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​

This is a good effort but I don’t know if it will stand out in the death-semi. Listened to it twice just now and it isn’t exactly giving me goosebumps or anything, but I’ll probably put it on my playlist.

İ like Amnesia much more than Alcohol You. İts rather mid-tempo ballad, not boring

I mean, it‘s nothing I would skip if it was on my playlist, but I probably wouldn‘t pay much attention to it either... Though I‘m not really fond of Victorias songs this year either, her songs have more atmosphere. So the Billie Eilish trophy goes to Bulgaria.

I agree with @Sammy and @mauve.
I've already mentioned that I am disappointed by "Amnesia" - even though it's a decent and nicely produced track but even after listening to it again, I think it's neither remarkable nor memorable.
There's no climax, no catchy hook, no impressive vocals.. To me, it sounds like a dull album track on a newcomer's pop album.

+ is it just more or did they use a lot of effects on her voice as well?

It's sad because "Alcohol You" was quite high in my Top 10 last year and "Amnesia" is already out of my Top 10 right now and we haven't even got more than 14 entries.

my first :0: of the year is here 🥳

at least kudos for the producers for not doing vocal gymnastics putting some high notes she can't reach (unless she has exponentially improved from her 2020 vocals) this time

seriously? below Germany, Albania and Slovenia? I know tastes differ and I haven't even listened to the song, but I just know that Roxen can't be worse.

Last year I disliked "Alcohol you"

But I like this song, it's sweet and she has a nice voice

"Alcohol You" was a :3: for me but this is a :10:, congrants Roxen it's an amazing improvement !

I don't know what to think of Amnesia so far... it's obviously a great effort from Romania, but will it be enough to qualify? :(

It's similar to "Alcohol You" in the sense that it's very monotone... so I'm hoping for a slight revamp for the final minute/thirty seconds. It's pleasant to listen to and I want to listen to it over and over again, and it's a pretty good effort from Romania. Not entirely sure whether it will get through the semi though

So I really like the first verse and chorus. Sounds relaxing and reflective. I don't quite get why they had to ditch that and pick up the pace afterwards. It took me out of the song and made the listening experience overall a lot harder.

4/6 for Half 1, 2/6 for Half 2, all averages out to a :6:.

Not making a judgement just yet until I see the music video but I'm expecting a big staging.

I'm still waiting for the official release, but from what I've heard (demo or not) it's really a downgrade, sadly. I mean, it's nice but I expected more than this one, "Amnesia" sounds like something our music industry would churn out for any random Romanian artist, not the Eurovision entry they've been so secretive about for months.
