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

I really thought that there was a rule stating that one cannot change the song after being submitted to the EBU (changing like doing another revamp) - maybe they want to pull off a Lithuanian 2018 and just sing a single line in Croatian?

The rules don't seem very transparent, aren't they? I wonder if they are OK if the arrangement of the song can be changed, but the not the lyrics. I mean they allowed France 2019 and Spain 2021 to change the arrangement of the song in the live performance that is different from the official ESC release.

One of the better :hr: songs. I like it much more than Albina last year.

I hope the juries will push her through if the televoting fails.

7 points.

In recent years, I surely agree with you. I didn't get the hype that surrounded tick tock last year either. Guilty Pleasure is simple, but a good song overall and she has really good vocals.

This is heading for A NQ and I love this song...I think from what I have seen I prefer the acrobatic dancer doing his nonsense than this attempt of a story, but I hope to be wrong...

Sad for Mia, but maybe this was just too cute. Also think juries choose other songs like Switzerland and Iceland.

Hopefully she comes back with a stronger song

I actually voted 20 times for this, watching the odds. Even checked with some betting friends. "Ah, don't waste your money, it's way too cute, and she staged it like some kind of ballet recital, and Croatia already doesn't have many friends, why are we still arguing".
And I got sad watching her thank me in the app knowing It still wouldn't be enough. Maybe people just thought "I survived COVID, let's upgrade my boyfriend, screw it. I'm leaving" and this song was 3 years too late. :ROFLMAO: Ah well.

Agree that here staging was not very good. Armenia had a better staging and better running order. Also right after Portugal was not good for Mia and i think the staging in the national final was more effective. It,s get a little bit to flat and random. Also i was missing some more power from backing singers.

I still really like it and she was my number 1 last night, but i,m afraid she get lost last night and perhaps did not get better then 13-15 place. Hopefully she did better then i think
