EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2018: BELARUS - 'Forever' By Alekseev

Eurovision 2018 – Belarus

The Belarus song is called ‘Forever and performed by Alekseev.

ARTIST

Alekseev is a Ukrainian singer and songwriter. He first began his career in 2014 after placing as a semifinalist on season four of The Voice of Ukraine. He subsequently released the single “Pyanoye solntse”, which went on to become a number-one hit throughout the former Soviet Union and kickstarted his music career.

SONG

“Forever” is a love song of sorts written by Kyrylo Pavlo and Evhen Matyushenko. It was originally performed in Russian and there was a bit of controversy over whether it broke the rules or not.

LIVE PERFORMANCE

OPINION

I’m not quite sold on this one and I think there were much better songs in the national selection. I really dislike the staging and hope that will change prior to the final in May!

PREDICTION

I think this will qualify as he seems like a popular guy but I think it will struggle to get off the right hand side of the leader board in the grand final.

LYRICS

It must be something that we call love
Wherever I go, I’m coming back
And time cannot knock me off my track
This resolution is final

It must be something that we call love
It’s when you’re craving to say her name
And my reality seems to break
Apart with her arrival

No need to worry, rain falling down
It’s our happiest story and there’s no one around
We will go for it
And I know you’ll be mine forever

Windows wide open, flying so high
Both of us roaming through magnificent sky
Rain keeps on falling
And I’ll know you’ll be mine forever

It must be something that we call dream
When all you told me I know by heart
The type of beauty I call supreme
And how it’s driving me crazy

No need to worry, rain falling down
It’s our happiest story and there’s no one around
We will go for it
And I know you’ll be mine forever

Windows wide open, flying so high
Both of us roaming through magnificent sky
Rain keeps on falling
And I’ll know you’ll be mine forever

You’ll always sing me something new
I will always follow
When I first saw you here I knew
That I was blind before you

No need to worry, rain falling down
It’s our happiest story and there’s no one around
We will go for it
And I know you’ll be mine forever

Windows wide open, flying so high
Both of us roaming through magnificent sky
Rain keeps on falling
And I’ll know you’ll be mine forever
