After teasing us last week, Cyprus has now laid out its cards for Eurovision 2023. The country’s act for the contest in Liverpool, Andrew Lambrou, has officially released his entry “Break A Broken Heart”.
The song has been written by the Scandinavians Thomas Stengaard, Marcus Winther-John, Jimmy Jansson and Jimmy “Joker” Thörnfeldt.
Andrew Lambrou – “Break A Broken Heart”
The lyrics speak of perseverance and hint at strength developed through struggle. You can’t break a heart if it’s already broken!
You lift me up but leave me in the gutter.
Tear me up and move on to another.
I’m torn apart, but I am a survivor.
You can’t, you can’t break a broken heart.
You can’t break a broken heart
