Eurovision 2018

OneDayLove – Switzerland 1981 – Peter, Sue & Marc- Io senza te

Hello dear readers of Eurovision Ireland!

Today we continue with our exciting series: One Day Love!

Each week we celebrate one song from Eurovision History. Here, you can find facts like: year, country, artist, title of the song, lyrics (translations when the song is in another language other than English), video, points and placement in the semi-final, final or even national final (if the song only performed at that stage of the competition).

This week we have a special guest for our One Day Love, and it comes this time all the way from Switzerland. Io Senza Te (Me Without You) managed to get the most sets of 12 points in 1981 and came close to winning the whole contest.

Year: 1981

Country: Switzerland

Artist:  Peter, Sue & Marc

Title: Io Senza Te

Lyrics:

Dopo la tempesta camminiamo un po’
Sulla sabbia pesta chiacchieriamo un po’
Ho sbagliato io, hai sbagliato tu
Quel che è stato è stato, non parliamone più

Io senza te, cosa farei?
Io non respiro se tu non ci sei
Io senza te, cosa sarei?
Una farfalla che non vola più

Prenderti nel vento come un anno fa
Stesso sentimento, stessa intensità
E trovar parole che non dissi mai
Mentre il sole muore sul mio cuore stai

Io senza te, cosa farei
Della mia vita e dei giorni miei?
Io senza te, come farei?
Amore mio, t’inventerei

Io senza te, cosa farei?
Io senza te, come farei?
Amore mio t’inventerei
Amore mio t’inventerei

English Lyrics

Me without you
Fire, wind and water couldn’t frighten me
When I took the long road to my destiny
I was used to losing, now I’m bound to win
‘Cause the day I found you made it all begin
 
Me without you, what would I own?
A dream of flying but wings made of stone
Me without you, oh… what would I do?
I’d take the long road right back to you
 
Never knew the answer to my world of dreams
Now the explanation lies in you, it seems
Living for tomorrow, far from yesterday
Ever since you told me: “Let me share your way”
 
Me without you, what would I own?
A dream of flying but wings made of stone
Me without you, oh… what would I do?
I’d take the long road right back to you
 
Me without you – what would I do? Oh…
Me without you, oh… what would I do?
I’d take the long road right back to you
 
I’d take the long road right back to you

Points: 121

Place in the Final: 4th
