Lyrics:
(Taken from Eurovision.tv)

When you need to run away
From what other people say
Your enemy might be your own mind

A smile, a hug, a bit of praise
You haven’t received for days
For lo-o-ong you feel mistreated

In a world where the poems sound fake
And the love is replaced by the fame

Million hearts of a million people
Be proud, you were born to be real oh-oh
Million lies in a million temples
It’s only fear, become a pioneer oh-oh

You’ve been weird, been a mess
They don’t know how to value uniqueness
So they turn their heads away

When there ain’t no products to sell
Everyone will cast their own spell

Million hearts of a million people
Be proud, you were born to be real oh-oh
Million lies in a million temples
It’s only fear, become a pioneer oh-oh

No right time, no right place
To meet your inner grace
Approval is found within

Million hearts of a million people
Be proud, you were born to be real oh-oh
Million lies in a million temples
It’s only fear, become a pioneer oh-oh

You should know, you should know

  5. Approval is found within.Good luck tonight Freddie!

  6. wow, what I wrote on Israel can be copied/pasted word for word: I really like the song, even more since they revamped it. I dont really like him, nor hiw way of performing it, all “look at me”!
