She turned her fortunes around on the UK X Factor with a series of stellar performances, including a very memorable turn during Fright Night.

And with “Monsters” — her Eurovision 2018 entry — Saara Aalto is once again making those Halloween feels sooooo much better.

This uptempo dance number has a dark title yet it is full of light — its message of perseverance and pushing past haters and hangups comes with a delightful tropical feel. Best of all it still allows Saara’s voice to shine. Eurovision 2018 competitors beware…

The Monsters lyrics make it clear that Saara has had a self-reckoning. Any and all tricks once used to pull her down have lost their power. She’s found her self — and her supporters — and is feeling invincible tonight. As she sings, sometimes you have to hit the bottom to start moving toward the top.

“At my worst I found my army strong/ all the demons are gone/ You can try and scare me now, but I ain’t scared no more/ I ain’t scared no more.”

“Monsters” – Saara Aalto

“Monsters” lyrics – Saara Aalto

Closed my eyes, so I couldn’t see it
Felt so numb, but now I’m ready to feel it
So tonight I’m making friends with all the creatures that are hiding there under my bed

I ain’t gonna hold on to these monsters anymore
Now I’m gonna let in all the light, tear down the walls
At my worst, I found my army strong
All the demons are gone
You can try and scare me now, but I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t scared no more

No, I ain’t, I ain’t scared no  more

It’s my life, I’m ready to lead it
I’m gonna roll the dice, you better believe it
So tonight I’m making friends with all the creatures that are hiding there under my bed

I ain’t gonna hold on to these monsters anymore
Now I’m gonna let in all the light, tear down the walls
At my worst, I found my army strong
All the demons are gone
You can try and scare me now, but I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t, I ain’t, I ain’t scared no more

I ain’t scared no more

No, no
I ain’t scared, I ain’t scared

I ain’t gonna hold on to these monsters anymore
Now I’m gonna let in all the light, tear down the walls
At my worst, I found my army strong
All the demons are gone
You can try and scare me now, but I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t, I ain’t, I ain’t scared no more

I ain’t scared no more
I ain’t scared no more
