Dutch diva Anouk is on the move again: last week we learned that she will replace this year’s Eurovision participant Trijntje as coach of The Voice Of Holland and last Friday she was a guest on the Dutch talkshow De Wereld Draait Door (DWDD) where she sang her duet with singer-songwriter Douwe Bob live for the first time and it was amazing.

Everything Anouk releases, from pop to ballads like this, are masterpieces. She knows what she likes in a song and she doesn’t release it before it is perfect. The many twists and turns she has endured in her life come through in her songs: They drip with emotion, struggle and authenticity.

Anouk and Douwe Bob: “Hold Me”

Anouk being too honest

As a singer Anouk knows how to cut and chop and edit. But when it comes to speaking in public, she literally says everything she thinks. So when Anouk and Douwe Bob did a photoshoot together recently, Anouk just had to tell fans that she secretly watched Bob’s male member when they shot a bathtub picture together. She didn’t have anything to complain about.

Hold me – Anouk ft. Douwe Bob (lyrics)

The things you say
In your innocent way
Remind me how it should be
Your love I can trace
In a wide open space
Oh your beautiful face I’ve seen

It’s the way you walk
And the way that you talk to me
You’re God’s gift to my world
The prettiest girl
And I feel like I live a dream
The silence I fear
Preach to the morning sun

So just hold me now
I’ll stay here all night ’cause
I don’t feel so alone when you are
Holding me tight, love

The things you do and say
Always go hand in hand
You’re all you seem to be
Not a shred of your pretends
I will run like a fool just to be by your side
Don’t hold back, my love
You’re my joy in this sad, sad world
You are safe with me
Dream, and you will be free

So just hold me now
I’ll stay here all night ’cause
I don’t feel so alone when you are
Holding me tight, love
So just hold me now
I’ll stay here all night ’cause
I don’t feel so alone when you are
Holding me tight, love

And if could have it my way
I’d tell you to stay here always
I will be waiting for you
I’ll be waiting, and there’s nothing else I can do
You’re taking me over

So just hold me now
I’ll stay here all night ’cause
I don’t feel so alone when you are
Holding me tight, love
So just hold me now
I’ll stay here all night ’cause
I don’t feel so alone when you are
Holding me tight, love
