Lyrics:
(Taken from Eurovision.tv)

J’ai cherché
un sens à mon existence
J’y ai laissé mon innocence
J’ai fini le coeur sans défense
J’ai cherché
L’amour et la reconnaissance
J’ai payé
Le prix du silence
Je me blesse et je recommence

Tu m’as
Comme donné l’envie d’être moi
Donné un sens à mes pourquoi
Tu as tué la peur
Qui dormait là
Qui dormait là
Dans mes bras

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

J’ai cherché
Un sens, un point de repère
Partagé en 2 hémisphères
Comme une erreur de l’univers
J’ai jeté
Tellement de bouteilles à la mer
J’ai bu tant de liqueurs amères
Que j’en ai les lèvres de pierre

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

Au gré de nos blessures
Et de nos désinvoltures
C’est quand on n’y croit plus du tout
Qu’on trouve un paradis perdu
En nous
Oh you you you you

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

Like the melody of my song
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
giving you love with my song
giving you love with my song

  1. #AmirForTheWin!! <3

  2. Ok the reason why I think Amir will win Eurovision is that I feel this genuinity in the song and him as an artist. It has this Malta 2013 feel of it and I truly like the message of the song. Be prepared for a shock in May y’all, France is gonna bring it!
