Lyrics: Martin Terefe, Sacha Skarbek
Eurovision Song Contest 2012
Final
Final position: 25th
Final points: 12pts

So graceful and pure, a smile bathed in light
No matter the distance, a miracle of sight
Though I should have known, I could not turn away
When faced with your beauty no reason can stay

As you kiss him in the moonlight
With heavy words I say

If you love someone, follow your heart
‘Cause love comes once if you’re lucky enough
Though I’ll miss you forever, the hurt will run deep
Only love can set you free

Trust in your dreams, run with no fear
And if you should stumble remember I’m near
As a ghost I will walk, I’ll look deep in my soul
I might find another, you gave me that hope

So as you kiss him in the moonlight
With heavy words I say

If you love someone, follow your heart
‘Cause love comes once if you’re lucky enough
Though I’ll miss you forever and the hurt will run deep
Only love can set you free

And if you love someone, follow your heart
‘Cause love comes once if you’re lucky enough
Though I’ll miss you forever, the hurt will run deep
Love will set you free, yeah…

  • Josie Howard says:

    I have to sincerely say that this is the best Euro song we have put in for years. I am no fan of Mr Humperdink but this song has the serious hallmark of a winner, it really is a decent actually beautiful song! Sadly, because of the all the silliness with the political voting we have no chance of this wonderful song winning! Well done to whoever wrote it though and to Mr H for singing it so beautifully. It ought to win, I would vote for it but there we go. Sadly Eurovision is not what it was. PS I am not an old person either!!!

  • Jack says:

    I heard his voice in thinking. What a wonderful melodies

  • Kim says:

    I absolutely agree with Josie, best Euro Song for Years! I love the lyrics and it is just such a lovely melody. I hope everynoe votes for it, but i fear that politics will not let it win, which is not what Eurovision ever stood for in the past. I can see this song being a classic and we should be proud of our entry this year.

    good luck UK!

      If you open the infobox underneath the photo at the top of the lyrics, it says who the songwriters are! 🙂
