Lena Philipsson will not sing the Swedish Eurovision Song Contest entry in her own language, but in English. Newspaper Aftonbladet reported that today, as well as several visitors of esctoday.com.
The Swedish broadcaster SVT submitted the English version, written by T. Orup Eriksson, to the European Broadcasting Union before the official deadline. Currently Sweden can be found in the higher aeras of the polls.
Here's the chorus of the English version of Det gör ont, It hurts:
Hurts, oh it hurts, really hurts
In the middle of the night
In the light of the day
You know that it hurts, oh it hurts, really hurts
And I wish I could be stronger
No longer afraid
Nobody but me
Could know the way I feel
How it hurts
Oh, it hurts
