Amir has been a busy man since placing sixth at Eurovision 2016. As well at performing at the EURO 2016 opening concert, he’s also been touring around France and has now released the lyric video for his new single “On dirait” (“It looks like”).

Like his Eurovision song “J’ai cherché”, “On dirait” is also a song in praise of someone who has brought positivity and support to Amir’s life.

The chorus is full of optimism, with Amir singing “It looks like we all have an angel/It looks like, it really looks like it’s you/It looks like in this strange world/It looks like you have always been here”.

He compares this person to an angel, which is also reflected in the visuals for the lyric video and the artwork for the single. It involves an artist drawing angel wings on an urban wall, with a paint-splattered Amir eventually appearing in front of it.

Amir – “On dirait” (Lyric video)

“On dirait” – lyrics

Tu me dis de regarder la vie en couleur
Quand il fait noir tout autour de moi
Sur le dos j’ai trainé pas mal de douleur
Toi, tu me portais à bout de bras

Nan, nan, nan, je n’ai pas toujours été sûr de moi
J’ai douté tellement de fois
Nan, nan, nan, je ne sais pas ce que je ferai sans toi
Oh yeah

On dirait qu’on à tous un ange
On dirait, on dirait bien que c’est toi
On dirait que dans ce monde étrange
On dirait que t’as toujours été là

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

Tu me dis que mon rêve est juste à coté
Que j’ai juste à tendre la main
Toute ma vie, je peux la passer à t’écouter
La douceur est ton seul refrain

Nan, nan, nan, ce n’est pas toujours facile pour moi
J’ai prié tellement de fois
Nan, nan, nan, je ne sais pas ce que je ferai sans toi
Oh yeah

On dirait qu’on à tous un ange
On dirait, on dirait bien que c’est toi
On dirait que dans ce monde étrange
On dirait que t’as toujours été là

Tout, tout tourne autour de toi
Toi, t’es la seule qui voit la beauté bien cachée derrière les visages
Tout, tout tourne autour de toi
Toi, tu sais lire en moi, promets-moi de ne jamais tourner la page

On dirait qu’on à tous un ange
On dirait, on dirait bien que c’est toi
On dirait que dans ce monde étrange
On dirait que t’as toujours été là

On dirait qu’on à tous un ange
On dirait, on dirait bien que c’est toi
On dirait que dans ce monde étrange
On dirait que t’as toujours été là

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

On dirait

English translation

You tell me to look at life in colours
When it’s dark all around me
On my back, I dragged a lot of pain
You, you always carried me on your shoulders

No, no, no, I wasn’t always confident
I doubted so many times
No, no, no, I don’t know what I can do without you
Oh yeah

It looks like we all have an angel
It looks like, it really looks like it’s you
It looks like in this strange world
It looks like you have always been here

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

You tell me that my dream is near
That I just need to stretch my hand
All my life, I can spend it listening to you
Softness is your only refrain

No, no, no, it’s not always easy for me
I prayed so many times
No, no, no, I don’t know what I could do without you
Oh yeah

It looks like we all have an angel
It looks like, it really looks like it’s you
It looks like in this strange world
It looks like you have always been here

Everything, everything turns around you
You, you’re the only one who sees the beauty hidden behind the faces
Everything, everything turns around you
You, you know how to read in me, promise me to never turn the page

It looks like we all have an angel
It looks like, it really looks like it’s you
It looks like in this strange world
It looks like you have always been here

It looks like we all have an angel
It looks like, it really looks like it’s you
It looks like in this strange world
It looks like you have always been here

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

It looks like…

I really really like Amir (thanks to Eurovision). He seems like a very kind person. Good luck to him with this new song.

I just hope the French audience does look at him beyond the Eurovision achievement and don’t box him trapped into the song “J’ai cherché” … for that we already have the majority of Eurovision fans.

I still love him. Amir and Poli where the best at ESC this year, with the most current and chart worthy songs.

I like this new song! I hope it does well. Amirs snapchat is also great. He posts some funny stuff. He seems like an all round nice guy.
