  1. New Tick-Tock lyrics

    I believe that I’ve loved you
    Since the first time that I saw you
    Bells rang angels sang
    When the light of the night
    fell on us we knew

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

    We both knew that you were mine
    Now cover me, I’ll buy us time, time

    oh oh oh oh oh oh oh *2

    Oh wait for me I’m worth your while
    Tick-tock, can you hear me go tick tock
    My heart is like a clock, I’m steady like a rock
    Sch don’t stop, kiss and kiss me till I drop
    My heart is like a clock you wind it with your love
    You wind and wind, it with your love
    Now I know it’s too hard to
    go tick tock without the glimpse of you
    If you cave in I break
    I keep losing my pace
    In this endless race

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

    They all know that you’re mine
    They can see we belong
    Shelter me, you’ll do fine
    Wait for me, I’ll buy us time

    Tick-tock, can you hear me go tick tock
    My heart is like a clock, I’m steady like a rock
    Sch don’t stop, kiss and kiss me till I drop
    My heart is like a clock, you wind it with your love.

  2. The Russian and the Austrian entry will be revealed tomorrow.

    • As a twin myself, I know what it’s like being one so personally I would hate to have to be forced to sing as a twin in some kind of horribly forced act in a horrible you-do-what-I tell-you regime, cause you are cute twins scenario, but they will of course, so good luck to their parents who forced them I guess, and Austria, well let’s see…am hoping for a decent song I can actually like this year!!

      • I know what you mean but i don’t really know if it applies to the situation.The girls seem to be ultra-ambitious believing they will fight for victory.
        Of course,they were raised this way so it’s not their fault mainly.

      • Reading this started to think who made Conchita not to shave her face!

    • OMG, I just realized that it’s 2011 all over again; we’ve got two sets of twins! :P

    • to be honest with you, ser honete avec toi, only reference to French song in Spain apart from here in ESC was a fefrence to “moustache” and the Spanish reference…, pubic hairs and pubic singing….:-)?
