I'm in you're back seat
You are driving me crazy
You're in fully control
It's like you always know so
Are you having a good time?
Doesn't seem like you're all fine
We don't laugh anymore
And when we cry we do it on our own

It's been a lovely year for us
Yeah, that's what they say
It's been a hell of year
And we've been living in fear
Close to giving up

But if we die together now
We will always have each other
I won't lose you for another
And if we die together now
I will hold you till forever
If we die together, die together now

I love you, say that you love me too
That's the only way we can get out of this hell we made

It's been a lovely year for us
Yeah that's what they say
It's been a hell of year
And we've been living in fear
Close to giving up

But if we die together now
We will always have each other
I won't lose you for another
And if we die together now
I will hold you till forever
If we die together, die together

Take my heart and rip it out
Bring it to the other side
Take my heart and rip it out
Bring it to the other side

Take my heart and rip it out
Bring it to the other side
Take my heart and rip it out
Oh, Take my heart and rip it out

But if we die together now
We will always have each other
I won't lose you for another
And if we die together
I will hold you till forever
If we die together, die together now​

Well now I'm hyped

Will rush home to listen asap

Don´t expect an intersting story line or "thrilling" special effects, though - I just think that the aesthetics of the music video are very "Lana Del Rey"-ish, though.

This feels like Bolgaria in 2021. Great singer, beautiful voice, emotional ballad, modern production, everyone is hyping it to the moon and then when televote kicks in, huge disappointment.

Nothing impresses me with this entry, bland and boring. There's no Greek vibe (nothing Norwegian either for that matter) and it could have been competing for any country at all in ESC. Give me 'Die for You' (Antique) or 'Alle mine tankar' (Silje Vige) any day. 2 points from me.

Had a similar initial reaction to the first part but now I think the acapela-vocoder thing is cool, unique and it helps the song to build beautifully, coz it starts from no music at all

Even though I still don't like it personally, I agree, it is a unique feature as I don't think I've even heard it again in an ESC song and it helps with the build up.

Is it me or the production for the song is very minimal? You barely hear much during the first half of the song.
The build up is way too late. It feels boring after the first chorus. I really don't know what is the target audience for this song. It doesn't have the strong ethnic sounds like Cyprus, nor it has the dark melancholy vibe The Netherlands have.
This feels neither here or there, lacks identity. Giving this a :5: . Let's see if her 'live' performance can elevate this (and that itself is not a good thing if a song requires staging to elevate it).

I think she has a far stronger artistic presense than Victoria, the theme of Amandas song is much more accesible too. If a song is similar to Bulgaria 2021 its Switzerland this year, not Greece.

That's a blasphemy. This is nothing like Lana Del Rey.
At most, I can see this coming back of Birdy's catalogue.

I was talking about the atmosphere of the music video - not the song itself.

Saying this like the goddess Birdy is any inferior. Shes everything xgoddess
But yeah musically its very Birdy.
Musically it doesnt remind of Lana, only the theme and some parts of the video.

The music video? It's your usual love story music video. I see no resemblance to Lana's music videos. It's way too bright and clean to be associated with Lana Del Rey.

I can see Lana in the rocks in a white dress waving goodbye to her lover, its very poetic in Lana's style of poetic

Not saying Birdy is inferior. But if to compare to Lana's masterpieces, I think we all know the answers.
Plus, I am being way too generous to say it's something of Birdy's back catalogue.

This is not the kind of song I am usually fond of, but I have to recognise the production is really on point. Giving this 7 points but it may grow on me.
