Serhat

The Sammarinese entry appears likely to be the most multinational participant of this year's contest, with several countries involved in the project, showing the real image of Europe: different cultures, traditions and histories under the same flag for the smallest country taking part in the contest. 

Serhat is a successful singer, producer and TV-host who chose to work in the show-business after completing his education in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Istanbul.

He entered the world of television with Riziko, the Turkish version of America’s legendary Jeopardy, where he was both the producer and the presenter.

Serhat’s international music career had huge success with the single Total Disguise, performed in a duet with Viktor Lazlo who presented the 1987 Eurovision Song Contest. His following single Chocolate Flavour became another popular hit, especially in Greece. In 2007 he collaborated with the Russian/Georgian star Tamara Gverdtsiteli. They performed together in concerts in Moscow, Belarus and Moldova.

19 years ago Serhat founded the National and International High Schools Music Contest and has been guiding and coaching talented young musicians. Since 2013 Serhat’s music career has been based in France and Germany. His latest single Je M’adore was Number 1 for five weeks in a row in the German DJ Charts.

Lyrics of I Didn't Know

I want to stay with you tonight
Far from every sight and every fear
I got to be inside your mind
And hide into your arms
You have to see this love is real
Come along and live with my emotions
From now on we'll make a deal
To thrill everything we feel

I want to sleep upon your skin
Run against the wind to reach your passion
I lay my future in your hands
We'll dance under the stars
I need you more and more each day
I've got to say I am addicted
We'll sail together through the skies
Your eyes never told me lies

I didn't know
That I'm falling for you
And my dreams could come true
I didn't know
That you're warm like the sun
Our life has just begun
I didn't know
You're the one for me
I thought I'd never find
I didn't know
That you wished for the moon
To provide me the light

I didn't know
That I'm falling for you
And my dreams could come true
I didn't know
That you're warm like the sun
Our life has just begun
I didn't know
That you're freezing the time
Just to make you all mine
I didn't know
With every beat of your heart
I'm melting into you

I didn't know
That I'm falling for you
And my dreams could come true
I didn't know
That you're warm like the sun
Our life has just begun
I didn't know
You're the one for me
I thought I'd never find
I didn't know
I didn't know
I didn't know

I didn't know
Je veux être avec toi ce soir
Loin de tous les regards et toutes les peures
Je veux être dans ton esprit
Et me cacher dans tes bras
Tu dois comprendre que cet amour est reel
Viens et vis avec mes émotions
A partir de maintenant, faisons un pacte:
Faire vibrer tout ce que l’on ressent

Je veux dormir sur ta peau
Courir contre le vent pour atteindre ta passion
Je dépose mon avenir entre tes mains
Nous danserons sous les étoiles
J’ai besoin de toi de plus en plus chaque jour
Je dois dire que je suis envouté
Nous naviguerons ensemble sous les cieux
Tes yeux ne m’ont jamais menti

Je ne savais pas
Que je tombais amoureux de toi
Et que mes rêves pouvaient devenir réalité
Je ne savais pas
Que tu étais ardente comme le soleil
Notre vie vient de commencer
Je ne savais pas
Que tu étais la seule pour moi
Celle que je ne pensais jamais trouver
Je ne savais pas
Que tu rêvais de la lune
Pour m'apporter la lumière

Je ne savais pas
Que je tombais amoureux de toi
Et que mes rêves pouvaient devenir réalité
Je ne savais pas
Que tu étais ardente comme le soleil
Notre vie vient de commencer
Je ne savais pas
Que tu suspendais le temps
Juste pour t'offrir toute à moi
Je ne savais pas
Qu’avec chaque battement de ton coeur
Je vais me fondre en toi

Je ne savais pas
Que je tombais amoureux de toi
Et que mes rêves pouvaient devenir réalité
Je ne savais pas
Que tu étais ardente comme le soleil
Notre vie vient de commencer
Je ne savais pas
Que tu étais la seule pour moi
Celle que je ne pensais jamais trouver
Je ne savais pas
Je ne savais pas
Je ne savais pas

Je ne savais pas
