SABA

In Denmark, 'Melodi Grand Prix' has taken place and we now have the Nordic nation's entry to the 68th Eurovision Song Contest - SABA will proudly fly the Danish flag with the song 'SAND'.

In 2023, SABA had a large and demanding role in the musical HAIR. Now, she is looking forward to making her mark as an artist and singer at the Eurovision Song Contest. With her entry SAND, she wants to inspire others to seize life and follow their dreams - whatever they might be and exactly as they are. 

SABA will perform the song SAND, which was written by some of the strongest songwriters out there. Behind the song is Melanie Wehbe - who has previously won Melodi Grand Prix as a songwriter, as well as Melodifestivalen in Sweden - alongside Jonas Thander, who has previously won the United Kingdom's pre-selection, and Pil Jeppesen.

SABA was adopted from Ethiopia when she was just eight months old and has roots in the West Jutland town of Ringkøbing. The artist wants to spread the message that life must be grasped, boundaries must be pushed and things must both be challenged and explored.

Lyrics of SAND

Yesterday is eating up my mind
You and me we couldn’t get it right
We were throwing memories in the air
Bits and pieces lying everywhere

Uh-uh-uh-uuh
Bits and pieces lying everywhere
Uh-uh-uh-uuh
Bits and pieces like we didn’t care

Shouldn’t be so hard
Like breathing under water
Baby, we’ve been in the blue
Didn’t see it coming
Falling into nothing
Ain’t there something we can do

Uh-uh-uh-uuh
I can feel you slipping through my hands
Uh-uh-uh-uuh
Guess we built a castle out of sand

Yesterday I had you by my side
Now we’re just like strangers in the night
Pictures of us lying on the floor
No, I can’t do this fighting anymore

Cause it shouldn’t be so hard
Like breathing under water
Baby, we’ve been in the blue
Didn’t see it coming
Falling into nothing
Ain’t there something we can do

Uh-uh-uh-uuh
I can feel you slipping through my hands
Uh-uh-uh-uuh
Guess we built a castle out of sand

Sand,
Sand
I can feel you slipping through my hands
Sand,
Sand,
Guess we built a castle out of sand

Shouldn’t be so hard
Like breathing underwater

Shouldn’t be so hard
Like breathing underwater
Uh-uh-uh-uuh yeaaa


Sand,
Sand,
I can feel you slipping through my hands
Sand,
Sand
Guess we built a castle out of sand
