olivia garcia freedom hearts lyrics uk eurovision 2017

Sixteen-year-old Olivia Garcia hails from Wigan. She cut her teeth competing on X Factor 2016, making it all the way to the six-chair challenge.

Her song “Freedom Hearts” was written by a team of Swedes, which may be apparent from the questionable title.

Among her songwriters is Gabriel Alares, who has written Eurovision songs including “Icebreaker” (Norway 2016), “Falling Stars” (Moldova 2016) and “A Million Voice” (Russia 2015).

You can find the “Freedom Hearts” lyrics below, as well as her performance:

“Freedom Hearts” lyrics — Olivia Garcia

Failing from the start, made us fall apart
and look here we are
Slowly fading out, should we run and shout
or stay in the dark?

I don’t know…

Listen to whispers of all these freedom hearts
Listen real closely, we’ll find another start
Someone said ‘Yes We Can’ but still we are torn apart
So here we are…

Oh, oh
We won’t be run down, no we won’t stand down
We’re freedom hearts
Let you know, oh
You hear the same cry, we’re on the same side
We’re freedom hearts

Listen to whispers of all these freedom hearts
Listen real closely, we’ll find another start
Singing oh, oh
We won’t be run down, no we won’t stand down
‘cos we’ve got freedom hearts

Mad men in suits, shiny hair and shoes
How about me and you?
Oh, oh
Years passing by, still have a life
We just didn’t choose
No, no, no

Listen to whispers of all these freedom hearts
Listen real closely, we’ll find another start
Someone said ‘Yes We Can’ but still we are torn apart
So here we are…

Singing oh, oh
We won’t be run down, no we won’t stand down
We’re freedom hearts
Let you know, oh
You hear the same cry, we’re on the same side
We’re freedom hearts

Listen to whispers of all these freedom hearts
Listen real closely, we’ll find another start
Singing oh, oh
We won’t be run down, no we won’t stand down
‘cos we’ve got freedom hearts

Watch us standing tall, we know who we are
They don’t care, that’s why it’s up to you and I
If we play it right, we will win this fight
Oh, oh, oh

Why don’t you care about us?
Why don’t you care about us?

Oh, oh
We won’t be run down, no we won’t stand down
We’re freedom hearts
Let you know, oh
You hear the same cry, we’re on the same side
We’re freedom hearts

Listen to whispers of all these freedom hearts
Listen real closely, we’ll find another start
Singing oh, oh
We won’t be run down, no we won’t stand down
‘cos we’ve got freedom hearts
