SerhatSan Marino – Another Internal selection from San Marino and this year they’ve borrowed from the East in the form of Serhat. Serhat will be performing his song “I Didn’t Know” in the first semi final. San Marino have only been able to qualify for the final only once, will this be their second?

Music By: Olcayto Ahmet Tuğsuz
Lyrics By: Nektarios Tyrakis

About Serhat:
Serhat was born in Istanbul, Turkey where he is the most well known. He also well known in Greece where he presents the TV Show Kalimerhaba with Katerina Moutsatsou. He is of course a singer and TV Presenter but he also presents television shows including the Turkish version of the American Quiz Show Jeopardy.
Serhat was not always in showbiz however and also has an education in dentistry (Amir representing France was also a dentist).

Serhat

As already mentioned, Serhat was internally selected by the Sammarinese broadcaster. The current Disco version of the song was not the form originally chosen and was only one of several versions that came with the EP. The Disco version proved more popular and the song’s writer decided to pull the original version and instead submit the Disco. Currently San Marino are joint last in the bookie betting.

Lyrics:
(Taken from Eurovision.tv)

I want to stay with you tonight
Far from every sight and every fear
I got to be inside your mind
And hide into your arms
You have to see this love is real
Come along and live with my emotions
From now on we’ll make a deal
To thrill everything we feel

I want to sleep upon your skin
Run against the wind to reach your passion
I lay my future in your hands
We’ll dance under the stars
I need you more and more each day
I’ve got to say I am addicted
We’ll sail together through the skies
Your eyes never told me lies

I didn’t know
That I’m falling for you
And my dreams could come true
I didn’t know
That you’re warm like the sun
Our life has just begun
I didn’t know
You’re the one for me
I thought I’d never find
I didn’t know
That you wished for the moon
To provide me the light

I didn’t know
That I’m falling for you
And my dreams could come true
I didn’t know
That you’re warm like the sun
Our life has just begun
I didn’t know
That you’re freezing the time
Just to make you all mine
I didn’t know
With every beat of your heart
I’m melting into you

I didn’t know
That I’m falling for you
And my dreams could come true
I didn’t know
That you’re warm like the sun
Our life has just begun
I didn’t know
You’re the one for me
I thought I’d never find
I didn’t know
I didn’t know
I didn’t know

I didn’t know
