Discuss: Children of the Universe could win Eurovision for the UK

Molly Smitten-Downes’s ears are probably burning: Everyone in Eurovision Nation is talking about her right now. Well, everyone in Britain, anyway. We’ve just read the “Children of the Universe” lyrics, and it’s clear that the UK is in it to win it this year.

Molly brings everything we love about Brit pop—independence, edge, and a bit of grittiness—and peppers it with a whole lot of class. She wrote this song herself and that comes through. She believes every word she’s singing and it makes us want to climb into her constellation and listen to her riff all night. Musically this will go down a storm at Eurovision. It has the electro vibe of a Margaret Berger, the independent woman vibe of an Amandine Bourgeois and the financial backing of the BBC. Success, y’all!

Do you think that Molly can crack the Top 5 at ESC? Can she go all the way to the top? How does she compare to all the other acts on our contestants page? Let us know in the comments box below.

Children of the Universe lyrics — Molly Smitten-Downes

Power to the people
Power to the people

I’m been tired of this thinking
So I drowned it all by drinking
Feels like a bitter pill
But I’ll just wash it down
With the taste of something sweet
That some doctor gave me

And this is my message
I’m not given in

We shine like diamonds
With fire in our bones
Stand beside you
After feeling that I’ll never walk alone

We’re children of the universe
Don’t you know
Dancing on the edge of time

Children of the universe
Yes children of the universe

Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
You know what we want
And we got to get it now

Something’s stirring in the silence
and it wreaks of passive violence
Hold on tight cause opportunity will take
Couldn’t enter all the suffering before it gets too late

Hopes on the horizon
I’m not giving in

We’re the children of the universe
And don’t you know
It’s dancing on the edge of time

Eye to eye
Yes chidlren of the universe

We shine like diamonds
With love in our hearts
We say it’s the end
But I have a feeling it might just be the start

As I am
A fire in my bones
Standing beside you I have the feeling
That I’ll never walk alone

We’re children of the universe
Don’t you know
Yeah, dancing on the edge of time

We are the children of the unvierse

Power to the people
