OPINION

Nina has a voice that kind of reminds me of Ellie Goulding – very lazy singing and breathy which is by no means a bad thing. The song isn’t too bad but I was waiting for something that just didn’t come. I’m not sure it has anything special that makes me want to hear it again.

PREDICTION

This will qualify and I expect it to get a lot of votes.

LYRICS

verse1:
Lightning strikes on the sea
Breaking waves around me

Stormy tides and I feel
My ship capsizing

Out of sight – saving shore
Ever gone – evermore

Ropes untied – rain that pours
The waters rising

pre-chorus:
In devastating times
I keep this hope of mine
Even in the darkest night

chorus 1:
’cause there is a light
Guiding my way
Keeping me safe when oceans rage

There in the sky
Hiding away
Never to die and fade

I know that I’ll find your

Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse

verse2:
Harbours near
No more fear
Wall of clouds disappears

So I steer to the pier
In tears – arriving

pre-chorus2:
No devastating times
I kept this hope of mine
Even in the darkest night

chorus 2:
’cause there is a light
Guiding my way
Keeping me safe when oceans rage

There in the sky
Hiding away
Never to die and fade

I know that I’ll find your

Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse

chorus 3:
’cause there is a light
Guiding my way
Keeping me safe when oceans rage

There in the sky
Hiding away
Never to die and fade

I know that I’ll find your

Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse
Your lighthouse

I know that I’ll find your

Good luck Nina!

Let me know your thoughts and keep me from going Eurovision mad!

  1. I don’t really care for her voice with this song. And after listening to it once, I don’t really feel like I need to hear it again. The song itself is well-produced, but there is a bit too much auto-tune for me.
