michael schulte you let me walk alone lyrics

Following another disappointing result in Kiev, Germany rebooted their national selection format with an all-new process. Following his victory at “Unser Lied für Lissabon”, Michael Schulte will sing “You Let Me Walk Alone” in Lisbon.

Germany is sending their first male solo act since 2012, when Roman Lob reached 8th with “Standing Still” in Azerbaijan. Unlike the previous German entries, “You Let Me Walk Alone” tells a very personal story about the singer’s loss of his father.

The song is written by Thomas Stengaard, Nisse Ingwersen, Nina Müller as well as Michael himself.

Lyrically, the song deals with the death of his father by recalling similarities and does so in a slowed-down way. He’s singing that he misses his father the most in situtations that don’t work out as planned: “I thought you’d lead me, when life‘s misleading / That’s when I miss you most”

The song is tender and soft, allowing Michael’s voice and emotion to shine through.

You Let Me Walk Alone lyrics (Germany Eurovision 2018)

I’m a dreamer
A make-believer
I was told that you were, too

I love the silence
And a clear horizon
And I got it all from you

Every now and then I’m drawn to places
Where I hear your voice or see your face and
Every little thought will lead me right back to you

I was born, from one love
Of two hearts
We were three kids and a loving mum
You made this place a home
A shelter from the storm
You said I had one life
And a true heart
I tried my best and I came so far
But you will never know
Cause you let me walk this road alone

My childhood-hero
Will always be you
And no one else comes close

I thought you’d lead me
when life‘s misleading
That’s when I miss you most

Every now and then I’m drawn to places
Where I hear your voice or see your face and
Every little thought will lead me right back to you

I was born
From one love of two hearts
We were three kids and a loving mum
You made this place a home
A shelter from the storm
You said I had
One life and a true heart
I tried my best and I came so far
But you will never know
Cause you let me walk this road alone

Whoah, whoah, whoah

I was born
From one love of two hearts
We were three kids and a loving mum
You made this place a home
A shelter from the storm
You said I had
One life and a true heart
I tried my best and I came so far
But you will never know
Cause you let me walk this road alone
