She won the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 in Oslo, Norway, with her song, ‘Satellite’, and went on to become one of Germany’s most popular artists. Since winning, she has released four albums and has another on the way later this year. Today, Lena has released the acoustic version of one of the songs which will be on that album!
Earlier this year, Lena announced that her fifth studio album, Gemini, would be released in 2017. At the same time, she released her first single from that Album, Lost in You.
If I Wasn’t Your Daughter
Just moments ago, she debuted the second single from Gemini, an acoustic version of the song, If I Wasn’t Your Daughter. Listen to the song through Spotify below!
In the song, Lena sings about the special bond that a daughter has with her father. Lena’s own father deserted her and her family when she was only two years old. It seems that she is singing the song as a message to her father.
“If I wasn’t your daughter, couldn’t have loved you better.
If it wasn’t important, could’ve walked away.
Whatever you did, you made me like this,
I’m one of your great mistakes.
Whatever it is, Daddy I’m here, whenever you need to…”
“Tell me what happened.
Daddy what happened?
Don’t you wanna know a thing about me?”
“If I wasn’t your daughter, I couldn’t love you like this.”
The song is very powerful, and is likely to strike a chord with anyone who hasn’t had a strong relationship with their father, for whatever reason.
What do you think of Lena’s new single? Is it everything you hoped for? Are you excited to hear all the other songs coming on her new album, Gemini? Let us know in the comments section below!
