On 25 February, The Humans won Selectia Nationala 2018 with the song “Goodbye”. The six-piece band will now go on to represent Romania at Eurovision in Lisbon. They hope to convey a message of hope to all those who battle depression and negative thoughts. Check out the Goodbye lyrics below!
“Goodbye” was inspired by the band members’ personal life experiences. The song is a manifest towards helping those in need who fight their demons alone, in the dark. We are becoming more and more dehumanized and self-centered, turning a blind eye to the ones around us, while we should reach out and rescue our kind.
The Goodbye lyrics were written by The Humans singer Cristina Caramarcu. They speak of someone’s despair and wish “to kiss the emptiness” and bid the world goodbye. However, in the latter part of the song, the lyrics take a positive turn, as a different voice brings hope, showcasing “the beauty of the precious gifts we have”.
