Eurovision Song Contest 2015: France – “N’oubliez Pas” By Lisa Angell

Eurovision 2015 is almost upon us and now that all the countries have chosen their singers and song let’s give them the once-over. The French

song is called “N’oubliez Pas” and is performed by Lisa Angell.

Lisa has a powerful voice and has always dreamed of becoming a singer. With a couple of successful albums already under her belt she is proud to represent her country on the Eurovision stage.

I love this. I imagine this girl is the French version of the UK’s Adele. It’s a beautiful song, beautifully sung but as I always say – the dictionary could be sung in a French accent and I would still love it.

 

Performer: Lisa Angell
Song title: N’oubliez Pas
Song writer(s): Laure Izon / M. Albert
Song composer(s): Michel Illouz / M. Albert

All that remains to me are tears
These few notes that come from long ago
And the song of our prayers
Our hearts that hope
And the emptiness under my steps

All that remains to me are ashes
Of my village plunged into silence
I am but a wound
A heart without an armour
How do I survive after this

But I am here, I don’t forget
In my village swept away by history
And I live here, don’t you forget
Erased from maps and memories

I remember the laughter of children
The voices of men when they left for the field
The harvest festivals
The smell in the houses
The bursts of love and joy

But I am here, I don’t forget
In my village swept away by history

When they arrived
Hidden behind their weapons
They were thousands
They laughed at our tears

They wished to destroy
Our beliefs and our souls
With words of hatred
That we did not know

I am here tonight
In the middle of these ruins
To talk to you about hope
And to sing life
And I swear
When the blood will dry
That I will rebuild my city
More beautiful than before

But don’t forget

Lots of luck Lisa Angell
