OPINION

It has that distinct Cyprus sound, of course. It kind of ticks all the boxes with me. Nice build up, a chorus we can dance around to. Like it!

PREDICTION

I hope this qualifies but as much as I like it I can’t see it standing out too much in the final.

LYRICS

Take a dive, into my eyes
Yeah the eyes of lioness
Feel the power, they ain’t lying

A little look, a little touch
You know the power of silence
Yeah, keep it up, keep it up
