“Play” lyrics – Jüri Pootsmann (Estonia 2016)

Jüri Pootsmann won Estonia’s national final Eesti Laul with his song “Play”, co-written by Estonia’s 2015 representative Stig Rästa. With its 1960s soul style, the song is dripping with seductive attitude, with Jüri telling his love interest that it’s time to “just hit play”.

The song opens with “It’s getting late and be that as it may/I turn to you”, as Jüri draws us into his world.

The lyrics are a work of seduction – there’s chemistry there between Jüri and his love interest, but they need to take the next step. “Just hit play/’Cause that’s the only way/To find out if it’s love/That we’re fallin’, we’re fallin’ into”.

Estonia previously won Eurovision in 2001 and they have their sights set on another win. Can Jüri’s sedutive soul-pop styles win over Europe again? We will find out in May!

“Play” – Jüri Pootsman (lyrics)

It’s getting late and be that as it may
I turn to you, I turn to you
We might seem so obvious to me
But not to you, not to you

We ain’t got all night
To find out what is right
So let’s go undecided till we know
The only way to go
Is let your feelings show
See all your walls come down
And just hit play

‘Cause that’s the only way
To find out if it’s love
That we’re fallin’, we’re fallin’ into
I didn’t know what to do
But now I’m good as new
‘Cause I’m stronger, much stronger with you

Some might say it’s an ordinary day
But not for me, not for me
If you feel your senses disagree
Bear with me, bear with me

We ain’t got all night
To find out what is right
So let’s go undecided till we know
It’s the only way to see
If we were meant to be
Let all your walls come down
And just hit play

‘Cause that’s the only way
To find out if it’s love
That we’re fallin’, we’re fallin’ into
I didn’t know what to do
But now I’m good as new
‘Cause I’m stronger, much stronger with you

Some might say it’s an ordinary day
But not for me, but not for me
And I hit play

‘Cause that’s the only way
To find out if it’s love
That we’re fallin’, we’re fallin’ into
I didn’t know what to do
But now I’m good as new
‘Cause I’m stronger, much stronger with you
