Dreamt of you last night
Woke up, you weren't there
Five nights in a row
Of dreams I've never shared

You come without a warning
Early in the morning
Timing's never been our thing
Leaving me with guilt
The only souvenir you bring

I'm with him and you're a secret treasure
He's devotion, you're a guilty pleasure
I'm with him and this is real life, honey
Guess the joke's no longer funny

I'm with him until the death do us part
But it doesn't do for this hungry heart
I'm with him, but in my frantic head
You always come and say:

"Would you run away?"
"Would you run away with me?"
"Would you run away?"
"Would you run away?"

One love is enough
That's all you ever get
Least that's what they tell you
Still, I can't forget

Eyes like burning ashes
Till the sunlight flashes
Can't be cold, but I've been taught
Captivated by the
Thunderstorm in which I'm caught

I'm with him and you're a secret treasure
He's devotion, you're a guilty pleasure
I'm with him and this is real life, honey
Guess the joke's no longer funny

I'm with him until the death do us part,
But it doesn't do for this hungry heart
I'm with him, but in my frantic head
You always come and say:

"Would you run away?" (Would you run away?)
"Would you run away with me?"
"Would you run away?" (Would you run away?)
"Would you run away?"

(Would you run away?)
In this real life, there's no way
In this real life, I have to say (Would you run away?)
In this real life, there's no way
In this real life

I'm with him and you're a secret treasure
He's devotion, you're a guilty pleasure
I'm with him and this is real life, honey
Guess the joke's no longer funny

I'm with him until the death do us part,
But it doesn't do for this hungry heart
I'm with him, but in my frantic head
You always come and say, say, say:

"Would you run away?" (Would you run away?)
"Would you run away with me?"
"Would you run away?" (Would you run away?)
"Would you run away?"

(Would you run away?)
In this real life, there's no way (Would you run away?)
In this real life, I have to say (Would you run away?)
In this real life, there's no way (Would you run away?)
In this real life

Scrap that. I'm upgrading this to a :10:. Now that I can't unhear the similarities to Taylor Swift's "Willow" after people mentioned it.

And I freaking love "Willow" plus I'm a Swiftie. So for Mia to produce this inspired track deserves this upgrade. No wonder I thought this is the best track from this NF.

But what I've said about the staging still holds. They need to go back to the drawing board and re-look into the staging because it does no favour to the song.

It's cute. I don't have a lot to say about it, but it could probably be a dark horse for cheese reasons and the way they can utilise the new staging features in Turin.

It is a cute song and has a very sweet, soothing melody. I also liked the performance but I don't think that the dancer add something, at least with the way they utilized him.

Actually this has been a grower for me today. I'm upgrading from :3: to :6: points. Still it's nothing mind-blowing but it's quite easy on the ear... It might even qualify in the end, with this low quality we have so far in SF1.

Managed to catch all performances (except 2 because I don't like the songs at all) from the final.
My general thoughts:
  • The 'live' performances didn't elevate the songs for me except Bernarda's.
  • As an overall package, Bernarda's seems the strongest - vocally and staging are pretty much ESC ready. It's just too bad the song is just not good enough. Her whistle tones are so good.
  • Ella's stage presence is still zero. Though at least she tried. But Poland 2021 called and asked for the palm-lights back.
  • ToMa got such a good voice, but the song is just meh all over.
  • I do have a liking for Jessa's performance. Think the 90's neon lights work for me. But her vocals not so much.
  • Can I say Roko is really good-looking? HOT.
  • I wouldn't mind if Marko won, there is some potential there. If they have gotten the staging right, it could have been a decent winning entry.
  • I do like how they use the lightings effectively for the staging for most of the performances even though the staging is very minimal.
  • Overall, a weaker NF compared to last year's.
I do like Mia D's song (as a studio form). It has bumped up to my no. 2 in this year's contest so far. But the staging really needs to a revamp.

One thing about this year´s DORA that gets me upset is the fact that the stage looked better than it ever did and yet none of the 14 acts tried to use that to their advantage.

Gorgeous stage wasted.

The thing is that we don't have any shows or concerts of that kind and nobody knows how to do it. Even if somebody would know how to do something, the majority of the artists were pretty unknown and don't really have the funds to pay that person to do staging.
