The super talented singer Mélovin is getting ready for Lisbon, after running away with the victory in VidBir 2018, Ukraine´s national finals. He’ll sing “Under the Ladder” for Ukraine at Eurovision 2018.

We might not have seen much of Mélovin on the promo tour, but we certainly have an idea of what to expect in Lisbon. We’ll get a dynamic show, surrounding his cool and effortless performance of “Under the Ladder”.

The song is about failure that ultimately leads to success. It doesn´t matter how the world turns around you, it’s only you who can make a difference in your life. But it’s only if you’re brave enough to take the chance and not listen to those negative voices in your mind.

The lyrics reflect this: “Desperate thought, your hope calls you a liar, fear begins to revel, nothing but your will sets you on fire, fire lasts forever”. True words, certainly!

You can find the full Under the Ladder lyrics below, as well as his national final performance:

Under the Ladder lyrics — Mélovin

Curtains down, I’m laughing at the trial
Help me to unravel
Tangle of my innocence inside
Faith’s bout to be severed

Oh oh oh oh, won’t get any better
Oh oh oh oh, walk under the ladder
Shout out just one reason what’s this for

You can see that whatever the weather
That the wind’s always there, always fair, oh oh oh
And it has always been now or never
The decision has got to be made, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh, yeah
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh, yeah

Desperate thoughts, your hope calls you a liar
Fear begins to revel
Nothing but your will sets you on fire
Fire lasts forever

Oh oh oh oh, can’t get any better
Oh oh oh oh, dance under the ladder
If you dare, so what you’re waiting for

You can see that whatever the weather
That the wind’s always there, always fair, oh oh oh
And it has always been now or never
The decision has got to be made, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh, yeah
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh, yeah

Yeah, yeah

You can see that whatever the weather
That the wind’s always there, always fair, oh oh oh
And it has always been now or never
The decision has got to be made

You can see that whatever the weather
That the wind’s always there, always fair, oh oh oh
And it has always been now or never
The decision has got to be made, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh, yeah
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh, yeah
