Sergey Lazarev, Russia’s internally selected act for Stockholm, has released his entry, “You Are The Only One” and it’s confirmed Russia as a serious contender to win Eurovision 2016. As Sergey sings in the song lyrics, “Thunder and lightning, it’s getting exciting”.

“You Are The Only One” is an upbeat pop track with hints of schlager. Sergey sings of his lost love, a person he is determined to get back – “You will always be the only one”.

The pre-chorus has the killer line, “Thunder and lightning, it’s getting exciting”. He’s harnessing the power of nature to track down his loved one. When the chorus comes along, Sergey makes a declaration of love, “You’re my only one/You’re my life, every breath that I take”.

Will Sergey track down his lost love? Will Russia score its second Eurovision victory? We’ll soon find out!

“You Are The Only One” – Sergey Lazarev (Russia 2016)

“You Are The Only One” – Sergey Lazarev (Lyrics)

We can never let the word be unspoken
We will never let our loving go come undone
Everything we had is staying unbroken, oh
You will always be the only one

You’re the only one

Won’t ever give up ’cause you’re still somewhere out there
Nothing and no one’s gonna keep us apart
Breaking it down but I’m still getting nowhere
Won’t stop, hold on

Thunder and lightning, it’s getting exciting
Lights up the skyline to show where you are
My love is rising, the story’s unwinding
Together we’ll make it and reach for the stars

You’re the only one, you’re my only one
You’re my life, every breath that I take
Unforgettable, so unbelievable
You’re the only one, my only one

I could have told you to slow down and stay down
I could have told you a secret – won’t you keep it now?
Thinking of making a showdown when love is found
Thinking of waiting till you’re around

Won’t ever give up ’cause you’re still somewhere out there
Nothing or no one’s gonna keep us apart
Breaking it down but I’m still getting nowhere
Won’t stop, hold on

Thunder and lightning, it’s getting exciting
Lights up the skyline to show where you are
My love is rising, the story’s unwinding
Together we’ll make it and reach for the stars

You’re the only one, you’re my only one
You’re my life, every breath that I take
Unforgettable, so unbelievable
You’re the only one, my only one
You’re my only one

Thunder and lightning, it’s getting exciting
Lights up the skyline to show where you are

You’re the only one, you’re my only one
You’re my life, every breath that I take
Unforgettable, so unbelievable
You’re the only one, my only one

Total cliché, completely rubbish pimped with some video. Yes, that is probably typical eurovision songfestival. But I would be pleased to see a more innovative or sincere song win. Should there be any, as the level of entries is very mediocre.

Compared with other contestants this year, this song is highly competitive. Any the visual effect onstage are stunning. Go Russia!

Are these commenters serious? This song is the best in the competition, and to me it looks like it is going to be the clear winner this year.

Awful song but once the block Russian family vote for them it will be in top 3 again, that’s the trouble since the arrival of the eastern block it’s not a song contest anymore. Yes in the past there was neighbour voting but not like it is now . Malta should do better but they are a small island with no neighbours.

Formulaic! That’s the trouble with a prescriptive jury voting marking scheme – it promotes homogeneity and ultimately mediocrity
