“Breathlessly” lyrics – Claudia Faniello (Malta, Eurovision 2017)

0

After nine previous attempts to represent Malta at Eurovision, Claudia Faniello finally won the ticket to Kyiv with her emotional country-tinged ballad “Breathlessly”.

“Breathlessly” is about sticking with a troubled relationship. She sings of knowing when to “take the blame”, singing, “I wave my white flag unashamed”.

The emotional chorus has Claudia sing “I’ll be watching you breathlessly/Knowing there’s a vacancy within your heart”. Her lover might have gone cold on her, but she’s still there wanting to be taken back.

The song might be a serious and dramatic ballad, but it isn’t afraid to have a little fun with the lyrics. At one point Claudia proclaims, “I’ve got the will, I learned the skill/Of a true acrobat for love”. So the question remains, will Claudia end up somersaulting into the grand final in Kyiv?

“Breathlessly” lyrics – Claudia Faniello (Malta, Eurovision 2017)

I walk the street
Leaving footprints in your heart
My feet are worn
But they can handle the cold

I know the game, I take the blame
I wave my white flag unashamed
So here I am, right at your door
Catching my breath before the storm

Breathlessly
I’ll be watching you breathlessly
Knowing there’s a vacancy within your heart

Breathlessly
I’ll be holding you endlessly
Knowing that the storm is just about to die
Climbing over walls that always felt too high
Breathlessly

I’m stepping out
Yet I feel I’m locked inside
I’ve got the will, I learned the skill
Of a true acrobat for love

Breathlessly
I’ll be watching you breathlessly
Knowing there’s a vacancy within your heart

Breathlessly
I’ll be holding you endlessly
Knowing that the storm is just about to die
Climbing over walls that always felt too high
Breathlessly
