Mariana
The 27-year old Mariana Popova started with music, dance and ballet at a young age. When she was 18, she joined the group Cocomania. In 2000 she started her solo-carreer. Last year, she already took part in the Bulgarian national selection and came fifth as part of a group of 4.

Let me cry
Honey, honey, honey, honey�
Honey, honey, honey, honey�
Please let me cry, just let me cry�

Told you I was aware
I had feelings to share with you
Something�s over for good –
Love, passion, cheerful mood, the truth

Let�s say goodbye
And never back again, let me cry
I wanted you, you wanted to lie
I knew that it would happen this way

Learning how to obey
Lost my heart and my face, my soul

Let�s say goodbye
And never back again, let me cry
I wanted you, you wanted to lie
I knew that it would happen this way

Let�s say goodbye
And never back again, let me cry
I wanted you, you wanted to lie
I knew that it would happen this way
