14. LITHUANIA: Gina Sabrina -“Flames”

“Flames”

Performed by: Gina Sabrina
Music by: Gina Sabrina
Lyrics by: Gina Sabrina

Sabrina is 21 years old and from Lithuania. She’s an aspiring singer-songwriter who’s hoping to make it big in the music industry one day. When not writing songs and playing music on her guitar, her other big hobbies include photography and roaming around the city.

“My favourite music genre to listen to is rock, and my favourite bands are Muse and Milky Chance,” says Sabrina.

Her song “Flames” is about a love-hate relationship, with both sides falling in and out of it rather chaotically.

This is the first time Sabrina enters the Home Composed Song Contest. It is even the first time for a song representing Lithuania! So a big warm welcome to Sabrina and best of luck in the competition!

Lyrics:

I remember wondering what pushed me back from you
You’ve been telling me that’s what you used to think of too
We pretended that it’s nothing, but for how long it’s not been true?
You can’t just say the reality will show itself to us out the blue

You wanted me to believe
That it’s easy as it looks
But it’s not that easy

We burn like flames
We pass like days
Explode like grenades
Follow the chase
So why do we need
Those barricades
Take off these chains

Why the blame shifts on me when you’re the one who’s acting cold?
Why do I have to drag you out, but then you claim you’re very bold?
Do you understand the need of simply not  coming back to me
In the hardest moments when your help is what I don’t need?

You wanted me to believe
That it’s easy as it looks
You kept covering my eyes
And sugarcoated the brutal truth
You withdrew me from the hardships
That I should have faced myself
Still, it’s not that easy

We burn like flames
We pass like days
Explode like grenades
Follow the chase
So why do we need
Those barricades
Take off these chains
And make that change

We burn like flames
We pass like days

We burn like flames
We pass like days
Explode like grenades
Follow the chase
So why do we need
Those barricades
Take off these chains
And make that change

We burn like flames
We pass like days
Take off these chains
Kiss me in the rain
