They fought their way through two phases of a national final before winning Slovenia’s ticket for Eurovision. And now LPS are poised to perform their upbeat track “Disko” fifth in the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 on May 10. 

Scroll down to read the “Disko” lyrics. 

Slovenia in Eurovision 2022: LPS “Disko” 

LPS – which stands for Last Pizza Slice – formed in 2018. As well as their Eurovision entry, they have a broad musical back catalogue touching on rock, soul, jazz, funk and blues. The group is comprised of five members: Filip on vocals, Gašper on drums, Mark on electric guitar, Zala on bass and tenor and alto saxophones, and Žiga on keyboard.

The group made their way to Eurovision through Slovenia’s long established national final EMA. They passed through the preliminary EMA Freš round, cleared a semi-final and then cruised to victory in the grand final, 13 points clear of their next biggest rival.

What do the “Disko” lyrics mean?

Despite an upbeat disco sound, “Disko” actually deals with heartbreak. Vocalist Filip was dumped by his girlfriend at a disco. Fortunately, the group have gone from crying at the discotheque to performing on the Eurovision stage. 

“I want you but you’re giving your heart to another,” Filip sings, lamenting the lost relationship, “We’re dancing, but only in my dreams.” 

Indeed the song wrestles with the pain of heartbreak. “My heart is drowning in tears,” the lyrics continue, “With each heartbeat, my blood flows slower.” 

There is at least a note of optimism from the band, where they try to move on, adding the line, “From now on I’ll go to the disco alone.”

“Disko” lyrics – LPS (Slovenia Eurovision 2022)

Written and composed by: Filip Vidušin, Gašper Hlupič, Mark Semeja, Zala Velenšek, Žiga Žvižej

Original Slovenian text

Bila sva v disku
Ko je LPS igral
Fičo spet je nekaj piskal
Žvižej solo je zasral

Takrat se mi je že zazdelo
Da preveč ti gledaš stran
Ta pogled, poln nezvestobe
Že bil predobro mi je znan
 
Ker gledam te
Ko brez mene z drugim stran odhajaš
Hočem te
A ti drugemu srce oddajaš
Pleševa
Ampak to je le v mojih sanjah
Ne, ne bo te nazaj
 
Gledam te
Ko brez mene z drugim stran odhajaš
Hočem te
A ti drugemu srce oddajaš
Pleševa
Ampak to je le v mojih sanjah
Ne, ne bo te nazaj
 
S sten gledajo me slike
Spremljajo me vsak korak
Vrača mi spomine vsaka
Srce v solzah se namaka
Vsak utrip se kri pretaka počasneje
 
Še si tu
Pa čeprav te ni
Ta tvoj vonj
Vsako jutro spet me prebudi
 
A od zdaj
Bom v disko hodil sam
In gledal isti film
Le da svojo vlogo igram
 
Ker gledam te
Ko brez mene z drugim stran odhajaš
Hočem te
A ti drugemu srce oddajaš
Pleševa
Ampak to je le v mojih sanjah
Ne, ne bo te, ne bo te več nazaj
 
Ne bo te več in gledam te
Ko brez mene z drugim stran odhajaš
Hočem te
A ti drugemu srce oddajaš
Pleševa
Ampak to je le v mojih sanjah
Ne, ne bo te nazaj

English translation

We were at the disco
When LPS were playing
Fičo was squeaking again
Žvižej messed up his solo

I already thought then
That you were looking away too much
This look full of unfaithfulness
I knew it well already

Because I’m watching you
As you walk away not with me but with another guy
I want you
But you’re giving your heart to another
We’re dancing
But only in my dreams
No, you won’t be back

I’m watching you
As you walk away not with me but with another guy
I want you
But you’re giving your heart to another
We’re dancing
But only in my dreams
No, you won’t be back

Pictures are looking at me from the wall
They are there every step
Every one brings back memories
My heart is drowning in tears
With each heartbeat my blood is flowing more and more slowly

You’re still here
Even though you’re not
The smell of you
Wakes me up again each morning

But from now on
I’ll go to the disco alone
And watch the same movie
Not playing my role

Because I’m watching you
As you walk away not with me but with another guy
I want you
But you’re giving your heart to another
We’re dancing
But only in my dreams

No, you won’t be, you won’t be back
You won’t be back and I’m watching you
As you walk away not with me but with another guy
I want you
But you’re giving your heart to another
We’re dancing
But only in my dreams
No, you won’t be back

This is actually in my top three! I really love it. And one weird I love about it is the “but you are giving your heart to another” part because in Slovenian it sounds almost exactly like it sounds in my native Polish. It feels like I am listening to a song in a foreign language and suddenly I hear a phrase in my language and it is so fun

I love this song. So much better than anything a group of seven Swedes can put together.

This song is in my top 10 and it pains me to see how little people seem to care about this song. The message, though a bit cliché, is still cute, and the way the band works together gives off such fun vibes. I really do hope for Slovenia that they can qualify, because LPS deserves it

Most underrated song of the year. LUMA stans are still pissed

Really well made lyrics and song, a high school band performing at Eurovision is a really fun concept and one that could draw some votes. I’d see this being a dark horse, it hits the same niches of Dadi Freyr

This is one of those “Stop singing about it and ask her out” type of songs. It works for Eurovision because it’s a big event where everyone can get behind the “in the now” mode. The issues with this entry are not so much with the lyrics, but rather with the music and its execution.

Even Bulgaria has more chances to qualify than this. Next time try to send a non totally boring song.
