by René Romkes 69 views

This year's Dutch representative, Edsilia Rombley, announced today that she will sing in English after all in Helsinki. The English version of Nooit meer zonder jou will be On top of the world. The news has been revealed tonight in The Dutch 8 o'clock news, the NOS Journaal.

Edsilia made her decision during the weekend, as she already told esctoday.com during an exclusive interview last week. "As for the choice of language; actually I'm going to decide about that this weekend. We asked somebody to write an English version of Nooit meer zonder jou, and today (=Friday!) we will hear the result. I have 2 important demands; the lyrics have to be really good and I don't want any of the current power of the song to get lost" she told us last week.

A couple of months ago, when Edsilia was being introducedto becomethis year's Dutch participant, she seemed to be very convinced of singing in Dutch. However, she got many reactions on that early decision. Fans from all over the world asked her to think it over, and to sing in English after all. Therefore Edsilia wanted toconsider an English version of Nooit meer zonder jou as well as she wants her message to be understood by the international audiences. The English lyrics were written by Martin Gijzemijter, Maarten ten Hoveand Tjeerd Oosterhuis

It isn't known yet when the song will be recorded, but as soon as there's more news about the new version of the Dutch entry, esctoday willbring it to you.

Lyrics

I’ve been trying to let you go,
And I thought I was strong,
But your love’s got a hold on me and,
Now I can’t move on.
Are we making the same mistake?
Have we learned from the past?
Could this be our second chance, the one that’s gonna last?

Chorus:
On top of the world, I’m reaching out,
On top of the world, I sing out loud.
Just promise to never break my heart,
I’ll give you forever.

On top of the world, just you and I,
So promise to never say goodbye.
Now I know, we are forever more

People may come and go,
But I need you to stay.
Deep within I have always known,
That we would find a way.

Chorus:
On top of the world, I’m reaching out
On top of the world, I sing out loud
Just promise to never break my heart,
I’ll give you forever.

On top of the world , just you and I.
So promise to never say goodbye.
Now I know, we are forever more.

I know we’ve tried it all before,
It will be better now I’m sure.
Been so blind, you make me see
How strong I am when you’re with me.
Say your love is here to stay,
Need you more everyday.
