Lesley Roy is a singer-songwriter from Balbriggan Co. Dublin, Ireland. She splits her time between her home in the East Village of New York City and her native Ireland. Lesley released her debut album, 'Unbeautiful', while in New York in 2008 on Jive/Sony Records, produced by Max Martin.

As a songwriter, Lesley's career has been prolific, lending her talents to numbers performed by artists including Adam Lambert, Miss Montreal, Medina, Jana Kramer, Marlee Scott and Deorro. Ireland's entry, Story of My Life, was penned and co-produced by Lesley Roy alongside some of her favourite co-writers in Nashville: Robert Marvin, Catt Gravitt and Tom Shapiro." We wanted something uptempo and triumphant, which centres around overcoming your difficulties in life and getting back up again," Lesley says.

Writing her album with Max Martin in Sweden and performing at Coachella with Deorro have been Lesley's major career highlights to date. She credits early Motown, Fleetwood Mac and Sheryl Crow among her early musical influences, and more recently, she has been inspired by acts including Robyn, Kacey Musgrave and Christine and the Queens. Lesley said that working with theatre-makers and club creators ThisIsPopBaby on this year's Irish entry "changes the game as far as Ireland and the European song competition goes - ThisIsPopBaby are injecting a fresh, fun vision that encapsulates a modern Ireland."

Lyrics of Story Of My Life

  • English
Everybody told me that I'd never be someone, I'm not a puppet on a string no, no I'm not, Everybody said that I was always breaking rules, Why would I ever wanna put myself inside a box. I don't care, what they say, And who are they, anyway. The story of my life, it's mine, I made it on my own, that's right, And now I sing, na na na na na na, Hey! Hey! Hey! My life, it's mine, my my life it's mine. They said if I was blonde that I could make it so I did it, Then they said you're almost perfect but you talk too much. HA! Try to dumb it down a little, make sure that you're in the middle, Rock it all you want but make it pop enough! I don't care, what they say, And who are they, anyway, The story of my life, It's Mine, I made it on my own, that's right And now I sing, na na na na na na, Hey! Hey! Hey! My life it's mine, my, my life it's mine, It's the story of my life, that's right, There's more to me than meets the eye, And now I sing, na na na na na na, Hey! Hey! Hey! My Life it's mine my, my life it's mine. My life yeah I'm gonna be me, yeah I'm gonna believe it's right! My life yeah I gotta be me, yeah I gotta believe it's right! The story of my life, it's mine, I made it on my own, that's right And now I sing, na na na na na na, Hey! Hey! Hey! My life it's mine, my my life it's mine, It's the story of my life, that's right, There's more to me than meets the eye, And now I sing, na na na na na na, Hey! Hey! Hey! My life it's mine, my my life it's mine. I don't care, What you say.
