After a really really long and drawn out selection process, I felt that this song is the one that had to represent Lithuania this year. There were so many good options and songs that I loved, but ultimately the one that I chose is just art and the reason why music is one of the greatest forms of expression. This song is written in memory of Evgenya Redko's mother that passed, I recommend reading the lyric translation. Also, I know not everyone here watches the music videos, but I encourage to do it at least once (perhaps after the votes are in), because it is lokwey probably the best music video ever produced in Lithuania.

Evgenya Redko - Laikinai (Temporarily)

 

 

Lyrics:

 

[Intro]
Laikinai, aplink pasaulis griuvo / Temporarily, the world crashed down around me
Laikinai, laikas sustojo atsitiktinai / Temporarily, time stopped accidentally
Mano gyvenime tu laikinai / You're in my life temporarily
Kodėl taip laikinai? / Why so temporarily?

[Pre-Chorus]
Tikiuosi tau lengva / I hope it's not tough for you
Užmigus visam laikui, sąmanos dengia / Sleeping for eternity covered with moss
Tu mano atminty, bet man tavęs stinga / You're in my memory, but there's not enough of you
Tavo pataluos šįryt sninga, šįryt sninga / It's snowing in your bed this morning, it's snowing this morning

[Chorus]
(Degi ugnimi, degi ugnimi amžina) / You burn with flame, you burn with eternal flame
(Degi ugnimi, degi ugnimi amžina) / You burn with flame, you burn with eternal flame
Tiems kurių neliko / To those who are no longer with us
Tiems kuriuos širdy amžiais laikysim / Those that we will forever hold in our hearts
Tiems kurie mus gynė / To those that defended us
Angelai sparnus nelaiku nupynė / Angels gave them wings too early

[Post-Chorus]
Degi ugnimi amžina / You burn with eternal flame
Degi ugnimi, laikinai / You burn with flame, temporarily

[Verse]
Mačiausi aš tavo atvaizde / I saw myself in your image
Ir liūdesy ir rūpesty veide / In sadness and in worry on your face
Abiejų jaučiamam skausme / In the pain that we've felt together
Jaučiamam skausme / In the pain that we've felt

[Pre-Chorus]
Tikiuosi tau lengva / I hope it's not tough for you
Užmigus visam laikui, sąmanos dengia / Sleeping for eternity covered with moss
Tu mano atminty, bet man tavęs stinga / You're in my memory, but there's not enough of you
Tavo pataluos šįryt sninga, šįryt sninga / It's snowing in your bed this morning, it's snowing this morning

[Chorus]
Tiems kurių neliko / To those who are no longer with us
Tiems kuriuos širdy amžiais laikysim / Those that we will forever hold in our hearts
Tiems kurie mus gynė / To those that defended us
Angelai sparnus nelaiku nupynė / Angels gave them wings too early

[Post-Chorus]
Degi ugnimi amžina / You burn with eternal flame

[Outro]
Šiąnakt nebegrįši / You won't be coming back tonight
Dangaus pakelėse susitiksim / We'll meet in the roadsides of heaven
Šiąnakt nebеgrįši / You won't be coming back tonight
Išsiskyrėm mes tik laikinai / We were separated, but only temporarily

I will be joining team Denmark once again! :DEN

 

Looking forward to revisiting Krakow. Had some fine experiences there some years ago and some delicious food in Kazmierz. Will a guided tour in the wieliczka salt mine be included?

Yes, salt mine will be included, one of the most recognizable places in the area can't be missed ;)  The organizing committee will also offer trips to other cities a bit away from Krakow :)

So Werloc finally knows how it feels to be an American juror (as in, purposely not entering an eligible song that could win)... :whistle:

What do you mean by that? :lol:

 

I had 11 really really good songs that I would've been happy with. In the end, I decided to go with one that felt most unique and I thought it would be nice to not send a repeat artist as well.

Sounds lovely. If I can get the same old guide as last time I visited it would be perfect. She was great. But I'll need some time for the beers and vodka as well!
