De Forest, Emmelie - Only Teardrops Lyrics




The sky is red tonight
We're on the edge tonight
No shooting star to guide us

Eye for an eye
Why tear each other apart?
Please tell me why
Why do we make it so hard?
Look at us now
We only got ourselves to blame
It's such a shame

How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules?
Between us
Only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right?
Between us
Only teardrops

So come and face me now
Here on the stage tonight
Let's leave the past behind us

Eye for an eye
Why tear each other apart?
Please tell me why
Why do we make it so hard?
Look at us now
We only got ourselves to blame
It's such a shame

Tell me
How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules?
Between us
Only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right?
Between us
Only teardrops

(Tell me now)
What's gone between us?
Has come between us?
Only teardrops
(Tell me now)
What's gone between us?
Has come between us?

How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules?
Between us
Only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right?
Between us
Only teardrops
Only teardrops
Oh... only teardrops
Only teardrops

How many times can we win and lose?
How many times can we break the rules?
Between us
Only teardrops

How many times do we have to fight?
How many times till we get it right?
Between us
Only teardrops

    This is good but the chicken song is also good. Screw the haters.

  69. ladyi7609

    This is one of those rare Eurovision-winning pop songs that has actual balls and is worth listening to over and over again. Denmark chose correctly in 2013 and "Only Teardrops" is one of the top ten best Eurovision winning songs out there.

  70. Kenzo -.-

    I miss that time Music was Music..

  71. I would love to hear her with Evanescence and Lindsey Stirling

  87. Nahum Pulmones

    Kazakhstan of Junior Eurovision 2018's performance was inspired by this performance I'm watching. Why? This is a masterpiece like the winner's performance of 2012 and 2016 (1st runner up).

  92. Sir Speedwagon

    1:00 это же Соеров.
