Lighthouse X

Lighthouse X is a pop group with a mission: Making the world a slightly better place through the power of music. They will represent Denmark in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Soldiers Of Love.

Lighthouse X consists of three artists who have come together in a strong fellowship. They believe it is possible to create a band that thinks differently. A band that takes social responsibility through music in a new and innovative way.

Lighthouse X represents a whole-hearted attempt at making a positive difference in the world, at inspiring attentive conversations in which we truly listen to one another and in establishing dialogue that makes us open up for all the things that excite us and scare us.

The goal is to harvest the power of music to make us all talk through our hearts, to make sure we share our thoughts and to create space and respect for each other. As the name suggests, Søren, Johannes and Martin wish to be a lighthouse that others can use for navigation – by being the change that they themselves wish to see in the world, while also inspiring and supporting other people who serve as guiding lights.

What you should know about Lighthouse X

What are the three most interesting aspects about your entry?

1. All three members work as actors and singers, and they have all performed in award-winning musicals.

3. When the clock hit midnight on New Year's Eve 2015, Lighthouse X performed on national TV, singing at the Opera House with the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir

Do you have a (lucky) routine before you go on stage?

We gather together, look at each other, deeply in the eyes, as we agree to have fun and to sing from the heart.

Why is the Eurovision Song Contest important for you?

It’s a platform of people coming together across all ages, genders, ethnicities and religious backgrounds, and along with this year’s theme, Come Together, it corresponds perfectly with the core message of Soldiers of Love.

Lyrics of Soldiers Of Love

Tell me why we always fuel the fire
Why we tend to close our eyes
What’s the reason that we keep on hiding
We can make it if we try

I don’t know
Why we don’t care
There’s nothing to fear
When I know you are there
So let’s not wait
For someone else to
Make it right
Make it right

Take my hand
And never let go
Side by side
We walk an open road
Unbreakable
With hope in our hearts
Step by step
We’ll make a new start

Let’s be soldiers of love
soldiers of love
soldiers of love
For life
Take my hand
And never let go
Never let go
And let’s be soldiers of love

What’s the meaning of a world on fire
And a heart without a soul
I believe that we can shine a light on
What we already ought to know

So let’s not wait
For someone else to
Make it right
Make it right

Take my hand
And never let go
Side by side
We walk an open road
Unbreakable
With hope in our hearts
Step by step
We’ll make a new start

Let’s be soldiers of love
soldiers of love
soldiers of love
For life
Take my hand
And never let go
Never let go
And let’s be soldiers of love

Unbreakable
Don’t let it go
It’s an open road
Time to let it show
Invincible
Gonna climb the wall

Take my hand
And never let go
Never let go

Take my hand
And never let go
Side by side
We walk an open road
Unbreakable
With hope in our hearts
Step by step
We’ll make a new start

Let’s be soldiers of love
soldiers of love
soldiers of love
For life
Take my hand
And never let go
Never let go
And let’s be soldiers of love
Dis moi pourquoi nous attisons toujours le feu
Pourquoi nous avons un penchant à fermer nos yeux
Pour quelle raison nous continuons à nous cacher
Nous pouvons y arriver si l'on essaye

Je ne sais pas
Pourquoi ça nous est égal
Il n'y a pas à de crainte à avoir
Quand je sais que tu es là
Alors n'attendons plus
Personne d'autre
Pour le faire bien
Pour le faire bien

Prends ma main
Et ne la lâche pas
Côte à cote
Nous marchons sur la route
Incassables
Avec de l'espoir plein nos cœurs
Pas à pas
Nous prendrons un nouveau départ

Soyons des soldats de l'amour
des soldats de l'amour
des soldats de l'amour
Pour la vie
Prends ma main
Et ne la lâche pas
Ne la lâche jamais
Et soyons des soldats de l'amour

Quelle est la raison d'être d'un monde en feu
et d'un cœur sans âme
Je crois que nous pouvons faire la lumière sur
Ce que nous sommes censés déjà savoir

Alors n'attendons plus
Personne d'autre
Pour le faire bien
Pour le faire bien

Prends ma main
Et ne la lâche pas
Côte à cote
Nous marchons sur la route
Incassables
Avec de l'espoir plein nos cœurs
Pas à pas
Nous prendrons un nouveau départ

Soyons des soldats de l'amour
des soldats de l'amour
des soldats de l'amour
Pour la vie
Prends ma main
Et ne la lâche pas
Ne la lâche jamais
Et soyons des soldats de l'amour

Incassable
Ne rates pas l'occasion
C'est une route sans fin
Il est temps de la dévoiler
Invincible
Nous allons grimper au mur

Prends ma main
Et ne la lâche pas
Ne la lâche jamais

Prends ma main
Et ne la lâche pas
Côte à cote
Nous marchons sur une route sans fin
Incassables
Avec de l'espoir plein nos cœurs
Pas à pas
Nous prendrons un nouveau départ

Soyons des soldats de l'amour
des soldats de l'amour
des soldats de l'amour
Pour la vie
Prends ma main
Et ne la lâche pas
Ne la lâche jamais
Et soyons des soldats de l'amour
