“Verona” lyrics — Koit Toome and Laura (Estonia, Eurovision 2017)

1

Koit Tomme and Laura have won Estonia’s national selection, Eesti Laul, with their song “Verona”. The Italian city is famous for being the setting of Romeo and Juliet and the song takes much inspiration from that source.

Much like Shakespeare’s tale, the lyrics are all about a doomed romance. There’s no happy ending as the pair told us in our interview — “the romance turned to drama”, after all.

Unlike in Estonia’s 2015 entry, “Goodbye to Yesterday”, it seems the blame is equally shared here though. Koit and Laura seem to equally pine and blame the other throughout the song. Laura sings “I was always high on loving you”, whilst Koit claims “I hpped the best in me was always you”.

“Verona” lyrics – Koit Toome and Laura (Estonia, Eurovision 2017)

Sleeping all alone
you wake up with a bottle in your hands
No sound of serenade
’cause we both know we lost our game

I was always high on loving you
Before the romance turned to drama
Like Romeo and Juliet once before
We are lost in Verona

Learning through the scars
Will make you stronger, time is the proof
I’m not a loner kind
I know I just can’t get over you

I was always trying to tell the truth
Before the romance turned to drama
I hoped the best in me was always you
Before we lost our Verona

We are lost
Lost in the crowd of the street
We are lost
Like two sailing boats in the sea
We are lost
’cause sometimes we’re building and burning down love
We have lost our Verona

Ahhhh
We lost and we found our Verona
Ahhhh
We are lost in Verona

Reckless type of love, reckless type of love
We never said I’m sorry, we never said enough
This western type of woman, western type of man
Disappeared in Verona

Ahhhh
We lost and we found our Verona
Ahhhh
We are lost in Verona

We are lost
Lost in the crowd of the street
We are lost
Like two sailing boats in the sea
We are lost
’cause sometimes we’re building and burning down love
We have lost our Verona

We lost and we found our Verona
We are lost in Verona

Ahhhh
We lost and we found our Verona
Ahhhh
We are lost in Verona
