Lyrics by: Craig Porteils, Cameron Giles-Webb
Language: English
Placing: 7th (120 points)



Take a chance, and take a hold
Give it all and turn it to gold
Time has come, so make a stand
On your own and take command

Beat the odds, you will survive
Stronger now, you feel alive
Rising up, get into place
Feel it in your heart when you are winning this race

When I look into your eyes
It comes as no surprise

This is our night, fly to the top, baby
Yes, we can do it, just wait and see
This is our night, time for a change, baby
Get rid of the old, take a hold and be free

This is our night, fly to the top, baby
Yes, we can do it, just wait and see
This is our night, time for a change, baby
Get rid of the old, take a hold and be free
This is our night

Counting down, the night of nights
Getting now to stand and fight
Don't back down, just look within
Do it now, I know you will

When I look into your eyes
It comes as no surprise

This is our night, fly to the top, baby
Yes, we can do it, just wait and see
This is our night, time for a change, baby
Get rid of the old, take a hold and be free
This is our night

This is our night, fly to the top, baby
Yes, we can do it, just wait and see
This is our night, time for a change, baby
Get rid of the old, take a hold and be free

This is our night, fly to the top, baby
Yes, we can do it, just wait and see
This is our night, time for a change, baby
Get rid of the old, take a hold and be free
This is our night

To me this is the most overrated song of 2009. Sakis can't sing, all he has going for him is his pretty face.
This totally is just annoying and I'm glad it didn't end up in the top 5.

Brilliant choreography and thank Greece for giving us a break from the usual stuff. Agree about Sakis and his singing though! Worst thing is he thinks he's 'it' like Rybak.

The last thing Eurovision needs is a middle-aged man (albeit one who looks a lot younger than he actually is) acting like hes still a teenager

No melody at all... Very cheesy and unoriginal. The moving platform or whatever it was just makes it even worse!

I liked it.

And i think that the performance (not counting the singing part, which was xeek :lol: ) was one of the better ones on this ESC.....but Greece really needs something different next year!

I liked it too. It's much better than Shake It but apparently it's 2009. This year had better performances than any other year from the current decade. I expected a lil' bit more from Fokas, tbh.
Though this song was in my personal top-10.

I agree with this. Although he does look young (he has aged since 04 a lot but still hot), this song didn't suit him.

Also he looked a little arrogant on stage, not as endering as 2004.

Sakis gave his best and made a mediocre song like this one was a wonderful one on stage. Agree this was much better than "shake it".
I think it got what it deserved :)

I remember Oikotimes was posting articles more about him and for Oikotimes,he was the winner.
He was in Romania in his promo tour and he is hot. ;)
But I liked 10000 times more "Shake it"..This song was too.."robotic" :lol: Shake it was something catchy,the performance was great,something to remember after years.With 2009 it wasn't like this.

Sakis has just released his new album. The name of the album is "Parafora".

I like this song more than Shake It,but I'd like them both a lot more if they were sung by someone else.I don't think his voice is anything special.
Yes he looks stunning,and yes he presents himself very well,and yes he can move - but I value a good singing voice over those qualities,and to my ears he just doesn't have it.

Imo not as good as his ESC-entries.

At least it's not a copy of his dance songs that sound all the same.

It's been nearly 6 years, has anyone explained why he rode a giant stapler on stage yet?
