This year's Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest is Get a life, get alive sung by Eric Papilaya, a young singer- finalist of the latest edition of the talent show Starmania.

Eric will be competing in this year's semi final. Austria was fortunate to be awarded the first wildcard during the draw for the running order so he will be performing in the 27th position.

Get A Life-Get Alive
( Composer :Greg Usek, Lyrics: Austin Howard)
Livin' in this world 'be a little too much
Don't let it get you down
Get up and strut

If you ever get the chance
Hold your hand out and take it
Make a promise to yourself
Don't you break it

I tried to get up when I was upside down
'got to find a way to turn my life around

This is the time for us to get a life
Open your mind to a better life
There's no way of knowing
Where you're going
Get a life – a better life

Go outta your way
And make some compromise
Hold on to your dreams
And you will realize
If you don't understand it
Don't take it for granted
Open you mind to a better life

Let's turn up the heat
Start a ripple in the water
Wake the soul from its sleep
No particular order

'Could be wasting precious time
Free the mind are you willing
Don't be afraid
Do your dance and start living
I've got a vision in mind
I'm doing my time
I'm livin' my life
'cause I've opened my mind

This is the time for us to get a life
Open your mind to a better life
There's no way of knowing
Where you're going
Get a life – a better life

Go outta your way
And make some compromise
Hold on to your dreams
And you will realize
If you don't understand it
Don't take it for granted

There's no way of knowing
Where you're going
This is the time for us to get a life

This is the time for us to get a life
Open your mind to a better life
There's no way of knowing
Where you're going
Get a life – a better life

Go outta your way
And make some compromise
Hold on to your dreams
And you will realise
If you don't understand it
Don't take it for granted

This is the time – to get a life
This is the time – to get a life
This is the time for us to get a life.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
