Lyrics

Hey

I don’t know what you’re thinking
I see something in your eyes
Let me be the one to dry those
tears you hide

I know a simple song
can’t take away the pain you feel
Like a band-aid to the soul
it could help you heal

I’ve seen darkness leading you astray
Trust your heart and find your own way

This is a song for all the broken
We gotta believe we’ll win some day

There’s always some good in all the evil
That’s just the way of life
It’s like a bitter lullaby

Na na na
Nanana Na na na

Heavy is the burden
for all of us on earth

Some of us do good things
other causes hurt

What I’m trying to say is
it doesn’t matter how

We always gotta keep on moving
gotta walk through the fire

I won’t let the darkness lead me astray no
I walk my own way

This is a song for all the broken
We gotta believe we’ll win some day

There’s always some good in all the evil
That’s just the way of life

This is your life
So live with no regrets

Yeah it’s your life
A bitter lullaby

Na na na
Nanana Na na na

Na na na
Nanana Na na na

Na na na
Nanana Na na na

Na na na
Nanana Na na na

This is a song for all the broken
We gotta believe we’ll win some day
There’s always some good in all the evil
That’s just the way of life

This is a song for all the broken
We gotta believe we’ll win some day
There’s always some good in all the evil
That’s just the way of life
It’s like a bitter lullaby

Lyrics

Stark
Staark

 

Måste ta mig tillbaka
kan det nånsin gå
När ingenting tycks skydda mig

Kan du se min skugga
kan du nånsin förstå
Att jag blöder som mest när natten faller på

Har alltid trott på kraften inom mig
Ooooh mitt löfte är att vara sann

Ge mig mod ge mig tid det ordnar sig
Om jag minns mitt rätta namn

Föll så hårt
men en diamant kan ej bli aska

Obrytbar
jag kan övervinna allt

Stark
Stark

Tog mig tid att vakna
drömmer nu som då
Men hjärtat säger aldrig nej

Har alltid trott på kraften inom mig
Mitt löfte är att vara sann

Föll så hårt
men en diamant kan ej bli aska

Obrytbar
jag kan övervinna allt

Stark
Stark
Oooooohooo

Har alltid trott på kraften inom mig
Ohooo mitt löfte är att vara sann
Ge mig mod ge mig tid det ordnar sig

Föll så hårt
oohooooooo

Har alltid trott på kraften inom mig
mitt löfte är att vara sann

Har alltid trott på kraften inom mig
mitt löfte är att vara sann
Stark

Jag har hittat mitt andra hem

Där palmerna svajar och sanden bränns

Vi drar till stranden
Håll mig i handen

Eyo eyo eyo eyo

Här finns så vackra kvinnor
Jag blir galen när jag ser på dig

Rör på dina höfter
Uppenbart att du vill reta mig

Cray cray gäri cray cray
Dör för mina flätor och min fade

Hänger vid poolen
Där under solen
sjunger vi sånger som alla kan

Vi drar till stranden
Håll mig i handen
så dansar vi hårt som f*n

Ta en Cuba Libre Cuba Libre dansa
Dansa som aldrig förr

Ta en Cuba Libre Cuba Libre dansa

Lyrics

I’ll get up in the morning
I’ll do my hair and I’ll put my make up on

Focused trying to move on
trying walk away from all that’s done

Monday was a bad day like no other day
He turned and walked away
And now I’m the greatest cliché

I’m gonna freak on the weekend
Gonna dance like a mother
You’ll hear my party voice

I’ll be a freak for a week
And then I’ll move on like no other
You’ll hear my party voice

Wrong turn once or twice
Took the wrong advice
Stumbled agonized ohooooho

I’m gonna freak on the weekend
gonna dance like a mother
You’ll hear my party voice

I’m not changin I’m good still breathing
I’m stronger than I thought I could be

Time’s on my side he lost when he lied
The cost is high cause he’s loosing me

Tuesday was a battle like no other day
Wednesday Thursday too
But Friday is my day who knew

I’m gonna freak on the weekend
Gonna dance like a mother
You’ll hear my party voice

I’ll be a freak for a week
And then I’ll move on like no other
You’ll hear my party voice

Wrong turn once or twice
Took the wrong advice
Stumbled agonized ohooooho

I’m gonna freak on the weekend
gonna dance like a mother
You’ll hear my party voice

Let you walk
Let you walk
Let you walk away

Let you walk
Let you walk
Let you walk away

I’m gonna freak on the weekend
Gonna dance like a mother
You’ll hear my party voice

I’ll be a freak for a week
And then I’ll move on like no other
You’ll hear my party voice

Wrong turn once or twice
Took the wrong advice
Stumbled agonized ohooooho

I’m gonna freak on the weekend
gonna dance like a mother
You’ll hear my party voice

I’m gonna freak on the weekend
gonna dance like a mother
You’ll hear my party voice

Kalle says that it’s a song that is deeply rooted in Swedish folk music with clear insights of violins

Lyrics

Elden jag såg den falna
Jag såg ljuset brinna ut

Och drömmen den sjönk i dvala
När mitt hjärta gick itu

Nu åker jag längs med fälten
Och natten den är förbi

Nu är jag fri
Här vill jag bli
Nu för resten av mitt liv

Jag vill leva livet jag kasta mig ut
Gå dit jag aldrig varit förut

Känna hur hjärtat klappar ännu
Fånga min dröm igen

Jag vill leva livet varje minut
Se hela världen öppen och ljus

Finna min väg och följa den nu
Fånga min dröm igen

Morgonen den har vaknat
Nu har ljuset återvänt

Och här mellan berg och dalar
Tar vi vägen ända hem

Nu är jag fri
Här vill jag bli
Nu för resten av mitt liv

Jag vill leva jag vill kasta mig ut
Gå dit jag aldrig varit förut

Känna hur hjärtat klappar ännu
Fånga min dröm igen

Jag vill leva livet varje minut
Se hela världen öppen och ljus

Finna min väg och följa den nu
Fånga min dröm igen

Jag känner hur hjärtat klappar ännu
Fånga min dröm igen

Jag vill leva livet varje minut
Se hela världen öppen och ljus

Finna min väg och följa den nu
Fånga min dröm igen

Finna min väg och följa den nu
Fånga min dröm igen

 

6.Dotter – Cry

An interesting fact about Dotter is that she is was of the song writers of last year’s Mariette’s entry, A million years. According to Christer Björkman it’s an incredibly modern, cool pop ballad.  Dotter says that she got the song when it finished and went in and changed the melody so that it really would be “me”.

Lyrics

You better go and wipe out the doubt in your head
Go and tell him you leavin and kick him right out of your bed

I’ve been keepin’ it quiet but now imma tell you the truth
He has always been on it and he never cared about you

In other words
In other words
I’ll always be here by your side
and I hope you’ll find
some peace of mind

Cry him out tonight
Cry your heart right out

But he ain’t worth it
Deep down you know it

Go say goodbye and pack your bags
and let him know

Cry him out tonight
I’ll dry your tears but now it’s time you let him go

He’s got your love in a box your heart on the floor
I’ve been watching him do what he does I ain’t gonna no more

I bet all a of my dollars I’m burning them up in flames
That he thought he could go and have you play all of his games

In other words
In other words
I’ll always be here by your side
You’ll be just fine

Cry him out tonight
Cry your heart right out

But he ain’t worth it
Deep down you know it

Go say goodbye and pack your bags
and let him know

Cry him out tonight
I’ll dry your tears but now it’s time you let him go

Go cry him out
Until he’s gone and you dried out
You know you better off without

Cryyyyy
Cry him out tonight

But he ain’t worth it
Deep down you know it

Go say goodbye and pack your bags
and let him know

Cry him out tonight

I’ll dry your tears but now it’s time you let him go

 

7.Méndez – Everyday

Mendez returns to Melodifestivalen after 15 years. Daniel Koivunen, Vicky Pérez, Felicia Maurice, Marlene Lindahl, Jennifer Wallin & Niklas Arleryd shall be his dancers on stage. A very golden backdrop and smoke are expected during this entry. Christer Björkman comments that Moncho with “Cuba Libre” moves in the same genre and battles a bit against Mendez while Mendez states that it’s Latin and a little romance. It’s an explosion of Latin American rhythms,  he usually describe it as Latin America meets Europe. It makes you dance and fall in love, you get rid of it.

Lyrics

Sin ti amor no me paro
Siento que sale caro
Estar sin
sin tu amor

Me siento con un veterano
Y a la vez nunca le ganó
Empiezo a
desvanecer

So come on baby run with me
Sing this simple melody
I can’t get you off my mind

We were always meant to be
You’re my ocean you’re my sea
You’re my push play and rewind

Everyday
Every night
Every time you make it alright

Gotta stay cool
Gotta get high
Living my lalalalalife

Everyday
Every night
Every time we’re saying goodbye

Wanna play cool
Wanna get high
Living my lalalalalife

Ya soy como un faro
No ver me sale raro
A ciegas
mi corazon

Ven y toma mi mano
Mi alma está en reparo
Empieza
a renacer

So come on baby run with me
Sing this simple melody
I can’t get you off my mind

We were always meant to be
You’re my ocean you’re my sea
You’re my push play and rewind

Everyday
Every night
Every time you make it alright

Gotta stay cool
Gotta get high
Living my lalalalalife

Everyday
Every night
Every time we’re saying goodbye

Wanna play cool
Wanna get high
Living my lalalalalife

Everyday
Every night
Every time you make it alright

Gotta stay cool
Gotta get high
Living my lalalalalife

Everyday
Every night
Every time we’re saying goodbye

Wanna play cool
wanna get high
Living my lalalala life
