East Midlands Worldvision 47

This lunch time, EMTV released the details on the debut entry of the East Midlands to the Worldvision Song Contest, which is currently planned
to be held in Hennef, North Rhine Westphalia. When asked about the method on which the entrant would be chosen, Co-Head of Delegation,
AshleyWright said "We discussed many different methods in which we could choose our first ever entry, a national final was on the table
at first, made up of new artists. However, we later decided that we wanted to make a big statement for our first entry, by internally selecting
one of the East Midlands biggest names". Revallsay, The other co-head of delegation, followed this up with "This artist that we have
chosen is no stranger to these contests, she has represented the United Kingdom at Worldvision before, and has even secured numerous wins
in the Forum Song Contest. We are hoping that she will be able to secure that win for us on our debut and bring the contest to the East Midlands".
When asked after this that the rumours about the singer being none other than Ella Henderson, they simply followed up with "We are
not specifically releasing the details on the artists, and instead just on how we came to this decision, we are yet to choose a song and are
continued discussion over the song choice with the singers team, thank you".

WV 47 | Ella Henderson - Ghost
East Midlands


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tA8AfQaUnXM

Lyrics
I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

My friends had you figured out
Yeah, they saw what's inside of you
You tried hiding another you
But your evil was coming through

These eyes sitting on the wall
They watch every move I make
Bright light living in the shade
Your cold heart makes my spirit shake

I had to go through hell to prove I'm not insane
Had to meet the devil just to know his name

And that's when my love was burning
Yeah, it's still burning

[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Each time that I think you're gone
I turn around and you're creeping in
And I let you under my skin
Guess I love living in the sin

Oh you never told me
True love was gonna hurt
True pain I don't deserve
Truth is that I never learn

[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Stop the haunting baby

Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
No more haunting baby

I keep going to the river

[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

WV 48 | Lawson - Learn To Love Again
East Midlands


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irw3IbjP3vQ

Lyrics
There's a place we know
What's cold enough won't grow
We have seen the dark
And the darkness took it's toll
And the journey waits for no one
If no one breaks the mould
And our hearts are stronger than we know

Oooh

That you and I could learn to love again
After all this time
Maybe that is how I knew you were the one
That you could still believe in me again
After all our trials
Maybe that is how I knew you were the one-

To awake and know we made it through the storm
And someone saves their sweet embrace
For you and you alone

Oooh

That you and I could learn to love again
After all this time
Maybe that is how I knew you were the one
That you could still believe in me again
After all our trials
Maybe that is how I knew you were the one.

Silence says we remember
We remember
Two lost souls in the shadow
In the shadows
That is how I knew you were the one
And that is how I knew you were the one.

I have some bad news people, unfortunately Molly has been forced to withdraw from WV49 due to a suspicious incident involving a Curly Wurly Cake. There is an on going investigation into the matter and it is said that Molly will make a full recovery from the incident. However we have been forced to go on an alternate route with our entry and both rev and I have decided to internally select something special to end our time in the East Midlands which we will all hope you will enjoy.

That Curly Wurly cake was obviously a plant. The organizers clearly knew that Molly (although a darling) wasn't strong enough to beat your 2nd placing from the previous edition, so Albania/Belarus style they have ditched her and shall be announcing Katie Price's "Free To Love Again" as their new entry soon. We see right through you East Midlands.

Lyrics
Excuse me for a while
While I知 wide-eyed
And I知 so down, caught in the middle
I致e excused you for a while
While I知 wide-eyed
And I知 so damn caught in the middle

And a lion, a lion roars would you not listen?
If a child, a child cries would you not forgive them?

Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I've never been so wrong
Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I've never been so wrong

Excuse me for a while,
Turn a blind eye
With a stare caught right in the middle
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down
You池e caught in the middle?

If a lion, a lion roars would you not listen?
If a child, a child cries would you not forgive them?

Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I've never been so wrong
Yeah, I might seem so strong
Yeah, I might speak so long
I've never been so wrong

Excuse me for a while
While I知 wide-eyed
And I知 so damn caught in the middle
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down?
You池e caught in the middle

Yeah, I might seem so strong

You did an amazing job with East Midlands. Amazing results, only the big win was missing (but well, Ashley simply got too much free time to become a host ;) )

I deeply enjoyed your WV 48 entry as well as your last entry... Just pure quality songs that got a firm place in my playlist

That's even more impressing considering that Ashley use to have a quite different taste than me :p

Good luck Ashley with England and revallsay with whereever you go to (Poland?) :)
