Discuss: Can Axel Hirsoux pull a Top 10 with Mother?

Happy Mothers Day! On this day the team at wiwibloggs.com is pausing to listen to the lyrics of Axel Hirsoux’s Eurovision song “Mother”. A hand to hold, a heart to heal, a voice to help me through, through…Mother…

Axel sings this song beautifully, and boy can he tug on heartstrings. Those are just two of the reasons many ESC fans believe this is the best entry from Belgium in recent years. Given that, it’s no surprise that it has, at various points, been listed among the bookies’ Top 5 favourites to win Eurovision. Unfortunately it has slipped down a bit in recent weeks. But when it comes to Eurovision, the fall after the rise can always be followed by another rise.

What do you think of Belgium’s chances? Will Axel crack the Top 10, helping to avenge Roberto Bellarosa’s 12th place finish last year? Can this emotional song go all the way to the top? Sound off in the comments section below….

Mother Lyrics — Axel Hirsoux

I’m coming home,
I’m broken hearted and I need,
Time to shelter,
I need your love,
A hand to hold, a heart to heal, a voice to help me through, through…

And when hope is low,
You find the words to make me feel, so much better,
When I’ve had enough, oh I’ve had enough,
Of all the tears and all the hurt I can count on you, only you…

And once again mother,
You are right there mother,
You are my guiding light,
My shoulder, my shelter, my satellite,
I’m weak, you’re bright.

It’s not said enough,
But you mean the world to me you’re more, than a soulmate,
And you should know, oh you should know,
I’m so thankful and so hopeful that some day soon, i’ll shine like you…

And once again mother,
You are right there mother,
You are my guiding light,
My shoulder, my shelter, my satellite,
I’m weak, you’re bright,
Give me your strength, oh mother,
Give me your care mother,
You are my guiding light,
My shoulder, my shelter, my satellite,
I’m weak, you’re bright,
And once again mother, / You’re all I have mother,
And once again mother, / You’re all I have mother,
Oh mother…
