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​

I‘m underwhelmed. It starts off very promising, it builds up, you expect something really good, you wait for it, you wait for it, the tension is rising. The song is finished. That‘s a musical coitus interruptus.

5 from me. Moody still, but not feeling any emotion from it.

I give it an 8 so far, but it may downgrade (depends on how fast I will be tired of it).

Nevertheless, better song than last year. Good luck

Oh, this is actually very nice. I don't really like the attitude of one of the band members, but that doesn't influence my opinion of the song itself and how much I enjoyed it overall. It's such a mature, darker and more mysterious version of "A Matter of Time" and Geike's voice fits much better than Luka's in the context of this song.

I also enjoyed "Release Me" and I gave it high points, but it faded away too soon and I had to release it from my top 10. Hopefully this one will stay longer in my mind. So far so good, it gets better with every listen.

:10: points

I don’t really know how I feel about the song, because I just can’t get over what a d*ck that Alex Callier is.

But I have listened to it a few times today and for now I’d say I liked Release Me way better.

It's exactly what i expected it to be and does nothing for me at all. Competent, but insubstantial.

I really like this one, especially the "Don't you ever dare to wear my Johnny Cash t-shirt"-part, clearly preferring it compared to "Realase Me"

Second :0: of the year 🥳 this is more the artists' (cough alex cough) fault than anything else though.

For some reason, I am very into this years Belgium entry. I can't imagine what kind of performance they will come up with, but I hope they do the song's justice.

I'm addicted to this. Geike's voice is magnetic and pleasant. The only issue I find is the ending, it seems like it's going to climax and it ends.

The song is moody, cool and well crafted but I can't see this qualifying in what is looking to be an absolutely amazing and strong semi final. Belgium looking for third NQ in a row.
