Latvia, Laura Rizzotto, 2

She’s the Brazilian born Latvian with a career spanning three continents already. Laura Rizzotto will sing “Funny Girl” for Latvia at Eurovision 2018, after triumphing across the semi-final and final of Supernova 2018.

The song’s lyrics – penned by Laura herself – reveal a bittersweet love story. Despite her initial worries, she falls for her love interest: “I locked my heart in hesitation / But somehow, you cracked the code”.

Unfortunately for Laura, it doesn’t take an enigma machine to work out what’s happening next. “You’re looking at her / she’s looking at you” and “you walk in, smelling like her perfume”. It comes to the realisation that she’ll always just be the “funny girl” in her lover’s life, and never the true love that she desires.

Funny Girl Lyrics — Laura Rizzotto

Ain’t it funny, ain’t it funny
Oh, it all started as a joke
But now I’m falling, now I’m falling
The punch line is getting old

Cause I’ve been keeping to myself
For way too long, yeah

Ain’t it funny, ain’t it funny
I made you laugh every time we spoke
I locked my heart in hesitation
But somehow, you cracked the code

I tore down my walls and wrecked the ceiling
Ready to bare it all, but

You’re looking at her, she’s looking at you
I’m falling apart, what can I do
To make you feel that way about me too?
And it’s getting hard, I’m not gonna lie
To keep in the dark, all I’m feeling inside
When you walk in, smelling like her perfume

What was I thinking, I’m just the funny girl to you

Can you feel me, can you feel me?
Like a fire rising in the smoke
Can you hear me, can you hear me?
Open up with every note

Cause I’ve been playing to myself
For way too long
Oh, I tore down my walls and I wrecked the ceiling
Ready to bare it all,
What was I thinking?

You’re looking at her, she’s looking at you
I’m falling apart, what can I do
To make you feel that way about me too?
And it’s getting hard, I’m not gonna lie
To keep in the dark, all I’m feeling inside
When you walk in, smelling like her perfume

What was I thinking, I’m just the funny girl…

So tell me what, you’re looking for
I promise you, I got it all
What does it take, to make you see
I am right here?
And if you ever, need to cry
I’ll be the one to make you laugh, yeah
I’ll be your funny girl, funny girl

You’re looking at her, she’s looking at you
I’m falling apart, now what can I do
To make you feel that way about me too?

And it’s getting hard, I’m not gonna lie
To keep in the dark, all I’m feeling inside
When you walk in, smelling like her perfume

What was I thinking, I’m just the funny girl
To you

Reading between the lines:

Ain’t it funny, ain’t it funny
That I’m going to Eurovision instead of Madara
Oh, it all started as a joke
And the song is still a joke now
But now I’m falling, now I’m falling
To get to the final of Eurovision
The punch line is getting old

or…. Ain’t it funny, ain’t it funny
That I ‘m going to Eurovision instead of Sudden Lights
Oh, It all started as a joke
And the song is still a joke now
But now I’m falling, now I’m falling
To get the final of Eurovision
The punch line is getting old

Definitely one of the best written songs this year.
