Look where we are
We used to be the rockstars
Who never thought of no harm
'Til this thing we call life stopped gleaming
I wish there was a way to go back dreaming

Remembering gets so hard
When time is moving so fast
Wish there was a way to know that we're in
The good old days before we all just leave 'em

I tried getting rid of the pain
I tried to make it go away, but it probably won't change
Always thinking 'bout my own worries
Remember back when we had no worries?
Now life just ain't hitting the same
I sit and miss and reminisce about innocent old days
When I was afraid of nobody
Now I'm afraid of being a nobody

Don't wanna leave my bed
I'll just stay and never get it together
'Cause the voices in my head
They keep saying it'll never get better

Look where we are
We used to be the rockstars
Who never thought of no harm
'Til this thing we call life stopped gleaming
I wish there was a way to go back dreaming

Remembering gets so hard
When time is moving so fast
Wish there was a way to know that we're in
The good old days before we all just leave 'em

Sometimes I got this kinda sting that's right inside my chest
Its only purpose is convincing me that I'm a mess
And even though it's always been an uninvited guest
It finds a way in nonetheless
Wish I could change my address
And you know
Just be somebody else for a couple of days
Although I'm pretty sure we all feel the same kinda way
'Cause if you think about it
Aren't we all set in a place
Where we look back at better days
And wish they weren't so far away?

I wish that I could just go back and be the way I was
I wish I'd still not give a damn 'bout how I come across
I wish the way I saw myself had never gotten lost
In all the worries, all the thoughts, overthinking all the parts
So exhausted, always caught up inside my doubts and flaws
And I'ma count them all
Somebody catch me, I'm 'bout to fall
Yeah, I'm 'bout to fall
Can we press pause?
Or do a restart
And be who we are?

We used to be the rockstars
Who never thought of no harm
'Til this thing we call life stopped gleaming
I wish there was a way to go back dreaming

Remembering gets so hard
When time is moving so fast
Wish there was a way to know that we're in
The good old days before we all just leave 'em

Didn't we?
(We used to be the rockstars)
Didn't we?
(We used to be the rockstars)
(We used to be the rockstars)

Remembering gets so hard
When time is moving so fast
Wish there was a way to know that we're in
The good old days before we all just leave 'em​

Another rumour, and really just speculation: a Schlager-singer called Eric Phiilppi:
A. Wolfcast used the word "schockverliebt" (sort of "shock in love", "completely in love instantly") - it's a word that made Eric famous. His latest single is "Irgendwo", but that would be too long for ESC.

source:


Not my music style anyway. Hope it's not true.
Oh god no please no. This is garbage. But knowing the aging german audience they will eat this up and vote for this like they did for S!sters. Horrible.

Here´s an article on "ESC kompakt" about who could be part of the NF:


I would absolutely support Linda or Lilly, the other ones, especially the daughter of Minnie Mouse are a huge NOPE for me!!

I always read esc-kompakt as well :D
Lilly would be great! Linda only with a good song, her 2019 entry was really bland and would've been another "Perfect Life".

Oh yes the Reim-daughter would a big nightmare as well... Nope nope nope

That really sounds a lot like something our radio stations would love, so wouldn't be surprised if he is in the final selection. It's compeltely inoffensive, not bad but also not great. Would for sure be bottom 5 in May.

It is speculated that this is the entry actually ... the song is okay, but it would definitely go under at ESC. So if he takes part, I hope it's another song!

I really like Rockstar! Hope Malik, Emily Roberts and Lily Among Clouds are in the final... so far they have the most potential!

new rumour: Tokio Hotel ;)
That would in all honesty be a good thing. I like their new music, they are still well known so they would draw the attention of the german media to eurovision again. And they know how to make a show, they wouldn't just get lost next to 24 other songs.

Yeah, but only because Tom Kaulitz is married with Heidi Klum, on a musical perspective they´re mostly forgotten and I´m not complaining.

Gosh, I can still remember their hight time from 2005-2009, Tokio Hotel here, Tokio Hotel there, I freaking hated their music and the hype was irritating as hell!! xgaah

I guess most of their former fans are now in their thirties and don´t wanna be reminded of those times anymore. :LOL:

Their song "White Lies" has 56 million streams on Spotify. That's not "forgotten" and Heidi Klum is not that popular to get them this many streams. Either way it doesn't matter why they are still known fact of the matter is they are still very well known. The name "Tokio Hotel" is still triggering edgy responses from people that dislike them :ROFLMAO:

True. Would still prefer it over "Rockstar" or "Irgendwo" or "Schockverliebt".

They were very popular in Poland too! I was not a fan, but not a hater either.

They were huge in France too but with younger people than me. I remember people asking me if I was learning German because of them but I was already learning the language for years before they were known. 😂

I still know a few Tokio Hotel fans who attend their concerts. They were huge when I was at school and even though I have never been their fan, I think that their latest stuff is not bad at all. They would be a great entrant (with the right song) and they still tour around Europe and are able to sell venues... they are not "forgotten" - of course, they can´t reach their former peak or even come close to it but same applies to other "one album wonder"/"teenie stars".
