The Last of our Kind lyrics – Rykka (Switzerland Eurovision 2016)

Every year, SRF’s online search for a Eurovision song often leads us to some hilariously bad attempts. But there’s always a gem and this year, it came in the form of Swiss-Canadian singer, Rykka. Her song “The Last of our Kind” quickly became a fan favourite and that translated through to the national final, where Rykka triumphed over five other acts to win Die Entscheidungsshow and represent Switzerland in Stockholm.

The Last of our Kind lyrics – Rykka

Soldier, take off your armour
Show me your heart, this is home

And it’s stronger, stronger than water
Deeper than reason, longer than time

Here we are at the end of the movie
I’ve never felt more alive
It’s time to rise

We’re the last of our kind,
It’s a whole new world
And we’re facing the fire
Not afraid of our own ghosts,
We’re the last of our kind,
And we’re all that we know
And we’re out of our minds,
Not afraid to be brave though

We’re the last of our kind,
The last of our kind,
The last of our kind,
Not afraid to be brave,
We’re the last of our kind

This is paradise
Turn off the search light
Where we belong

Standing tall at the end of the story
Watching worlds collide
It’s time to rise

We’re the last of our kind,
It’s a whole new world
And we’re facing the fire
Not afraid of our own ghosts,
We’re the last of our kind,
And we’re all that we know
And we’re out of our minds,
Not afraid to be brave though

We’re the last of our kind,
Here we are now, with nothing to lose
I know without love, we won’t pull through
Cause deep in the night, there is a light and it guides us to truth

It’s a whole new world
And we’re facing the fire
Not afraid of our own ghosts,

We’re the last of our kind,
And we’re all that we know
And we’re out of our minds,
Not afraid to be brave though

We’re the last of our kind,
the last of our kind,
the last of our kind,
not afraid to be brave,
we’re the last of our kind
