Jessica Mauboy interview
Australia, Jessica Mauboy, 2

She’s the Aboriginal Australian singer who will become the first Australian to appear on two different Eurovision stages. Jessica Mauboy is the fourth person set to compete for Australia at Eurovision, singing We Got Love in Lisbon. It’s an upbeat pop song typical to Jessica Mauboy’s catalogue, and currently riding high in the odds.

The lyrics are about fighting against self-hatred and materialism. Jess sings that they are a cycle that needs to be broken using the power of love “I know what you must be thinking / That we are powerless to change things / But don’t, don’t give up / Cause we got love”.

The song is written by Jessica herself with Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci – the same duo who wrote “Sound of Silence” and “Don’t Come Easy” for Australia. They describe the song as “a reminder that love, acceptance and the power of inclusivity can overcome all obstacles or hardships that arise”.

“We Got Love” – Jessica Mauboy

“We Got Love” Lyrics – Jessica Mauboy

Why do we always feel like we need to try
Why do we believe that we need to be somebody else
To feel alive?

Why do we make
Why do we keep making the same mistakes
And believing that it won’t make a difference if we try
To break away?

I know, I know what you must be thinking
That we are powerless to change things
But don’t, don’t give up
Cause we got love
Cause we got love

I won’t throw my hands up to surrender
Cause love is stronger than fire
So don’t, don’t give up
Cause we got love
Cause we got love

Time
Don’t you think it’s just a waste of time
When we’re always fighting over material and trivial things
In this life

Yeah
I don’t understand why we don’t get it right
Why do we keep going round and round at the end of the day
We’ve only got ourselves to blame
No

I know, I know what you must be thinking
That we are powerless to change things
But don’t, don’t give up
Cause we got love
Cause we got love

Yeah
I won’t throw my hands up to surrender
Cause love is stronger than fire
So don’t, don’t give up
Cause we got love
Cause we got love

(We Got Love)
(We Got Love)
We Got Love, We Got Love
(We Got Love)
We Got Love

I know, I know what you must be thinking
That we are powerless to change things
But don’t, don’t give up
Cause we got love
Cause we got love

I won’t throw my hands up to surrender
Cause love is stronger than fire
So don’t, don’t give up
Cause we got love
Cause we got love
Cause we got love
