada badada badadaba
Badada baba – get ready for the

Gjon’s Tears – “Tout l’univers”
Music: Wouter Hardy
Lyrics: Gjon Muharremaj, Wouter Hardy, Nina Sampermans, Xavier Michel

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

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

Je vois dèrriere 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, tout éclate
Se trouver au point d’impact sans toi

Que devient moi mon souffle
S’il reste sur le bord
Cet amour qui nous tord

Je vois dèrriere 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, tout éclate
Se trouver au point d’impact sans toi

Derrière mes paupières
Trouver de l’air
AAAAAAAHHHHHH~~~~~

(Tout l’univers)
(Nos deux coeurs sous la terre)
Au milieu des failles, des ressacs
Nous nous retrouverons au point d’impact
Comment soigner nos coeurs qui éclatent

Tout l’univers

Fyr og Flamme – “Øve os på hinanden”
Music and lyrics: Laurits Emanuel

Tiden er gået i stå
Hva’ er det, vi venter på
Dine øjne si’r det samme som mine
Så jeg sætter i

Et dansetrin
Jeg har øvet på hjemmefra
Og be’r til min skaber, at de griber mig

Et dansegulv
Rivaler spænder ben og fører krig
På et, på et dansegulv
Men hvis du ikke slipper mig, så letter vi

Ingen ved, hvordan man gør, så
Lad os øve os på hinanden
Lige om lidt er vi to voksne
Du er kvinden, jeg er manden

Hele gulvet er gået fra forstanden
La’ os øve på hinanden

Tiden er gået i stå
Din kjole er lyseblå
Du si’r noget, jeg ikk’ ka’ høre, mens rytmen kører

Et dansegulv
Hvor hjerter svulmer op og går itu
På et danse-, dansegulv
Vi bli’r aldrig mere levende end lige nu

Ingen ved, hvordan man gør, så
Lad os øve os på hinanden
Lige om lidt er vi to voksne
Du er kvinden, jeg er manden

Hele gulvet er gået fra forstanden
La’ os øve på hinanden

(Et dansegulv hvor hjerter svulmer op og går itu)
(Vi bli’r aldrig mere levende end lige her og nu)
Hele gulvet er gået fra forstanden
La’ os øve på hinanden

Ingen ved, hvordan man gør, så
Lad os øve os på hinanden
Lige om lidt er vi to voksne
Du er kvinden, jeg er manden

Hele gulvet er gået fra forstanden
La’ os øve på hinanden

Something’s going on here…
The music flows through my veins…

It’s taking over me, it’s slowly kicking in
My eyes are blinking and I don’t know what is happening
I can’t control it, don’t wanna end it
There’s no one here and I don’t care
I feel it’s safe to dance alone, dance alone, dance alone…
(Dance alone, dance alone, dance alone, dance alone)

Let’s discoteque right at my home
It is OK to dance alone
Dance alone, dance alone, dance alone, dance alone
I got the moves, it’s gonna blow

Dance alone, dance alone
Huh, huh, huh, huh
Dance alone, dance alone
Huh, huh, huh

By dancing on my own, I’m healing wounded souls
My body’s shaking, heart is breaking, have to let it go
I need to get up, and put my hands up
There’s no one here and I don’t care
I feel it’s safe to dance alone

Let’s discoteque right at my home
It is OK to dance alone
Dance alone, dance alone, dance alone, dance alone
I got the moves, it’s gonna blow

Dance alone, dance alone
Huh, huh, huh, huh
Dance alone, dance alone
Huh, huh, huh

Let’s discoteque right at my home
It is OK to dance alone
I got the moves, it’s gonna blow
It is OK to dance alone

Let’s discoteque right at my home
It is OK to dance alone
I got the moves, it’s gonna blow
It is OK to dance alone

Ana Soklič – “Amen”
Music: Ana Soklič, Žiga Pirnat, Bojan Simončič
Lyrics: Charlie Mason, Ana Soklič, Žiga Pirnat

Hey, child
Why you hiding from the light
Why you cowering in fright

Don’t tell yourself
That heaven’s cast you out
And you’re falling from grace

You’ll get beaten and bruised
You’ll be scarred unto your core
But it’s gonna make you who you are

When you learn to heal
When you learn to rise again
You can tell the sun amen

Hallelujah
We’re glorious
Hallelujah
The day is dawning

Storm’s relentless
But everybody knows
Everybody knows we’re born to the fight

Hey, child
The fear will never go away
Might as well accept it now

Learn to persevere
Oh, learn to count your blessings down
Greet the future with amen

Hallelujah
We’re glorious
Hallelujah
The day is dawning

Storm’s relentless
But everybody knows
Everybody knows we’re born to the fight

Not until the rain has stopped
Not until the thunder’s hushed
Are we at rest
Are we at peace, just imagine it

Not until the storm has passed
Not until it’s quiet
Can your heart its broken cry

Hallelujah
We’re glorious
(Hallelujah)
Oh yeah, the day is dawning

Storm’s relentless
But everybody knows
Everybody knows we’re born to the fight

Hey, child
Why you hiding from the light

Manizha – “Russian woman”
Music: Ori Avni, Ori Kaplan, Manizha Sangin
Lyrics: Manizha Sangin

Поле, поле, поле, я ж мала
Поле, поле, поле, так мала
Как пройти по полю из огня?
Как пройти по полю, если ты одна?

Ждать мне чьей-то ручечки, ручки?
А кто подаст мне ручку, девочки?

Испокон веков, с ночи до утра, с ночи-ночи
Ждём мы корабля, ждём мы корабля очень-очень
С ночи до утра, ждём мы корабля, ждём мы корабля
А чё ждать? Встала и пошла

Every Russian woman needs to know
You’re strong enough, you’re gonna break the wall
Every Russian woman needs to know
You’re strong enough, you’re gonna break the wall

Шо там хорохорится?
Ой, красавица
Ждёшь своего юнца?
Ой, красавица

Тебе уж за 30, алло, где же дети?
Ты в целом красива, но вот, похудеть бы
Надень подлиннее, надень покороче
Росла без отца, делай то, что (Не хочешь!)

Ты точно не хочешь? (Не хочешь, а надо!)
А, послушайте, правда, мы с вами — не стадо
Вороны, прошу, отвалите

Теперь зарубите себе на носу
Я вас не виню, а себя я чертовски люблю

Борются, борются
Все по кругу борются, да не молятся
Сын без отца, дочь без отца
Но сломанной family не сломать меня, а!

You’re gonna, you’re gonna break the wall! Rrr~

Every Russian woman needs to know
You’re strong enough, you’re gonna break the wall
Every Russian woman needs to know
You’re strong enough, you’re gonna break the wall

Ay, Russian woman
Don’t be afraid, girl
You’re strong enough
You’re strong enough

Don’t be afraid (Don’t be afraid)
Don’t be afraid (Don’t be afraid)
Don’t be afraid (Don’t be afraid)
Don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid

Борются, борются
Все по кругу борются, да не молятся
Сын без отца, дочь без отца
Но сломанной family не сломать меня, а!

Tusse – “Voices”
Music and lyrics: Jimmy Thörnfeldt, Joy Deb, Linnea Deb, Anderz Wrethov

There’s fire in the rain
But we’ll get up again
We’re thousand miles apart
But we’ll overcome

I’ll never let you down
World is turning us around
But I feel it in my heart
Let’s make a brand new start

Can’t stop us now, forget the haters
Get up and live and make it matter
There’s more to life, so go ahead
And sing it out

Can you hear
A million voices
Calling out
In the rain

You know we’ve got
A million choices
So go get out
And let it rain

A million voices, voices
A million voices, voices
A million voices, voices
A million voices

There’s fire in the rain
And I can feel your pain
Painting all the scars
And the colors of change

Don’t let ’em hold you down
Don’t let them hold you down
You’re shooting like the stars
The star you are

Can’t stop us now, forget the haters
Get up and live and make it matter
There’s more to life, so go ahead
And sing it out

Can you hear
A million voices
Calling out
In the rain

You know we’ve got
A million choices
So go get out
And let it rain
Can you hear them

A million voices, voices (Can you hear them)
A million voices, voices (Can you hear them)
A million voices, voices (Can you hear them)
A million voices

Can you hear them
Can you hear them

Can you hear
A million voices
Calling out
In the rain

You know we’ve got
A million choices
So go get out
And let it rain
Can you hear them

A million voices, voices (Can you hear them)
A million voices, voices (Can you hear them)
A million voices, voices (Can you hear them)

Montaigne – “Technicolor”
Music and lyrics: Jessica Cerro, Dave Hammer

I wanna be close to my mother
I wanna belong to the world
A mirror that shows technicolor
I’d be a magnificent girl

But everything is frustrating
Everything moves along
Faster than I can relate to

But I got power, yeah!
Midnight is the hour, yeah!
Time to take off your cloaks

Techni-technicolor
Techni-technicolor
If we stand together
We can do whatever

Techni-technicolor
Techni-technicolor
If we care for one another
We can

I wanna know that there’s a future
That can I move myself towards
And yet I promise you, yes, all you nasty dudes
I don’t need certainty to get my pot of gold, no

But everything is frustrating
Everything moves along
Faster than I can relate to

But we got grace, yeah!
We got style and lasers, yeah!
Time to take off your cloaks

Techni-technicolor
Techni-technicolor
If we stand together
We can do whatever

Techni-technicolor
Techni-technicolor
If we care for one another
We can shine

Shine
Shine
Shine

Techni-technicolor
Techni-technicolor
If we stand together
We can do whatever

Techni-technicolor
Techni-technicolor
If we care for one another
We can shine, hey!

Vasil Garvanliev – “Here I stand”
Music and lyrics: Vasil Garvanliev, Borče Kuzmanovski, Davor Jordanovski

There are times when I remember back
Wish to hug the child about to crack
I’ll tell him, “Wait, it won’t be long”
“Trust your heart, and just stay strong”

‘Cause baby, they all tried to break us
Not knowing it’s what makes us
This is how we found our way

And here I stand
There’s no pretend
My walls are down, my heart’s in your hand

Unchain my wings
And the oceans of tears will fade to black
With the song of my years
Ooh…

They all tried to break us
Not knowing it’s what makes us
This is how we found our way
(This is how we found our way)

(Here I stand)
My walls are down, my heart’s in your hand

(They all tried to break us)
(Not knowing it’s what makes us)
(This is how we found our way)

There are times when I remember back
And all I do is smile
All for you

(They all tried to break us)
(Not knowing it’s what makes us)
(And this is how we found our way)

Lesley Roy – “Maps”
Music and lyrics: Lesley Roy, Philip Strand, Lukas Hällgren, Emelie Eriksson

I’m gonna let down all the armor
Let out the power that I’ve been hiding
Not afraid of the monsters
Of the nightmares that I’ve been fighting

Easy to run, harder to stay
Finding colors in the gray
Thought I was done, but I got it wrong
I fell twice, I’m twice as strong

I’ve been searching all the wrong places
I’ve been trying too many faces
Only one way to go
This is the way back home

I’ve been searching all the wrong places
I’ve been trying too many faces
Only one way to go
This is the way back home

I had to take all of the long ways
All of the wrong ways, as I couldn’t see
All the signs, all the mistakes
Pointing one way to get back to me

Easy to run, harder to stay
Finding colors in the gray
Thought I was done, but I got it wrong
I fell twice, I’m twice as strong

I’ve been searching all the wrong places
I’ve been trying too many faces
Only one way to go
This is the way back home

I’ve been searching all the wrong places
I’ve been trying too many faces
Only one way to go
This is the way back home

My soul is a map, my heart is a compass
I am the road
There’s only one way to go
This is the way back home

My soul is a map, my heart is a compass
I am the road
There’s only one way to go
This is the way back home

I’ve been searching all the wrong places
I’ve been trying too many faces
Only one way to go
This is the way back home

I’ve been searching all the wrong places
I’ve been trying too many faces
Only one way to go
This is the way back home

Elena Tsagrinou – “El diablo”
Music and lyrics: Thomas Stengaard, Jimmy Thörnfeldt, Laurell Barker, Oxa

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to El Diablo, El Diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up
Because he tells me I’m his angel, I’m his angel

Tonight we’re gonna burn in a party
We’re wild as fire that’s on the loose
Hotter than sriracha in our bodies
T-taco, tamale – yeah, that’s my mood

All this spicy melts my icy edges
Baby, it’s true
Tonight we’re gonna burn in a party
It’s heaven in hell with you

Mama-mamacita
Tell me what to do
Lola lola loca
I’m breaking the rules

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to El Diablo, El Diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up
Because he tells me I’m his angel, I’m his angel

Oh…
El Diablo, El Diablo
I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to El Diablo, El Diablo

Tonight we’re gonna dance in the moonlight
Dropping our lashes on the floor
Hot flip, flip, made you look twice
Touch me, touch me, mi amor

All this spicy melts my icy edges
Baby, for sure
Tonight we’re gonna dance in the moonlight
And then we’re gonna do it some more

Mama-mamacita
Tell me what to do
Lola lola loca
I’m breaking the rules

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to El Diablo, El Diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up
Because he tells me I’m his angel, I’m his angel

Oh…
El Diablo, El Diablo
I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to El Diablo, El Diablo

(I love El Diablo)
(I love El Diablo)

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to El Diablo, El Diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up
Because he tells me I’m his angel, I’m his angel

Oh…

I gave my heart to El Diablo, El Diablo

TIX – “Fallen angel”
Music and lyrics: Andreas Haukeland

What can I say, I can’t make her stay
When I know that she’s so far above
How could she ever love someone like me
She’s out of reach

Here in the dark, inside the hole in my heart
I’m fighting all of my demons tryna tear me apart
And I’m still not sure what you ever saw in me

No
I’m a, I’m a fallen angel
And no matter where my heart is
There’s no way I’ll ever reach out heaven, to you

She’s so far out of this world
No way I could ever be with her
‘Cause I know heaven’s your home
That’s where angels belong
And it wouldn’t be fair
If I keep you down here

Here in the dark, inside the hole in my heart
I’m fighting all of my demons tryna tear me apart
And I’m still not sure what you ever saw in me

No
I’m a, I’m a fallen angel
Tryna fly, but I’m not able, oh…

And I need you to know
That it’s OK to let me go
‘Cause no matter where my heart is
There’s no way I’ll ever reach out to heaven, to you

I’m a, I’m a fallen angel
Yeah, I’m a, I’m a fallen angel
And I’m still not sure what you ever saw in me

No
I’m a, I’m a fallen angel
Tryna fly, but I’m not able, so
Just let me go

(I’m a, I’m a fallen angel)
‘Cause no matter where my heart is
There’s no way I’ll ever reach out to heaven, to you

Albina – “Tick-tock”
Music: Branimir Mihaljević
Lyrics: Tihana Buklijaš Bakić, Max Cinnamon

Tried to fix the broken pieces, now I’m leaving
But you made it loud and clear, I’m not enough
Tried to fool me more than once to keep me dreaming
‘Cause you knew the truth would tear us apart

If you pull me down, then I’ll come around
And rise up to come show you who I am
I feel far inside, my heart’s desire
I’m breaking free from you

Tick-tock, watch the days go
I’m losing track of time, lost in your play zone
Don’t overcomplicate, now we’re in war zone
You’re screaming, “Oh no, oh no, oh no”

Tick-tock, I’ll take you dancing
In time we might break, you think you’re fancy
I play the game my way, and you’ll be begging
“Please, baby, don’t go, don’t go, don’t go”

I hear those voices so far away
They help me to escape
I found myself and I’m finally free
From your bad loving and restraint

Tick-tock, watch the days go
I’m losing track of time, lost in your play zone
Don’t overcomplicate, now we’re in war zone
You’re screaming, “Oh no, oh no, oh no”

Dancing, dancing
Think you, think you, fancy
Tick-tock
Don’t go, don’t go, don’t go

I hear those voices so far away
They help me to escape
I found myself and I’m finally free
From your bad loving and restraint

Tik-tok, vrijeme curi
Gdje si više, usne grizem, sama jedva dišem
Tik-tok, vrijeme juri
Ne mogu više – Oh no, oh no…

Tick-tock, I’ll take you dancing
In time we might break, you think you’re fancy
I play the game my way, and you’ll be begging
“Please, baby, don’t go, don’t go, don’t go”

Dancing, dancing
Think you, think you, fancy
Tick-tock
Don’t go, don’t go, don’t go

Hooverphonic – “The wrong place”
Music and lyrics: Alex Callier, Charlotte Foret

I wake up and I think I could use another drink
I’m reaching for a smoke to forget about last night
Last night

I get up ’cause I need a shot of instant remedy
I put a record on, it makes me think about last night
Last night

It all ended in the weirdest chip
You started acting way too hip
That’s why

I ignored you for a long, long time
But then you had the best opening line
(You’re in the wrong place)

You’re lying next to me, I don’t know where to hide
I see your smiley face, that makes me wanna cry
What was I thinking, ’cause all we did was fight
Don’t you ever dare to wear my Johnny Cash T-shirt

(You’re in the wrong place)
(You’re in the wrong place)

You wake up and you think you will need another drink
You don’t want me to smoke though I didn’t stop last night
Last night

You get up ’cause you need an organic cup of tea
You put a record on, it makes you think about last night
Last night

You confused me with your blurry eyes
Thought you were a different kinda guy
That’s why

I took you to my messy place
But it felt as if we were in a different space
(You’re in the wrong place)

You’re lying next to me, I don’t know where to hide
I see your smiley face, that makes me wanna cry
What was I thinking, ’cause all we did was fight
Don’t you ever dare to wear my Johnny Cash T-shirt

(You’re in the wrong place)
You’re in the wrong place
You’re in the wrong place
You’re in the wrong place

You’re in the wrong place
You’re in the wrong place
Don’t you ever dare to wear my Johnny Cash T-shirt

Eden Alene – “Set me free”
Music and lyrics: Ido Netzer, Amit Mordechai, Noam Zlatin

Take a look what we’ve become
It’s been so long
Getting you out of my life
I feel so strong

Set me free
Feel my beating heart in perfect harmony
Don’t let me down

(I’ma, I’ma, ah)
(I’ma, I’ma, ah)

Feeling like a reason, looking for the reason
I don’t wanna say goodbye
Feels like no tomorrow, everywhere that I go
Babe, I’m gonna lose my mind

Just another story, tell me not to worry
Everything will be just fine
Used to be your treasure, now I’m gone forever
Think I’m going back in time

Set me free
Feel my beating heart in perfect harmony
Don’t let me down

(I’ma, I’ma, ah)
I’ma make it on my own
(I’ma, I’ma, ah)
Chalas im hashigaon

(I’ma, I’ma, ah)
I’ma make it on my own
(I’ma, I’ma, ah)

Life has been so easy, used to call us cheesy
It was paradise
In my bed so lonely, you’re the one and only
Hell, I know I paid the price

Clock is ticking tick-tock, everything is chick-chock
And I don’t know what to do
People tell me, “Honey, Yalla Balaganim”
“One day dreams will become true”

Set me free
Feel my beating heart in perfect harmony
Don’t let me down, oh

Set me free
Feel my beating heart in perfect harmony
Don’t let me down

(I’ma, I’ma, ah)
I’ma make it on my own
(I’ma, I’ma, ah)
Chalas im hashigaon

(I’ma, I’ma, ah)
I’ma make it on my own
(I’ma, I’ma, ah)

I’m so awesome, come and get some
What are we living for
I’m your reason, spicy season
Like we did before

Lemme take you higher, set the place on fire
2021 degrees
Feel my beating heart and set me free

Set me free (I’ma, I’ma, ah)
Set me free (I’ma make it on my own)
Set me free (I’ma, I’ma, ah)
Set me free (Chalas im hashigaon)

(I’ma, I’ma, ah)
(I’ma make it on my own)
(I’ma, I’ma, ah)

Harmony, don’t let me down
Just set me free

Roxen – “Amnesia”
Music and lyrics: Adelina Stinga, Victor Bourosu

Once upon a time, I used to know a girl
Ripped jeans, messy hair, shining like a pearl
Like a summer day, she could push the night so far away

If you feel what I feel, see what I see
Don’t bring yourself down
You’re not alone, not alone now

Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
This world feels in a rush, and they say know it all
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self-love amnesia, don’t worry if it got you

‘Cause you’re not alone, not alone
I tried to fight it but it’s getting strong, getting strong, getting strong
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self-love amnesia, don’t worry if it got you ’cause you’re not alone

Giving all they want might make you lose control
They keep preaching words like I should know
People always say, “Be careful what you’re wishing for”

If you feel what I feel, see what I see
Don’t bring yourself down
You’re not alone, not alone now

Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
This world feels in a rush, and they say know it all
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self-love amnesia, don’t worry if it got you

‘Cause you’re not alone, not alone
I tried to fight it but it’s getting strong, getting strong, getting strong
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self-love amnesia, don’t worry if it got you

Self-love is never gone
Self-love, put it back on
Oh, self-love, self-love, you’re not alone
Not alone, not alone, self-love amnesia

I lost myself tryna have it all
This world feels in a rush, and they say know it all
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self-love amnesia, don’t worry if it got you

‘Cause you’re not alone, not alone
I tried to fight it but it’s getting strong, getting strong, getting strong
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self-love amnesia, don’t worry if it got you ’cause you’re not alone

Music: Taras Shevchenko, Kateryna Pavlenko, Ihor Didenchuk
Lyrics: Kateryna Pavlenko

Весняночко, весняночко, де ти зимувала
У садочку на кленочку сорочечку пряла
Там у ліси, на узліссі сова в воду дує
Заспіваю співаночку нехай вона чує

Заплетіся, шуме, барвіночком
Я тобі співаю весняночку
Сію, сію, сію, сію конопелечки
Сію, сію, сію, сію зеленесенькі

Прийди, прийди, весняночко, та й не забаріся
А ми вийдем на юлітсю будем любитися
Весняночко, паняночко, заглянь у віконце
Заспівали співаночку засвітило сонце

Нумо, нумо, заплетемо шума
Заплетемо, гуляти підемо
Сію, сію, сію, сію конопелечки
Сію, сію, сію, сію зеленесенькі

Заплетіся, шуме, заплетіся
Барвіночком, шуме, застеліся
Сію, сію, сію, сію конопелечки
Сію, сію, сію, сію зеленесенькі

Весняночко, весняночко, де ти зимувала
У садочку на кленочку сорочечку пряла
Ой у лісі, на узліссі сова в воду дує
Заспіваю співаночку нехай вона чує

Заплетіся, шуме, барвіночком
Я тобі співаю весняночку
Сію, сію, сію, сію конопелечки
Сію, сію, сію, сію зеленесенькі

Нумо, нумо, заплетемо шума
Наробили, весну розбудили
Сію, сію, сію, сію конопелечки
Сію, сію, сію, сію зеленесенькі

Destiny Chukunyere – “Je me casse”
Music and lyrics: Nicklas Eklund, Amanuel Dermont, Pete Barringer, Malin Christin, Jon Hällgren

Babe, are you hurting? Are you alright?
You look like an angel that fell from the sky
And boy, you keep talking, massaging my ego
With your unoriginal pickup line
(Hell no, what you gonna do)

Hell no, I am not your honey
Hell no, I don’t want your money
Got it wrong, I ain’t into dummies
Nuh-uh-uh-uh!

So, baby
It’s not a maybe
Yeah, I’m too good to be true
But there’s nothing in it for you

So if I show some skin
Doesn’t mean I’m giving in
Not your baby
(Je me casse)

Je me casse
If you don’t get it
(Je me casse)

Je me casse
Je me casse
I’m not your baby

Boy, are you putting that drink in my hand?
Think if I’m drunk then, I’d give you a chance
Boy, you keep buying and complying, so stop trying
Not gonna give it up and change my plans
(Hell no, what you gonna do)

Hell no, I am not your honey
Hell no, I don’t want your money
Got it wrong, I ain’t into dummies
Nuh-uh-uh-uh!

So, baby
It’s not a maybe
Yeah, I’m too good to be true
But there’s nothing in it for you

So if I show some skin
Doesn’t mean I’m giving in
Not your baby
(Je me casse)

Je me casse
If you don’t get it
(Je me casse)

Je me casse
Je, je, je me casse
(If you don’t get it)

Ladies, if you feel like flaunting tonight, it’s alright
It’s alright
(Ladies) Ladies
(Listen to me)
Listen and go right ahead, show you’re shining bright

(If you don’t get it)
(If you, if you don’t get it) (Je me casse)
(If you don’t get it)
(If you, if you) Excuse my French

Baby, it’s not a maybe
Yeah, I’m too good to be true
But there’s nothing in it for you

So if I show some skin
Doesn’t mean I’m giving in
Not your baby
Je me casse

Je, je, je me casse
I’m not your baby
