Conchita Wurst – winner of the Eurovision Song Contest – has unveiled her new single ‘My Lights’.

Though the song might be familiar to Austrian fans as a cover of a 2013 charity single for “Licht ins Dunkel” Conchita has more than made the song her own.

A theatrical ballad similar style and scale to ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’ the triumphant chorus seems almost too perfectly suited to Conchita.

She croons, “My lights are on, the doubts are gone and I have won.” The almost magical instrumentation through the middle 8 lends the song a Disney-like flavour and Conchita’s vocal is effortless.

It might be a cover but from how well she owns it you’d never know. Clips from the night of her victory and her victorious welcome on return to Vienna are interspersed through a music video created with Director Curtis Ryan Woodside.

Conchita Wurst “My Lights” Lyrics

My lights are brighter when I feel right,
It’s my right to stand here in the spotlight,
Long nights of longing for salvation,
They’re all gone cause I found my own solution,
I was trapped in a spiral moving downwards,
Lost track but today I’m going homewards,
I stand here with a fistful of new wishes,
Upright in the sunlight.

CHORUS:

My lights are on,
My lights are on,
The past is gone,
The past is gone,
My lights are on,
My lights are on,
The doubts are gone,
And I have won.

I stand here just to tell you what it’s all about,
A presentation of the details that I found out,
A brief summary of all the pain I’ve gone through,
I’ve found a remedy and now I’d like to tell you
It’s one life and I am grateful
It’s one life and we are here to,
Make a difference to the world of the cold hearted
It’s time to get started

My lights are on,
My lights are on,
The past is gone,
The past is gone,
My lights are on,
My lights are on,
The doubts are gone,
And I have won.

My lights are on,
My lights are on,
My lights are on,
My lights are on,
My lights are on.

My lights are brighter cause it feels right
All of us here standing in the spotlight
Long nights of love and celebration
Upright in the sunlight.

My lights are on,
My lights are on,
The past is gone,
The past is gone,
My lights are on,
My lights are on,
The doubts are gone,
And I have won.

My lights are on,
My lights are on,
The past is gone.

It wa ok till I saw the cyclists and the lyrics “my lights are on” and it’s like a road safety advert.

Her video for Rise like a Pheonix was amazing. This is fairly dull in comparison. I’m sure it would be an amazing live performance but it’s ultimate cheese on toast in a really tacky way. I’m kind of disappointed.

I’m a bit unclear how Conchita could develop musically. Their seems to be only one image / sound. I’d be really curious to see Tom and what he could do as opposed to singing through a persona.
