She’s back! Loreen returns to compete at Melodifestivalen for the third time. She debuted at the contest in 2011 and reached the andra chansen with “My Heart Is Refusing Me“. She returned to the contest a year later with “Euphoria” and won Melodifestivalen before going on to win Eurovision Song Contest in Baku.

Her song “Statements” is written by Loreen together with the songwriting team The Family — Anton Hård af Segerstad, Joy Deb and Linnea Deb.

“Statements” performance:

“Statements” lyrics / text — Loreen

Karma, karma, come and dance with me
read between the lies and set me free

Imagine the beginning of the end
and we don’t need to ever talk again

We don’t need your way out
We don’t need your way out
We don’t need your way out

Words cut, but I don’t care how much it hurts
shades for the blind, can’t hear your empty words

We don’t need noooooo
We don’t need noooooo

Statements
Statements

Mother Mary try to keep it real
save your prayers for peace and let us heal

Did our best, but you say otherwise
We’re building up for war in paradise
Why?

We don’t need your way out
We don’t need your way out
We don’t need your way out
We don’t need your way out

Words cut, but I don’t care how much it hurts
shades for the blind, can’t hear your empty words

We don’t need nooooo
We don’t need nooooo

Holy sh*t the instrumentation of the song is crazy, I’m so in love with it. Also this song does have a chorus Wiwi could you reformat this please. Ex. Verse 1: Karma, karma, come and dance with me read between the lies and set me free Imagine the beginning of the end and we don’t need to ever talk again Prechorus: We don’t need your way out We don’t need your way out We don’t need your way out Chorus: Words cut, but I don’t care how much it hurts shades for the blind, can’t hear your empty words We… Read more »

This is heavily overrated, bad song with implicit political meaning.

A lot of people seem to be saying it isn’t a ‘Euphoria’… which seems silly, because obviously it isn’t. Euphoria happened in 2012- and, all the way up to now she has been developing herself and her music to be something deeper- as she said in the interview, it’s about communicating the message she wants to share.

So yes, perhaps it is not as accessible to people like Euphoria was, but this is way, way more interesting. I hope Sweden chooses her 🙂

only people who don’t understand English would argue this song doesn’t make sense.

A very politically relevant song. In the context of Trump, the rise of the Right and fascism around the globe- this song is very understandable. I love all the multi-layers of meaning especially “we’re building up for war in paradise” WOW. I feel Loreen will win Melodifestivalen and Eurovision again!

Typical ESC Swede song with lyrics that doesn’t make sense.

It does make sense.

And giving us something that’s not cheesy, overdone and musically boring is not what I would call ‘going too far’. That’s what an artist is supposed to do, push the buttons.
And it’s also a very smart move. Remember last year’s winner? Yeah.

She gives me Aminata vibes with this song. While I wish it wins ESC if it were to go it would definitely be a Top 5.

It doesnt make much sense, does it? She went a bit too far with the ” weirdness ” and the ” astistry ” this time. Euphoria was instant, accesible.
