Ierland: Lesley Roy - Maps

Eurovisiesongfestival

De inzending van Ierland voor het Songfestival

Lesley Roy is een Ierse singer-songwriter en gitariste. Momenteel woont ze in New York. In 2008 bracht ze haar debuutplaat uit (met daarop een liedje van Katy Perry), maar ze heeft toch vooral succes als liedjesschrijfster. Onder andere Adam Lambert en Miss Montreal zongen liedjes van haar.

Ierland vertegenwoordigen op het Eurovisiesongfestival is één van haar levensdoelen. Normaal gezien zou Lesley Roy in 2020 ook deelnemen. Maar ze gelooft dat het lied Maps nog beter is en een breder publiek aantrekt.

songtekst Maps

I’m gonna let, down all the armour, Let out the power, that I’ve been hiding, Not afraid, of the monsters, Of the nightmares, that I’ve been fighting.

Easy to run, harder to stay, Finding colours in the grey, Thought I was done, but I got it wrong, I fell twice, I’m twice as strong.

I’ve been searching all the wrong places, I’ve been trying too many faces, Only one way to go, This is the way back home.

I’ve been searching all the wrong places, I’ve been trying too many faces, Only one way to go, This is the way back home.

(I ) had to take, all of the long ways, All the wrong ways, cause I couldn’t see, All the signs, all of the mistakes, Pointing one way, to get back to me.

It’s easy to run, harder to stay, Finding colours in the grey, Thought I was done, but I got it wrong, I fell twice, I’m twice as strong.

I’ve been searching all the wrong places, I’ve been trying too many faces, Only one way to go, This is the way back home.

I’ve been searching all the wrong places, I’ve been trying too many faces, Only one way to go, This is the way back home.

My soul is a map, My heart is a compass, I am the road.

There’s only one way to go, This is the way back home.

My soul is a map, My heart is a compass, I am the road.

There’s only one way to go, This is the way back home.

I’ve been searching all the wrong places, I’ve been trying too many faces, Only one way to go, This is the way back home.

I’ve been searching all the wrong places, I’ve been trying too many faces, Only one way to go, This is the way back home.
