Eurovision 2012 Countdown: The Fire in Your Eyes


 I thought I would share with you one of my favourite Eurovision songs and, in my opinion, one of the prettiest - The Fire in Your Eyes by Boaz Mauda, which was the Israeli entry in the 2008 competition in Belgrade in Serbia.

 Although I don't understand most of the lyrics, I have still always found it beautiful. 

 I don't speak Hebrew, so I have to trust the Internet when it come to translations. I've checked a couple of lyrics sites and the general consensus for the chorus seems to be,

"Not a starlight,
You are now.
With me, with me, as if real,
Like back then."

 Which I think is very beautiful. I was puzzled by the graphics on this video saying the song was second on the running order when I remember it being later, then I found out that it was second in its semi-final, so that must be where the video is from. In the final this song was seventh in the running order.

 Anyway, overall I really like this song and am glad it did quite well - it came ninth out of twenty-five songs.

 So well done to Boaz Mauda and well done to Israel for this lovely song.

 It really is very beautiful ♥

 Thanks for reading.
