Estonia and the Eurovision Song Contest
To select its 2006 Eurovision Song Contest representative, ETV organised a national final with 10 participants. One of them was Ines, who represented Estonia in 2000 with Once in a lifetime.

Sandra Oxenryd
The 23-year old Sandra Oxenryd comes from Sweden, just like Anna Sahlene, who represented Estonia in 2002 and came third with Runaway. In 2005, Sandra won the Swedish talent scout show Fame Factory. In Athens, she will perform her song with three backing vocals from Sweden and two from Estonia.

Through my window
When life is a road going nowhere
I'm alone though you're gonna be right here
You're my baby
When life is a road going somewhere
All alone I have to hold on to go on

I'm looking through my window
What about sun you made shine
What about rain you cried on my pillow

And maybe somebody some day
Finds a way back home but it's gonna be a long way
It's been a long day
And maybe somebody some way
Highs and lows it's always the same thing
Anyway

I'm looking through my window
What about sun you made shine
What about rain you cried on my pillow
I'm looking through my window
What about us tell me why
I still can't see where's the rainbow

I can't find the words lose my nerve
And grass just turns to stone
When all hopes are high I have my pride
Show you what I'm really like inside
