“Made of Stars” lyrics – Hovi Star (Israel 2016)

Hovi Star won Israel’s national selection HaKokhav HaBa L’Eirovizion (“The Next Star for Eurovision”) with his entry “Made of Stars”. The song is written by Israeli songwriter Doron Medalie who was also behind Nadav Guedj’s 2015 entry “Golden Boy”.

The song creates a sensuous world of mystery, with Hovi singing, “You hypnotise me, hypnotise me”.

When the big chorus comes in, it has the positive message that “We are made of stars”. The song reaches a dramatic peak when Hovi goes for the big line, “Dance with me like we are made of stars”.

In 2015 Israel broke their long period of non-qualification with an English-language song written by Doron Medalie. Can they do the same again in 2016 and have another “Golden Boy” moment?

“Made of Stars” – Hovi Star (lyrics)

A language I don’t understand.
You speak, I listen, I’m your friend,
You hypnotize me…

Take my hand,
A million faces tied in chains,
You ride a black horse in the rain,
You hypnotize me…

Don’t escape no more, no more,
no more, no more,
‘cause we are all…

Made of stars
Silver fragments fallin’
We are… made of stars.
We are made of stars,
Searching for that secret promise,
Made of stars.

You heal me, you fill me
Ignite a flame within me
Hypnotize me

mmmm… I’m begging you
Don’t escape no more, no more,
no more, no more,
‘cause we are all…

Made of stars
Silver fragments fallin’.
We are… made of stars.
We are made of stars,
Searching for that secret promise,
Made of stars.

Tell me that you understand,
Come in close and take my hand,
Let’s float across the sky line,
There’s no floor and there’s no ceiling –
Dance with me like we are made of stars.

‘Cause we are, ’cause we are,
‘Cause we are, ’cause we are,
We are, we are, we are…

We are made of stars,
Silver fragments fallin’.
We are… made of stars.
We are made of stars,
Searching for that secret promise,
Made of stars.

Dance with me like we are made of stars…
Dance with me like we are made of stars…
