I wake up and I think I could use another drink
I'm reaching for a smoke to forget about last night, last night
I get up 'cause I need a shot of instant remedy
I put a record on, it makes me think about last night, last night

It all ended in the weirdest chip
He started actin' way too hip
That's why I ignored you for a long, long time
But then you had the best opening line
You're in the wrong place

You're lying next to me, I don't know where to hide
I see his smiley face that makes me wanna cry
What was I thinking? 'Cause all we did was fight
Don't you ever dare to wear my Johnny Cash t-shirt

You're in the wrong place, you're in the wrong place

You wake up and you think you won't need another drink
You don't want me to smoke, though I didn't stop last night, last night
You get up 'cause you need an organic cup of tea
You put a record on, it makes you think about last night, last night

You confuse me with your blurry eyes
Thought you were a different kind of guy
That's why I took you to my messy place
But it felt as if we were in a different space
You're in the wrong place

You're lying next to me, I don't know where to hide
I see his smiley face that makes me wanna cry
What was I thinking? 'Cause all we did was fight
Don't you ever dare to wear my Johnny Cash t-shirt

You're in the wrong place, you're in the wrong place
You're in the wrong place, you're in the wrong place
You're in the wrong place, you're in the wrong place
Don't you ever dare to wear my Johnny Cash t-shirt​

It's one of the acts that can benefit the most from having another entry as their 2020 was ... well... boring? uninspired?

By showing such a lack of respect towards Europe Shine A Light yesterday, they shouldn't be allowed to represent Belgium next year anymore.

Periodt.

Even if they come up with the most genius song ever, I won’t vote for it anymore. That attitude has nothing to do with arrogance or being true to yourself and your music, but with being a self-obsessed dick.

And apparently he missed some valuable life lessons, like the one in which your parents teach you that you sometimes have to do things you don’t particularly enjoy for the benefit of others.

Bish all you have to do is say one sentence they don't expect you to recite Quran lmao it's not a big deal, what they did was a very unnecessary shade. Salvador Sobral must be proud of them lol

Luckily the rest of Europe will have no idea next year so they won't suffer results-wise because of this, but yes Alex didn't really help them with the fans last night.

Alex basically thinks too much of himself to let the singer of his band sing a song in what should have been 3 minutes of unity during a global crisis. However, when he could promote his own songs, the show was apparently good enough for him.

he called it a "kutlied" which... um... is not very kind, lol.

I think it's okay to refuse to sing if you don't like the song. Little Big solved this by letting the female singer (whose name escapes me) sing the part, while Illych was absent. So, I personally don't mind that he declined - like, be an eeyore if you must.

I am however lowkey piqued that he denied Luka the opportunity to make up her own mind. She is the singer. The decision to participate in the sing-along should therefore be hers, not his. it is good that he's feeling the backlash for the moment.

This kind of attitude .... xpuke I don't think I can wholeheartedly support them next year, no matter how good the song might be. I hope the song is bad so that I can give bad marks without a bad conscience. xblush

Oh i have no qualms grading the new song free of biases if it's good. Richard Wagner had a *horrendous* personality and he's still one of my composers.
