EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2019: CZECH REPUBLIC - 'Friend Of A Friend' By Lake Malawi

EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2019: CZECH REPUBLIC – ‘Friend Of A Friend’ By Lake Malawi

Eurovision 2019 – Czech Republic

By Steve McSteveface

The Czech Republic song is called ‘Friend Of A Friend and is performed by Lake Malawi.

ARTIST

Lake Malawi is an indie-pop band founded in 2013 by Albert Černý. The name of the band is inspired by a Bon Iver song.

Since the very beginning, Lake Malawi always aimed to make it outside of their home country Czech Republic and as a consequence performs in English. The band consists of Albert Černý (lead vocal, guitar), Jeroným Šubrt (bass and keys), Antonín Hrabal (drums) and Pavel Palát (drums).

SONG

The song seems to be about those relationships that go from being really important to someone that we might walk past in the street.

LIVE PERFORMANCE

OPINION

They look like fun guys and perform the song well and after the first listen I did want to listen to it again so that’s a good sign.

PREDICTION

I think this depends a lot on the running order, it could possibly get lost. I see it picking up a regular low points and might finish at the top of the left hand side of the leader board.

LYRICS

“Can you hear it?

There’s someone behind the wall making the same sounds
Can you hear it?
It sounds like you and me when we’re making love
Who is it?
You said you wish they weren’t taking such a long time
She was my neighbour when we were thirteen
She moved back in
There’s not much between us now
Do you know what I mean?
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend
She’s never home ‘cause she plays in a band
I don’t know if you’d understand
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
I had a dream that she walked through the door
I can’t recall her name anymore
Please believe me, I’m your man
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
(I’m only a friend)
Can you feel it?
There’s someone sliding up and down the ceiling
Breathing, he is synchronizing with her beating heart
(With her beating heart)
She was my neighbour when we were thirteen
She moved back in
There’s not much between us now
Do you know what I mean?
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend
She’s never home ‘cause she plays in a band
I don’t know if you’d understand
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
I had a dream that she walked through the door
I can’t recall her name anymore
Please believe me, I’m your man
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
(I’m only a friend)
(I’m only a friend)
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend
She’s never home ‘cause she plays in a band
I don’t know if you’d understand
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
I had a dream that she walked through the door
I can’t recall her name anymore
Please believe me, I’m your man
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend”
