OPINION

This was my favourite from the selection process ever since I heard the opening few notes. It is very reminiscent of ‘Titanium’ by David Guetta ft. Sia which is perhaps no surprise considering the song writers.

Levina delivers it well and has good stage presence as well as a voice which feels like it could actually turn into Sia at any moment. One of my favourites of all the countries so far.

PREDICTION

If she can ‘nail’ the vocals and this is backed up by some stunning staging this could definitely finish in the top ten!

LYRICS

‘I come alive
Inside the light of the unexpected
Maybe I thrive
Outside the comfort zone
What is a prize without a fight
Yeah I got addicted
To what I thought I wanted
And all along

I’ve been walking asleep
Dreaming awake
Finding I bend but I don’t break
Almost a sinner
Nearly a saint
Finding with every breath I take
I’m not afraid
Of making mistakes
Sometimes it’s wrong before it’s right
That’s what you call a perfect life

Gathering thorns from the stems of a thousand roses
Weathering storms on the long way home
I look for the sweet in every bitter moment tasted
In every last mistake I see the other side

I’ve been walking asleep
Dreaming awake
Finding I bend but I don’t break
Almost a sinner
Nearly a saint
Finding with every breath I take
I’m not afraid
Of making mistakes
Sometimes it’s wrong before it’s right
That’s what you call a perfect life

Don’t need a resolution
To know I’ll be alright
I’ll be alright

I’ve been walking asleep
Dreaming awake
Finding I bend but I don’t break
Almost a sinner
Nearly a saint
Finding with every breath I take
I’m not afraid
Of making mistakes
Sometimes it’s wrong before it’s right
That’s what you call a perfect
That’s what you call a perfect life

I come alive
Inside the light of the unexpected’
