Lyrics:
(Taken from Eurovision.tv)

Don’t ask me why the sun is shining
Long after the day is done
The evening falls, the bright lights
Bring out the best in me

I see massive walls weighing down the people all around
They don’t seem to mind at all
And I will try to stand my ground
Won’t be bound
Brings out the best in me

What’s the pressure?
You will grow
You will know in the end
This is fiction
It’s in your mind
Live your life instead

Don’t ask me why the sun is shining
Brings me all the joy and hope in live
Even though these rules they’
Try’na take over me
Try’na take over me

I see massive walls weighing down the people all around
They don’t seem to mind at all
I will try to stand my ground
Won’t be bound
Bring out the best in me

What’s the pressure?
You will grow
You will know in the end
This is fiction
It’s in your mind
Live your life instead

What’s the pressure?
This is fiction
It’s in your mind
So live your life the best

You gotta do what you want to do
You gotta be who you want to be
So tell me what’s the pre – es- sure

What’s the pressure?
This is fiction
It’s in your mind
So live your life instead

What’s the pressure?
You will grow
You will know in the end
This is fiction
It’s in your mind
So live your life the best
