No need to apologize
'Cause there’s nothing to regret
Well, this is not what I wanted
Guess all the good things come to an end

So baby bye, bye
Wish you the best
But most of alI I wish that I could love you less
Well, maybe you're right
I'll find someone else
You say it isn't me, but when did that ever help?

Hold me closer
Although you'll leave before the sunrise
I'll be bleeding, but don't you mind, I'll be fine
Oh, it kills me
I found the right one at the wrong time
But until the sunrise
Hold tight, hold tight

Maybe it happened too fast
I guess that I understand
You say that you've never felt this way for anyone
And that's why it scares you to death

So baby bye, bye
Know it's for the best
Still I can't see how that would ease the pain in my chest

Hold me closer
Although you'll leave before the sunrise
I'll be bleeding, but don't you, mind I'll be fine
Oh, it kills me
I found the right one at the wrong time
But until the sunrise
Could you just hold me tight?
I know, I have to let go, but just give me the night

'Cause tomorrow will hurt
Hurt really bad
'Cause I’m about to lose the best I ever had

Hold me closer
Although you'll leave before the sunrise
I'll be bleeding, but don't you mind, I'll be fine
Oh, it kills me
I found the right one at the wrong time
But until the sunrise
Could you just hold me tight?
I know, I have to let go, but just give me the night (Hold me tight, hold me tight)

Can't you see that you found the right one at the wrong time?
It was just the wrong time
Hold tight, hold tight

Both of Lancelot's released songs are so good and you are sleeping on him. He is basically Clara Klingenstörm 2.0.

Linda Bengtzing, Anna Bergendahl and Tenori are also going to compete (nobody really knows which two people are in Tenori but they are allegedly dark horses to win with an opera concept)

In terms of semi-realistic hopes I'd be happy if Benjamin Ingrosso decided to enter as a songwriter again, as he did quality work with Bishara and has imo come into his own as a decent pop musician. Would be nice to see Hanna Ferm return again with a Swedish song, I think it could be advantageous for her to keep her from becoming an one-hit wonder, but probably not going to happen. My expectations are very low, as Tobbe Ek has said that this year won't have any unexpected names from outside the ESC bubble, but I guess we'll find out soon either way.

Please Sweden I beg you, bring Nathalie Brydolf back xheart
her ballad from 2021 was a very good one but the strange melo modus was her biggest enemy!
some more quality songs (remember statements ect.) need more time - so named plasticpopsongs p.e. with younger good looking boys not so,because here often the moves are more important. xrollinglol
the publication time is in my opinium a way too short.
better publishing all songs one or two weeks before the first semi - it is better and more fair for all participants.xqueenbitch

New names released by Aftonbladet:
* Anders Bagge (Judge in Swedish Idol, was part of Masked Singer earlier this year)
* Lillasyster
* Malin Christin (Wiktoria's big sister, one of the writers behind "Je Me Casse")
* Cornelia Jakobsdotter Samuelsson (formerly a part of Melfest veterans Love Generation)
* Unnamed dansband-singer with success in revues (song described as similar to "Guld och gröna skogar")
On his blog Tobbe Ek also says that there is another rockband in the line-up apart from Lillasyster, but that he hasn't been able to confirm their name.

Other names that supposedly also are confirmed since earlier, but haven't been posted to the forum are:
* Faith Kakembo
* Niello (some sort of pop-rapper)
* Omar Rudberg (if his schedule allows it)
* Medina (one-hit wonder duo from the mid 2010s)

This actually sounds promising, modern and catchy indie pop! Been nominated for P3 Guld as well. Hopefully there's another nice surprise like this in the second half of artists.

Hmmmm not that promising for now..
Im really glad Faith Kakembo is back, I loved her entry, but I kinda knew if she comes back she will be here with a “known MF” songwriting team. :(
Another one who is promising for now is Cazzi Opeia, due to different approach and interesting songwriting team behind it, Paul Rey included. :D
