EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2018: LITHUANIA - 'When We're Old' By Ieva Zasimauskaitė

Eurovision 2018 – Lithuania

The Lithuania song is called ‘When We’re Old and performed by Ieva Zasimauskaitė.

ARTIST

Ieva is only 24 years old but has already had a number of achievements as a professional singer. She started music education when she was six years old and took lessons in piano and pop music until she was fifteen. Ieva is no stranger to the Eurovision Family of Events as she had already participated in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest as a backing vocalist when she was fourteen years old.

Ieva’s solo career took off in 2012 when she finished second at The Voice of Lithuania and two years ago she took part in the Lithuanian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest where she reached the finals. This year she is back with When We’re Old which has a lot of meaning to her. The message of this song is that love can last forever, that it is the most powerful thing in this universe and that love can defeat all the fears that we may have.

SONG

Vytautas Bikus is a well-known Lithuanian composer, songwriter and music producer. He has worked with famous Lithuanian artists and has written, produced and co-produced many chart topping hits in his country. He also works as one of the music producers on The X Factor in Lithuania and writes music for film and television. He also wrote the song This Time which was performed by Vaidas Baumila and Monika Linkytė at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest.

OPINION

It’s a ‘tugging at heart strings’ kind of song. It’s sweet but in a way that it doesn’t make me want to be sick like some of the other ‘sweet’ songs this year.

PREDICTION

I think this will qualify and could potentially pick up a good few votes and finish at the top of the right hand side of the leader board.

LYRICS

I know I’ll never forget
That day, the first time we met
We’ve come a long way since then
and I would do it all again

From your very first smile
I knew that I’d walk a mile
See, it’s for real when you know
You never wanna let go

These are the reasons
I want you to know
You make this place feel like home

These are the reasons
I can’t let you go, oh oh
Let’s sing a song that we wrote
When we’re old, ah ah

When we’re old, ah ah

No matter what comes our way
I feel like you’re here to stay
You were there right from the start
And let me inside your heart

After all this time
I hate the sound of goodbye
And if you leave I would…

These are the reasons
I want you to know
You make this place feel like home

These are the reasons
I can’t let you go, oh oh
Let’s sing this song that we wrote
When we’re old, ah ah

When we’re old, ah ah

Right from our very first kiss
I knew it’ll end up like this
I’m not afraid to grow old
If I have your hand to hold
