“Lights and Shadows” lyrics – O’G3NE (The Netherlands, Eurovision 2017)

4

The Netherlands have selected singing sister trio O’G3NE as their act for Eurovision 2017. The girls, separately known as Lisa, Amy and Shelley, first introduced themselves at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 and catapulted to fame on The Voice of Holland in 2014. They are known for their perfect harmonies and they are bringing that to the table in Kyiv with their song “Lights and Shadows”.

The song was co-written by the girls’ father, and pays homage to their mother who has been sick for the past couple of years. The lyrics tell a tale of fighting the inner demons, and coming out on the other side happier and stronger than ever before.

The sisters offer support, singing “Cry no more, feeling all alone and insecure/You have been going through these stages/Now it’s time to turn the pages”.

They recognise that everyone experiences hard times in life, that we all must “Walk that road that everybody goes, through lights and shadows”. Their song offers a message of hope for those going through tough times.

O’G3NE – “Lights and Shadows”

“Lights and Shadows” lyrics – O’G3NE (The Netherlands, Eurovision 2017)

Cry no more, cry no more

Though the hallway catches light
It won’t reach the corner where you strongly fight
Here in the shadow
At this place they know the game
Outside the world will turn and feel the same
There in the sunlight

But you are so much more to me
Than the one who carries all the burden
I can only hope once you fly you’ll be free
You should never

Cry no more, feeling all alone and insecure
You have been going through these stages
Now it’s time to turn the pages
We’re gonna stand in line
And not give up, but walk that road
That everybody goes
Through lights and shadows

Every time the candle glows
It lightens up the space but no one knows
Will there be a dark side?
Every battle’s victory
Is a double feeling when you cannot be
Here in the spotlight

‘Cause you are so much more to me
Than the one who lifts us on your shoulders
I can only hope once you fly you’ll be free
You should never

Cry no more, feeling all alone and insecure
You have been going through these stages
Now it’s time to turn the pages
We’re gonna stand in line
And not give up, but walk that road
That everybody goes
Through lights and shadows

On a scale of one to ten
You got the biggest score, you’re heaven sent
No one will doubt that you’re an angel
So what went wrong this time?
Hurt nobody, did no crime
What’s with the universe?
Why you?

Cry no more, feeling all alone and insecure
You have been going through these stages
Now it’s time to turn the pages
We’re gonna stand in line
And not give up, but walk that road
That everybody goes
Through lights and shadows
