Lyrics of «Future Lover»

Original lyrics

I just wanna make art, read books and just find someone
Who likes me enough to kiss my face
I wanna explore with him and visit old bookstores
And cute little things, like drink smoothies at near cafés

Drink smoothies at near cafés

Oh, future lover
I hope it all comes naturally
I hope our love is quiet outside, but loud inside, oh baby
Oh, future lover
This song I wrote for you
This song I wrote for you, my future lover

I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good

It’s like a daydream, but I got some other, better plans
I wanna scream and shout, my heart caught in chains
Cold heart, cold hands, fire in my veins
Fire in my veins, heart in chains

I’m a volcano that is going to explode in a sec
I’m so hypnotized by someone that I’ve never ever met
Don’t wanna forget, am I dreaming yet?
Poetic dream, I don’t want it to end, oh

Three minutes of making impossible plans
Seven minutes of unnecessary panic attacks
Here I go with the coldest hands
Here I go with still no plans, oh, still no plans

I can’t cool off, no I can’t relax
Lord, what I’m gonna do, my pain just attacks
I still have the coldest hands
Oh my lord, my lord, my pain, my panic attacks, oh

I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good
I decide to be good, do good, look good

isk du indznits’ herru yes
du herru yes, herru yes
yerazum yes u du lurr eink’
menk’ t’ap’arrum yenk’ herru-herru

Armenia at Eurovision

The Caucasian country made its debut in Eurovision in 2006 with the song “Without Your Love” by André, achieving an eighth place. Since then, it has participated in fifteen editions with two absences, the first in 2012 because that year the festival was held in Baku and both countries have a tense relationship. Subsequently, it was also not present at the 2021 edition because its country was recovering from a war against its neighbor Azerbaijan.

Among all its participations, it has seven top 10 finishes and three eliminations in semifinals (2011, 2018, and 2019). Its two best positions have been two fourth places, the first with Sirusho in 2008 with “Qélé Qélé”, one of the favorites of the edition. Several years later, Aram MP3 achieved it again in the Copenhagen edition with “Not Alone.”

In its latest participation with Rosa Linn and the song “Snap”, Armenia achieved a twentieth place in the final with 61 points. Despite not being a great result, the song became a huge success thanks to TikTok , being currently the second most listened-to song in the contest history with almost 600 million views. This is an incredible feat that has made her travel several times to the United States to promote her music and will soon take her on tour with Ed Sheeran.
