Latvia: Justs releases “Message to You” — an ode to meeting over Instagram

11

Two weeks ago, he received Latvia’s Zelta Mikrofons (Golden Microphone) Best Debut Award for his Eurovision 2016 entry “Heartbeat”. Fittingly, it was Aminata — the song’s writer — who presented him with the gong.

Now, Justs Sirmais is treating his fans to fresh delights as he releases “Message To You” — the track he premiered during the Supernova 2017 final.

“Message to You” mixes mid-tempo EDM with old school elements, further cementing the 22-year-old’s reputation for experimentation.

The lyrics basically tell the story of a guy who is unsure how to approach a girl he likes. It’s a tale as old as time, but firmly based in the modern era. There are references to Instagram, posting and messaging, while Justs contemplates the best way to slide into her DMs — millennial problems!

With constant mentions of danger, one can’t help but wonder whether this was written before or after those pictures did the rounds online.

We don’t have a music video yet, but in the meantime you can listen to the studio version or check out his Supernova performance.

What do you think? Is Justs sending the right message to you? Or is there a communication breakdown? Let us know in the comments below or react using the wiwibloggs app.

Justs Message to You Lyrics

You followed me on the Instagram
I didn’t follow you back but I was checking you out
You got me trapped in your eyes
I can’t decide
Should I send a message too

Should I send a message too
Should I send a message too
Should I send a message too

I can’t leave without danger
I know it’s in my nature
I can’t leave without danger
I know I’m just a stranger

I can’t leave without danger
I know it’s in my nature
I can’t leave without danger
you know I’m just a stranger

Maybe we just have to leave it behind
But I can’t even write the words
I have to meet you first
How can I make you know what I’ve been hold in
how can I say that all I ever want is you

All I ever want is you
All I ever want is you
All I ever want is you

I can’t leave without danger
I know it’s in my nature
I can’t leave without danger
I know I’m just a stranger

I can’t leave without danger
I know it’s in my nature
I can’t leave without danger
you know I’m just a stranger

I’ve been trying hard to slow it down
But I can’t hold the fire when you make it grow
I have to leave it, I need to take control
I can’t stop when you are coming over me

I can’t leave without danger
I know it’s in my nature
I can’t leave without danger
I know I’m just a stranger
