“My Turn” lyrics – Martina Bárta (Czech Republic, Eurovision 2017)

0

Ceska Televize internally selected jazz singer Martina Bárta to represent the Czech Republic at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with the song “My Turn”. It’s a gentle love song where she reminds a lover that she will always be there to offer emotional support.

This easy-listening ballad flows smoothly and tenderly and draws strength from Martina’s soulful delivery. She sings a reminder of the support she had previously received from her lover, and asserts that she will also be there when her bae falls on troubled times.

Martina is in protective mode. She sings, “Now that you are falling, let me be your calling/Be your one prayer, keep away the bad things” And when the chorus comes around, there’s no mistaking her intent. She sings, “Baby, it’s you/Every time I close my eyes/It’s always been you/And heaven knows that I’ll be waiting always by your side”.

It’s a tender declaration of love and support, a reminder that whatever tough times might come our, it’s always a little easier with the help of a supportive friend or lover. Awww…

“My Turn” – Martina Bárta

“My Turn” lyrics – Martina Bárta (Czech Republic, Eurovision 2017)

From the very very first time I saw you
You were my home, you were home, you were my home

Now that you are falling, let me be your calling
Be your one prayer, keep away the bad things
In this moment let me give to you what you’ve given to me
And that’s the least I can do

Baby, it’s you
Every time I close my eyes
It’s always been you
And heaven knows that I’ll be waiting always by your side
Baby, it’s you
Every time that I was down
You were there to fix me up
You were there to pick me up
Now it’s my turn

From the billion hearts to choose between
Oh, I was your choice, I was your choice
So let me be your salvation and joy

Now that you are falling, let me be your calling
Be your one prayer, keep away the bad things
In this moment let me give to you what you’ve given to me
And that’s the least I can do

Baby, it’s you
Every time I close my eyes
It’s always been you
And heaven knows that I’ll be waiting always by your side
Baby, it’s you
Every time that I was down
You were there to fix me up
You were there to pick me up
Now it’s my turn

You know that I love it when you call
Just to say hello, oh oh
Will you let me hear it once more?

Baby, it’s you
Every time I close my eyes
It’s always been you
And heaven knows that I’ll be waiting always by your side
Oh yeah
Baby, it’s you
Every time that I was down
You were there to fix me up
You were there to pick me up
Now it’s my turn
