Lights, beaming down the rainy street
All the faces that I meet tell me I'm wrong
Ride, staring at the neon signs
Making up a storyline, gotta hold on
Not lost, even in the death of night
I can make it out alright
Just let me go
Yeah, I, I will make it through somehow
Let me figure out what is in and out

So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
High above ground, living it now
I'm gonna take you to the end of the line
Taking that fight, make it alright
It doesn't matter if I stumble and fall
I'll make it through, I'll never touch the ground
So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
Hold on real tight, make it alright

Hard, I won't give my heart and soul
I am going for the glow, no looking back
I'm gonna rise high up in the atmosphere
I ain't got no time to fear
Follow my tracks

Not lost, following the neon lights
Shooting through the summer skies
Just let me go
Yeah I, I will make it through somehow
Let me figure out what is in and out

So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
High above ground, living it now
I'm gonna take you to the end of the line
Taking that fight, make it alright
It doesn't matter if I stumble and fall
I'll make it through, I'll never touch the ground
So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
Hold on real tight, make it alright

I'm gonna take all the world tonight (Oh-woah-oh-oh)
Not gonna ask, gonna take what's mine (Oh-woah-oh-oh)
So hold on tight, baby, let's get high (Oh-woah-oh-oh)
High above the ground
Ride, staring at the neon signs
Let me figure out what is in and out

So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
High above ground, living it now
I'm gonna take you to the end of the line
Taking that fight, make it alright
It doesn't matter if I stumble and fall
I'll make it through, I'll never touch the ground
So baby, hold on for the ride of your life
Hold on real tight, make it alright​

We will not have the strength to beat The Roop, Gjon's Tears, Victoria, Go_A or that annoying guy from Iceland this year anyway.

Poland needs to save its energy to win ESC 2022 in Vilnius or Odessa and thus, Roksana won't be an option this year :D
You are Polish or German? :eek:

Hopefully not Serhat style...

Why not? :p Polska always is six feet under when it comes to jury points, even when the entry is supposedly jury-friendly (which is clearly not okay when others get away with pretty much anything).

Personally, I would love you to think more out-of-the-box, try new things instead of trying to court a bunch of random people paid to vote. Regardless of genre, I am craving for a track with a clear standout-factor from you. When I look at your recent entries, apart from 2014 and 2016, that is what I think is lacking imo, ballsiness. "Pali się" was a step in that direction, sadly it didn't work (although it deserved to qualify imo). I mean no offense to Alicja's entry last year, but I thought a songwriting camp product from a foreigner who wrote "Sister" was kind of a regression. :(

Why hasn't Alecja been announced yet? How hard is it to say "Yes, we will send her again this year."

Christalmighty Poland, just get fucking ON with it.

EDIT: unrelated, Tuorem, is that an ALISTAIR THEIRIN AVATAR? OMG :love:

Ah, you know the finest tea :sneaky: High-five xcheersyou've got elite references.

Indeed, Alicja has to come back, it wouldn't make any sense for them to pick someone else. :)

Honey, I spent the past two months playing Inquisition non-stop. (which roughly translates to what? 9 playthoughts in a row? lol) I know Alistair when I see him. Never left him in the Fade though. One doesn't leave Alistair in the Fade, just how one doesn't turn down Dorian's dance at the Winter Palace.

Seriously, I want them to stop BBC-ing and announce Alicja. Featuring her in the JESC 2020 is a big indication, because they didn't do the same with Tulia. Also, Alicja's voice improved significantly during the JESC 2020 interval!

I do agree. At this stage, why not just announce Alicja as the entrant again. Unless they have difficulty deciding what kind of direction they want to go this year or unsure if Alicja can fit into their directon.

I wonder if it's because since she was unable to perform on the main ESC stage due to the cancellation so they gave her the opportunity to showcase her song in the junior version as sort of a compensation.

Alicja being internally selected is one of the best options Poland has. She'll have a way better chance to stand out by not letting the public choose her own song for ESC.

Lessons learned, do not trust casual viewers. xqueenbitch

Polish broadcaster has terrible music taste and I don't think we should expect anything bearable to listen to ...

Yeah, I'm slightly worried... Empires wasn't too bad, but it was a bit messy in its production and composition, Alicja oversung parts of it and frankly the "Bond-styled" songs imho only works for actual Bond songs (hence I wasn't a fan of Conchita either) but not outside of that....

2014 is the exception from the rule because TVP actually managed to convince ($$$) an already established act to send their hit song without any interference from TVP... 2018-2019 were I guess half-hearted attempts but fell flat nonetheless....

Is that a coincidence? Oh, if only he wanted to take part in ESC...
