Once upon a time I used to know a girl
Ripped jeans, messy hair, shinin' like a pearl
I guess I'm a day sick, I push the night so far away

If you feel what I feel, see what I see
Don't bring yourself down
You are not alone, not alone now

Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
This world view's in a rush and they say they know it all
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don't worry if it got you
'Cause you're not alone, not alone
I try to fight but it's getting strong, getting strong, getting strong
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don't worry if it got you
'Cause you're not alone

Giving all they want might make you lose control
Take it, breathe in the words like I should know
People always say, "Be careful what you wishin' for"

If you feel what I feel, see what I see
Don't bring yourself down
You are not alone, not alone now

Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
This world view's in a rush and they say they know it all
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don't worry if it got you
'Cause you're not alone, not alone
I try to fight but it's getting strong, getting strong, getting strong
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don't worry if it got you

Self love (self love) is never gone
Self love (self love), put it back on
Oh, self love, self love, you're not alone
Not alone, not alone, self love amnesia

I lost myself tryna have it all
This world view's in a rush and they say they know it all
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don't worry if it got you
'Cause you're not alone, not alone
I try to fight but it's getting strong, getting strong, getting strong
Oh, I lost myself tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don't worry if it got you
'Cause you're not alone​

Since it has been released in my Spotify, let's just say she had already released her entry today and I'll add her to the Participant List. We're just going to wait for the official music video.

And since I've reviewed the song yesterday, I'll add a little note on the song:
I can sense in what direction they want 'Amnesia' to go (a power pop a-la Imagine Dragons, but with a Halsey's kind of delivery), but you also need a good execution and I don't think 'Amnesia' successfully did that. There are no variation given to each chorus to make it sound like we've reached different stages of the song/the chorus all sounds the same. Some sections of the song lacked a filling instrumental/accent sounds and it made the listening experience a bit empty. Overall, it's kind of an acceptable song but also inoffensive. I want to be generous and give it :5: but since I did that to Elena, which has a better song, it's gonna be :3:.

So Finally I can talk about it......

I REALLY LOVE THIS.....Not her best work I know but its very beautiful and when I heard both versions I was blown away from Studio version...... I LOVED that build...Some people hate it because they are disappointed that Roxen didn't provided us with Bops but this as well good. Some people will ruin her career but I don't think so.

P.S Alcohol You is much better than Amnesia but still its beautiful song this is.

Anyway 10/12

So disappointed in this. Roxen was the artist I was most excited for. Last year she blew me away - with her preselection songs AND her Romanian radio hits. But "Amnesia"... it's okay and I will listen to it again. But overall it's just average. Hopefully the stage show is good, otherwise I'm really worried for her. Pitty, really, because there is so much potential here.

Listening to Roxens song was very disappointing for me. 3 points.

Hum I like it over Alcohol You but I'm still not on board with Roxen's voice. Midtempo indeed suits her better though. I like the beat in the 'self-love' part at 2:06, I wish it was longer because it's definitely my favorite part of the song.
At first I was going to give it a 6, because I found it a little too bland, especially the first part, but after a few more listen it's definitely growing on me. I'll leave it at 7 for now :7:

With you here sis, actually like it more than Alcohol You as well and feel like it could be a grower.

I like it.

Me liking a ballad, 2021 is already strange nsnsnsjsjds

I really like Alcohol You but it took me some time to warm up to it.
With Amnesia is instant love! Love the chorus, the progression. Great job. 12 pts

That is all. This makes zero impression on me - a song we've heard a trillion times before, and I really wish she'd stop singing like she's half falling asleep xexcuseme

Not bad, but the Song screams 12th Place in the Semi.
1 Final in 6 Years, who would have thought?
Romania should focus on the Televoter again, like earlier.

So full of shit. xheart

On one hand, a tastefully done mental health awareness anthem, released at a time when youngsters need a little pick me up.

On the other, a song with zero impact and a completely incomprehensible autotune that will probably Srbuk its way out of the contest in the semi (where it will perform in slots #09-to-#12)

I'll give it a :6: but it's more of a 5.5 tbh.

LOVE IT!! no one will be like Roxen and her voice alone deserves the final, if they nail the staging Romania is in no doubt.
