“Apollo” lyrics — Timebelle (Switzerland, Eurovision 2017)

4

Timebelle will represent Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with their song, “Apollo”. The group won the Swiss national final ESC 2017 – Die Entscheidungsshow.

Timebelle made their first appearance at the Swiss national final in 2015, where their entry “Singing About Love” placed second. Their song for this year, “Apollo”, has a similar theme, albeit with a much different sound.

Of course, “Apollo” may be a reference to the Greek god Apollo, said to be the god of music. Is the song a gift from the gods though? That’s for you to decide! Check out the video from their Live Check performance below. Then you can read the lyrics to the song as well.

“Apollo” lyrics – Timebelle

 

Like a bullet in my chest,
You’re written, bound and etched
Forever in my mind

We are fading in our hands
Lost somewhere in wasteland
Not knowing up from down

But when the walls are caving in
The world keeps turning
We got the love
We got the love

No, I will never let you go
All the words won’t make me fold
It is never easy
I follow you, Apollo

No, I will never let you go
Give it time and we will grow
Ain’t no fun in easy
I follow you, Apollo
I follow you, Apollo

I wear my heart on my sleeve
You do the same for me
When autumn comes around

So when the walls are caving in
The world keeps turning
We got the love
We got the love

No, I will never let you go
All the words won’t make me fold
It is never easy
I follow you, Apollo

No, I will never let you go
Give it time and we will grow
Ain’t no fun in easy
I follow you, Apollo
I follow you

So don’t pull the rug from underneath us
We’re in trouble, but we got the love
Don’t pull the rug from underneath us
Crashing down fast, as fragile as glass

But what are we now if we never tried?
What are we now?

I will never let you go
Give it time and we will grow
It is not supposed to be easy

No, I will never let you go
Give it time and we will grow
Ain’t no fun in easy
I follow you, Apollo
I follow you, Apollo

You, Apollo
It is never easy
I follow you, Apollo
I follow you, Apollo

You, Apollo
An’t no fun in easy
I follow you, Apollo
I follow you, Apollo
