Serbia

Today’s award is given to Mr. Joksimović and shall be known as the fake award. Watch how Željko smirks the whole time pleading with the audience, “come back home with me.” He seems to be a player of sorts and has an aura that he can get any woman in the room. If this song was about passion that would have been perfect, if this song had been about his love-making skills that would have been perfect, if this song had been about his man-hood that would have been perfect, but it is not.

Serbia’s song this year is about a man who has lost his lover. Not just any lover mind you, but the only love he has ever loved. “I’ve only ever loved you” Željko says in multiple ways and implies that he will never love another person again. Yet, as stated before, Željko seems to be trying to get everyone from the audience to fall in love with him and come back home with him. For someone who just love his love he seems way to happy and way to exuberant. If he had showed his emotions more correctly I would have liked this song much more.

Better luck next time,
You say that so easily.
I can see we’re over now,
But it could have been so good.
Know that even if you leave,
Something yours will stay.

Love is not a thing,
That I can just give back to you.
This is only me,
I’ve only ever loved you

Love is not a thing,
That I don’t know what do to with,
I wish you just the best,
This love is my sinking ship.

Your love is not a thing,
That I can just give back to you.
This is only me,
I’ve only ever loved you.

My love is not a thing,
That I don’t know what to do with,
I wish you just the best,
This is my sinking ship.

Go,just, just go,
Fly away, sing,
Give your heart to someone else,
But know
That goodbye is not the end.

My love is not a thing,
That I don’t know what to do with,
I wish you just the best,
This is my sinking ship.
