OPINION:

Disappointingly the Latvian entry is performed in English. It’s a cute folk song that will have you singing the chorus with them before you know it!

PREDICTION:

I hope this will qualify but it won’t gain too many points at the end of the night, so I expect this to come somewhere towards the bottom of the points table.

LYRICS:

“It was a lonely night
No stars were shining, there was no light
One troubled thought broke through
And colored my world so blue

Lo-o-o-o-ove, where are you?
Lo-o-o-o-ove, I need you
Lo-o-o-o-ove, all night through
Where are you, my love? Oh

I travelled through the time
It felt for me like doing a crime
My mind did crazy things
Imagination opened their wings

A river dark as coal
It took me far away from the shore
Please come to me ’till sunrise
And take me back to my paradise

Lo-o-o-o-ove, where are you?
Lo-o-o-o-ove, I need you
Lo-o-o-o-ove, all night through
Where are you, my love? Oh
Lo-o-o-o-ove, where are you?
Lo-o-o-o-ove, I need you
Lo-o-o-o-ove, all night through
Lo-o-o-o-ove, oh”
