“Alter Ego” lyrics – Minus One (Cyprus 2016)

Minus One were internally selected to represent Cyprus at Eurovision 2016. They teamed up with Swedish maestro Thomas G:son and co-wrote the pop-rock track “Alter Ego”. It’s a tail of wild love, with lead singer Francois channelling his inner werewolf and singing that “I howl in the moonlight/Howling for you”.

The song is full of rock drama, including the epic chorus “I’m caught in the middle of the dawn and the sunrise/Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes”.

The song is full of romantic urgency, as the lyrics urge the listener to “Take it on, take it on and get me through the night/Take it on, take it on until the morning light”

And with the Globe Arena resembling a full moon, perhaps Minus One will bring our their werewolf style in May.

“Alter Ego” – Minus One

“Alter Ego” – Minus One (lyrics)

Waking up alone like a man that failed
Trapped into the mist of a fairytale
And you know, you know, you know
I’m still inside

I knew it all along but I couldn’t tell
This kind of love would lock my heart in jail
And you know, you know, you know
It’s doing time

I’m caught in the middle of the dawn and the sunrise
Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes
Under a spotlight, I howl in the moonlight
Howling for you

Take it on, take it on and get me through the night
Take it on, take it on until the morning light
Take it on, take it on and get me through the night
Take it on, take it on, take it on

I heard it all before, people always say
Time can take the sorrow and the pain away
And you know, you know
This love will never die

I’m caught in the middle of the dawn and the sunrise
Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes
Under a spotlight, I howl in the moonlight
Howling for you

I’m caught in the middle of the dawn and the sunrise
Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes
Under a spotlight, I howl in the moonlight
Howling for you

Take it on, take it on and get me through the night
Take it on, take it on until the morning light
Take it on, take it on and get me through the night
Take it on, take it on, take it on

I cross the oceans, fly on the skyline
Drive any road that will bring me by your side

Take it on, take it on and get me through the night
Take it on, take it on until the morning light
Take it on, take it on and get me through the night
Take it on, take it on, take it on

Caught in the middle of the dawn and the sunrise
Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes
