Performed by: Tony Olsen

Lyrics by: Tony Olsen

Tony Olsen is 47 years old and comes from Grindsted in Denmark.

In his own words:
I work as a service assistant on a School, and write and compose in my spare time.

I’ve been singing since the age of 12 and play organ, keyboard, accordion, and guitar. I have been singing in a local choir, in a band and as a soloist at various events.

Won the HCSC in 1996, 1999, 2000 and 2011.

After a little break, I’ve decided to try this contest again with a little Danish song, I wrote some years ago. Hope you like it. Good luck to everyone. 🙂

Lyrics:
Lyset brænder
Hjertet hamrer
Lyden skræmmer
Er der håb derude
Tårer falder
Gråden kalder
Jeg troede at du ville vente her
At de søde ord du sendte aldrig ville ende

Kærligheden tog du – Kærligheden fik du
Men forlod mig med et hjerte itu
Du fik kys og kram
Og jeg holdt dig varm
Jeg troede du gemte mig i hjertets diagram

En helt ny start
Det står jo klart
Jeg må være smart
Jeg må ta´ nye chancer
Jeg så på dig
Et smil fra mig
Du var så sej
Du lærte mig den sande lykke
Du er mit eneste smykke

Kærligheden tog du – Kærligheden fik du
Men forlod mig med et hjerte itu
Du fik kys og kram
Og jeg holdt dig varm
Jeg troede du gemte mig i hjertets diagram

Kærligheden tog du – Kærligheden fik du
Men forlod mig med et hjerte itu
Du fik kys og kram
Og jeg holdt dig varm
Jeg troede du gemte mig i hjertets diagram

Translation:
The light is burning
The heart beats
The sound scares
Is there hope out there?
Tear falls
Cry calls
I thought you´d wait here
That the sweet words you sent would never end

Love you took – Love you got
But left me with a broken heart
You got kisses and hugs
I kept you warm
I thought you hid me in the heart chart

A brand new start
It is clear
I have to be smart
I have to take new chances
I looked at you
A smile from me
You were so cool
You taught me the true happiness
You are my only piece of jewelry

Love you took – Love you got
But left me with a broken heart
You got kisses and hugs
I kept you warm
I thought you hid me in the heart chart

Love you took – Love you got
But left me with a broken heart
You got kisses and hugs
I kept you warm
I thought you hid me in the heart chart
