The sky is red tonight
We’re on the edge tonight
No shooting star to guide us

Eye for an eye, why tear each other apart?
Please tell me why, why do we make it so hard?
Look at us now, we only got ourselves to blame
It’s such a shame

How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules between us?
Only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right between us?
Only teardrops

So come and face me now
Here on the stage tonight
Let’s leave the past behind us

Eye for an eye, why tear each other apart?
Please tell me why, why do we make it so hard?
Look at us now, we only got ourselves to blame
It’s such a shame

Tell me
How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules between us?
Only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right between us?
Only teardrops

(Tell me now) What’s gone between us has come between us
Only teardrops
(Tell me now) What’s gone between us has come between us

How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules between us?
Only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right between us?
Only teardrops, only teardrops

Only teardrops
Only teardrops

How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules between us?
Only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right between us?
Only teardrops

    Only 7 songs chosen for Malmo so far and I can already predict that this will be a favourite for top 5!

  • Annette Jensen says:

    Teardrops with Emilie de Forest is a WINNER – it is a wonderful song!
    Good look to Emilie

  • robert says:

    i do like the song i wood think this should win

  • luke says:

    At first I didn’t like this song for some reason (during Dansk Melodi) but I love it now. This song definitely deserves to go to the final. I encourage every one to at least, listen to it first before judging. I almost ignored this song.

  • Rifky says:

    This song has great message , it tells about love, peace and war.

    • woei says:

      I totally agree with u! I am from Taiwan and live in Norway now. I also watched eurovision at Saturday night. When i heard this song, i had the same feeling as u have. Then, i tried to find this lyric. I think it also meets the current situation of EU and the history of Europeans. What a good meaning of this beautiful song. I know EU have bad time now, so hope this song brings u a better solution for ur future and helps u to go through the difficulty u have now. No matter who u r and where u r in European. My best wish to u, my European friends.

    • Florence says:

      I totally agree with you. It has a universal message.

  • Victor Jimbu says:

    Great! Lovely song! Last year Sueden, now Denmark. Hope will win. For sure has to go to final.

  • Victor Jimbu says:

    Great! Lovely song! Last year Sweden, now Denmark. Hope will win. For sure has to go to final.

  • Kate says:

    Seriously? This song is awful. Clearly written by non-native English speakers. Really hope this does not win and reward yet another non-English speaker for their bad English lyric writing!!!

    • Grant says:

      What a bigotted response!

      With hatred like that on board, you must have been molested as a child.

      Crawl back into the 18th century!

    • John Clarke says:

      When has the Eurovision been about English lyrics?

    • Stratos says:

      As you can see now.. the song won..
      Also.. its very difficult to use English correctly in song writing.. All the songs have some phrases that the sentences aren’t correct

  • lis says:

    I’m English born and bred living in england and I absolutely fell in love with this song it really deserve to win I think good luck Denmark:)

  • Susan says:

    Fantastic song. Thrilled it got through to final. Well deserved. The tin whistle at the start is a sure turn on for us Irish!

  • Kate says:

    Really? This thrills you? I think countries should be required to sing in their native language so that we can get rid of the awful English that we have to suffer through each year!

    • Anastasia says:

      At least she has a beautiful voice dear Kate, how many languages do you speak that makes you an expert?

    • Rowen says:

      Just shut the fuck up biach 🙂 It’s a great song

    • Oksana says:

      I do agree, that the paticipants should sing in their own languages, but not because their English is as bad as you state it (which is very unpolite and snobbish of you). It is rather the urgent necessity to get rid of the English language dominance in the field of music and to foster the entrance of other beautiful languages and cultures on the stage. By the way, it’s a wonderful song with an unforgettable flair! Emmelie is a natural talent and beauty!

  • dean says:

    • Emmelie De Forest - Only says:

      aND you are the better!!!!!!!!!
      I DON’T NO WHY AZERBAIJAN COMING THE THIRD
      Why??????
      Denmark is the best and russian and finland

      • Aynur says:

        Hey, please be fair and respect all countries’ songs. And Azerbaijan is in 2nd place not 3rd ! And I think that isn’t polite what you say!!!!!!! You think so!??!

  • Tom Frandsen says:

    The song was a clear winner. Congratulations. The song says something important about being able to provide as a human being when it’s time. Humanism in a larger perspective. God’s perspective.

  • Art Ger says:

    An over-repeated chorus, dressed with a few starting off and in between lines, a catchy tune, a pretty girl……. It’s a winner alright!

  • Marty Hansen says:

    The stanzas are lovely, and universal; however, I don’t see how they add up to or even transition to the title???

  • Aynur says:

    I’m from Azerbaijan and this song is awesome and it won the Eurvision 2013 song Conest and Azerbaijan was in 2nd place Congrats Denmark! 🙂

  • john pilgaard says:

    det er jo klart, nogle holder med dem fra deres eget land, men det gælder, lad den bedstre vinde, god pince. <3

  • Rikke says:

    This message is for Kate the native English speaker. Well I’m a native Danish speaker. My English is not perfect, well I’m sorry if that offends you. But my bad English helps both of us to communicate, and to be able to understand eachother. The same as the lyrics in a song. Lyrics is poetry and therefore beyond grammar and rules. Music and lyrics is meant to talk to our feelings – to help us understand – to build bridges in stead of borders. Congratulations to Emilie and the People behind you. Wishing you all peace and harmony, especially to Kate the native English speaker.

  • Bota says:

    I love this song and Emmilie! You are the best! My congratulations from Kazakhstan!!!

  • Artur says:

    My congratulations to Denmark! And this is my opinion for the song and winner: I think that if you win, than it itself means that you deserve to be the winner. The song was great and was sung good. Emm is beautiful and I like her very much. But I have to notice that the music style of the song and she herself reminded me of Shakira and her music style of one of her songs… I want to wish to Emm of good performances in the future and good luck in career. Come to Russia, city of Pyatigorsk. Like your song very much.

  • Evee says:
