Australia seem to have got the hang of Eurovision very quickly. Dami Im had long been our favourite for Eurovision, and SBS promptly delivered her. Now, she’s dropped her Eurovision track “Sound of Silence” and it’s looking like Dami is going straight in as a top 5 contender. The song is a mid-tempo ballad that shows off Dami’s magnificent vocal. The lyrics see Dami pine for an absent lover, with the “sound of silence” showing the longing. It also drops a handy reference to “Facetime” — how very Valentina!

You can find the “Sound of Silence” lyrics below:

“Sound of Silence” lyrics — Dami Im

Growing tired and weary, brown eyes
Trying to feel your love through face time
Symphonies of dreams and highlights,
Caught up in this crazy fast life
But baby, you’re not here with me

And I keep calling, calling
Keep calling, call…

Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence,
And it beats to the sound of silence.
Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence,
And it beats to the sound of silence.

Getting hard to break through the madness,
You’re not here, it never makes sense
Tidal wave of tears are crashing,
No one hear to save me drowning,
’cause baby, you’re not here with me

And I keep calling, calling
Keep calling, call…

Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence,
And it beats to the sound of silence.
Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence,
And it beats to the sound of silence

I know I’m stronger and I’m capable,
I know it’s all in my head, but I keep calling, calling
Calling, calling…home

Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence, (silence)
And it beats to the sound of silence.
Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence,
And it beats to the sound of silence.

Teo’s lyrics to “Cheesecake” had to be modified because of the “Google Maps” reference. How come, she could sing about Face Time? O.o Isn’t that like against the rules?

I am going to agree with Fransen here…….love this Singer, has an amazing voice…..has so much talent…Justafiably best Australia could send, but song will not do her justice. Its really a letdown to see her wasted on a song that just keeps repeating itself. Its a song for eurofest…not a subliminal message in a commercial for cosmetics lol.

The lyrics are so repetitive… quite boring to me. I think it’s overrated.
