Finland

Unfortunately I couldn’t go and visit the land of Lordi this time around, but since it’s the day before the 1st semi-final and since I travelled near their neighbors, today you get the Finnish review.

How did Finland get Alyson Hannigan to sing for them? Wait, it’s not Willow from Buffy? Well Finland gets the love award. The song is all about love for another person and how life would just be completely empty without them. It has a very nice melody and I can’t wait to see it performed live. I almost wish she had a little diva inside of her because I feel like the song would be that much better, but divas are best left to the 90s apparently.

Performer: Pernilla
Song title: När Jag Blundar

WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES:

Close together, the scent of the two of us,
Turn around, the same shirt in blue
I know the scent, it’d be nothing without you

Like a sea without water, like a lantern without light,
a life without colours, that’s not who you are.
Someone we see when we close our eyes, like an angel before us
someone who helps us to fly when we’ve forgotten how
A love without feelings, a laughter without sound,
a life without colours, that’s not who you are
Someone who’s forgotten all worries, a woman with courage,
someone who understands even if we speak without words

Sit yourself down, we hold your hand,
Tell us who you are, we are for each other
All those memories would be nothing without you

Like a sea without water, like a lantern without light,
a life without colours, that’s not who you are.
Someone we see when we close our eyes, an angel before us
someone who helps us to fly when we’ve forgotten how
A love without feelings, a laughter without sound,
a life without colours, that’s not who you are.
Someone who’s forgotten all worries, a woman with courage,
someone who understands even if we speak without words

Like a sea without water, like a lantern without light,
a life without colours, that’s not who you are.
Someone we see when we close our eyes, an angel before us
someone who helps us to fly when we’ve forgotten how
A love without feelings, a laughter without sound,
a life without colours, that’s not who you are.
Someone’s who’s forgotten all worries, a woman with courage,
someone who understands even if we speak without words.
