Eurovision Song Contest 2017: Austria - "Running On Air" By Nathan Trent

Eurovision 2017 – Austria

The Austria song is called “Running On Air” and performed by Nathan Trent.

ARTIST

Nathan Trent is a singer and songwriter in the genres of Pop and R’n’B. Born in 1992 in Innsbruck, Austria, he was raised bilingually in Italian and German within an artistic family. By sending him to private lessons in violin and piano at the age of three, his parents laid the foundations for his future. Given the fact that his father plays the violin professionally in the orchestra of the National Theatre of Innsbruck, Nathan practically grew up in the theatre. As a child he participated in various plays and musicals which brought him closer to singing at a very young age.

SONG

Nathan was invited to submit a song and convinced ORF to select him for Kyiv. Nathan’s wrote the song ‘Running on Air’.

OPINION

I think I actually liked this song before I even heard it just by looking at him. He has to be one of the best looking men in the competition this year. Once I heard the song I was really pleased I liked it too. It’s really nice! I could find myself watching this video on repeat quite easily!

PREDICTION

If this doesn’t qualify I will be very disappointed. As much as I like it though, it’s not a winner but I certainly see it doing well and reaching the left hand side of the leader board.

LYRICS

‘It’s been a long time running
‘Cause I had some things to see
I had to meet some people
Who were there to believe in me

I’m taking all that struggle
Reminds me what I’m fighting for
I’m living it up, I ain’t gonna stop
Till I make that final score

And I’ll keep running as fast as I can
I’ll keep running
I won’t stop, I won’t stop, no no

Hey now, if you push me down I’ll get up again
Hey now, if you let me drown I’ll swim like a champion
I’m sure there’ll be good times, there’ll be bad time
But I don’t care ’cause I’m running on air
(Running, running) Yeah

Give me a million reasons
But my answer stays the same
You can try to put me in a box
But I’m doing it my own damn way

See I can stand them talkers
All pretending that their lives’ a mess
‘Cause whatever you want, whatever you need
You gotta get off your…

And I’ll keep running as fast as I can
I’ll keep running
I won’t stop, I won’t stop

Hey now, if you push me down I’ll get up again
Hey now, if you let me drown I’ll swim like a champion
I’m sure there’ll be good times, there’ll be bad time
But I don’t care ’cause I’m running on air

Hey, I’m running on air
Running, running on air
(Oh whoa… oh whoa…) Running, running
Now I don’t care

Hey now, if you push me down I’ll get up again
Hey now, hey now

Yeah… (Oh whoa… oh whoa…)
You can push me, push me down
(Oh whoa… oh whoa…) Hey now
But I’ll get up again

I’m sure there’ll be good times, there’ll be bad time
But I don’t care ’cause I’m running on air’
