Say Yay lyrics — Barei (Objetivo Eurovision)

In an interview with wiwibloggs shortly before Objetivo Eurovision, Barei said she has been “swimming up river” alone and without a record label. The Say Yay lyrics, she said, were all about her struggles trying to get by — and the courage to stare danger and fear in the face. “Go-getters don’t forsake! They never wallow in their fate.” Indeed, they pick themselves up and know “we only got today to learn from our yesterday.” Barei has done that, moving from obscurity to become one of Spain’s Eurovision favourites. She’s delivering a pop song about perseverance — and one that applies to aspiring singers and all the rest of us too.

You can read the lyrics below. Then let us know what you think of them in the comments section. Hopefully you’ll still be saying yay!

Say Yay lyrics — Barei

Hello hello Mr. fighter

Look! there we go again…

Go-getters don´t forsake!

They never wallow in their fate.

More than a thousand miles until the end

We’re never gonna know what lies ahead.

We only got today

to learn from our yesterday!

I feel alive bringing into play

my whole life going all the way.

I’m still alive and I turn away

from broken mirrors.

I feel alive when I dare to say

I wanna fight

Won’t fix by running,running… I won’t fix by running!

Come on and raise your battle cry

You are the one who never dies!

Hurray sing it lalalala! Go on singing lalalala!

You keep on climbing over hills…

Right now you’re following your dreams!

Hurray sing it lalalala! Hurray!

SAY YAY YAY YAY!

Hurray! Hurray!

SAY YAY YAY YAY!

Hurray! Hurray!

SAY YAY YAY YAY!

Hurray! Hurray!

SAY YAY YAY YAY!

Hello Hello Mr. Danger

No need to be afraid!

I know by heart my shades

I got the light between my breaks…

More than a thousand

wounds upon my hands

of every time I fought them face to face!

We go through our mistakes

to find the way to go back straight.

I feel alive… no voy a caer

my whole life una y otra vez

I´m still alive no voy a ceder

en el intento…

I feel alive no voy a correr!

I wanna fight

Won’t fix by running, running… I won’t fix by running!

Come on and raise your battle cry

You are the one who never dies!

Hurray sing it lalalala! Go on singing lalalala!

You keep on climbing over hills…

Right now you’re following your dreams!

Hurray sing it lalalala! Hurray!

SAY YAY YAY YAY!

Hurray! Hurray!

SAY YAY YAY YAY!

Hurray! Hurray!

SAY YAY YAY YAY!

Hurray! Hurray!

Come on and raise your battle cry…
