Dons

Dons is a renowned Latvian pop/rock icon and one of the nation's most-awarded artists of the last decade.

The soulful power-ballad Hollow was composed with Irish songwriter and producer Liam Geddes and American songwriter Kate Northrop, and was initially released in Latvian.

The singer draws profound inspiration from compelling, soul-stirring melodies, and during the song’s creation, all collaborators shared a unanimous sense that they had crafted something truly magical.

Today, after decades of success and sold-out arena and stadium shows, Dons still finds his happiest moments as an artist standing in front of an audience, sharing the magic of music.

Lyrics of Hollow

Don’t look now
You’ll see me crying rivers I might drown
Don’t know how
Oh will I ever find my own way out

I don’t wanna lose me so cruelly
I’m drifting in and out of who I am
So help me understand

It’s killing me slow
Try to make me just another believer
Everybody just pretending they're preachers, preachers
It's killing me slow
Yeah I'd rather let them dig my grave shallow
Instead of selling out to something so hollow, hollow

Not afraid
Oh to tell you all my sins I can’t escape
No I won’t change
Woah it's like a bad disease that I can’t shake

I don’t wanna lose me so cruelly
I’m drifting in and out of who I am
So help me understand

It’s killing me slow
They try to make me just another believer
Everybody just pretending they're preachers, preachers
It's killing me slow
Yeah I'd rather let them dig my grave shallow
Instead of selling out to something so hollow
