Read the lyrics to “Only Teardrops,” Emmelie de Forest’s song for Eurovision 2013. She’ll represent Denmark in the first semi-final on May 14.

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?
I 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 this 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?
I 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 come between us? What’s come between us?
Only teardrops
(Tell me now) What’s come between us? What’s 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

Sorry, looks like I got that wrong. Can’t find an *official* source, but going by the video rather than ear and expectation, the lyric above is correct.

The UK are shit outta luck for the douze points from Ireland again this year

Correction (what she actually sings):

Please tell me why, why do we make it so *hard*?
Look at us now, we only got ourselves to blame (No “I”)
