“Spirit of the Night” lyrics — Valentina Monetta and Jimmie Wilson (San Marino, Eurovision 2017)

0

For the fourth time in six years San Marino has chosen Valentina Monetta to sing at Eurovision. The 42-year-old jazz star will join forces with Jimmie Wilson, a musical performer born in the United States, now established in Germany.

The couple is going to sing “Spirit of the Night”, an addictive eurodance number with two powerful key changes.

A chance encounter in the middle of a nightclub sends sparks flying between our two protagonists. “Hey, are you the one I dream about?” asks Jimmie. Valentina, ready to jump into a new adventure, answers: “Baby, I am”.

As the music flows feelings grow and the pair share intense chemistry. Now they’re ready to find the light after the darkness: “Together we can make it through the night”.

Positivity explodes in the bridge, while they sing to each other: “Time to celebrate our love, we’re caught in it’s ray of light (…) We can write another page, a golden age within our lifetime”.

San Marino has qualified for the Eurovision final only once. Can Valentina and Jimmie take the microstate there again?

VALENTINA MONETTA AND JIMMIE WILSON – “SPIRIT OF THE NIGHT”

“SPIRIT OF THE NIGHT” LYRICS — Valentina Monetta

Hey, are you the one I dream about?
Baby I am
I really feel the night can take away my doubt
I’ll try and do what I can

Every time I see you smile
There is sadness in your eyes
Well, I’ve been hurt before

I know it’s nothing new
And time will make you realize
We always wish for more

We find we’re searching high and low
And always looking for the right time
Together we can make it through the night

It’s the spirit of the night
Spirit of the night
Burning like St. Elmo’s fire
Spirit of the night
Takes our feelings so much higher

It’s the spirit of the night
We can live our fantasy
Spirit of the night
Burning in our ecstasy

Hey, are you the one to take my pain?
Just take my hand
I’ve been so hurt before, it’s hard to trust again
You know I understand

You’ve got me feeling right
And I can see the future is bright
I’ll take your blues away
So no more searching high and low
And always looking for the right time
Together we can make it trough the night

It’s the spirit of the night
Spirit of the night
Burning like St. Elmo’s fire
Spirit of the night
Takes our feelings so much higher
Feed our deep desire

It’s the spirit of the night
It’s a feeling, got me reeling
We can live our fantasy
It’s the spirit of the night
It’s a feeling, just a feeling
Burning in our ecstasy

Time to celebrate our love
We’re caught in it’s ray of light
Calling to the world out loud
Just let our spirits fly
We can write another page
a golden age within our lifetime

It’s the spirit of the night
It’s the spirit of the night
The spirit of the night
Takes our feelings so much higher
And higher

It’s the spirit of the night
Spirit of the night
Burning in our ecstasy
Spirit of the night
We can live our fantasy
