“Skeletons” lyrics — Dihaj (Azerbaijan, Eurovision 2017)

2

Following an internal selection process, Azerbaijan is sending Dihaj — Diana Hajiyeva — to Eurovision 2017. Dihaj (Diana’s stage name) will be performing “Skeletons” in the first semi-final of the contest in Kyiv.

Diana is an artist with plenty of experience. She’s studied music both in Baku and London, performing as part of the band Looper & Mancus whilst in the UK. She returned to Azerbaijan and started the electronic music collective “Dihaj” in 2014. In addition, the song is a Azeri-Swedish joint effort, with Isa Melikov and Sandra Bjurman behind the song.

The song’s lyrics focus on Dihaj’s relationship and the troubles it creates. The two seem well matched for each other: “when I’m with him it’s fantasy, we’re just like alchemy” — yet it’s not all easy. Whilst Dihaj proclaims her lover can “have my skeletons”, the choir behind her sing “I can only trick you once, bad boy”. Nothing’s easy in love, y’all!

“Skeletons” lyrics

Standing in a mirror lane wondering what, to do
Another day and gravity’s got, got another hold of me
I never dreamed that this could be happening, not to me
But if he came falling down falling so hard, I started believing

Now I’m into daydreams, amazed by thorn jeans
Deep into high extremes
When I’m with him it’s fantasy, we’re just like alchemy
Oh I feel ready

Have my skeletons
[I can only trick you once, bad boy]
Have my lungs, my millions
[Talk is cheap don’t speak in tongues, bad boy]
Drum drum drum, bring out the guns
[Drum drum drum, bring out the guns, bad boy]
I’m so so cursed
[Fuss and fight won’t get you tons]
Bad boy

The world is spinning faster by the minute and I’m longing to be saved
This bitter sweet sensation got a, got another hold of me

Now I’m stuck in daydreams, surrounded by thorn jeans
Deep into high extremes
When we hook up it’s fantasy, we’re just like alchemy
I’ve never been so ready

Have my skeletons
[I can only trick you once, bad boy]
Have my lungs, my millions
[Talk is cheap don’t speak in tongues, bad boy]
Drum drum drum, bring out the guns
[Drum drum drum, bring out the guns, bad boy]
I’m so so cursed
[Fuss and fight won’t get you tons]
Bad boy

[I can only trick you once, bad boy]
I can only trick you once
[Talk is cheap don’t speak in tongues, bad boy]
[Talk is cheap don’t speak in tongues, bad boy]
Talk is cheap don’t speak in tongues
Drum drum drum, bring out the guns
[Drum drum drum, bring out the guns, bad boy]
Bad boy
Fuss and fight won’t get you tons, bad boy
[Fuss and fight won’t get you tons]

Have my skeletons
[I can only trick you once, bad boy]
Have my lungs, my millions
[Talk is cheap don’t speak in tongues, bad boy]
Have my skeletons
[Drum drum drum, bring out the guns, bad boy]
I’m so so cursed
[Fuss and fight won’t get you tons]
Have my skeletons
