I’ve tried to write
A million other songs but
Somehow I can’t move on, oh you’re gone

Takes time, alright
And I know it’s no one’s fault but
Somehow I can’t move on, oh you’re gone

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Tem tanto que trago comigo
Foi sempre o meu porto de abrigo
E agora nada faz sentido
Perdi o meu melhor amigo

E se não for demais
Peço por sinais
Resta uma só palavra

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

I’ve tried, alright
But it’s killing me inside
Thought you’d be by my side always

600 entries vying for only 4/20 slots in FdC. Seems a little too little to me but we'll see.
Hopefully this time around RTP will actually select the 4 best entries of that groups as well, I have a very hard time believing there weren't much better entries in the open submissions in the past few years than the ones we ended up having go through to the NF.

Is it likely that it will be another 49 years before we see another Portugal win? Or even top 5? It feels like 2017 was a fluke. Praying not because :pt: are one of my favourite nations in ESC

At this point we don't know if the composers will be same as the singers, but if Aurea, Agir or Syro will singer their songs they could win easily the top 3 of both public and judges, as they are very big names on the portuguese music scene.The singers and songs will most likely be revealed in January, 1 month before the first semifinal of Festival da Canção.

I think it's quite likely that at least 2 of these 3 will also be singers... (IMO)
but Carolina Deslandes didn't win last year and she was a much bigger name than Black Mambas.

I'm still recovering from the ugly divorce with Portugal this year when they chose the one and only awful song in their NF. I am sitting on the fence already though, hoping and praying for something to fall in love with.

Hum, so you should be ready for the next round. If the rumors are correct, Aurea will present a song in English and sing it by herself.

In his instagram he hinted that he will not be singing it, it could be a downgrade or an upgrade, depending on who will be performing it on stage

I was rooting for NEEV. Black Mamba's song was so lazy and drowzy
