MY FRIEND lyrics — Jacques Houdek (Croatia Eurovision 2017)

7

Jacques Houdek is one of the most recognised faces — and voices — on Croatia’s Eurovision scene. Having attempted to sing for the country six times before, he’s finally getting his shot at Eurovision glory at Eurovision 2017.

As you can see in the “My friend” lyrics, Jacques is all about seizing the day. He encourages listeners to know “there are only two ways to live your life — one as though nothing is a miracle, the other as though everything’s a miracle.”

Mixing Italian lyrics with English ones, he dares listeners to “do your best, take a chance, dare to dream and make it real.”

Words to live by.

My Friend lyrics — Jacques Houdek

(Italian lyrics translated below)

There are only two ways to live your life
One is as though nothing is a miracle
The other is as though everything’s a miracle

There’s a miracle my friend
And it happens every day
Hold out your hand
Don’t let it slip away

Io so che esiste (I know it exists)
guarda meglio su (look up closer)
ritorna ogni giorno (upward it comes back every day)
promettendo sempre più (promising more and more)

After the rain

Nasce il sole (The sun rises)

I pray you see the light and find your way

La forza del destino che è in te (The strength of fate that is in you)

Do your best
Take a chance
Dare to dream and
Make it real
Segui la verità, via della libertà (Follow the truth, the road of freedom)
My friend
My friend

Don’t let go
Let it flow

Credi nel miracolo (Do you believe in miracles?)

For the miracle
That I’m talking of
Is the life that we’re given

La vita vincera (The winning life)

I pray you see the light and find your way
I pray, I pray

La forza del destino che è in te (The strength of fate that is in you)

Do your best
Take a chance
Dare to dream and make it real

Segui la verità, via della libertà (Follow the truth, the road of freedom)

My friend
My friend
My friend
