RULES


01. This is a monthly contest, modeled after Eurovision. You need to have at least 10 posts to your credit to take part.
02. You can pick any country in the world.
03. The artist you choose has either to be a citizen of the country they'll represent or to have been born there. At least HALF of the people from your act must be from the country you choose.
04. Your song must be 10 years old at the most. For 2017, eligible entries must have been released after December 31st, 2006.
05. Eurovision entries are not allowed. Songs from concurrent Eurovision heats are not allowed either.
06. The song cannot have been a UK/US Top 40 hit, as it would give it an unfair advantage.
07. The song can be a remix.
08. The song cannot be a cover version.
09. If your song features a sample, please state it early enough, so the other contestants can decide whether it is acceptable or not by poll.
10. You cannot vote for your own country.
11. Discussion about one's favourites during the contest is NOT ALLOWED, as it has the potential to influence the voting.
12. PLEASE try and choose a song not everyone would know, the point is to discover new artists.
13. If a song becomes or is found to be ineligible at any time before the voting is over, it will be disqualified.
14. Make sure you understand all the rules before you take part. You will need to devote about 2 hours of your time to this game to listen to all the entries at least once. Do a little research on your entry before you present it, be sure that it doesn't violate any rules, and check here to see if it has taken part before.

Lyrics
I can't seem to look into your eyes
And see the things that leave me hanging in the air,
Hanging in the air.

All the stages and seasons lead me to you, along with the wind
And my thoughts,
Slowly

(But) Again, I had to run away
I had to run
Not to give myself away.
All the madness leading me to you
Makes me forget
(That) I am not suppose to cry

Look right into my eyes
And feel the emotion that will rise when you look at me.
The universe conspires in our favor,
the consequence of our destiny is love,
Forever I'll love you

But maybe you can't understand
This thing, that is trying to make the world believe
That my love
Will not be a passing thing
(For) I'll love you from January to January again
Till the world ends
