Lyrics

Dreamt of you last night
Woke up, you weren’t there
Five nights in a row of dreams I’ve never shared
You come without a warning, early in the morning
Timing’s never been our thing
Leaving me with guilt
The only souvenir you bring

I’m with him and you’re a secret treasure
He’s devotion, you’re a guilty pleasure
I’m with him and this is real life, honey
Guess the joke’s no longer funny
I’m with him until the death do us part
But it doesn’t do for this hungry heart
I’m with him, but in my frantic hеad
You always come and say

Would you run away?
Would you run away with me?
Would you run away?
Would you run away?

One lovе is enough, that’s all you ever get
Least that’s what they tell you
Still, I can’t forget
Eyes like burning ashes, ‘til the sunlight flashes
Chemical, but I’ve been taught
Captivated by the thunderstorm in which I’m caught

I’m with him and you’re a secret treasure
He’s devotion, you’re a guilty pleasure
I’m with him and this is real life, honey
Guess the joke’s no longer funny
I’m with him until the death do us part
But it doesn’t do for this hungry heart
I’m with him, but in my frantic head
You always come and say

Would you run away? (Will you run away?)
Would you run away with me?
Would you run away? (Will you run away?)
Would you run away?
(Would you run away?)

In this real life, there’s no way
In this real life, I have to say (Would you run away?)
In this real life, there’s no way
In this real life

I’m with him and you’re a secret treasure
He’s devotion, you’re a guilty pleasure
I’m with him and this is real life, honey
Guess the joke’s no longer funny
I’m with him until the death do us part
But it doesn’t do for this hungry heart
I’m with him, but in my frantic head
You always come and say, say, say

Would you run away? (Will you run away?)
Would you run away with me?
Would you run away? (Will you run away?)
Would you run away?
(Would you run away?)

In this real life, there’s no way (Would you run away?)
In this real life, I have to say (Would you run away?)
In this real life, there’s no way (Would you run away?)
In this real life

Croatia in Eurovision

Croatia made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1993. Prior to this, Croatia participated in the Eurovision Song Contest as part of Yugoslavia.

Croatia first participated in the Eurovision Song Contest after qualifying from the pre-selection show, Kvalifikacija za Millstreet. The country is located on the eastern side of the Adriatic Sea, across from Italy on the western side.

Between 1993 and 2011, the Croatian entry was selected using the national final Dora. After that, Croatia opted for an internal selection. To date, the best placing for Croatia is fourth, which it achieved in 1996 and 1999. The country has yet to win the Eurovision Song Contest although the Croatian band Riva won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1989 which meant that the contest was held in Croatia’s capital, Zagreb, in 1990.
