Lyrics:
(Taken from Eurovision.tv)

They read me like a book that is open,
While punching on a bag and I’m choking.
I’m Looking for a sign, while they’re stepping on my
Mind, but I hide behind a simpleminded notion.
I try act cool, but I’m boiling,
Feeling like a fool, that was chosen.
Try to keep myself calm, while my head is getting
Bombed, really need to get that good vibe going.

So when it’s all or nothing,
I put my nerves in the coffin.
So when it’s all or nothing,
I put my nerves in the coffin.

I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,
I don’t care if I’m falling,
I’m gonna grab the moment.
I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,
I don’t care if I’m falling,
I’m gonna grab the moment.

Getting kinda heavy on my shoulders,
Try to stand straight, but I’m boneless.
Gotta pocket full of prose, while I’m walking on my
Toes, and I’m coping with a map that is roadless.
Got eyes in my neck, but I’m absent,
Quiet in a corner seeking action.
I wanna be bold, but I’m only getting old,
I need to stop drowning in distractions.

So when it’s all or nothing,
Better get that good vibe buzzing.
So when it’s all or nothing,
I get that good vibe buzzing.

I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,
I don’t care if I’m falling,
I’m gonna grab the moment.
I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,
I don’t care if I’m falling,
I’m gonna grab the moment.

Deep, in that beat,
There’s a calling for that leap.
Got no con–trol, but I know, there’s a fire in my soul.
Hidden deep, in that beat, there’s a calling for that leap.
Got no con–trol, but I know, there’s a fire in my soul.

I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,
I don’t care if I’m falling,
I’m gonna grab the moment.
I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,
I don’t care if I’m falling,
I’m gonna grab the moment.

  1. SF2

    BUL, ISR, DEN, HUN, ROM ,EST, SRB, NOR, NED, SWI go through.

    Not far AUT, BLR and FYRoM.

    Then CRO, MLT, LIT, SNM.

  2. Two more things before bed and they’re both about the Norwegian jury:

    1. Noticed another ESC veteran there, Anne Karine Strøm. The only artist who has finished last in Eurovision twice, lol.

    2. Per Sundnes is also in the jury, which is pretty strange, given that he is also in the Norwegian preview jury and has already reviewed all entries. Remember that Wiktoria got sacked as a jury member last year because she had been a part of the Swedish preview jury too. Will the same thing happen here?
