OPINION

It’s a beautiful, simple love song well performed that’s for sure but is it so lovey and beautiful that it makes me want to me a little bit sick in my mouth – maybe! I think they have taken a leaf out of Portugals song book from 2017 (as is always the case).

PREDICTION

They will certainly get the cute vote and I think this song will divide people – they will either love it or hate it. I don’t think they will be last this year but they won’t be far away from the bottom of the score board.

LYRICS

ORIGINAL LYRICS (Spanish)

Nunca llegué a imaginar

Que viajar a la luna sería real

Lo pones todo al revés

Cuando besas mi frente y descubro por qué

Ya no puedo

Inventarlo

Siento que bailo por primera vez

Eres el arte que endulza la piel

De mi mente viajera que sigue tus pies

Siento que bailo por primera vez junto a ti, oh

Sé que en ti puedo encontrar

Esa voz que me abriga si el tiempo va mal

Todo es perfecto si estás

A mi lado creando una nueva ciudad

Siento que bailo por primera vez

Eres el arte que endulza la piel

De mi mente viajera que sigue tus pies

Siento que bailo por primera vez

Ya no puedo

Inventarlo

Solo quiero

Tu canción, oh, oh, oh

Siento que bailo por primera vez

Eres el arte que endulza la piel

De mi mente viajera que sigue tus pies

Siento que bailo por primera vez junto a ti, oh

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

I would have never imagined

that travelling to the Moon could be something real

You turn everything upside down

when you kiss my forehead I discover the reason

I can no longer

Invent it

I feel like I’m dancing for the first time

You’re the art that sweetens the skin

From my traveller mind, that follows your feet

I feel like I’m dancing for the first time by your side, oh

I know that in you I can find

that voice that warms me when the weather’s not good

Everything’s perfect if you’re

by my side creating a new city

I feel like I’m dancing for the first time

You’re the art that sweetens the skin

From my traveller mind, that follows your feet

I feel like I’m dancing for the first time by your side, oh

I can no longer

Invent it

I just want

Your song, oh, oh, oh

I feel like I’m dancing for the first time

You’re the art that sweetens the skin

From my traveller mind, that follows your feet

I feel like I’m dancing for the first time by your side, oh
