This year, the songstress behind the Danish selection for Eurovision hails from Down Under.  The Voice of Australia winner Anja Nissen will be performing “Where I Am” at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, Ukraine.

The song is an epic pop power ballad perfectly suited to showing off Anja’s gymnastic vocal prowess. It allows her clear voice to ring through in the verses and blast through the soaring high notes throughout the bridge and final choruses.

“Where I Am” is a love song through and through. Anja is letting her lover know exactly where she stands and with whom her heart lies, even after what seems to be a very painful parting of ways. Anja isn’t afraid to letting out her emotions, as she sings “Tonight I’m gonna hold you closer than before/So you know where I am, so you know where I am”.

It’s heart-rending and desperate in its delivery – her last chance to proclaim how she feels. She’s held back before keeping her feelings hidden, but no more. She’s letting the world know now – and with a stunningly executed high note near the end of the song nonetheless.

“Where I Am” Lyrics – Anja Nissen

Laying down my armour, laying down my guard

You’re lost in my game, your love is repeating
Always around, you’re never holding me down
I know who you are, true colours are showing
Though my heart’s bare, always show you care

Putting up my walls so that I last better
Dunno why I do it because we’re together
Always holding back from you
It’s on my mind

Tonight I’m gonna try for you real hard
To show you all the love I’ve held inside
Show you all the love I’ve held inside
Let’s do it right

Tonight I’m gonna show you, show you what you’ve done
I’m laying down my armour, laying down my guard
Tonight I’m gonna hold you closer than before
So you know where I am, so you know where I am

I’ve known it’s not right, just couldn’t reveal it
Always closing up tight and never releasing
I’ve prayed and I’ve feared to love, but you never let me go
I’ve held it in my heart and now I’m letting you know

Tonight I’m gonna show you, show you what you’ve done
I’m laying down my armour, laying down my guard
Tonight I’m gonna hold you closer than before
So you know where I am, so you know where I am

Putting up my walls so that I’ll last better
Dunno why I do it because we’re together

Tonight I’m gonna try for you real hard
To show you all the love I’ve held inside
Show you all the love I’ve held inside
Let’s do it right

Tonight I’m gonna show you, show you what you’ve done
I’m laying down my armour, laying down my guard
Tonight I’m gonna hold you closer than before
So you know where I am, so you know where I am

So you know where I am
(So you know where I am, so you know where I am)
So you know where I am (So you know where I am)
Oh, so you know where I am

After I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any means you’ll be able to take away me from that service? Thanks!
