1996: Eurovision Songcontest: The Voice

The voice - Eimear Quinn 🎢

Back in the day, when the Eurovision Songcontest still had a lot to do with the actual singing-quality, this was a song that touched many people's hearts. The voice of an Angel. She had my vote. I even bought the CD-single afterwards.


Lyrics:

I hear the voice on the wind
And I hear you call out my name
Listen my child you say to me

I am the voice of your history
Be not afraid, come follow me
Answer my call and Ill set you free

I am the voice in the wind and the pouring rain
I am the voice of your hunger and pain
I am the voice that always is calling you
I am the voice and I will remain


I am the voice in the fields when the summers gone
The dance of the leaves when the autumn winds blow
Never did I sleep throughout all the cold winter long
I am the force that in springtime will grow


I am the voice of the past that will always be
Filled with my sorrows and blood in my fields
I am the voice of the future
Bring me your peace, bring me your peace
And my wounds they will heal

nighttime sounds: an owl in a tree,
wind rustling the remaining leaves
gnarly branches,
black against the moon

the sweetest dreams,
taking residence in my heart

you & I
an impossible possibility
the sheets will not reveal my secrets


In silence

never would there evermore
a song upon a breeze
for music has forsaken us
went lost among the trees

now darkness has surrounded us
and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night
