Eurovision Song Contest 2015: Switzerland – “Time To Shine” By Mélanie René

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 Swiss song is called “Time To Shine” and is performed by Mélanie René.

This girl has always excelled in music and in 2010 she came to the United Kingdom to continue her musical training at the ACM (Academy of Contemporary Music) and the BIMM (Brighton Institute of Modern Music) and this is where she wrote “Time To Shine”. Before listening to it I can imagine it’s better than anything the UK has sent to Eurovision in recent years.

Or…perhaps not! There’s too much going on with this song and the only good thing about it is the Adam and the Ants costumes. I’m not sure this will make it past the semi-finals

I’ve been walking in the darkness
Always hiding from my true self
Afraid of letting go, of deception in their eyes
A wounded ego, unafraid to start a fight

I’ve been walking on a lonely road
So many stories I have once been told
No matter what they say I will follow my heart
I think it’s time for me to stand up and hold my ground

Refrain

‘Cause I’m living my dreams, I’ve never been so alive
The sky’s the limit now that I know I can fly
No more pulling me down, no more mucking around
I’m growing up, and it’s my time to shine
It doesn’t matter if I’m wrong or right
I’m getting stronger everytime I try
I’ve learnt to let it go, taking one step at a time
I’ve mend my ego, now it’s time for me to let it shine

Refrain

It’s my time to shine
I’ve been walking in the darkness
Always hiding from my true self
I’ve learnt to let it go, I’ve learnt to let it go, I’ve learnt to let it go
Now it’s my time to shine

Refrain

‘Cause I’m living my dreams, I’ve never been so alive
The sky’s the limit now that I know I can fly
No more pulling me down, no more mucking around
I’m growing up, and it’s my time to shine
it’s my time to shine, it’s my time to shine

 

Good luck Melanie!
